American Garage Door - Blog


It's not just phones that are getting smarter these days. Homes are too. With a click of a button (or even the sound of your voice) you can control your heat, watch your video surveillance feed, lock your doors, and turn on the lights, no matter where in the world you are!

This increased intelligence within your home has also found its way to your garage, and American Garage Door of New Orleans is excited to introduce you to it.

Never worry about your garage door being left open with LiftMaster's MyQ

No matter how fancy a model we get, or what color we paint it, in the end it's important to remember one thing about your garage: it's an access point into your home.

That's both good and scary. The conveniences of a garage are plentiful. Heck, you don't even need to park your car in the garage to find a ton of use for that space. But with conveniences comes vulnerabilities, and that's exactly what your garage door presents.

That's why we're so excited to offer our clients throughout Greater New Orleans the latest in mobile security technology.

So, how does MyQ work?

Do you have a smartphone? Good. Do you know how to add apps to that smartphone? Excellent! Then you've overcome the biggest hurdles facing you as you relish in the advantages of MyQ by LiftMaster. Once you sign up for the service, all you have to do is download the app and set up your account. Once your garage is connected to the app, just look at what you can do with the MyQ Smartphone Control:

  • Monitor the status of your door (stop worrying about whether you left the door open; stop pestering your kids about making sure they close the door behind them!)
  • Receive garage door activity alerts - This is one of the most raved about features about this service. Knowing if your garage door is being tampered with - or is malfunctioning - is priceless! Whether you're in bed late at night, or away on vacation, you'll know exactly what's going on with your home's biggest access point.
  • Mobile operations - Open or close your garage door from anywhere via your smartphone. Not only is that convenient if you wanted to open the garage door for your kids - but you're at work - but it's also an added safety measure. Here's why ...

Smartphone vs. garage door opener

Where is your garage door opener? Is it in your car? If you said yes, you're like a majority of homeowners in Southeastern Louisiana. The problem is, what if someone breaks into your car when it's not parked in the driveway and takes your garage door opener? They now have access to your home.

The typical solution is to bring your opener in with you (at home, at work, at the store while you're on errands). But not only is that not as easy as it seems, but what if you forget to bring your opener back with you? Now what?

That's where MyQ's smartphone capabilities come into play. We all carry our smartphones with us everywhere we go. It makes perfect sense to be able to use our phones to operate our garage doors, right?

Now you can, thanks to LiftMaster's MyQ Connected Home.

Want to learn more about this awesome, new-age service? Wondering if it's the right fit for you? Our garage door specialists will be more than happy to talk with you about the app. We'll help you come to a decision that's right for you and your family. In the end, our main goal is to keep our customers happy and secure.

And that's why we're so excited to be an authorized dealer for this and other LiftMaster garage door products. Contact us today to learn more about how we can make your garage door more secure and easier to manage.
