What are the advantages of an automated garage door?
You don’t need to leave your vehicle
Whether you have security concerns and wish to be able to complete your journey in your car, or simply don’t like piling out into the cold or wet when you need to open the garage door, it makes sense to invest in a remote opening and closing system. Not only is it safer and almost effortless, a remote opening door enhances security.
Improvements in security
It’s fairly obvious that a door that’s difficult to open and shut is not going to be used as frequently as one that can be opened at the touch of a button, or with a voice command. If there is a temptation to leave your vehicle out overnight because storing it in the garage is just too much effort, it’s worth investing in an automated bifold garage door or similar. An automated door controller encourages you to use your garage, protecting the security of your vehicle as well as potentially protecting it from the degradations of wind and rain.
Connect your garage door to other systems
In some circumstances, you may want motion sensors to trigger your garage door to shut. Other households will want the garage doors to open automatically at a specific time, so that everyone’s vehicle is waiting for them to go to work or similar. Automation enables a connection with a wide range of other household systems and appliances, enabling you to program your garage automation with your other automated tasks. Linking your garage to your automation system can open up many access possibilities for you and your family.
Automated garage doors: a safer option
Manual garage doors operate using a fairly straight-forward, quite weak mechanism. If the mechanism fails, there is a significant chance that the door will start to list or drop; it may fall some distance or jam. All these problems are potential hazards. Automated garage doors are designed to fall into a safe position. In addition, breakdown is rare; with the right maintenance, automated garage doors will keep working well for decades.
