Garage Door Security is No Joke!

Did you know that a high percentage of house burglars gain access through the garage because the garage is often times the most vulnerable?

Many garage doors, are not properly maintained, left unlocked or left open for easy perpetrator access.

Even if you’re only planning to be gone for a minute or two, it’s never safe to leave your garage door open because it takes only a split second for an experienced burglar to step inside and do their thing.

The truth is that you could have the very best garage door opener and security money can buy, but if you leave your garage door open and vulnerable, what good does it do you?

Don’t Forget about Your Garage Access Door

a residential garageIf you have an attached garage with a connecting door leading into the house, you need to be especially mindful of garage door security because once a burglar is inside your garage, they can stealthily move about without being seen from the street.

Your garage access door should be treated with the same regard towards security as you give your front door by installing a deadbolt lock.

Upgrading Your Garage Door Opener

If your garage door opener is an older model, you might want to consider upgrading it to a newer one with state-of-the-art technology, including built-in security features such as:

  • Chamberlain®/Liftmaster Security+® anti-burglary technology.  Security+® provides protection against burglars with sophisticated code grabbing devices. Each time the remote control is activated, Security+® automatically rolls the code over to any one of 100-billion codes and is never repeated.
  • Liftmaster also offers Multi-Function Remote Controls that open your garage door and  turn on lights inside your home from the safety and comfort of your car.
