Garage Door Security Tips

garage door security tips

Garage doors are an easy entry point for would-be burglars. Studies show that it only takes a few seconds for a skilled thief to get your garage door open. Even if you have an automatic garage door opening system, there are several ways thieves can access a garage and your home. Power tools, equipment, cars, lawn mowers, recreational vehicles and bicycles have good resell value and are therefore of interest to someone looking for things to steal.

There are a number of important ways you can help deter criminals by securing your garage doors and access to them. They are:

  1. Consider a solid garage door, one with windows that are high, or keep the windows covered.
  2. Install a motion sensor light at the garage door.
  3. Install a security system.
  4. Make sure the garage door has a secure locking mechanism, such as a padlock or deadbolt.
  5. Never leave your garage remote in the car.
  6. Ensure the service door near your garage is also equipped with a deadbolt.
  7. If you have an attached garage, lock all the interior doors that give access to your home.
  8. If you have an older garage door, consider replacing the motor to one with up-to-date security features and open-door alerts.
  9. Add a peep hole so that you can see out in the event of a noise or disturbance while you are inside.
  10. Employ a zip tie to keep crooks from using a coat hanger to reach the emergency release handle.
  11. Install a loud alarm that senses motion or movement.
  12. Keep a radio or television on when you are not home.

I’m so glad that I contacted Bill @ Habpro when the spring in my garage door broke. I called mid-morning and he had a technician at my home that afternoon. The technician was kind and extremely professional. He had the garage door fixed very quickly and for a great price! I would ABSOLUTELY recommended Habpro to all of my friends and family! What a great experience with great people!

Kaylee F.

Wonderful quick service. They helped me find the part to replace and came out within a few days. Greg was able to have the problem fixed within in hour time and also gave me some insight as to why the problem happened in the first place. Price was very reasonable as well. Will def be using this company again and refer them to my friends and family.

Daniel B.

Fantastic service and premium quality product. Bill gave me competitive prices on two insulated metal doors and programmable openers, scheduled the installation at a convenient time for me, and Chuck who did the installation show up right on time. After he thoroughly cleaned up, he stayed and helped sync both vehicles to the openers. I highly recommend Habpro. You won't be disappointed.
