Security and your Garage Doors

garage door security and safety

 

At night when you make sure all the doors are locked around the house make sure you check and see that your garage door is completely closed!

 

  • The door from the garage to the house should be as secure as your front door. Put a deadbolt on the door between your house and garage. Always lock the door from the garage to the inside of your home for greater safety and security.

 

  • When you are on vacation or away from your home for a long period of time, unplug the garage door opener unit.

 

  • Don’t leave the garage door remote in your vehicle – if a thief breaks in to your car and steals the remote he has a way into your home. Also never leave the remote control in your car when using a parking attendant. It should be treated like a house key.

 

  • Modern automatic garage door openers now feature rolling-code technology, where your remote will transmit a brand new security code each time you press your remote. There are over 100 billion codes, so the likelihood of a code grabber working is very slim. Consider purchasing a garage door opener with rolling code technology! Overhead Door of Waterbury carries rolling code technology garage door openers, call for assistance at 860-274-3332.

 

  • A wireless keypad activates the garage door opener with a personal identification number (PIN). Family members can open the garage door without using the remote or key. Never disclose your (PIN) or leave it written down so that someone can see it.

 

  • Don’t leave your garage door open at any time! You would be amazed at how many people leave their garage doors open all the time! You are just inviting someone to pop into your home and grab something.

 

  • Remember to not neglect the maintenance on the mechanical parts of your garage door and keep an eye out for corrosion. Don’t forget the door from your garage to your house: check the frame, locks, hinges and any replaceable items.

for better security watch garage door close
