By Chris Schield, Vice President of Marketing

The difference automation can make is astonishing.

Imagine pulling into your driveway and not having an automated garage door. You’d have to stop your car. Get out. Manually open the door. Get back in your car. Pull in. Get back out of your car again. Manually close the garage door. Then go inside.


That’s a lot of effort.

That’s much better.
