Why Try a Smart Garage Door Opener

If you’ve got a smart thermostat and smart appliance, you may be asking what you can automate next. A smart garage door opener may not have been top of mind, but there are many benefits to giving one a try.

Better Security 

It happens to all of us: Midway through the workday, you start to wonder if you left the garage door open. You move into panic mode, imagining that your premium sports gear, fancy hobby equipment, and family memorabilia are exposed to the elements and to a potential thief.

With a smart garage door opener, you can get notifications on your smartphone if the door is left open.  You can then open or close the garage door using your phone for better security. You will also get notifications if there is anything suspicious, say if the garage door opened unexpectedly and you didn’t authorize it.

Let Anyone Into the Home

An attached garage can be a convenient way to let cleaners, handymen, or other workers into the home. You can either open the door on demand or schedule the garage door to open or close at a particular time of the day, so that workers can get in and get out.

With a smart garage door opener, you can open the garage door to grant access without needing to be at home. This allows you to save time and still get the services you need.

Peace of Mind

Peace of mind isn’t usually a concept you associate with your garage, until you think about the security angle. Just as other smart home devices let you check in on your home and monitor any potential problems, delivering peace of mind, so does a smart garage door opener. You can check in to see if you, your children, or your cleaner left the door ajar. Notifications sent directly to your smartphone make it easy for you to keep things safe whether you’re at work or on vacation half a world away.

Full Integration With Smart Home Technology 

If you love the simplicity of smart devices for your home, then it makes sense to expand your system with a device to automate garage door access.
Some smart garage door openers even integrate with other smart things. For instance, the smart garage door opener can interface with carbon monoxide or smoke detectors to open the garage door if smoke is detected.

Try a Smart Garage Door Opener

Smart garage door openers are designed to retrofit with your existing garage door opener, which means you don’t need to acclimate to a brand new opener or worry about programming another tool. However, these only work with newer styles of garage door mechanisms. If your garage door is over fifteen years old, then a smart opener won’t be likely to work. To be certain, check what garage mechanism you have and then review the product specifications.

I was given a very fair quote. A week later a tech came and installed. Then came back to install lock. Tech was very professional and polite. Spen time with me making adjustments to my liking. I totally recommend Overhead door to my fellow Okies.

Overhead Door did a great job. They got me on the schedule the next day and fixed my spring in 30 minutes or less. Joe was great, professional, and courteous. Awesome service, and he didn't tell me I needed extra materials like the previous garage door people that quoted me $575. Overhead Door told me a price over the phone and it didn't change. I'd recommend them every time.

Pleased with their services. Coil spring broke and door stopped working. Spoke to Ron, and less than 24 hrs later the technician had us up n running again. These guys did exactly what they promised to do, with no nonsense. I like that.

I had called overhead doors because there was something wrong with my door. I had no clue what was wrong. The door technician they sent out was Amazing. He was fast pace,clean,organized and also showed/told me what all he was doing. Derick S. Is the reason why I will keep going back to them. He made sure he cleaned up his mess before leaving, he really went above and beyond. Request Derick for your service.
