The homeowner in Moline, IL, contacted Titan Garage Doors Quad Cities for a garage door opener repair job. They were unhappy with the inconsistent behavior of the opener's wall control and wanted to replace it. We suggested they purchase this LiftMaster Wi-Fi control panel. This wall console could effortlessly set up MyQ®-enabled accessories and reliably operate their garage door opener. In addition, they could set a door-closing timer with this wall button, so they would never have to worry about forgetting to close their garage door. The client liked the idea and went for it instead of the standard wall controller. Following installation, they were thrilled with the console features and thanked us for the suggestion before we departed.
For anyone who frequently worries about accidentally leaving their garage door open, a smart garage door opener controller can offer genuine peace of mind. This modest luxury is worth the investment for its security and convenience.
Pricey smart home gadgets are all the rage, but you do not have to spend big bucks to get in on the action. For example, you can get a device to upgrade your old garage door opener for as little as $30. With a smart controller, you can manage your door from anywhere through an app on your smartphone, tablet, or computer. Plus, there is no need to replace any other devices you may use and like, such as visor clips, push buttons, and keypads.
A smart garage-door opener controller is a great way to improve security and access at your home, vacation home, or rental property. Knowing that your property is secure will give you peace of mind. This device uses geolocation features to remotely open and close your garage door and automatically close the door.
No more worrying about whether you left the garage door open. With a smart controller, you can check and close it from anywhere. Some models will even close the door automatically for you, with a safety beep to warn anyone standing underneath first.
Controller installation is usually straightforward and does not require extra hardware. You can buy a controller, plug it in, and use it to control your garage door. Voice control (via interaction with a smart-home platform like Alexa, Google Assistant, or Apple HomeKit) is a helpful smart feature even without a fully featured smart home. Without taking out your phone and pressing buttons, you can instantly check if your door is open and tell it to close. A smart garage-door opener controller can be useful even without investment in home automation—it is a straightforward, entry-level tool that can ease your life.
Before you purchase a smart garage-door opener controller, confirm that it is compatible with your garage door opener. Unfortunately, not all smart controllers are compatible with all openers, and surprisingly, the newer your opener is, the less likely it is to work with most retrofit smart controllers.
MyQ® is a controller made by Chamberlain Group. They own a large part of the garage door opener market in the US with their three brands: Chamberlain, LiftMaster, and Craftsman. Unfortunately, newer openers (2011 and after) are usually incompatible with third-party smart controllers without an adapter. You can tell whether your opener is one of these by checking for a yellow and round "Learn" button on the controller or for MyQ® or Security+ 2.0 printed anywhere.
