Gone are the days of a garage door opener that simply moves the door up and down. A new technological era has supported the development of smart garage door openers with sophisticated programming and control options.
What Is a Smart Garage Door Opener?
The term ‘smart garage door opener’ refers to a garage door system that offers a range of operational and monitoring functions that can be accessed remotely, via WiFi. The garage door can be controlled and monitored directly through a smartphone or Apple Watch.
Merlin and the myQ System
All of Merlin’s current range of automatic garage door openers are compatible with myQ technology. This technology allows you to monitor and control your garage door via the myQ App via your smartphone or Apple Watch.
One of the key benefits of being able to open and close your garage door remotely is that you can receive parcels and packages even when you are not at home.
myQ technology not only allows you to operate your garage door from anywhere, but it also allows you to program advanced settings that provide customised security for your home. Using your smartphone or Apple Watch as your garage door opener controller, you can program specific opening and closing schedules for your garage door. You can also set automatic timers so that your garage door automatically closes after a certain amount of time being open. This way, you never have to worry that you might have left the garage door open. But even if you don’t wish to set a timer, you can check whether your garage door is open from wherever you are, closing it if necessary.
