First of all, we strongly recommend an upgrade to a newer model if your garage door operator was manufactured before 1999. Most manufacturers have discontinued making parts for older units, making parts costly and difficult to find. Today our motors come standard with safety features like rolling code technology which tumbles the entry code out of billions of potential candidates, and auto-reverse, which prevents the door from impacting any obstructions when closing.
Some Tips For Added Door Security
Never leave your keys in the car even if it’s parked in the garage, on that note, you should also never leave your garage door open when you’re not nearby, because potential thieves would love to peruse your valuables. A light on the exterior of your garage with a spotlight or motion sensor is highly advisable. Don’t leave your garage door remote out in the open. If you keep remotes in your car at night, put them in the glove compartment or center console to make them less visible. If you have an attached garage, make sure you lock all interior doors leading into the house.
