Advantages of Modern Technology

Garage door remotes are easy to use because the door can be opened or closed with the push of a button. But, for the remote to work, it is necessary to be within a certain range of the garage door. If you are too far away, then pushing the button won’t do a thing.

As technology has advanced, manufacturers are looking for ways to improve the usability of tools around the house. New technology has made it possible for you to control the garage door by checking your smartphone. This tool allows you to check the status of your garage door from anywhere in the world.

How Does it Work?

If you choose a garage door opener that includes this feature, then the garage door opener needs to be connected to your account that is synced with your device. An app can be installed on your smartphone or tablet. The garage door opener communicates through a WiFi connection in your home, and that information can be viewed and controlled on your device.

What type of information can you get from the app? With the touch of a screen, you can find details such as:

  • When the garage door opener is activated to open or close
  • If someone is manually opening or closing the garage door
  • History of the dates and times when the garage door was opened and closed

Not only can you look up information about your garage door activity, but you can also control the garage door from anywhere. You can push a button on your smartphone to close or open the garage. This feature improves the safety of your home, giving you the peace of mind to know that your family is protected.
