Smart garage door benefits


The team here at Huddersfield Garage Doors have been working on garage doors for years now, and this experience allows them to assist you in any of your needs. One feature that has seriously developed and become more common over the past decade is the smart garage door. These allow you to control and monitor your garage door opener from a device that is connected to the internet.

But how could you benefit?

Use less electricity

A traditional garage door is constantly in standby mode, meaning it is using a lot more electricity than it needs to. But if you opt for a smart garage door, you can switch the power off at any time using an electronic device (mobile phone, laptop etc.), allowing you to reduce the carbon footprint of your home.

Improved security and safety

One fantastic feature of a smart garage door is that you can set a timer on the door so that it is only open for a certain window. For example, if you leave for work every morning at 8:00am, you can set the garage door to be open between 7:50am and 8:10am, then lock after the window. This feature massively increases the security of your home and the safety of you and your family.

Monitor activity inside your home

Arguably the most important feature to a smart garage door, they allow you to monitor activity inside your home at any time. If you have a power cut whilst you’re out, you will know you have to open your garage door manually. If you have family members who need to be home at a certain time, you can get alerts set up on your phone to notify you the times that the door was opened.

Smart garage doors can be fitted as an accessory on to your new motorised garage door from the extensive range of quality garage doors at Huddersfield Garage Doors. For more advice, consult our specialists by giving them a call on 01484 829 612.
