Garage door openers bring incredible convenience to our lives. Just think about the last time you pulled into your driveway in a rainstorm and opened your garage door at the press of a button. But just when you thought garage door openers couldn’t get any more convenient, Wi-Fi-connected garage doors hit the market.
Today, smart garage door openers unlock a number of benefits and great conveniences for homeowners. What types of benefits and conveniences? Here’s a look at everything you can do with a Wi-Fi garage door opener.
Open and Close Your Garage Door From Anywhere
No matter where you are in the world, you can open and close your garage door. All you need is a Wi-Fi connection. Sometimes you leave for vacation and stress the whole time that you forgot to close your garage door in the rush to get to the airport. Sometimes you need to open the garage door for a service provider or delivery when you are not home. Sometimes you need to give family or friends access to your home. And sometimes you forget your keys and just need to use your Wi-Fi-enabled garage door opener as a “spare set.”
In each case listed above, a Wi-Fi garage door opener is essential for securing your home and allowing access when needed.
Get Push Notifications
Smart Wi-Fi garage door openers can be used to monitor access to your home. In fact, you can configure your devices to receive push notifications whenever your garage door opens and closes.
This can be helpful if you want to know when your kids get home from school or you want to confirm that you did not, in fact, leave your garage door open before heading out for vacation. Most importantly, push notifications from a Wi-Fi garage door opener can let you know if someone gains access to your home who shouldn’t have.
Set Up In-Garage Delivery
In select cities, Amazon now offers in-garage delivery. Key by Amazon is available to select Prime members, and it allows for one of the safest and most secure delivery methods you can find. All you have to do is sync your myQ® account within the free-to-download Key app. Once it’s up and running, you can have your Amazon packages delivered using the power of your Wi-Fi garage door opener.
Schedule Garage Lights
Garage lighting is incredibly helpful at certain times of the day. Using smart garage door openers, you can set a schedule for when your garage door lights turn off and on. This is also helpful when you’re traveling and want to put your home’s lights on timers.
