Innovative Garage Door Technology04/22/2016 Back To Blog
One would think that there isn’t all that much to talk about when it comes to the exciting innovations of garage door parts, but that would be as far from the truth as it could be. These unassuming systems have been a part of our lives for so long that it can sometimes be difficult to think of them as anything other than a commonplace appliance. But we here at Garage Door Repair San Francisco would like to share with you, some of the more interesting and exciting fields of interest in the garage door industry. One of the best ways to do that, is to say a little something about the more technologically impressive developments that you can make a part of your system. Call them toys, gadgets or life changing technologies… whatever your way of thinking about these devices, they are still technological marvels that we would all love to see in our own homes.
No two door openers need to be exactly the same, not when there are so many items that can be added to them, or for their better function. Take wireless operational panels for instance, portable devices that can be moved around the home and used to operate your door, monitor its health and also survey its surroundings to tell you if someone is waiting outside or trying to get in, whether you are in the garage, the kitchen or the bathroom, these devices can accompany you to make sure you don’t miss a beat.
Let’s talk about opener receivers. These are the devices that communicate between controllers and your opener so that the one can open and close the other, but we live in a time where we can honestly do away with remotes altogether. Modern receivers allow you to pair your opener with your smart-phone or tablet, to allow it to act as a remote controller, meaning you don’t need tons of loose clickers lying around your house and car.
Of course if you’re not quite ready to do away with garage door remotes, you can opt for universal ones that operate just about everything in your home using one simple to use device. Pair it up with your garage, gate, TV, lights, curtains, computer or stereo system, anything that is vaguely smart and operates with a controller.
All openers should come with security features like a reverse function and safety sensors. But what about a laser guided parking system to ensure you don’t back into your door? There are also amazing solutions for garage surveillance that use HD cameras and audio to give you a full picture of your system’s safety.
So if you’ve grown bored with your standard opener, spice things up a little by fitting some of these neat devices, or ones just like them, to your garage doors at home.
