    Has anyone heard of this product called Garager? It seems to be a decent product that could do some automation to your garage. I just saw the article on CNET.

    I did encounter once that I forgot whether or not I closed my garage. This would come in handy.

    Any additional thoughts on this product?

    Don't know if this is spam or not, but googling for this brings up a lot of noise.

    Personally, these types of products are simply one more way for many more possible hackers to get into your home without using a boot for a door, a rolled up towel to break a window or a set of tools to pick the locks.

    Slow down, check twice. Live longer. To me, this isn't in the 'smarter living' category. :)

    I have been inclined to think that also but which is easier and more likely: physical brute force (lockpicking, breaking) or using high-tech skills and equipment?

    Also which is more likely: forgetting to close the garage door--rendering all security useless--or a high-tech hack?
