The Best Garage Door Openers of 2019…So Far
The garage door opener industry is like almost every other industry in that it has been dramatically affected by the influx of new smart technologies. In previous blogs, we have discussed how electric garage door openers can now be connected to your smart devices, such as smartphones, Amazon Echo, Google Home, etc. to allow you to open and monitor your garage more efficiently. Smart technology keeps on evolving, and so do garage door openers. Here is a short list of some of the most advanced garage door openers available at this point in 2019:
- Chamberlain Group B550 Smartphone-Controlled Ultra-Quiet & Strong Belt Drive Garage Door Opener. The garage door works with the myQ App, which can be installed on your smart device, allowing you access to your garage door remotely. This opener allows Amazon Prime members to give Amazon delivery people the ability to enter your garage and deliver packages safely while you are away. Additionally, the B550 uses a steel-reinforced belt drive system which is both sturdy and silent. No longer will a noisy garage door disturb the quiet in your home.
- Chamberlain B510 Ultra-Quiet & Strong Belt Drive Garage Door Opener. This is a slightly cheaper alternative model to the B550 mentioned above. It includes all the structural security and quiet opening and closing of the garage door but does not include smart technology. If you are looking for a reliable solution without the need for remote access, this garage door opener is for you.
- The Genie Company Model 2128 Opener. This month, Genie Company announced that they were updating this model to be connectable to the Aladdin Connect system. This system allows homeowners to integrate their garage doors with both Alexa and Google Assistant devices. Homeowners can set schedules for when their garage door can be opened, and they can give friends and family members “virtual keys” through their smart devices. This opener uses a DC motor that is small and easy to lift, meaning it can often be installed in garages more quickly than other garage door openers.
