A garage door motor is an essential component of a modern garage door system. There are two main types of garage door motors: belt-driven and chain-driven. Belt-driven motors are quieter and more expensive, while chain-driven motors are louder and less expensive.

When choosing a garage door motor, there are several factors you should consider. The first is the size and weight of your garage door. You want to make sure that the motor is powerful enough to lift the door, but not so powerful that it consumes a lot of energy or generates too much noise. You should also consider the type of garage door you have, as some motors are designed for specific types of door

Main Benefits of Garage door Automation

Increased Garage Security

One of the main benefits of garage door automation is increased security. Automated garage doors can be equipped with security features such as password protection and automatic lock-out, which can help prevent unauthorized access to your garage. 

In addition, many automated garage door systems come with sensors that can detect when the door is open or closed, allowing you to monitor the status of your garage from anywhere with an internet connection

Convenience & Energy Benefits

Another benefit of garage door automation is the convenience it provides. With an automated system, you don’t have to worry about getting out of your car to open the garage door in bad weather or when your hands are full. 

You can simply use the remote control or your smartphone to open the door, and then drive right into the garage.

There are also energy saving benefits to garage door automation. If you forget to close your garage door, an automated system can be programmed to close it automatically after a certain amount of time has passed. This can help prevent heat or air conditioning from escaping, which can save you money on your energy bills.


It is important to choose a motor that is appropriate for your door and your budget, and to have it installed by a professional
