We know how important it is for you and your family to feel safe and secure at home. Luckily, connected home technology can help make this possible. In fact, a recent study by iControl Networks found that 90 percent of homeowners view personal and family security as one of the most important reasons for installing a connected home system.
Connected home technology offers a variety of benefits, especially when installed in a space you and your family use almost every day, such as the garage. If you’re looking to install connected home devices, specifically in the garage, LiftMaster – the number one brand of professionally installed residential garage door openers – recommends you keep these tips in mind:
Safely and Conveniently Access your Home
If your family is anything like mine, then you’re probably using the garage almost every day. In fact, seventy percent of homeowners use the garage as the main point of entry to and from the home. So how can you upgrade your current system? LiftMaster’s MyQ technology makes it easy to open, close and control a garage door opener anytime, from anywhere. Plus, you have the convenience of controlling home, garden or garage lighting systems all from the MyQ app, meaning you no longer have to worry about stepping into an unlit house.
Look for Compatibility
When transitioning to a connected home system, technology compatibility issues can be a headache, so be sure to choose a connected home device that works with both Apple and Android. This will give you greater flexibility if you choose to integrate more devices in and around your home in the future.
Includes Signaling Capabilities
The garage door is often the heaviest moving object in the home, making it even more important that it operates safely. Connected devices with signaling capabilities – either visual or audio warnings – help ensure those nearby are aware when a garage door is closing or opening. Safety first!
Gives you Peace of Mind
The last time I went on vacation, we had already driven three hours away before I started worrying I might have left the garage door open. I called my neighbor and luckily she checked on the door for me – but what if I could’ve just received an alert on my phone? MyQ technology sends text alerts on the status of your garage door and allows you to close it remotely for added security, and peace of mind.
With these helpful tips, your family can take the first steps toward a safe and secure connected home.
