Top Benefits of a Smart Garage Door Opener

March 11, 2020

A smart garage door opener is a new technology that allows you to control and monitor the operation of the garage door opener from any Wi-Fi enabled device or with Internet access. These garage door openers are connected to your home’s internet service, password protected and use encryption to protect your family, home and your belongings. Here are the top benefits of a smart garage door opener. 

Energy Efficiency 

Conventional garage door openers are always in standby mode and just waiting for the door button to be pressed. Thanks to a smart garage door opener, you can turn off the entire system when you are not at home. In this way, you can reduce the electricity consumption and carbon footprint of your home. 

Safety and Security

The intelligent mechanism for opening the garage door provides your home with an additional dimension of security. The security dimension actually works on two levels: you need to know if the door is open when you are not at home, and constantly monitor who comes and goes. The associated smartphone application allows authorized users to open the door at the touch of a button which in turn records the event in the log along with the name of the person who did it and notifies you of any opening or closing of the door even if the door is opened manually by replacing the electrically opened opener. 

Open or closed alerts can be customized to only be sent at certain times. For example, when you are at work or on vacation 


Quality and smart garage doors in Wichita can connect to Apple HomeKit and other smart devices. There are so many products, but it’s really not difficult to find the best ones and learn how to relate to what you already have. The synchronization of the smart home with the platform is perfect, and there are many third-party applications that you can use to connect to already established home devices. When it comes to smart garage openers, you can be picky, because there are so many, and most of them are built into your smart home. 

Smart Monitoring 

Thanks to the intelligent mechanisms of garage door openers, you can monitor garage activity. In the event of a power failure, you know that after returning home you need to manually operate the garage door. If you have teenagers of driving age who have a curfew, the intelligent garage door opener shows if and when the garage door has been opened or closed. You can even configure your system to show which remote control has been used to open the garage door.


Thanks to the versatility of intelligent garage door openers, you can open and close your garage door from anywhere in the world. If you are not at home and need to open a large delivery door for a friend to access or because your partner lost the keys, it’s easy. It also means that you don’t have to issue temporary access codes for people you don’t want. Many intelligent garage door opener mechanisms connect the receiver to an existing opener. The installation takes about half an hour and can be carried out without specialized electrical knowledge. After configuring the hardware, simply download the smartphone opener application, enter the Wi-Fi password and start.

Automatically Opens and Closes

People often do you go out and leave the garage door open either due to laziness or forgetfulness. This problem can easily be solved with the help of an intelligent garage door opener. Some systems offer automatic closing and opening when they sense that the car is leaving the driveway. 

Simply insert the presence sensor into the car and a multisensor in the garage to detect movement. After configuring this system, the door will automatically close every time you leave the garage, sit in the car and open automatically every time you return.

    I like that you mentioned how you could reduce the electricity consumption and carbon footprint of your house with a smart garage door opener. We are currently renovating our garage and we have decided to change the garage door and opener for it too. We’ll probably ask for smart garage door opener installation services since I heard smart systems are what’s trending nowadays.
