One of the easiest ways to upgrade your home with “smart technologies” is with a smart garage door opener. When I built my new home, we researched all the options and decided to go with the LiftMaster smart garage door openers. With the smart garage door openers from LiftMaster, homeowners have the ability to control their garage door from anywhere using their smartphone and the myQ app. The LiftMaster smart
garage door opener sends you notifications when your door opens or closes. Great for seeing if your kids get out the door for school or when they return at the end of the school day. Did you leave your house or get to work and forget if you closed your garage door? No worries! Simply open the myQ app and check the current position of your garage door and close it from your smartphone. Smart garage door openers also enable secure in-garage delivery for Amazon Prime packages. Check availability for Key by Amazon in your area. Another option is the Chamberlain myQ Smart Garage Door Hub which attaches to your existing door opener wirelessly and can control two doors (if you buy a second sensor) from one hub. It may not be compatible with all openers so be sure check its compatibility with your existing opener before purchasing. All in all, whether you are retrofitting your existing garage doors to be smart or buying/building new and wanting some modern conveniences, going with a smart garage door opener is an easy, relatively inexpensive way to upgrade something you and your family uses multiple times a day.
