Left the Garage Door Open? Close It with Your Phone!


Left the Garage Door Open? Close It with Your Phone!

Your garage door is an incredibly important part of your home. It’s part of your overall aesthetic, helping you achieve your desired look and feel, while improving curb appeal. It’s part of your home’s security, ensuring that intruders are kept outside. It also allows you to pull your car into and out of your garage, ensuring that you enjoy more convenience. However, for all that, your door can be a challenge.

Opening and Closing

If you have a garage door, then it opens and closes to allow ingress and egress. Chances are good that you also have an electric garage door opener. After all, getting in and out of the car to open or close the garage door is annoying. It can also be frustrating, particularly in inclement weather. Of course, opening and closing your garage door with an electric opener isn’t without its challenges.

For instance, how many times have you forgotten to close the door after backing your car out? That eliminates the additional security it provides, particularly if you did not lock the door that leads from the garage into the house. It also allows animals into the garage, and it can even increase your utility bills.

In the past, your only options were to drive back home to shut the door yourself, or contact a friend or family member to close it for you. Of course, neither of those options worked all the time, meaning that in some instances, you might be forced to leave the garage standing wide open until you returned home in the evening. That’s no longer the case. You can use a smartphone app to close your garage door from afar.

Garage Door Apps

You’ll find a host of different apps on the market that allow you to open and close your garage door remotely. There are garage door openers with apps developed specifically for them, but you’ll also find third party apps available for both iOS and Android devices that you can download from your preferred app store. Just install the app, set it up, set your security protocols, and you’re able to open and close the garage door from any location where you have data signal or Wi-Fi.

Choose the Right Garage Door

While smartphone apps offer undeniable peace of mind about leaving the garage door open or closed, the most important thing is to make sure you have a high-quality garage door installed in the first place.
