Garage Butler

If you’re not affluent enough to have an actual garage butler, I’m sure this electronic one will more than suffice. It attaches to the wall next to your garage door’s standard open/close button (required) and will automatically close the door after a set amount of time. (Starting from when the door was opened.) Using a light sensor it will also automatically close the door at night when it gets dark, and it won’t interfere with the door’s auto-reverse safety features either. Installation takes about 30 minutes and while there’s no drilling involved, I’m not sure if it requires any skilled wiring. So for $59.98 you can basically erase one responsibility off of your daily to-do list. For me though, it means I’m going to have to let Jeeves go after 30 years of loyal service in my garage. Maybe I’ll let him keep the tux. (Probably not.)
