How Smart Is A Garage Door Opener?
Just like a remote control, the garage door opener makes our lives easier. It doesn’t matter if you’re from Edmond, El Reno, Mustang, Okc, Oklahoma City, Piedmont, Yukon or somewhere else; we all love remote controls equally.
Has your remote control battery died so far? Bad, unpleasant experience, isn’t it? You have to walk to the TV and manually switch between channels. Plus, all the additional buttons on the remote control… how can a TV’s buttons ever replace those?
Basically a garage door opener is a device which opens and closes garage doors; the device is actioned either manually, by a switch on the wall, or from afar, with the help of a remote control. So the entire mechanism is made up of a remote control, a garage door opener and a switch on the wall.
Traditionally, the garage door opener contains a small electric motor which is included in a power unit. This power unit is attached to the garage’s ceiling and it looks very much like a box with a long handle attached to the garage door.
The remote controls used for garage doors were initially simple gadgets: a receiver and a transmitter controlled the box on the ceiling.
As time passed by, these remote controls were improved – just like those on a TV. This is how nowadays the small remote controls have additional features, such as:
– They can automatically turn on the lights in the garage when the garage door opens.
– You can schedule a turn off time for the lights
– You can lockout your door – a feature useful when you’re away from home, on holiday
– Accessories are varied now, offering you the possibility to choose from key chain remotes, deadbolts, or wireless keypads
