Make back to school a breeze with Merlin!

As the summer holidays come to an end, the frenzy of the back-to-school rush ramps up. The whirlwind of last-minute school supply shopping, meal prepping, and uniform ironing can be a bit overwhelming.  

In the midst of the chaos, finding ways to simplify daily tasks is crucial, which is why we have put together some handy tips on how Merlin can make this time of year just that little bit easier! 

Contactless delivery  

Turning to online shopping for buying school essentials can be a lifesaver – but the stress of coordinating deliveries and being home to receive them can add another layer of complexity. 

With Merlin’s myQ App, you can control your garage door and gate from anywhere by using your smartphone. Just let the delivery driver know to text you when they are outside and you can open the front gate and the garage door, allowing safe and convenient delivery of the kid’s school supplies – saving you a pesky trip to the post office! 

After school access 

Whether it’s needing to provide access for the kids while you’re still at work or for those moments when keys are lost or forgotten, having Merlin’s Wireless Security Keypad installed is a great way to avoid having to wait for Mum or Dad to arrive home.  

While the Wireless Security Keypad is a convenient solution to ensure secure access, it is essential that only mature children who understand the importance of garage door safety are given the responsibility of opening the door.  

Check your garage door opener 

There’s no doubt that the garage door has gotten a workout this summer, with beach days, play dates and shuttling the kids off at their school holiday activities. Back to school time is a good time to check that your garage door is in working order. 

The morning rush to get the kids up and ready for school can turn chaotic if your garage door decides to act up. If you have noticed strange noises, halting, or grinding, it might mean that your garage door needs some attention.  

To avoid the last-minute hassle, contact your local Merlin dealer to organise a service to ensure your garage door is in top-notch condition, helping you and the kids get out on time! 


Embrace the back-to-school season with confidence and ease by incorporating Merlin’s smart solutions to your routine! From simplifying shopping and ensuring a smoothly functioning garage door to providing after-school access, Merlin is here to help you make back-to-school a breeze!
