Investing in Garage Door Security07/22/2014 Back To Blog
Thieves are becoming ever more inventive. Now they are used overhead and residential roll up garage doors more often to get into homes. Find out what measures you can take to protect your property and your loved ones.
How to Boost Garage Door Security
It is best if you choose a garage door opener with rolling code technology. This technology changes the access code automatically after each use to ensure that the risk of thieves or vandals guessing the code and getting inside is reduced to the lowest possible minimum. These openers and their respective remote controls have been around for quite some time and are becoming more and more widely used. They are no longer considered to be technologically advanced innovation and this makes them much more affordable for the average homeowner.
It also makes sense to invest in a wireless garage door keypad. It will give you an even higher level of security. This is also becoming a commonplace feature rather than a luxury. It is slowly replacing the traditional lock. The best part is that you can use both technologies together for achieving an even higher level of security.
It is also possible to install light sensors and security cameras to cover the area in front of the garage door. These additional measures can be useful to all homeowners and especially to those who have luxury vehicle or whose garages are situated at a considerable distance from the residential building on the property. Again, the investment which you will make does not have to be particularly large. There are various types of affordable security kits for home use.
Finally, you have to ensure that just like all garage door parts, all security features will be properly installed and maintained in perfect condition. The devices which will be set outside have to be weatherproof or properly shielded. Regular cleaning is needed as well.
