Home Garage Security Tip
Don’t Leave the Opener in the Car
Most people would never think to leave their keys in the car but a garage door remote is the same thing – easy access in a matter of seconds. Leave your window down or don’t lock your car and it’s an invitation into your home.
Avoid giving a burglar easy access to your garage by taking the remote with you, whether you’re parked in the driveway for the night or if you’re headed into the office. Never leave your remote garage door opener in the car, even when it’s parked in the garage. You can get a small key-chain remote to replace your big remote at most home improvement stores or the place where you bought your garage door opener. You’ll want to match the remote to the brand and year of your current opener and follow the enclosed instructions to program it.
