With the tap of a screen, we control just about everything in our home. But when it comes to garage door openers, most of us have systems that are out of date and not ‘smart.’ This season, give the gift of convenience with a wifi garage door opener.
What’s a wifi garage door opener
A wifi garage door opener, or smart garage door opener, “allows for remote control and monitoring of the garage door directly from an app on a smartphone.” Which means no more uh-oh moments of “did I close the garage door?” You can quickly check your phone for peace of mind.
These openers work from a built-in sensor that communicates directly with your router. Which eliminates your need for a traditional controller. They also fit into your overall home automation system. So systems like lighting, heating, and security are in one place.
The average adult spends two hours and 55 minutes on their smartphone every day. Why not have the convenience of one more smartphone integration? A wifi garage door opener app does more than open and close your door from a distance. It can also alert you if the door’s been open too long or if someone opened it manually. And you can program it to close on a schedule, like x number of minutes after you leave the house or go to bed.
