in Garage Door Installation by elkgrovegaragedoorco

News flash, Toto — this isn’t the 20th Century anymore. The modern age is a technological wonderland, promising greater convenience, security, and accessibility than people ever thought possible just a few years ago. Take advantage of modern technology. Here are 3 high tech improvements you should consider making to your own home.

Install a Smart Garage Door

Installing a smart garage door is one way you can make your garage more convenient, accessible, and secure. Smart technology allows you to control your garage door from anywhere using a mobile device. This way you can open and close your garage door wherever you are — the office, the golf course, on a sandy slice of paradise in Puerto Rico.

When we say “Install a smart garage door,” what we really mean is install a smart garage door opener. You don’t need to install a brand new door. Simply upgrading your garage door opener to a smart option will do the trick.

A smart garage door also gives you the option to allow package delivery inside your garage — simply instruct them to contact you when the package arrives. You give them access to your garage remotely, and your package is tucked safe inside. And if you should leave for work and forget to close your garage door, you’ll get a notice. You can close the door remotely, even while you’re sitting in traffic.

Install a Smart Thermostat

Did you know that heating and cooling are responsible for more than half of your household energy consumption, according to the US Department of Energy? A smart thermostat allows you to lower the temperature of your home while you are away and then raise it to a comfortable level remotely, so the house is warm and content when you get home. It’s a great way to optimize heat and lower your energy costs.

Install a Smart Doorbell

Smart doorbells are becoming super popular because of their security and convenience. When somebody comes to your door, you get a crisp video of who they are, even when you aren’t home. This alerts you to any security threats while you are away.

Getting the Best Garage Door Repair Doesn’t Have to Be Difficult

Every household needs to find that sweet balance between affordability, reliability, and practicality, when it comes to keeping the garage door operating smoothly. While much of your garage door repair and maintenance needs begins with you – most of us need professional advice at some point. And then there are times in our lives when we are busy with our work-family balance and we just need to rely on others to help. Because sustainable garage door maintenance and repair is about keeping our families safe, never hesitate to ask advice of professionals in your area.
