How the Internet Gateway Works11/30/2014 Back To Blog
We must admit that garage door opener manufacturers often come up with some brilliant ideas on how to reinforce security and convenience. That's exactly the purpose of the Liftmaster Internet Gateway device. Nowadays, the majority of people work long hours, and thus spend the whole day away from the house. People travel more often for various reasons and that keeps them away from home, too. The need to keep control over one's house led to this wonderful idea of having the opportunity to check the status of your overhead door even if you're in the other corner of the world. You can open the door or close it but also control the houselights. It's perhaps the first actual steps towards a smart home situation.
