In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some basics on smartphones and their ability to serve as a secondary – or even primary – garage opener. Using basic Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, it’s easy to connect your phone to your garage for a number of possible benefits. 

At Crawford Door Sales, we’re happy to help clients around Salt Lake City and other parts of Utah with all their garage door needs, including garage door operators and other related components. Here are some of the further major benefits of this kind of setup.

Pre-Scheduling Opening and Closing

One of the great features of having a smartphone-connected garage door opener is the ability to pre-schedule when your garage door opens and closes. This can be extremely helpful for people who need to leave their house at a certain time or those who want to keep their home secured after they go to bed.

This can also be beneficial for homes where people come home at different times. If your kids get home from school before you, you can simply program the garage door to open at an earlier time so that they can get in without waiting for you.

Increased Security

Having a secure connection between your phone and your garage can also help you keep your home more secure. By adding an additional layer of security, you can ensure that only authorized users are able to access the garage door operator. This can help prevent intruders from gaining access to your home.

Additionally, you can be alerted when the garage door is used, so that if someone else is trying to gain access without your knowledge, you can take action quickly.

Easy to Integrate With Other Smart Features

Many homeowners are upgrading their homes with different smart features, such as lighting and climate control. Connecting your garage door opener to your phone can make it easier to integrate those other systems so that you can control all the features of your home from one place.

For instance, you could have your lights come on when the garage door opens and then turn off when it closes. This can be a great way to make sure that you don’t leave the lights on unnecessarily or forget to turn them off before leaving for work in the morning.

No Range or Hardware Issues

Unlike traditional garage door openers that are limited by the range of their remotes, smartphone-connected openers can usually be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection. This means that if you’re away from home and need to open your garage door, you don’t have to worry about whether or not your remote will work.

In addition, there’s no hardware to replace or maintain. You won’t have to worry about changing the batteries in a remote or ensuring that the connection is still working properly.

These are just some of the major benefits of having your garage door opener connected to your phone. If you’re interested in taking advantage of this technology or learning about any of our other garage door products or services, contact Crawford Door Sales today for more information!
