Did I Close The Garage (creative program)

Trying to get everyone dressed, fed, and out the door on time in the morning is hard enough. So it’s no surprise you spend some mornings driving around the block wondering if you closed the garage door before you left. With the Garage Door Controller you can use your smartphone to verify the garage door is closed, close it, automatically lock your doors and arm your system. Here’s how to use your garage door controller to make sure your garage is closed and home is protected.

The safe operation of an overhead garage door requires you to look at the door opening before closing the door.  Children, pets, and wildlife can be seriously injured if the door strikes them or crushes them.  The door can cause significant damage if it strikes vehicles, bicycles or other if the door strikes them when closing.  Overhead garage doors are required to have a sensor located near the floor that will stop the door from fully closing or causing the door to return to the open position.  Writing a program to automatically close an unattended overhead door is dangerous.  You should install a camera facing the door and check the camera before closing the overhead door.
