Garage doors are dumb. They open and close and open and close and... you get the idea. But they're also essential to keeping your car (or junk) safe, and with the advent of smart garage door openers, they become even more useful. Not only can you open and close the door remotely (shoot, I left it open and I'm already at work!) but you can let delivery people into a neutral spot without worrying that they're going to have access to the rest of the house.

Do you need a smart garage door opener? Of course, you don't need one, but oh my goodness wouldn't your life be better with that kind of automation? I can't tell you how many times I've been frustrated because the signal on my garage door clicker in my car wouldn't connect, or the battery in the remote died, and I had to get out of my car and open it manually LIKE AN ANIMAL. So no, you don't need one, but you'll be so much happier once you get one.

Most of the smart garage door openers on the market are easy enough for the average weekend warrior to install, but if you don't feel up to that, you can get someone to put it in for you without breaking the bank (especially with all the money you'll save on these deals!). When you buy through these links at Amazon, you can add expert installation to your purchase. BAM! Done and done.
