Garage door openers have been around for decades, but now you can go high-tech with yours. The Momentum Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener Controller with Built-in Camera doubles as a security camera as well as a controller for your existing opener. While keeping an eye on your vehicles from an Android/iOS app, you can also open and close your garage door remotely from the same app.
This controller is quick and easy to install and works by plugging in the camera and connecting it to your Wi-Fi network. It works with most garage opener models made since 1993. It works alongside the Momentum app for iOS and Android by showing multiple camera feeds at once as you track the field of vision around the camera.
You can create custom rules and settings in the app and store important data in the cloud. A micro SD card slot allows for an extra 128GB of storage. You can receive notifications on your device if the camera detects motion or sound.
The camera is also equipped with a built-in microphone and speaker for two-way audio that allows you to listen and talk to anyone in the garage. Don’t worry if someone is headed out the door and you forgot to tell them something; you can grab their attention via the speaker.
Along with video and audio, you can also open and close your garage door remotely, meaning no more worries if a big storm comes up and you realize you forgot to close the garage door. You can do it from the convenience of the Momentum phone app.
