Garage doors that can open on command without you ever having to leave your car is probably one of the most mainstream forms of home automation. Chances are you either already have an automatic garage door opener in your home, but only the most recent models have come equipped with home automation integration built-in.
That’s where these products come in. They can be used to turn your current “dumb” garage door opener into a connected smart opener. Now some of these products will only work with a specific brand or model of garage door opener and others are more universal. So make sure that the one you choose will work with the model of opener that you have.
If you don’t already have a garage door opener then you are better off buying one that has the home automation functionality built right in. If you want to keep what you have then check out these conversion systems. I’ve put the one I think is noteworthy at the top.
