A homeowner in Lincoln, NE, contacted us for a garage door opener installation service. They had a Wi-Fi garage door opener from another brand a few years ago but were not impressed with how it was. It was a bit noisy, and after-sales service support was not helpful. So we recommended this Liftmaster chain drive Wi-Fi garage door opener, which allowed for smartphone control with the myQ® app. It was also fairly quiet for a chain drive, which the client wanted as they had an attached garage. The new opener did wonders in reducing noise besides its conveniences and ease of use! Another satisfied client served by Titan Garage Doors NE!

Nowadays, everybody does everything online — from shopping and paying bills to watching movies and listening to music. And now you can also control your garage door opener through the Internet. Companies like LiftMaster, Chamberlain, Genie, and Craftsman have developed Wi-Fi-enabled garage door openers that let you open your garage from anywhere in the world using an app on your smartphone.

Wi-Fi-enabled garage door openers are a great option for everyone. They offer a couple of features and are much more affordable than ever. At Titan Garage Doors NE, many of our clients have opted to install Wi-Fi-enabled smart garage door openers in their homes. Of course, these new devices have pros and cons, but they provide significant benefits over their traditional counterparts.

The market offers two types of garage door openers: those that are compatible with your existing opener and those that come as part of a complete system. Of course, you need other things for your smart garage door opener system to work perfectly. A great opener is a must, as well as a reliable Wi-Fi connection. These components will give you the best possible experience with your smart garage door opener. Unfortunately, you may not get the same features with the opener system and add-on accessories. 

Smart garage door opener add-on accessories vs. smart garage door opener systems

Add-on accessories are made to work with the garage door opener you already have. You can connect them to your current system to add some new functionality. On the other hand, smart garage door opener systems are created as a single, integrated unit. A smart garage door opener system uses a partner app enabling you to operate and access your garage door remotely, similar to an add-on accessory kit. It is crucial to check your options because functions and features vary from one product package to another. That will help you make sure your smart opener suits the purpose you have in mind.

Can I convert my existing garage door into a smart one?

Yes, you can make an existing door smart. You can add a wall control panel or push button to open or close the garage door to most older model garage door openers. You can use these push-button connectors to connect smart garage door openers. The smart garage door opener receives a signal from the smartphone when you want to close or open the garage door through the smartphone app, and the smart garage door opener responds by acting as a push button and opening or closing the garage door.

Nothing is more frustrating than being unable to park in your driveway because your garage door opener is not working. Good thing this is a problem that we can easily fix.
