But what about your garage and garage door?
While there are tons of products on the market like the ring doorbell for your front door or cameras monitoring the outside of your home, there are a lot of awesome updates you can make to your garage door to make it smart and safe!
Here are a few of our favorites:
There are a lot of great options for a smart garage door opener.
We love installing the LiftMaster smart opener but Chamberlain and Ryobi also make their own models.
These openers provide a battery backup option, which means if the power is down, you can still operate your garage door. This is not just a smart feature but a safety feature as well. In the event of an emergency, you can access your vehicle easily!
These openers also feature WiFi, which means with the accompanying app, you can control your garage door with your phone. This includes opening or closing it remotely and more!
You can even set timers on your garage door, for example, to close after 10 minutes of being opened. This gives many homeowners peace of mind that if they’ve forgotten to close their door after driving away, it will be closed in a few minutes!
Garadget is a cheap device that adds voice control and remote access to any existing garage door opener.
The unit comes with a sensor that can monitor if the garage door is open or closed.
