What Security Features Are Available For My Garage Door?

garage door safety features

In today’s day and age, it is vital that you take all the precautions available to safeguard your home and your family. Neighborhood Garage Door Repair seamlessly navigates these security issues for homeowners every day. 

When thieves and intruders are looking to break into your home nine times out of ten they are going through the garage door. Taking advantage of some of these tips will help you become less of a target and more of a conscience and proactive homeowner.

Utilize Remote Lockout

The remote lockout is a feature that disables all your remotes only leaving access to the garage from the keypad. All you have to do is hold the lock button down until the light starts to flash and there you have it, instant security in a pinch. 

This is an excellent feature to use when you or one of the family members has misplaced a remote or if you go on vacation. No need to worry about a stolen garage door remote, all you have to do is follow those steps and they will no longer have access to your home.

Invest In An Updated Trolley Release System

One of the downfalls of older garage door systems is that intruders could easily break in through the trolley release system with a wire hanger or other methods. This emergency release is basically a cord that you pull down and allows you to use the garage door manually.

A new but simple advancement in technology has fixed this glitch and allowed for a safer garage door. Instead of the cord being pulled down you must pull the cord back to release it, making it almost impossible to maneuver from the outside.

Secure Your Windows and Doors

This may sound obvious and self-explanatory but you need to keep all your garage door windows and doors closed. When you are rushing out early in the morning it is easy to forget to close your garage door. 

Kids are another culprit when it comes to leaving things wide open. Make sure they understand the importance of keeping the home secure.

Install Advanced Technology and Security Systems

If you have an older garage door it is time to start thinking about a possible replacement. There are new systems put in place now that keep us ten times more secure than what we used to be. The MyQ system is wi-fi connected and monitors your garage door comings and goings remotely.

With this system, you can sit in a meeting in another time zone and receive alerts every time your garage door opens or closes all right there on your smartphone. The MyQ system is even more attractive being that it is compatible with almost every garage door manufactured after 1993.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
