Choosing Your Perfect Garage Door

Hi there, my name is Benjamin Parsley. Welcome to my website. I am here to talk about the wide range of garage doors available for residential buildings. When I moved into my home, I wanted to immediately upgrade my garage door to suit my exact needs. The existing garage door just did not have the functions I needed to easily access my home. I found the perfect garage door and had it professionally installed to complete this project. On this website, I hope to explore the process of selecting a garage door from the vast selection available on the market today. Thank you.

3 Reasons To Get A Smart Garage Door Opener For Your Commercial Garage Door

by Rose Franklin

Your garage door can be a huge vulnerability to your business if you fail to maintain, replace and routinely make replacements. Therefore, if your commercial garage door is getting old, it's time to consider professional garage door installation. However, another decision you must consider is whether or not you want to install a smart garage opener. There are many amazing reasons to install a smart garage door opener, but check out these top three reasons.

Your Smartphone Accesses the Door

Nearly everyone knows the fear of realizing you left the garage door open. Unless you are still near the garage door and have a remote control, there's nothing you can do except turn around, go back and close the door manually. If you install a smart garage door opener, you have control of the garage door with your smartphone or tablet via the app.

This means that even if you are halfway down the road for a restful weekend away from work, you don't have to turn back and close your door. Simply pull over and close the door with just a touch of a button from anywhere. Even if you are out of the country, if you have mobile access, you can open and close your commercial garage doors.

You Can Monitor Your Door From Elsewhere

If you suddenly can't remember if you closed the garage door, you'll likely have to go check. This may mean disrupting an important meeting or simply wasting time away from your desk. Many smart garage door openers have monitors you can set in various places, such as your office, the lunch room, the conference room, etc. With a glance, the monitor lets you know if the door is open.

You can also usually monitor the door via the app, which means that even if you aren't in town, you can check to see if your garage door was left open. You may even be able to schedule alerts to let you know whenever the door opens, so you know if someone is entering your business when no one is supposed to be there.

You Can Make Schedules  

Perhaps one of the most exciting aspects of a smart garage door opener for your commercial garage door is that you can make schedules for when the door will open and close. This is particularly important if you completely forgot you left the door open because the app is useless if you forget to check it or if you have no mobile access. You can set the door to shut after so many minutes or hours. Don't worry about safety. Even the door is set to automatically close, it still has all the safety features of professionally installed commercial automatic garage doors, so it won't shut if something is in the way.

You can also set your own schedules as to when the door will open and when it will close. If your garage door is usually left open during the business day, you can schedule the doors to automatically open and close at the start and end of the business day. These automatic schedules can also be helpful if you need to let someone into your business, but don't want to give them a key or code. Also, by making schedules that automatically open the door, you don't have to worry about remembering to do it on your own in the app.

If you are getting a new commercial garage door professionally installed, don't forget to ask about smart garage door opener features, so you can protect your business even better. For more information, contact a garage door provider in your area today.
