Ways Of Improving Your Garage Security

Like most of us, you probably keep your garage door opener remote on the sun visor in your car or truck. You may even keep it in the open console on the dash area. Leaving your remote out and visible like that leaves it susceptible to being stolen, therefore giving intruders access to your garage and even to your home as well if the garage is attached. Your mind can be put to ease by arming yourself with the latest technology from your Neighborhood Garage Door Services of Seattle, Washington.

The Latest Technology To Help Secure Your Garage

Was your overhead garage door opener made before 1999, if so then we suggest an upgrade to a newer model that will help you be more secure without any worries. Most of the older models have since been discontinued and therefore making replacement parts very hard to find and also sometimes quite expensive as well. A few of the newer models come with safety features such as rolling code technology, this creates a new code with every press of the remote button which makes it a lot harder to copy the code.

Also some of the newer models come with wall stations that include a “vacation switch” lock, when activated this function disables all access from any and all opener remotes. There is also the Door Report remote, this remote will beep and light up when the garage door is left open for any reason at all, this will help you answer that age old question “did I close the garage door?”

How To Be Safe When A New Motor Is Not In The Budget

If a new motor for your garage door opener just isn’t in the budget at this time we still want you to be safe. So here are 11 ways for you to help keep your remote, your garage and your home safe and secure on a budget.

lock your garage door for safety

  1. When locking up at night don’t forget to lock up the garage door too, most doors have a slide lock that will add extra security to the door.
  2. If you leave your car in the driveway or maybe in a parking lot then make sure that you keep it locked and also set the alarm if you have one.
  3. Lock up all doors leading to the home from the garage if your home is attached to your garage.
  4. Even if you leave your car in the garage make sure never to leave any of your keys in your car.
  5. When on vacation or away from the home for a while make sure that you set the “vacation switch, or you could also even unplug the unit itself too.
  6. Do not leave the garage door open when you’re not around, this gives people a look at what you have and also gives them access to all your belongings as well.
  7. If you have windows on the door you can frost them to avoid people from having a view, when buying a new door think about no windows or maybe placing them at the very top of the door.
  8. Never share your code with anyone, and if you must share it with them then clear out the old one and enter in the new one.
  9. Make sure that the exterior of your garage door is well lit with a motion light or even a good spotlight.
  10. Invest in an alarm system for your garage.
  11. Keep your remotes out of sight when not in the vehicle, for example you could store them in the glove box or in the center console so they aren’t in sight to anyone.

store your garage door remote in your glove box for safety

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.
