5 Ways A Smart Garage Door Opener Can Take the Stress Out of Travel

July 29, 2021

“You shut the garage door…right?” With so much to remember on the way out the door, it’s not uncommon to drive away wondering. Thankfully you never have to wonder again if you have a LiftMaster Secure View garage door opener with a built-in camera. Through the myQ® app, you can easily see if the garage was left open and then close it without having to go back home. With smart home technology like a LiftMaster garage door opener powered by myQ, vacationers can ensure that their garage door is closed and their home secure from anywhere in the world so they can have the stress-free vacation they deserve. If you’re one of the many looking to take a vacation this summer, here are five reasons you should consider installing a LiftMaster Secure View garage door opener powered by myQ before you hit the road:

  1. Stop stressing you left the garage door open and see for yourself. No matter how prepared you are for your trip, it’s inevitable to worry about whether you left the garage door open. Travelers with a garage door opener with built-in camera like the LiftMaster Secure View garage door opener can stop imagining what is going on in the garage and see for themselves. The Secure View’s built-in camera adds live-streaming video, recorded events, and 2-way communication so you can see and hear what’s happening using the myQ app, and open or close the door from your smartphone even if you are on vacation halfway around the world.
  • Easily share access: Some homeowners may want to have a neighbor or family member check in on their home while they are gone or find that they need to give access to a repair person or housekeeper. Travelers can easily share and manage home access with myQ. Share full access with members of your household or limited access with a repair person. You can even create user profiles, so you always know who is coming and going. With the added benefit of a built-in camera, you can see who is coming and going and make sure the garage is secure after guests have left.
  • Set alerts for peace of mind. Knowing the garage, the home’s largest access point, is secure allows vacationers to enjoy their break worry-free. The myQ app lets you set alerts to know that someone is checking in on your home regularly and the garage isn’t left open by mistake.
  • Get Access That Goes Beyond the Garage. Homeowners can easily add other myQ devices like smartlocks and  Remote Light Control (825LM). Through the myQ app, vacationers can ensure all the home’s main entry points are secure and schedule lights to turn on and off, giving the appearance someone is home even when they are relaxing by a pool hundreds of miles away.
  • Make Homecoming Less Stressful with In-Garage Grocery Delivery. Adjusting to real life after a vacation is hard enough without the added stress of coming home to an empty fridge. Avoid an unnecessary trip to the store when you get home by having your packages and groceries waiting for you in the garage. myQ technology gives eligible Amazon Prime members the option for In-Garage Grocery Delivery through Amazon Key. You can have all of your Amazon packages and groceries delivered to your garage, so they are secure and waiting for you when you return. You can even watch the delivery take place in real-time through the myQ app.
