Remote controlling locks and doors no longer has to be a thing of the past thanks to all the smart home products out there. Just like with a smart lock, this smart garage door opener from MyQ lets you open the garage door with just a few taps using your smartphone and the companion application for the device. Simple, and quick, and of course you can use it to close the door too.
In addition to remotely opening and closing the door you can set the opener up to send you alert notifications to your connected smartphone whenever the door is opened or closed, so if you're not the one opening it you'll know when there's activity, which is great for security purposes as this makes it easy to keep tabs on your home. What's more is that these are real-time alerts so you'll know fast.
If you have other smart devices in the home, like smart speakers powered by Google Assistant, you can use those to control the MyQ as well, and it even supports Amazon Key so you can have packages delivered into the garage when you're not there. Normally this device goes for $50, but you can grab it right now for just $30 as part of the Prime Day deals.
