How to Make Your Garage Smart

Smart technologies have advanced capabilities that make people’s lives easier, explaining their growing popularity in homes and workplaces everywhere. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could use these next-level solutions in your garage, too? The good news is, you can!

With this guide, we’ll discuss how to improve your garage with smart products and technologies.

1. Get a Smart Garage Door Opener

Your garage door opener is your garage’s most important component and you can easily enhance it with smart technologies. Many modern garage door openers are Wi-Fi-enabled, meaning you can connect them to your smartphone or another Internet-enabled device. Using a convenient app, you can open and close your garage door remotely, track garage door activity and much more.

2. Install a Smart Garage Parking Assistant

Have you ever pulled a little too far into your garage and run into your belongings — or worse, the wall? Luckily, you never have to experience the consequences of a bad parking job again with smart parking assistant technologies for your garage. These systems feature mountable sensors that detect your car’s position and indicate where to park, minimizing the risk of pulling too far into your garage.

3. Use a Smart Thermostat

Garages are prone to extreme temperature fluctuations throughout the year, making the space feel sweltering hot or freezing cold. You can maintain the perfect temperatures in your garage year-round with a smart thermostat. When paired with a compatible heating or air conditioning system, these devices automatically adjust indoor temperatures to keep your garage cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

4. Automate Your Garage Door Lighting

These solutions allow users to control lighting systems from their smartphones or create an automated lighting schedule.

Smart lighting systems are an excellent addition to any garage, enabling you to adjust your garage lighting according to your needs. These solutions allow users to control lighting systems from their smartphones or create an automated lighting schedule. Smart lighting technologies can also turn your lights on and off when your garage door opens and closes or when the sensors detect motion within the garage.

However your smart system works, you can expect adequate garage lighting exactly when you need it.

5. Implement a Keyless Entry System

Opening and closing your garage door with a remote control or key can be a hassle, especially when you’re in a hurry. You might accidentally leave these devices behind, preventing you from regaining entry into your garage.

With keyless garage entry systems, you don’t need to carry a physical device to get in and out of your garage. Instead, all you have to do is enter your unique PIN code on the number pad and the door will open. Some wireless entry systems also feature backlit numbers, so you can easily enter your combination at any time.
