The Benefits of a WiFi Garage or Gate Upgrade for NDIS Participants

Living with a disability can be challenging, and NDIS participants often have unique mobility needs that require tailored support. A WiFi garage or electric gate upgrade can be a valuable addition for NDIS participants who want to enhance their mobility and independence. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of a WiFi garage or gate upgrade through this lens:

Remote Accessibility

A WiFi garage or gate upgrade allows users to open and close their garage doors or gates remotely using a mobile or tablet app. This feature can be particularly helpful for NDIS participants who may have difficulty getting in and out of their cars or prefer to use the function to let people into their homes. With remote access, they can easily control access to their homes without needing to be physically near a remote or button. 

Safety & Security

WiFi garage or gate upgrades enhance safety over traditional garage doors or gates. They use advanced encryption technology and sensors to let you know when the garage is opened or closed. This feature can be particularly helpful for NDIS participants who may have concerns about their safety and security or those who may accidentally leave the gate or garage open. 


For NDIS participants, a WiFi garage or gate upgrade can provide a significant improvement to independence. With remote access, it is much easier to come and go from their homes without needing remotes or fobs. This newfound independence can help boost confidence and self-esteem.


WiFi garage or gate upgrades come with a range of customization options that can be particularly helpful for NDIS participants. For example, users can set up custom access keys (up to 100!)  for caregivers or family members, and they can even set up alerts that notify them when someone enters or exits their homes. This can be helpful for those who may have difficulty hearing or seeing traditional garage door or gate alerts.

To conclude… 

A WiFi garage or gate upgrade can be a powerful tool for NDIS participants. It can provide them with enhanced safety and security, newfound independence, and significantly more convenience. If you or a loved one is an NDIS participant, a WiFi garage or gate upgrade may be an investment worth considering.
