We often wonder what because if the garage door opener is in perfect condition, we s, we should replace it. We know that if your current garage door opener is working perfectly fine, you won’t want to replace it. However, in this opportunity, we want to show you the advantages of replacing a traditional opener with a smart opener.  

Switching to a Garage Door Opener 

Congratulations!  You may be able to convert your traditional garage door opener without any inconvenience. In some cases, you can get the same features you would get if you bought a new smart one. Some options even offer more capabilities, such as smart hub integration.


 You may need a Chamberlain’s Hub. You may already have a Chamberlain garage door opener (or LiftMaster, which Chamberlain owns), but it simply isn’t Wi-Fi enabled. It is when you may need “Chamberlain’s Wi-Fi enabled Garage Hub.” Chamberlain offers many options adapted to all budgets. So it is affordable to add smart characteristics to your garage door.  

Just check your model number with the Chamberlain compatibility tool. If you’re not sure how to do this, you can ask the experts at the Kendall garage door. We help you effectively convert your existing garage door opener into one of the smart garage door openers. 

Even if you don’t have a Chamberlain or LiftMaster garage door opener, the Garage Hub may work with your equipment. Just check for compatibility.


Installing the Garage Hub is simple. You mount a battery-powered door tilt sensor directly on the garage door and point it toward the door opener. You need to pair the  Wi-Fi with your app. Place the wi-fi bridge on the ceiling. It has to be close to the power supply and the garage door opener. Remember that you need a good internet connection.

Fortunately, you don’t have to connect any cables as it uses the same signals as the existing buttons. It is an advantage because you do not need to be an expert. 


Maybe you do not have a Chamberlain garage opener. If you don’t have it, but you need all the functionality of Garage Hub, you can buy a garage.

Garadget points a laser at a reflective patch on your garage door to determine whether or not it is open. When the laser hits the patch and bounces, the device knows the door is closed. On the contrary, if there is no bounce, it means the door is open. 

The device mimics the open button on your main garage door. Remember, the device must be connected to the same terminals the button uses. So that it can send the signal for opening and closing the door, it also pairs with many smart home services and hubs.

As you can see, it is not necessary to make a drastic change in your garage doors nowadays. It is easy to connect or convert an automatic open the door to a smart part thanks to technology. Just check for the right device. 

Add value to your property and strengthen the security of those you love the most by converting your traditional garage door to a smart garage door.
