Everything You Need to Know About Smart Garage Doors
If you’re like many people in Calgary, you open and close your garage door a lot. You probably already use a remote control to open it, so why not take it a step further by having Crowfoot & Crosstown Garage Door Services set you up with a smart garage door opener that can be controlled using your smartphone, tablet or computer from anywhere in the world?
How does a smart garage door work?
While older garage door remotes use radio frequencies to signal the door to open and close, smart garage doors use either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to know when to open. Instead of a separate remote that can be easily lost, you can control your door using the smartphone you probably have in your pocket.
While both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies allow your garage door opener to be controlled by your smartphone, they work somewhat differently from each other. The Bluetooth connection requires you to be within a range of your garage door to work, while a Wi-Fi connection uses your home’s internet signal and can be used from anywhere.
Benefits of a smart garage door opener
There are a lot of good reasons to have a smart garage door opener, including the following:
You won’t lose the controller: As long as you have your phone with you, you won’t have to worry about losing the garage door remote.
You’ll have peace of mind: If you ever find yourself wondering if you remembered to close it when you left the house, your Wi-Fi garage door opener lets you check no matter where you are. If you did forget, you can close it with the press of a button.
You can control who gets in: When you’re expecting a delivery, you can either use the app to remotely open the garage, or you can set up a temporary access code that will work only once.
It can become a part of your smart home: You can control your garage using the same app or hub you use for your lights and security system.
