Google App to open Garages Doors


As leading suppliers of Garage Doors in York, we have always been ahead of the game, working with Hörmann to add leading innovations to garage doors across the city.

In April, we mentioned that an iphone app was being introduced to open garage doors, and discussed the pros and cons of the app, commenting on ease of use and security. After doing some more research into whether this would actually become a reality for homeowners in York, able to open their garage door via their phone, we also discovered that a Google employee has now created an app which works off the Android Wear system and allows him to control lighting, and open his garage door.

According to Gregory, he can use the touch screen element of his wear device to control when the garage door opens, the speed at which it opens, and it has been reported he can even open and close it to differing levels so that if he just needs to nip in quickly, he hasn’t got to open the garage door fully.

Obviously electronic operation for garage doors is an optional extra to garages in York, although more and more homeowners are having them added as standard due to their high quality and improved ease of use. They feature range of different opening systems via remote sensors but with an app to control the door however, these systems could well be changed or phased out in future years. The Android Wear was officially released yesterday.

If however you do not like the idea that a mobile phone can open your garage door in York and would like to have control, electronically operated and manually operated garage doors are available. With a wide range of different types, including up and over and sectional, and a number of materials and colours, every personal preference can be met.
