We had a new garage door installed. It took a little longer than we wanted to get around to it, but it is nice to not have leaves blowing inside your house! We needed a door that would make the best use of space, so an up-and-over style wasn’t going to work. We decided to go with a roller door – the one we picked:

  • Matches the colour of our windows
  • It rolls up tight so as to maximize space in the garage
  • Has an intrusion alarm
  • Can be opened or closed without power if needed
  • Fully weather sealed
  • Detects objects in the way

We wanted to go one step further, we need it to be convenient. We added in a WiFi plug (which in turn integrates with IFTTT and Google Assistant), which toggles a power supply. As far as the door is concerned, it is being operated with a key switch, but for us, we gain a lot of convenience!
