If you are curious to learn more about the latest technology in the field of automatic garage doors, read on. The doors and especially their electric operators have come a long way since the 1950’s when automation became affordable for the average homeowner. Now you can have greater control over your door and opener regardless of your location. This will give you not only greater convenience, but a higher level of safety and security. Find out what new technology has to offer and how to take advantage of it. It’s time to step into the future.
You look at garage doors and the only thing you see is an old style mechanism still complex and conventional as many decades back. At first glance, this is how it looks! Partially, this is not entirely false. When we first read about Amarr manufacturing track-less and spring-less garage doors, we wondered how these doors move. Still, they move! They are folded beautifully and noiselessly and look at their very best! Progress is made even in the most conventional and necessary garage door parts. The truth is that progress has been made some decades back with the invention of electric operators and today with talk about high tech systems.
New technology in your hands
They might not look high tech but they are! When we have reached a point where we talk about using our tablet in London to open our overhead door in Los Angeles, that's high technology thanks to the Liftmaster MyQ! If that's not advanced technology, what is? The first steps towards more modern door openers were made in an attempt to enhance people's safety. One thing led to the other and today electric openers are not just safe but highly sophisticated. People might still use remote controls in order to gain access but there is always the choice of keypad wireless systems, which can be installed at the garage entrance and work with codes.
The technology of openers made a major step when the universal remotes were put aside for emergency needs and manufacturers along with people invested in rolling code clickers. No more, I press my remote your door opens! No more fear that someone might interfere with my frequency and gain access to my home. Did you see the latest Genie intellicode remote? Closed confirm is called and for a good reason, too. Did you drive away and forgot to check whether the door closed down? Don't worry! Your remote will let you know.
