Best Smart Alexa/Google Home Garage Door Openers

Spread the love

Whoever said that time brings progress couldn`t have been more right. The year 1886 brought with itself the invention of the modern automobile. Here we are, more than 130 years later, living what our ancestors have surely never even dreamed of:  the ability to open your garage door using a smartphone.

Unlike the usual garage door opener which requires- you guessed it- pressing a button physically, a smart garage door opener such as the Alexa/Google ones allows you to control your garage door remotely and monitor it using your smartphone. By doing this, it basically acts as a security guard for the garage- nobody goes in or out of the garage without you getting a notification about it. Besides the high level of security it provides, the convenience of being able to open the door from anywhere (say, if a friend comes over when you are not at home) and the electricity amount reduction makes it a very cool gadget for the hectic times that we live in.

Convinced to install one yourself? Here is a comparison of some of the best-known systems on the market to help you decide over a model.
