Best WiFi and Bluetooth Smart Garage Door Openers Image

June 4, 2018

The wireless garage door opener is far older than the Internet, but today’s connected technologies have added new capabilities for monitoring and sharing access to your garage from anywhere in the world.

With the help of mobile apps, not only will your smartphone replace your garage’s remote control, but you’ll also get reminders when you’ve left the door open, easily manage who can access your garage, get notifications to your cell phone whenever the door is used, set rules for automatic opening and closing, and even monitor the garage via a video stream.

The following Channel Guide will help you:

  • Determine which connectivity type you need? (WiFi, Bluetooth, or Cellular)
  • Get app reviews, and see if the lock can integrate with your smart home hub and other connected devices.
  • Filter based on monthly fees, or if the opener has electronic key pad and code capability.
