Smart Garage Door Openers and Smart Homes
May 31, 2016
The surge of popularity in smart home innovation has technology seeping into so many different aspects of our homes. What began with simple things like home security and lighting automation has spread to locks and climate control, irrigation, window treatments, and now even your garage door is getting in on the action. The cool thing about this new smart craze is its amazing ability to be customized to each individual, allowing you to set up systems that work for you.
What is a “Smart Home” System?
These days the term “smart home” can really describe a number of things. Generally it refers to fully automated systems, sometimes with voice activated hubs, that control multiple aspects of your home. Integrating lights, temperature control, and door locks, some can even “learn” your habits and adjust various appliances accordingly. There are many products on the market, some control individual systems, some control many. These different systems are run by a computer program and controlled through WiFi.
What is a Smart Garage Door Opener?
A smart garage door opener is simply an opener equipped with either a wireless receiver or Bluetooth technology. These openers can be set up to simply operate with a cell phone or be fully integrated with a smart home system. Just as with other smart products, the sky's really the limit in how you want your home to run. There are systems that allow you to control your garage door remotely from anywhere in the world, which can be very convenient when your home continues to run, even when you are not home. You can also be notified when the door is opened with activity alerts allowing you to fully monitor your home when you are away.
