Smarter Garage Doors


Should you be a garage owner in Bradford, Bradford Garage Doors are sure that at some point you have had doubts about whether it is locked properly, having been side-tracked doing another activity.

Traditionally you had two different choices, either go back and check it, which could make you late or just take the chance that you had closed it and wait to see later. However now there is a new smarter option which could give you an answer right now.

The chamberlain group who have been making garage door openers since the mid 1950’s set about making a product which offered ultimate peace of mind. As a result, they created an app which could check to see if it was unlocked and if it was, a simple touch of the button would close it remotely.

Apparently this app can be used form the other side of the world so even if you have that fear while you are on holiday, now you can find out. You can also set it to send you notifications should your door actually be unlocked and this can be sent at a timescale you want (5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes).

One thing however that is being questioned about this product is the safety aspect, as if your door can be closed via and app, can it also be opened via an app. If you thus lose your phone can someone gain access into your garage by a simple press of a button? Also can you turn this feature off should you lose the phone? Are you also susceptible to bug attack to apps and changes with software.

This is exciting technology and has been developed lots on the last few years by many different providers. We have already mentioned how other apps allow you to open and close the door, but not to this level.

At Bradford Garage Doors we always like to keep on top of what is going on in the industry that could make the use of garage doors easier. We will keep an eye on these changes closely in the coming months.
