6 Reasons to Upgrade to a New Garage Door Opener
Not long ago every garage door opener remote basically looked like this:
But today your new garage door opener remote can look like this:
Thanks to mobile tech and wi-fi compatibility your new garage door opener can be part of your home automation and keep you aware of the status of your garage door when you’re at work, on vacation, or anywhere else.
And these new garage door openers have features you might not be enjoying with your older model.
1. Battery Backup
Having battery backup has become a necessity for those who live in rural areas or in places subject to natural disasters and other disruptions of power.
New garage door openers with battery backup permit up to 50 openings and closings during the first 24 hours of a power outage.
2. Virtual Keys for Visitors
The new garage door openers allow you to provide anyone who has a mobile phone to have access on the date and time you specify.
That means a friend returning your lawn mower while you’re on vacation can open the door tomorrow between noon and 4PM when he said he’d be there.
It also means that the landscaper who visits every Thursday from 10 AM to 2PM can have access on a recurring basis for that day of the week and time of day. And when he sends an email telling you this week he’ll have to come on Friday, it’s a quick fix on your app to make the change.
3. Better Safety with Audible & Visual Alerts
You can open and close these new garage door openers remotely from anywhere where you’re connected to the internet.
And now they incorporate UL 325 compliant audible and visual signals. So children and pets are alerted by audible and visual alarms from the operators’ motorhead prior to any door movement.
4. Instant Alerts
You can also receive immediate alerts on your mobile phone any time your new garage door opener is operated by another user. You can also confirm whether your garage door is currently open or closed and who operated it when. So you know who’s coming and going even when you’re not home to see it.
5. Save Energy with Timed Closing
Stop heating and cooling the great outdoors. You can program your new garage door opener to automatically close after a time your specify. So your garage never needs to be gaping open for hours because someone forgot to close it.
6. Improved Security
The best new garage door openers use a digital key that changes the access code after every use. That’s an extra layer of security and peace of mind that older openers just can’t match.
