Smart Home Technology in the Garage

OHD Anywhere® Now Google Home and Amazon Alexa Compatible

 

 New technological advancements are always popular when they are released, and the smart home automation movement has become a staple in many homes. This means that a smart speaker is a necessity when it comes to a smart home! It is able to control lighting, thermostats, doorbell cameras, alarms and now garage doors. The Overhead Door Brand continues to offer the most up to date products and services to our customers. We are proud to announce that the OHD Anywhere® app is now compatible with Smart Home devices to create an up to date user-friendly experience.

          

 The garage door is the largest and most used entry point to the home. Monitoring who is going in and out of your garage or having the ability to use your smart device to operate the garage door gives you a peace-of-mind and control.

OHD Anywhere and its applications

With OHD Anywhere®, not only can you check whether your garage door is open or closed, but you can also:

1)      Instantly know that someone is operating your garage door, and whether that person is an authorized user or not

2)      Be notified when someone is manually operating your door so you can take necessary steps to find out who and why

3)      Open the door for anyone such as delivery or repair persons, relatives, or friends when they call or text you upon their arrival, so you don't have to provide a temporary access password

4)      Have a history for each opener of when the door was used including dates & times

 

This new integration makes operating your garage door seamless in a world that functions around smart devices. You can simply ask "Google" or "Alexa" questions such as "is my garage door open?" or "is my garage door closed?", and you can also rename your doors individually. With voice control capabilities and your smartphone, you can close your garage door no matter where you are. Find the list of commands you can use anywhere, here.

PRO TIP: You will even have the option to enable/disable your pin in the event of an emergency.
