How You Can Keep Intruders Out10/15/2013 Back To Blog
There were hardly any improvements on the security of garage doors up until the 1990s and, hence, most of them could be easily violated. Recent surveys in Nevada have proven that intruders have always preferred to enter homes from garage doors since it seemed to be the weakest point in the house. The rapid change of technology has currently changed this scenery since an automatic garage door installation is accompanied by multiple accessories and devices that enhance the security of your property.
What does a current security garage door offer?
* Garage doors were always made of wood, steel or aluminum. These have always been the most common materials. The difference with current garage doors is that they are thicker and more durable than before.
* Nowadays there are devices that allow entrance with your fingertips or require a special security code, which may constantly alter for further safety purposes. They don’t cost much and, in most cases, you can install them even if you have an older garage door opener.
* Most people in Las Vegas install security systems in their front doors, but not in the area around their garage doors. Today, these systems are affordable and they can really discourage potential intruders since burglars don’t risk staying too long in one spot trying to figure out how to break your codes or risk activating the alarm system. After all, your camera will record their movements.
* Most homes today install automatic garage door openers and, thus, old technology remotes that used only one constant code stopped being safe. You press your own remote and the neighbor’s garage door opens. Today, people prefer the garage clickers with the rolling codes that practically make the copying or tracing of the codes impossible.
