Door Doctors preferred supplier Merlin have announced a new range of garage door openers called Merlin MyQ, designed for ‘smart homes’ – so you’re able to control the doors from any internet-enabled device (e.g. smartphone, laptop, tablet).
This represents one less item on the keyring, one less battery to replace, and increased security for the garage doors (the Merlin MyQ app platform uses strong encryption technology and offers choices based on security / convenience). It can also be configured to open (or simply just opened and closed remotely) for tradesmen or delivery drivers, so you don’t need to be at home when they come by.
Grant Emanuel, the head of marketing at Chamberlain Australia (Merlin owner) has been quoted as follows: “Automating your garage door with the PowerLift MyQ not only makes getting in and out of your home much easier, it also solves those panic moments when you rush out of the house to get to work and then question whether you left the garage door open or not.”
The app will notify homeowners any time the garage door is opened or closed, which will lead to better security and increased peace of mind for those who have valuables in their garage or it connects to the rest of the house.
The PowerLift MyQ will include obstruction detection safety beams and premium reversal technology which will protect children, pets, the car, or anything else that may get in the way of the door. It can be attached to single or double sectional doors up to 16m² and, like the rest of the Merlin product range, is protected by a seven-year warranty and Merlin’s excellent after sales support service.
