Garage Door Security

Your garage is a vital part of your home’s security profile. Even if it isn’t connected to your home, your garage can still be a target for thieves due to the valuable possessions inside.

The most important concern regarding a garage door’s security is its opener. If your opener is of an older generation, it’s possible that the code used in its signal could be captured by someone nearby and used by another remote. Newer openers, however, use a rolling-code technology that generates a new, random code each time it’s used. This means it would be nearly impossible for anyone to use an outside remote to open your door. For maximum security, make sure that the automatic opener installed employs such a technology.
