Remember when automatic Garage Door Openers were just a one button affair?
Garage tech has come a long way since then. From rolling security codes to safety beams and smart apps, it’s hard to know which features will best suit the needs of you and your family.
James Diab, Product Marketing Manager at Chamberlain, says there are several considerations when purchasing a new garage door opener, and it all depends on your individual circumstances.
“Chamberlain’s Garage Door Openers and accessories come with a range of features to fit every family lifestyle and are designed to become seamlessly integrated into your home. Choosing which accessories and models will best support your family depends on your safety, security and convenience needs,” says James.
With these considerations in mind, check out our tips below to help you find the best garage door opener and accessories for your family.
While all Chamberlain Garage Door Openers come complete with premium security features, there are some accessories you can purchase for extra peace of mind and control.
The myQ Connectivity Kit has innovative technology that sends real-time notifications every time the door is opened, so you can be certain your garage is secure, even if you aren’t at home.
“myQ technology is a Chamberlain customer favourite, with this smart technology allowing homeowners to remain in control of their garage door, anywhere and anytime. myQ smart technology is engineered to conveniently connect you to your garage, providing increased control of your home security,” says James.
You can also use the Wireless Security Keypad to ensure that you have access to your home without your keys or a remote, and grant access to friends or family members without having to leave the keys out or door unlocked.
If you have small children or pets in your home, safety is the priority when choosing a garage door opener. Chamberlain’s Obstruction Detection Beams are designed to reverse the door in two seconds if it senses an obstruction in the doorway.
“The Obstruction Detection Beams can ensure homeowners are confident that children and pets will not be injured, and that bikes or cars won’t be damaged by the door. It’s a very important feature that is compatible with many of our opener models,” says James.
When the power goes out, you’ll want to ensure that you can exit the garage safely, especially if you keep your car in the garage. Many of Chamberlain’s Garage Door Openers are also compatible with Battery Backup, so you are able to exit the garage in the event of a power failure.
Chamberlain’s openers and accessories are designed to make life a little easier, with innovative features that connect seamlessly to your routine.
“If you often move between homes or need to access a friends/parent’s garage, the Chamberlain Universal Remote can be programmed to two different branded garage doors at two different locations, ensuring safe and secure access to the garage,” says James.
“Chamberlain also has a range of Car Visor Remotes to ensure you aren’t fumbling with keys or remotes in your driveway, making it simple and convenient to open your garage when you come home.”
