Nowadays, if your home doesn’t have a garage door, it’s more than likely not going to sell in today’s competitive market. One of the great joys of having a home is having a garage to place your vehicle in and have extra storage or work space. However, all of these advantages can quickly go away if you don’t keep your garage secure. Last week, we discussed getting rid of your garage door remote as it can be easily stolen out of your car. This week, we want to talk to you about keyless entry, particularly a keyless garage door opener that uses a keypad, and how beneficial it will be for you.
If you haven’t considered using a garage door keypad or keyless garage door opener before, here are three reasons you need one for your garage.
Easy Changing of Locks
Ever questioned what happens if you do lose your key or suspect someone has stolen it? We’ve seen it happen multiple times: couples spend their time trudging through a long and costly process of changing the locks and getting new keys for everyone who needs one, only to go through it all over again if they lose the keys again.
If you’ve got a garage door opener keypad, you can change the “locks” in seconds. Access is provided through a keypad code, so if you’re afraid someone unauthorized has gotten access to your code, all you have to do is change the code. If someone gets the new code, a few seconds of reprogramming makes you secure once more.
No Keys or Remotes to Lose
If you aren’t currently operating on a keyless garage door opener system, then you need to know where all the keys or remote garage door openers are at all times. And if you have a million jobs on your to-do list, then you’re already well aware of how easy these small objects are to misplace. You’ve already got your house keys, possibly multiple car keys, maybe an office key… do you really need one more key to worry about? With a keyless garage door opener, you can never lose your key because, well, you don’t have one! As long as you know your code, you can always get into your garage without a problem, keeping everyone unauthorized out of your garage at all times.
There’s another great feature of some keyless garage door opener systems that you may not be aware of. Let’s say you have family or friends coming in from out of town and they’re staying with you for a few days. They’re scheduled to arrive at your house during rush hour traffic and you won’t be home in time to open the house for them. On a keyless entry system, you have the option to set a temporary code on your garage door keypad. This is a code that will work for the amount of time you set, and only for that time. This prevents you from having to tell people who don’t live in your house on a full-time basis your garage door code.
Make the Convenient Choice
As you can see, a keyless garage door opener system is extremely convenient, and the right system can be much easier and less expensive to install than you might imagine. If you’re still working with a traditional key entry system for your garage door, it’s time to move into the year 2017 and provide an added level of safety and convenience for your family.
