New Trends in Overhead Garage Doors

In the past few years, there has been a significant increase in new technology available for overhead garage doors. This new technology is improving energy efficiency, security, and convenience.

The good news is that it’s becoming standard for overhead garage doors to offer excellent insulation. In the past, this was price prohibitive, but technology has changed this and made energy efficiency a more affordable goal to attain.  

If it feels like everything in your house, even your toilet, has an app for your smartphone these days, it’s because they do. Your overhead garage door is no different; opening and closing your garage door is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all the cool features smart overhead garage doors offer these days.

Let’s talk about security,  the most prominent security issue with a remote access overhead garage door has always been the easily hacked garage door clicker. Not anymore, well sort of, it used to be any “joe schmoe” could buy a cheap piece of tech to hack your garage door clicker. I said sort of because the hack can still occur it would just have to be done by such an advanced piece of tech chances are high there is nothing in your garage and house combined worth what this thing costs. Today’s overhead garage doors employe ever-changing codes that are continuously changing, the constant change does not affect you; it occurs between your device and the smart garage.

Proximity is no longer a constraint on today’s smart overhead garage doors. Gone are the days when you would have to give someone a key or heaven forbid your garage door code if you wanted to provide them with access. No matter where in the world you are, as long as you have internet access, you can open and close your garage door with the tap of your screen.

Your overhead garage door has always been the first thing people see from the curb; people are now using their garage doors as a canvas.
