In an increasingly digital world, it is not surprising that garage door gadgets are also becoming more sophisticated and technological in nature. Whilst automated garage doors (sometimes called electric doors) have been around for a while, recently gadgets have been developed which complement the existing features of these doors.
One such gadget consists of an app that can be downloaded onto a smart phone and a sensor, which will work with your existing garage door opener. Once installed, the app enables the user to open and close the door from anywhere using their smartphone. One of the benefits of this is no more fumbling around trying to find a remote control opener, as well as always being able to operate the door, whether you are inside or outside the house. As long as you have your mobile phone with you, you will be able to operate the garage door.
Another added bonus of these new gadget is that it can also allow you to monitor your garage. If you wish, you can opt to receive notifications on your phone whenever your garage door is opened or closed. This feature allows users to be alerted if any unusual activity is taking place. This can provide great peace of mind if you use your garage as extra storage space and keep valuable items such as sports equipment or garden furniture in it.
