How can an automated garage door help you this holiday season?

The festive season is fast approaching, and whilst it’s the most wonderful time of the year for the majority, it can also be the most stressful for a lot of homeowners. Whether you are trying to keep your home safe and secure during the darker winter hours or, trying to find some efficiency in the chaos of Christmas, there are always ways to make our lives a little easier this year. 

But how can Ellard help? Our innovative smart home technology makes the use of your garage door at the busy time of year, quick, easy and secure. Here are our top 7 tips for promoting safety and efficiency through the winter months.

Whether you're staying home for the holidays, visiting family and friends, or going away during the winter season, the safety and security of your home are always at the forefront of your (and our) mind. 

There are several features of our innovative TVNRG panel that help guarantee that your home stays secure during this busy time of year.

  1. If you are going away this year, you can set your panel into ‘Holiday Mode’. By enabling this setting, you disable the front cover control buttons. This will prevent any operation of your garage while you’re away, ensuring the security of your home and offering you peace of mind.

  1. The TVNRG uses Bi-directional radio communication to determine the status of your garage door. This means that you won't have to face the cold winter nights to check if your property is safe, you simply need to check your ASK wall transmitter to know if your door is open or closed.

  1. With a built-in alarm function, the TVNRG detects excessive force and will alert the homeowner through an optional 90dB alarm. This feature will not only alert you to a potential break-in but will deter anyone trying to gain access.

  1. With the addition of the Smartlife garage door controller, you can control and check your garage door by utilising the app on your phone. No matter where you are, as long as you have a signal, you can quickly and easily check the status of your door, a great feature for those who are away for the holidays. 

  1. The Smartlife app provides you with real-time notifications when it is in operation or if it is left open for a long period of time. This feature offers you another level of security and protection, no matter how far away from home you are, you’ll know your property is safe. 

The festive season is a busy time, with lots of deliveries, people in and out of the house, and friends and family coming to stay! 

With all this footfall it can be hard to keep up, but with the addition of Smartlife, you can take some of the pressure off. 

  1. For many around this time of year, you’ll see a spike in the number of parcels being delivered. Your parcels will stay safe by utilising the Smartlife app,  with access to your door wherever you are, you can operate your door from work, the shops, or even from another country. This is a great feature, that allows you to grant access to the garage for your parcels to be placed safely, securely and away from the elements. 

  1. Have people staying with you?  Smartlife's temporary access feature is a useful tool during the festive season when guests come over. It's a breeze to grant controlled access to your garage, ensuring convenience without compromising security. By setting time-limited access, sharing becomes stress-free, allowing guests to come and go smoothly. With monitoring features in place, you'll stay informed about who's using the garage, offering peace of mind while enjoying the holidays with your guests.

Take some of the stress away this year and ensure your peace of mind. With Ellard’s garage door automation technology, our gift to you this year is unmatched efficiency and security.
