What Customers are Saying about Garage Door Control

Mar 24, 2022|

It’s happened to everyone: you leave your home in a rush and are halfway down the street before you wonder, “Did I leave my garage door open?”

Not only does your garage house many valuable items, but it’s also an entry point into your home—even more reason why you’d want to make sure it’s secure.

With Garage Door Control from Vivint, you never have to wonder if you left your garage door open again. And if you did, you can easily close it from your phone wherever you are. Our customers love it, and they’re not shy about sharing their thoughts. Read on to learn more about Garage Door Control and what our customers are saying about it.

What is Garage Door Control?

Garage Door Control is a smart garage door controller that allows you to monitor, open, and close your garage door right from your smartphone. Using the same app you use to control your smart home, you can:

  • Know when you leave your garage door open. If you leave your garage door open, you’ll receive a notification on your smartphone. You’ll also get notified whenever the garage door opens, so you’ll know whenever anyone is coming or going.
  • Open and close the door wherever you are. With Garage Door Control, your smartphone becomes a garage remote as well. Whether you need to close your garage door or want to open it, you can do it right from your smartphone, no matter where you are.

When part of your Vivint Smart Home, Garage Door Control also integrates with different components of your smart home:

  • Hands-free voice control: Garage Door Control also integrates with your smart speaker for hands-free control of your garage door. So when you walk into the house with an armful of groceries (or kids!), you can just ask Alexa or Google to close the garage door.

Garage Door Control is an important part of your overall outdoor security system. You can check your outdoor security cameras to see what’s happening around your garage door, or you can open your garage door with your phone for deliveries to help protect your packages.

Garage Door Control reviews

If you’re looking for the best smart garage door opener, it always helps to read reviews. Take a look at a few reasons why our customers love their Garage Door Control:

Peace of mind

Leaving a garage door open means access to your home—a scary thought when you’re away for even a few minutes. Garage Door Control provides peace of mind by letting you close your garage door no matter where you are, helping ensure your home is always secure.

Being able to control the garage door using the app certainly gives me peace of mind knowing the door is closed particularly while I'm away. There were times I've driven away thinking that the door was closed only to return a few hours later finding it wide open. Needless to say those "oops" are a thing of the past!


We'll never leave the garage door open overnight again! No need to worry about batteries for the garage clicker! Easier to use with the app!


The garage door alarm helps to monitor my granddaughter - she tends to take off at times and she knows how to open the garage door. It is one more exit alarmed to help keep everyone safe!


Awesome feature, no more driving back home to make sure garage door is closed


I absolutely love the sense of security Vivint has given me.



One thing we hear over and over is how much our customers love being able to close their garage door with their phones. It provides the convenience and flexibility that traditional garage door openers don’t have—no more turning around to close the garage door or asking a neighbor to close it for you after you’ve left.

WOW! That's how I would describe the Garage Door controller - I can either open/close my garage from my phone or my panel. The crazy part??? I was in Phoenix, AZ visiting my daughter (I live in St. Louis, MO). My daughter was going by the house and left her key - I was able to open my garage door from Phoenix, AZ using my cell phone! Simply AMAZING!!


I love being able to monitor, open, and close the garage door remotely.


It's nice to be able to shut the garage door when you forget a mile away from your house


Lets us know if we left the garage door open more than 10 minutes. Also can open or close from our smart phones in case we have to let one of the kids in.


Love the flexibility of closing and opening the doors from my phone.


Working great I use it in my 3rd car because we only have 2 remotes for the garage door. Didn't have to buy another remote.


The garage door controller allows to use our cell phone to open and close door. It even warns you with a beeping sound to inform you that the door is getting ready to move.


Our garage door opener doesn't work most of the time, so it's great to be able to use my phone to open & close it!



Knowing when your garage door is open is another feature of a smart garage door opener our customers love.

I love being alerted when the garage door is open because kids tend to leave it up even at night. Now I can check my app and close it from my bed!


The sensor tells us if someone has left the garage door open for more than 15 minutes. This is a great feature if we all leave the home and cant remember if we closed it


Outstanding product to let you know you can close your garage door from home if you forget.


Very happy with this. It has helped me several times already with the alerts that it has been left open.
