Open Your Garage Door With Your Smartphone

by Hazel Chua

So you’re in your car, ready to head off to work, when you realize you can’t get the garage door open because you left the remote in the kitchen table. Or you could have just gotten home – only to have to park your vehicle outside while you rummage around your glove compartment trying to find where you stuffed the garage door remote earlier.

Craftsman AssureLink Garage Door Opener

Well, if you’ve got the Craftsman AssureLink, then that won’t be a problem anymore. This device is an extremely updated and upgraded version of the usual garage door opener.

Instead of a remote, you can just use your smartphone to open and close the door. Huge plus side is that your phone is probably just lying somewhere on your dashboard or in your shirt pocket, so locating it is a breeze. Aside from that, the app for the AssureLink will allow you to monitor its status and even close and open it, even while you’re away – in case you can’t remember if you closed it.

The AssureLink app works by connecting to your home’s wireless network via MyQ Technology. Aside from letting you control your garage door, this technology can also connect and provide you access to other devices in your house.

The Craftsman Garage Door app can be downloaded for free (obviously) for iPhone or Android devices, but it won’t do you any good without the garage door opener, which sells for about $275 (USD).
