Why You’ll Love the Overhead Door™ Anywhere App

Posted by Overhead Door of Sioux City and Yankton | Sep 23, 2020 7:58:15 AM


We want convenience in our daily lives. We have AI assistants that can turn on the lights and set the thermostat, robots that automatically vacuum our floors, cameras that show us who is at the door and speakers that know our favorite music. It makes sense that you should also be able to control your garage door with a touch of the button.

How the Overhead Door Anywhere App Works

The  Overhead Door™ Anywhere App allows you to control and monitor your garage door from literally anywhere with your Apple® iPhone or Android phone or device. Overhead Door Anywhere App uses a sensor attached to the garage door - an important security advantage versus other systems that monitor the opener instead of the garage door position.

Any time the door changes position, even if it is operated manually, you are alerted. The app is compatible with both Google Home and Amazon Alexa home automation systems.


Why You Need It

How many times have you driven away from your home, only to wonder if the garage door lowered all of the way? Or, how many times have you wished you could just buzz a neighbor or friend in to check on your pets or grab a package? With  Overhead Door Anywhere App, all of that is possible, and more.

No matter where you are, work, vacation, your living room, you can check if your garage door is open, closed or if there is any change to the door position. You can also open the door for anyone such as a delivery or repair person or friends without having to provide a password to your keyless garage pad.

Plus, it provides extra home security. You’ll instantly know that someone is operating your garage door. Also, with Overhead Door Anywhere App smart device enabled garage door controller, you also can access the history for each opener you have which tells you when the door was used, including dates and times.
