If you've ever second-guessed having closed the garage door when leaving the house, you're not alone, and that uncertainty can be stressful. Thankfully, with today's technology there are a variety of products that help you make sure the garage door never gets forgotten again.
Your garage may contain miscellaneous and forgotten things cast aside, yet it can also house some of your most costly valuables, including cars, bicycles, lawn equipment, tools, and more.
If your garage is attached to your home, then it is another potential entry point to the rest of your property. Do you always lock the door from your home to garage when leaving to run errands?
Seeing whether your garage door is opened or closed on your phone is reassuring and controlling the garage door remotely could save you time and headache.
Tilt sensors detect movement, or tilt, resulting from your garage door being opened or closed.
These sensors are easy to install and work with most wireless security systems. The right system can let you confirm remotely that your property is protected.
Rules can be put into place using your tilt sensor to ensure that you, or your home security monitoring company, receive alerts based on the status of your garage door. For example, a rule can be triggered to alert you when the garage door is opened while your location is outside of a set radius.
If you discover the garage door is open from a remote location, fix the error by remotely closing the door. Garage door controllers can link to your home’s Wi-Fi network and be programmed to respond to your command via a mobile app.
In addition to closing a garage door left open, there are modern conveniences that work with such systems. Package delivery can often be paired with garage door controllers, so next time you order from Amazon, you can easily set up your account allowing Amazon to drop off your package in your garage.
Of course, your garage can be a haven for new purchases, but consider the cost of replacing your collection of tools or seasonal decorations. Too often people forget the value accrued in your garage.
Both tilt sensors and garage door controllers have a lot to offer, and these are often bundled together for that reason. These features can be enhanced with professional monitoring services and work with a variety of systems.
