How To Automate a Garage Door Opener
First, find out what type of garage door opener your home has. Most homes have either manual or automatic garage door openers.
Manual: If your home has a manual garage door opener, you'll need to replace the old remote control with a new one. Find the original remote control in the utility room or basement and remove the battery.
Automatic: Most homes with automatic garage door openers have one of two types of remotes: an RF (radio frequency) or IR (infrared) transmitter/receiver. To use an automatic garage door opener, you'll need to install an RF or IR transmitter/receiver in your home. The transmitter/receiver sends a signal that activates the opener when it's within range. You can buy a transmitter/receiver or rent one from your local home improvement store
Best Smart Garage Door Openers
1. Install a home security system that includes a garage door sensor. This will activate your garage door opener when you enter or leave your home, allowing you to open the door without having to remember to do it yourself.
2. Use an app to control your garage door opener from anywhere in the world. This is great for keeping an eye on your home while you're out of town, or for shuttling kids back and forth between the car and the house.
3. Use a smart thermostat to control your garage door opener. This allows you to open the door when it's warm outside, conserving energy in the winter months.
4. Purchase a smart gate controller that can open and close your garage door based on proximity sensors in your yard or walls.
