Raise your garage door while elevating your ability to control it with one of these top garage door openers.
It used to be that a garage door opener’s controls were pretty basic. It raised or lowered the door with the push of a button from a remote or wall-mounted control. However, like many modern home appliances, devices, and gizmos, today’s garage door openers have smart technology that allows the homeowner to control them via a smartphone app. These powerful apps expand what a garage door opener can do, allowing the owner to monitor the door’s status, set schedules to automatically open and close the door, and even create permissions to allow temporary access for a friend, family member, or delivery person.
With so many features to consider, shopping for a new garage door opener can be a little overwhelming. This guide will explore the smart functions today’s garage door openers offer as well as vital nuts and bolts such as horsepower and type while reviewing some of the best garage door openers on the market.
