19 Sep Mobile Garage Door Openers Increase Safety and Convenience
We all agree, early mornings are the worst. Over sleeping or being tired can make you feel rushed and stressed in your morning routine. In your haste, it’s often easy to forget something when leaving the house. That can be something as small as your coffee, or as important as closing your garage. Forgetting to close your garage not only causes a security threat, but leaves you feeling unsettled throughout the day which can really disrupt your peace of mind. The MyQ Smart Garage control app can change all this by enabling you to use your smartphone to open or close the garage door. With a garage remote control app, you’ll never have to worry about leaving your garage open again.

This gives you the ability to use your iphone, or android to open the garage door.The MyQ app is available for free download from the App Store and Google Play.
