The convenience of having a smart home control your TV, lights, thermostat or music doesn’t have to stop indoors. You can upgrade your garage door opener to work with your smart device for a seamless transition. Having a garage door opener that is compatible with your smart home goes beyond convenience as it increases the safety and security of your home.

Opener-Legacy-920-with-Integrated-OHD-AnywhereTo make this upgrade, your garage door opener must be compatible with OHD Anywhere®, Overhead Door’s™ advanced opener that enables garage door control from most Apple and Android smart devices. You can also configure OHD Anywhere® to work with your existing home automation system using Google Home or Amazon Alexa enabling voice control. The Legacy® 920 is the recommended garage door opener model for smart home adoption. This garage door opener comes equipped with OHD Anywhere® enabling wi-fi and smart device control capabilities.

Beyond the dynamic smart home integration, the Legacy® 920 features strength and efficiency with an opening speed of 7.0 inches per second. The opener is quiet with a soft start and stop design that offers flexibility as you choose whether your opener is made with a belt or chain rail to suit your preference.
