With all the different technological innovations happening seemingly overnight these days, it can be difficult to distinguish the truly life-improving products from the frivolous, noisy fads that fade away as quickly as they appear. But one new product is making a big impression, and it has to do with homeowners and garage doors in Billings, MT and beyond.
We’re happy to introduce MyQ, a garage door opener that comes with a corresponding smartphone and tablet app, which allows users to control their home lighting and garage doors from far away. Here is a closer look at how it works, how it can benefit you and how to have it easily installed.
How it works
MyQ is really fairly simple: it works the same way as an ordinary remote-controlled garage door opener. But because the opener is an app on your smartphone or tablet, you are able to open, close, check on and control lighting in your garage from wherever you are.
Say you have a work emergency and need to travel across the state at a moment’s notice, but forgot that your college student daughter is coming by to pick up some belongings and will need to access the garage. Using MyQ, you can open the garage door for her while you’re out of town, rather than her needing to reschedule with you.
This is just one example of how MyQ is more convenient that your average garage door opener, and how it can save you time, effort and even money. And if you are worried that the wrong people would have access to your garage should your phone get stolen, don’t worry—the app comes with security features to ensure only you can access it.
The MyQ app is available on both the iTunes App and Google Play stores, and the corresponding physical opener can be bought through your local source for garage doors in Billings, MT.
Why you need it
Beyond mere convenience, MyQ also offers peace of mind that is difficult to come by, even with all our modern technical advances.
No longer will you be unable to fully enjoy your vacation because of nagging worries that your empty home has been broken into. Never again will you have to stress out about losing or needing to replace the battery in your garage door opener remote. And with the option to also control your home’s lighting, you can give the appearance that someone is home and protecting your house, even if that is not the case.
You might expect that such a helpful and advanced device would be too expensive for the average homeowner. In fact, the MyQ opener starts at about $130, and the cost of the app is negligible. At prices that low, peace of mind is one thing everyone can afford.
