Our tips on how to keep your garage door safe

Always make sure the door is properly closed

Try to avoid leaving the garage door open, even if you are leaving the house just for a few minutes. We highly recommend not to take a chance in that matter and make sure the door is closed well. Don’t allow the burglars to have the slightest chance of getting in.

 
Lock the door inside

In most garages, there’s an interior door inside that provides access to the house. Moreover, in almost all cases, people tend to leave it open. This door acts as a direct passage to your home. Therefore, it is very important to lock it so the burglar won’t be able to get into your house, even if he broke into your garage door.

 
Always carry your remote with you

Almost all people keep the garage remote in the car, in a visible place. However, it’s a big mistake! It’s easier to break into your car than you think, especially if the remote key is located in an easy place that can be seen. So, make sure to have the remote with you at all times, and if you have to, avoid leaving it in a visible spot.

 
Maintain the garage door

In order to keep the door secure, check it from time to time (best on a regular basis). Don’t wait for it to malfunction in order to maintain it. Moreover, a non-operational  door increases the chances of having break-in incidents

 
Have a high secured lock instead of a regular one

Some people have a garage door with a simple lock only. We highly suggest you install a smart lock on the garage door instead of an easy lock with a key. That way, not only you lower the chances of a break-in. But, also there is no way you can lose the key
