We have “smart” cars, “smart” TVs, “smart” phones – our everyday life objects are more connected than ever, allowing us to go beyond what we thought could be possible. Who would have thought that one day you could control your garage door with a tap on your smart phone?
Did I close the garage door… or not? Sounds familiar?
We’ve all been there, right? Did I lock the door before leaving? Did I turn off the stove? Did I close the garage door? Life is going at 100 miles per hour: we have our smart phones to remember contacts’ phone numbers, emails, and even birthdays. So why not use our smart phones to control our garage doors and make sure they’re closed, even if we’ve already left home? Let’s ditch the old garage door opener and welcome the new generation of openers which are geared up for the task!
LET’S TAKE THE LIFTMASTER MYQ APP FOR INSTANCE. WHEN COUPLED WITH THE RIGHT OPENER / ACCESSORIES (THE EASIEST WAY IS TO GO WITH A NEW OPENER MODEL #8550W), YOU COULD GET ALERTS WHEN YOUR GARAGE DOOR HAS BEEN OPEN FOR TOO LONG OR OPEN IT FOR FRIENDS OR FAMILY. THIS IS A BRAND NEW WAY OF USING YOUR GOOD OLD GARAGE DOOR!
There is still more! Tired of returning to a dark home at night?
Ever thought of controlling the lights in your home so you’d never drive up to a dark home again? But it’s expensive right? Well, fear no more. Just use a Wireless Light Control from LiftMaster (model #825LM) or even a Remote Light Switch (model #823LM). This way you’ll be able to turn on the lights using your smart phone or via your opener’s remote control!
Ever wonder if your pet is being a “good boy” throughout the day? You can look at him!
At this point, the MyQ App from LiftMaster allows you to control almost every aspect of your garage, so why not add another component to finally get a smart garage? A Nest Cam indoor security camera will allow you to take a look at what’s going on in your garage throughout the day from the MyQ App on your smart phone. If you receive deliveries for your home business, without being home, you could take a look to make sure everything is alright while the delivery happens. Or you could talk to your pet, through the cam, to reassure him that you’ll be back soon.
See, even your garage could be a smart garage! But there’s more!
What if I said you could get all of the above, and even more, without paying for it? Yes, it’s possible!
