As Vivint continues to lead the industry with innovative smart home technology and home security, it should be of little surprise to find we also offer intelligently designed garage door controllers that allow you to monitor and secure your home's garage from anywhere.
How innovation creates a better garage door control for your home
Interestingly enough, electric garage door openers were invented in 1926 by C.G. Johnson. However, it is only with the continuing evolution of smart home technology that it can be monitored, and opened or closed from anywhere. These invaluable innovations offer any number of benefits for homeowners everywhere including garage door security.
Improved home security
While garages make great additional storage spaces for your home, not only for a car but additional items as well, they are also well-known entry points for burglars. This is why garage door controllers are such an important aspect of your home security system. Although, for additional door security it is recommended that you install an additional lock on the door that leads from the garage to your home. Securing your garage door windows is another recommended home security tip.
Monitor your garage from anywhere
When used with a Garage Door Tilt Sensor, it's easy to access your door's status from the Vivint Smart Home app or the Vivint SkyControl™ Panel. This eliminates the worry that you may have accidentally left it open, because you can check it anytime, from anywhere. Additionally, Vivint automatically sends notifications alerting you to your door's status.
Door security and control from anywhere
Whether you are at home, at work, on vacation or outside in your driveway, the Garage Door Controller is a garage door opener that allows you to automatically open or close your garage via the app. This means you'll never again have to worry about driving all the way home because you forgot to shut the door.
This level of control is easy to use and an improvement over a traditional garage door opener where your car has to be in proximity to the garage in order to get it to open. Now you can be sure your garage is closed and house locked from anywhere.
Your opener provides additional safety
Garage doors have been known to pose safety risks in their own right. With the Garage Door Controller, any time you open or close the door through the app or control panel, the system will automatically alert those in the vicinity that it is about to begin moving. It does this with a garage door alarm that makes an audible beeping alert accompanied by a flashing light. The garage door alarm gives others in the area plenty of time to be sure to move out of the way.
Smart home convenience
With the advancements being made in smart home technology and automatic controllers, gone are the days when — rain or shine — you had to exit your car, unlock and open the garage with a code, return to the vehicle, drive in, then close the door from the inside.
Now, you don't have to break a sweat to easily save energy, improve door security and monitor your home's garage door status with the push of a few buttons via the app or control panel. As an added convenience, you can personalize your experience by customizing the notifications you receive.
Add cameras for better control
By integrating your garage door with a smart home system, you can enjoy added garage door security. Installing outdoor cameras near your garage can give you a window to what's happening in and around your garage with a live video feed. It's also easy to review the video footage later at your convenience.
