Smart Home Garage Door

LiftMaster created a line of products that are gaining popularity among consumers. The products are called Gateways, they are an accessory that can be added to work with the Security 2.0+ line of operators and can be modified to work with all existing LiftMaster models.

Gateways & WiFi Enabled Operators

So first of all what is the Gateway?  The Gateways are small modules that plug into your existing internet router. They communicate with the operator and any cellphone or internet enabled device and by downloading the free LiftMaster Application you are able to remotely control your garage door (and also select LiftMaster accessories) with your phone, tablet, or computer. The advantages of this system are that you will no longer need a physical remote or keypad to access your garage and because you have access from anywhere in the world, this system is ideal for those who travel. It gives you the flexibility to let in house keepers, nannies, children, and employees without the need to be there. It also gives a report of when the door was open and when it was closed so that you can monitor your home even if you’re in the office or across an ocean.

With the Security 2.0+ LiftMaster line the Gateway is plug-and-play ready, just plug it into your router, enter your information, and you are ready to operate. Some of the newest operators in this line are even WiFi enabled so the Gateway device isn’t even necessary just plug the operator in, enter the information online, and you are ready to go.

Older LiftMaster operators require a little more. You will need to purchase a new LM-888 wall button and also a Gateway. Once the wall button has been installed by a professional technician the Gateway can be installed and used just like the Security 2.0+ models.

With the right system – you can control more than just your garage door. Why not control the lights, gates or even more? Make your home a “smart home” using home automation modules. For more information about the right system that meets YOUR needs – please call us or contact online.
