Sears' Craftsman brand debuted two new garage door opener models that allow for users to operate and monitor their garage door from anywhere in the world via a smartphone or PC.

The AssureLink DC Chain Drive Garage Door Opener and AssureLink DC Belt Drive Garage Door Opener with DieHard Battery Back-up allow a user to check their garage door remotely if they believe they may have forgotten to close it when they left the house. It can also be used to open the garage door remotely to allow in guests or family members.

Since the garage door is being operated remotely the device uses extra safety measures. When a door close command is issued via a smartphone, Underwriter Laboratories-approved audible and visual alerts warn anyone nearby that the garage door is about to close. In case someone does not hear or see the alerts, or something is inadvertently left in the door's path, the garage door openers also include infrared safety reversing sensors and a contact reversal system that can detect obstructions during the closing process, stop the door from closing, and reverse the door to the fully opened position.

AssureLink comes with a gateway that requires connection to a home internet router. Once connected, the user registers the router online and activates the Gateway. Free apps for iPhone and Android can be downloaded to enable smartphone control.

Beginning with year two there will be an annual activation fee of $19.99 for the online service.
