Smart garage door openers are ideal for your home in terms of both safety and convenience. They connect your existing garage door to an app on your smartphone through your home’s WIFI so that you can monitor and control the door from your phone. With the touch of a button, you can control your garage door from anywhere!
Gone are the days when you need to turn around to check whether you closed the garage door or not. By using the app, you can see if your door is closed and close it from wherever you are. An open garage door gives anyone an easy access to your home so having a smart garage door opener is one simple way to keep your home more secure. It can even send you an alert if your door has been open too long or has been opened without authorization.
Smart garage door openers are another easy way to simplify your life and give you a greater peace of mind!
As the name of this type of garage door opener suggests, it uses a metal chain to pull or push a trolley that lifts and lowers the garage door. It is the most affordable option which makes it a very popular choice; however, it may not be the best option for your home. Chain-drive door openers are known to be quite noisy which can potentially make them inconvenient. If you have a bedroom or other living space located above your garage, it is probably best to go with another quieter option. Chain-drive openers are best when used for a garage that are detached from the house.
Rather than using chains, belt-drive garage door openers use rubber belts to slide the trolley to open and close the garage door. Although these openers are generally more expensive, the rubber belt allows them to operate much more smoothly and quietly. Since there are fewer moving parts and no metal-on-metal contact, they also require less maintenance. Belt-drive openers are ideal for these reasons, especially if you have an attached garage with living space over it.
