You drive up to your garage door and reach overhead to grab your clicker (aka remote garage door control). It’s not there!  You look in your glove compartment… down on the floor… you shut off the engine and start looking around on the floor… look under your seat… The clicker is gone!  Just … gone!   Maybe you’ve stopped at the grocery store on the way home and you know that the ice cream is melting and your frozen foods are thawing out even as you speak. The pressure is on. Your blood pressure is rising. This is definitely not what you had in mind when you arrived home, is it? What are you going to do?

After a few eye rolls, sighs, and maybe muttering some choice words under your breath, you trudge up the sidewalk, unlock your door, enter your garage, and press the button.  The door comes up.. you get your in your car… drive in.. and then after unloading the children or the melting and thawing food, or the important stuff you’ve had to take home from work, you hit the button again, and the door closes.

That doesn’t solve the mystery of your missing clicker. You look all over your house.  It’s …. just… gone… And you’re going to have to buy a new one.  More money down the drain.  Wonderful.

You wouldn’t run into that problem if you had a garage door app on your smartphone.  You’ve been meaning to download the app on your smart phone and set it up, but you haven’t gotten around to it, but now it’s skyrocketed to the top of your list of things to do…. pronto!  You definitely don’t want to go through the same drama tomorrow… or later today!

Most of the major garage door opener companies now offer smartphone apps for recent garage door models that allow you to open and close your garage door with ease.  There’s no searching for that extra control. It’s right there…  on your phone… something that we’ve learned that we can’t live without.

To avoid the confusion and frustration of locating your clicker, or having to go through the extra expense of buying a new one,  if you haven’t downloaded the app for your smartphone, download it today!
