Top 4 Smart and Classic Garage Door Openers To Consider

What is the appeal of The Jetsons, the Back to the Future franchise, and Phil of the Future? While all these franchises provide lighthearted fun, the big draw is the imagined advancements of these franchises’ technology.  And in our world, we welcomed smart garage door openers.

Unfortunately, we don’t have robot maids, flying cars, or proper hoverboards, but we have become a technologically dependent society. Technological innovations abound, from the complex to the simple.

As we strive to technologically enhance every aspect of our homes, consider doing the same for your garage doors. The best garage door openers should do more than open your garage – they should provide you with utility and ease of mind. Here are our top picks.

It also has a soft open and close, which means it opens at a slower speed on the first and last foot. It also has an industrial-strength chain drive to give you the power necessary to open tall or heavy garage doors.

It also comes equipped with a ceiling light.

Installing a new garage door opener is not a job for beginners; working with the opener’s torsion spring can be dangerous.
