Change The Way To Open Your Garage With Smart Garage Door Openers!


Installing one of the top intelligent garage doors is a simple and low-cost method to make your garage more usable and safer. A smart garage door opener allows you to monitor and manage your garage doors from your phone, so you’ll receive alerts whenever someone opens or closes the door.

A bright garage door connects to your current garage door and then to your Wi-Fi network, allowing you to monitor it from wherever you are. You can also connect it to other smart home gadgets, so your bright lights will turn on if you open them at night. Alternatively, you may program your intelligent locks to shut when the door closes.

The finest bright garage doors recommended here cost less than $100 and are meant to be attached to current non-smart garage door openers. If you’re on the market for a new garage door, Chamberlain, Genie, Skylink, and Ryobi all produce Wi-Fi-connected versions ranging in price from $169 to $300, so you won’t need to buy any extra attachments to manage them from your smartphone.

Chamberlain MyQ-G0401 Smart Garage Door Opener

Smart Garage Door Opener

The revised Chamberlain myQ-G0401 smart garage door opener is a more polished forerunner. However, with a white rather than black appearance and a few buttons for manual garage door operation. The Q was exceedingly simple to set up, and its smartphone app was simple.

The Q is compatible with various intelligent home systems, including Google Assistant, XFINITY Home, Alpine Audio Connect, Eve for Tesla, Resideo Total Connect, and Key by Amazon, but, as previously stated, does not support Alexa. If you can get over that, this is the most fabulous bright door lock opener on the market.

Tailwind iQ3

Smart Garage Door Opener

The smart iQ3 Tailwind garage door opener offers a unique function. However, if you have an Android phone, it can utilize your car’s Bluetooth to remotely open/close your garage door. It’s innovative and effective, but there’s no way to change the distance it activates.

Installing the iQ3, like many other intelligent garage door openers, wasn’t as simple as you’d like, but once set up, it performed practically flawlessly. Its easy interface, alerts, and interoperability with Alexa, Google Assistant, SmartThings, and IFTTT attracted us. Versions that function with one, two, or three garage doors are also available.

Chamberlain MyQ-G0301


The Chamberlain MyQ G0301 smart garage door opener is the company’s older model. However, it’s just as valid as the current one. It comes with a garage door sensor and a hub that links to your Wi-Fi connection. The MyQ software, which is accessible for Android and iOS smartphones, allows you to check to see whether your door is open and then remotely close or open it. When you use your smartphone to transmit a command, it is routed to the seat, sending it to the sensor that operates your garage door. MyQ is also one of the finest Google Home compatible gadgets, which means you can use your voice to manage it.

According to Chamberlain, MyQ will function with most models of garage door openers manufactured after 1993 that include standard safety sensors. MyQ integrates with the Nest, SmartThings, and Xfinity House intelligent home systems. This allows you to manage your garage doors with Siri and make lights turn on when you open the door. The one thing it can’t do is work with Alexa. A $49 converter is required if you want it to be one of the greatest HomeKit gadgets.

NEXX GARAGE – 100b Remote Garage Door Opener

Smart Garage Door Opener

The Nexx Garage is the most OK smart garage door opener for Alexa users, but it also works with Google Home, allowing you to open and close the door with voice commands. However, installation is a little more complicated since you must run a cable from your garage to the garage door opener.

Next, owners, like GoGogate owners, may grant authorization to many people, and a calendar in the app shows when and who opened the door. To ask Alexa or Google Assistant to enter your home, a function called Just Drive utilizes geofencing to detect when you get home and will automatically open the garage door if you so want.

Nexx maintains a list of garage door openers that will not operate with its system on its website. However, it admits that the list is incomplete. Nexx has a newer variant, the NXG-200, which is now available for $79.99 and is being reviewed by us.

Garadget: Smart Garage Door Opener


Unlike many smart garage door openers, which utilize a sensor to detect movement to determine whether your garage door is wide open or closed, the Garadget smart garage door opener uses lasers to beam on a reflective tab that you place on your door. That means there’s one smaller piece of machinery with a battery that might die. Still, it also makes setup a little more complex than other intelligent garage door openers since the laser must be perfectly aligned.

The Garagdet app notifies you in live time if your door opens or if it remains open for an extended period. We did, however, receive the rare false alarm. Still, we appreciate that Garadget works with Alexa, Google Assistant, SmartThings, and IFTTT, giving you plenty of choices for connecting it to other intelligent home assistants and gadgets.


Smart Garage Door Opener

GarageMate’s smart garage door opener is almost too simple. Unlike the other intelligent garage door openers we’ve evaluated, GarageMate communicates to your phone by Bluetooth rather than Wi-Fi. You didn’t verify its status or use it when you’re not at home. That’s unfortunate, so it’s ranked lower on our list of the top smart garage door openers.

The GarageMate smart garage door opener does not operate with other intelligent home systems. However, you may use Siri or Google Assistant to activate the app and automatically unlock the door if you have a smartphone. GarageMat’s Activity Log allows you to monitor who opened your garage door for enhanced protection. Also, it operates with up to eight users. If you want something basic, inexpensive, and secure, this is a good option, but it’s not our first pick.


We recommend the Tailwind iQ3 Garage Door Opener if you want a smart garage door opener that works with Alexa. While Tailwind’s setup proved more difficult than Chamberlain’s, it does operate with Amazon’s digital assistant. It also supports multiple users.

Liftmaster has released a slew of new smart garage door openers that feature Chamberlain technology. The Secure View, for instance, features a built-in 1080p camera system, a 2000-lumen LED, and a battery backup. A yearly membership costs $30 for a 7-day backup or $100 for 30 days of storage to store video. Liftmaster garage door openers may only be purchased through authorized dealers.
