How to Stop Garage Door Break-ins
It seems like we hear about thieves and burglars every day. From entering through a loose window or breaking in from an unlocked door, these criminals are becoming far more capable of finding ways to enter into your home. In more recent developments, burglars have started to utilize garage doors as on entry way into homes. This post is intended to give some insight on how to stop garage door break-ins, so that you can keep you family and your valuables safe.
Suggestion #1: Install Security Cameras
By installing security cameras, you provide an extra layer of safety to your home. With cameras, you’re able to monitor what’s going on in and around your door, and stop the burglar. If space or aesthetics is a concern, you can switch to a garage door opener with a camera installed. Our recommended opener is the LiftMaster 87504 – call for more details.
Suggestion #2: Purchase Tinted Glass
For the garage door owners with glass, our suggestion is to tint those windows! If the criminal can’t see anything valuable in your home, they usually won’t go through the trouble of breaking in. The 4 most common types of glass alterations are clear, obscure, frost, and dark tint – but there’s many more styles depending on what kind of door you get.
Suggestion #3: Keep Your Remotes in the House
Our last suggestion would be to keep all of your opener remotes inside the home. Burglars check typical areas for keys and access methods that are non-destructive and hard to trace (like keys under the carpet). By keeping these items inside of your home, you prevent easy, non traceable access to your home and your belongings.
