One of the main benefits of an automatic garage door opener is convenience. You can stay in your car until you’re in (or out of) your garage, so you don’t have to get out of your car to open or close your garage. You won’t need to leave your children or dog in the car, or go outside in bad weather just to open or close your garage door.
Modern automatic garage door openers are available with built-in lights to will illuminate your garage or the path to your garage. This type of lighting can be invaluable at night, in the winter or in bad weather.
Garage security is of paramount importance, and so you’ll want to make sure that your automatic garage door opener helps to keep your family, home, and possessions safe.
Look for openers with rolling codes, which change each time the remote button is pressed, and mean only you can get access to your garage. Another feature you may want is Vacation mode, which disables the remote controls. This means that your garage door can only be opened from the inside. Opportunistic thieves or burglars won’t be able to access your garage or your home even with a remote control code scanner.
You won’t need to worry about the garage door crashing down on something or somebody in the way, or fingers getting caught anywhere. For those with a medical condition such as arthritis, or young children, one of these could be essential.
5. Automatic closing
Automatic closing means that you won’t need to get out of your car to close the door, or remember to press the button on your remote; your garage door opener can close itself too. This is ideal if you have children, often forget to close your garage door or get to work and worry that you may not have closed your garage.
6. Low energy use

These enable you to ensure your door is closed, wherever you are, or to sound an alarm to let you know your door is open.

When you think about what they offer, and what they mean to a family with a couple of cars, kids who keep their bikes in the garage and who are concerned about security, they are an absolute bargain.
10. Peace of mind
Whether you simply want to know that your garage door is closed, have a medical condition and can’t open your door yourself, or simply want to save a few minutes every day, an automatic garage door open makes a lot of sense to many people.
