GARAGE DOOR OPENER SAFETY & SECURITY
Though they are a safety feature, like all technology, they aren’t without flaw. Garage door openers can be vulnerable to key fob hacks and door release handle destruction. Keeping these things in mind, purchase a garage door opener which features a rolling-code so the codes expire after only a few seconds. Only pressing the fob button once eliminates transmitting multiple codes which could be made available to hackers. The garage door handle can be compromised with a simple coat hanger. To avoid such an intrusion, the placement of a zip tie around the door release is strong enough to keep the door release from being pulled down.
