Advanced Features in Modern Garage Door Openers
Does anyone remember when you had to open a garage door by hand? Invented in 1926 and popularized right here in Chicago after World War II, the electric garage door opener has been making the lives of homeowners easier ever since.
What was once opened by a keypad at the end of the driveway was followed by the fault ridden early radio transmitters, and has advanced since then to make the lives of homeowners easier each year. Now it’s 2014, and the technologies of garage door openers match the time. From WiFi-enabled smart garages to ephemeral opener signals, the garage of the future is here.
Today, we’d like to share some of the advanced features available in Blue Sky Builders-Preferred LiftMaster garage doors.
By tapping into the power of your Internet Gateway, you can monitor and control your home’s or garage door or lighting from your smartphone, tablet, or computer. With MyQ®:
- Confidently know what’s going on at home
- Monitor and control your Garage Door Opener and home lighting from anywhere (when paired with the Internet Gateway).
- Receive email or text alerts so you always know the status of your garage door and home lighting.
- Download the MyQ® mobile app for free. No annual activation fee required.
How about a signal that can never be hacked? With Security+ 2.0™, your garage door will never be sent the same code.
- Safeguard your household with Security+ 2.0™—with every click, a new code is sent to the Garage Door Opener, so the door opens only for you.
- Stay out of harm’s way with audio and visual warnings when the garage door is about to close.
- Don’t get stuck in the dark. The Motion Detector activates the Garage Door Opener’s lights as soon as you enter the garage.
- Remain safe with the Protector System. It projects a light beam across the garage door opening, preventing it from closing if anything interrupts it.
- Ensure your door cannot be forced open with a Power Lock Deadbolt.
That’s just two of the top features available on modern garage doors. We have come a long way since one garage door opener opened the entire neighborhood’s doors or when an overhead plane transmission would open an overhead door.
