Nowadays, we’re all a bit addicted to our cellphones and all the must‑have apps out there. But did you know that you can now, thanks to one of these apps, open and close your garage door from your smartphone? A perfect solution to those times in our fast‑paced lives when we wonder “Did I forget to close the garage door?”
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 smartphone?
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 an hour: we have smartphones to remember the phone numbers, emails, and even birthdays of the people around us. So why not use our smartphones 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 LiftMaster openers which are geared up for the task!
With a full range of innovative features like smartphone control, battery backup and advanced security features, LiftMaster's Elite Series door openers give you peace of mind knowing your garage remains secure at all times. You can receive alerts when your garage door has been left open and you can even make sure it closes automatically with a built-in timer‑to‑close feature. Interested?

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 smartphone or via your opener’s remote control! If you’d like to know more, click here.
Ever wonder if your pet is being a “good boy” throughout the day? Now you can be sure!
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 all day long from the MyQ App on your smartphone. You could even talk to your pet, through the cam, to reassure him that you’ll be back soon. As well, if you receive deliveries during the day while you’re not home, you could take a look to make sure everything is alright while the delivery happens.
See, even your garage could be a smart garage! But there’s more!
