Still operating your garage door manually? You need to consider garage door automation.

What is Garage Door Automation?

Garage Door Automation is a process in which electronic controls and features are added to a manual garage door. Once your garage door is automated, you can open and close it using a remote control without manual intervention.

Key Components Involved in Garage Door Automation

The key components involved in an automated garage door include:

  • Garage Door Opener: A motorised device that provides the necessary power to open and close the garage door. A garage door opener is usually installed on the ceiling of the garage.
  • Remote Control: A device that allows you to open and close the garage door from a distance without touching the garage door. A remote control sends signals to the garage door opener to initiate the door’s movements.
  • Control Panel: A control panel works like a remote control but is wall-mounted inside the garage. The control panel allows you to open or close the garage door from inside the garage without a remote control.
  • Sensors: Safety sensors are placed near the bottom of the garage door. These sensors detect obstructions and prevent the door from closing further, ensuring safety.
  • Numeric Keypads: Some garage door automation systems have a numeric keypad or a keyless entry system. The garage door opens and closes when a specific number or passcode is entered using the keypad.
  • Smartphone Integration: The newer garage door automation systems come with smartphone integration. This means you can open and close the garage door using a mobile app installed on your phone. You can use the app to operate your garage door from any location with an internet connection.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is garage door automation?

Garage door automation equates a manual garage door with an automatic opening and closing mechanism. It allows you to operate the garage door remotely using a remote control, keypad, or smartphone.

Can you automate a garage door?

Yes, garage doors can be automated to open and close automatically with the help of various mechanisms and devices.

Can I change a manual garage door to an automatic one?

Yes, converting a manual garage door to an automatic one is possible. This typically involves installing an opener motor, tracks, and other necessary components to enable automated operation.

How much does converting a garage door to an automatic one cost?

The cost of converting a garage door to automatic can vary depending on several factors, such as the type and size of the door, the installation’s complexity, and the automation system’s features.

Can we open an automatic garage door without power?

In most cases, an automatic garage door relies on electricity to operate. However, many modern systems have battery backup options that allow you to open and close the door even during a power outage.

How secure are automatic garage doors?

Automatic garage doors can be secure when installed and configured correctly. They often come with built-in security features such as rolling code technology, which changes the access codes each time the door is operated, making it difficult for unauthorised individuals to gain entry.

Will any remote work on a garage door?

No, not all remotes will work on every garage door. Garage door openers are designed to work with specific remote control models or systems. It’s important to ensure compatibility between the remote and the garage door opener before purchasing.

Can I use my phone as a garage door opener?

Many modern garage door automation systems offer smartphone integration, allowing you to use your phone as a garage door opener. You can control the garage door from your smartphone by installing a compatible app and connecting it to your automation system.

Bryan came out to fix our door which had failed during the warranty period. He installed a new motor and I was able to take the car out of the garage again. Even though it was a quick turnaround he didn’t charge. Would recommend to anyone

Thank you team for the over the phone support in securing the house over the weekend!! Beth at Curl Curl
Recommend Pittwater Garage Door Repairs above all others. They are responsive, knowledgable and willing to go the extra mile to get your repairs done quickly and effectively. I had an issue with my tilt door garage where the fob wasn't speaking to the motor. I also didn't have a key to the safety lock on the outside of the garage. There was no other way into the garage, and as you'd expect, my car is in the garage meaning getting to work became a real hassel. I had called around to several places before settling in with Pittwater Garage Door Repairs. I was promised a time for a local competitor to come around and fix it, and when they didn't show up, I called to book in with Pittwater Garage Door Repairs. The guys there got straight to me and fixed my door, got the motor going and all within the hour. To say I'm impressed with their service, is to say the least!

Couldn't have been happier with the service from Pittwater Garage Doors!! Price was very reasonable and given up front, before I booked the job. They communicated with me well, arrived bang on time, had the door fixed and adjusted efficiently and were friendly as they did it. It was the first time I have used them, but will not be the last!
