Hi Google – Play Lewis Capaldi….and Open my Garage Door

As each year passes, we become more accustomed to smarter and more efficient means of conducting transactions and accessing information and services.

  • Voice activated home systems e.g. Amazon Alexa and Google Home
  • Contactless payment on debit and credit cards up to £30
  • Apple Play systems in many new cars
  • Online shopping and delivery with Tesco, Sainsburys, Asda, M&S...etc
  • Just Eat and Deliveroo – Fast Food even faster and more convenient
  • Uber cabs

Home Automation Products

The advancement of smart home automation products is no exception. In the early days, uptake was steady, however, with more mainstream pricing and wider uptake and availability of products, home automation is now really starting to take hold.

Thermostats (Nest & Hive), Indoor and outdoor cameras, Ring doorbells, smart light bulbs and plugs, indoor shading, Lawnmowers, TV’s…etc., the list is ever-growing.

The integration with voice activated commands has certainly helped this and we believe will continue to drive the market down the smart route.

But it’s just a garage door

Until you experience the convenience and the benefits it is understandable to think… “but it’s just a garage door!”

What’s in it for me? What are the benefits:

It’s perhaps true to say that having smart access to your garage won’t change your life, however it can make life that little bit easier. With many parents both working, or if you cannot be at home at to accept deliveries, it means remote access to your garage can enable you to grant entry to third parties for deliveries – Amazon, supermarkets, etc. You might also find it useful to remotely provide access through your garage for services such as window cleaners and gardeners.

Having smart control of your garage via your phone also means you don’t need to carry a remote and you can also give permissions to multiple users, negating the cost of purchasing addition handsets…once you have the smart technology set-up.

At Garage Door Systems we have been leading the way for years in the field of smart garage door operation with LiftMaster myQ – The worlds No.1 garage door opener and also with the introduction of Somfy Connexoon for our popular ThermaRoll range of insulated roller doors.

In addition to the traditional remote-control access, the garage doors can all be controlled via myQ and connexoon technology.

Once you purchase and set-up the necessary smart kits, the free apps allow you to keep an eye on the garage at all times and set notifications to inform you of changes to door open/closed status.
 The smart technology combines both monitoring and control of the garage door - anytime, anywhere.

Important note: Secondary safety photo beams are essential to close your garage door remotely in order to be compliant with the regulations EN 60335-1/2-95/2/103/ EN 12453.
