Chamberlain Garage Opener - Wifi

What is a Smart WiFi Garage Door Opener?

A smart garage door opener comes in many forms; primarily, they connect with your existing garage door and a smartphone app, allowing you to monitor and control your garage from your mobile device.

You know the feeling of driving away from your home, being already 10 or so km away, and wondering if you’ve shut your garage door? We’ve all been there. It’s terrible. Your garage door is one of the most important entrances to your home, it’s essentially an invitation for thieves to enter.

That’s not what we want – for us, or for you. We want you to protect your family with smart devices, which is why smart garage door openers are ideal for all homeowners. Not only do these products provide peace of mind as you leave for work or head out to grab a few groceries at your local store, but it’s also essential for smart home safety.

Chain-Drive Garage Door Opener

On a chain-driven garage door opener, a metal chain drives the trolley that elevates and lowers the door. Of all the different types of garage door openers, the chain drive option is generally the lowest priced, making it a popular choice among many homeowners. However, chain drive openers can also be noisy due to the movements of the chain. Therefore, chain drive openers can be an inconvenience for noise-sensitive people. Basically, the chain drive is known to be:

  • Inexpensive
  • Noisy

Chain drives are best for properties where the garage is detached from the house. If you live in a home where the garage is situated directly under a bedroom or living area, you’re probably better off with one of the other options.

Belt-Drive Garage Door Opener

On a belt-driven garage door opener, a rubber belt is used to slide the trolley when the door is activated to open or close. Since the trolley moves over rubber instead of metal, the motions are smoother and quieter. Likewise, a door that runs on a belt drive will produce less vibrations than a door that opens and shuts via chains. Thanks to the reduced number of moving parts, belt drives require less frequent maintenance than chain drives. Essentially, belt drive openers are ideal because they’re:

  • Quiet
  • Low Maintenance

Belt drive openers are good for any type of house, but they’re especially recommended for homes that feature a garage directly below or beside a bedroom or living area.
