It is a fact that burglars look for the easy opportunity when searching for houses to rob. They look for the obvious, such as open windows with no one home, no lights on for a few days, no pets and an easy-to-break-in garage door. Don’t let yourself become a victim — safeguard your garage door.
Did you know that it only takes about three minutes for expert thieves to break into your garage door, open it and enter the house? How do they do it and how can you prevent it? All that the thief does is trip the garage door safety release, and this can be easily done with a hanger or piece of wire. Once the release is moved to the open position, the thief can manually open the door and enter the garage. Here are a few tips to safeguard your garage door when you have a remote control system:
Of course, there are a few other things you can do to keep burglars away from your garage door. For instance, install a motion sensor light near your garage door. A type of movement will cause the light to come on and will keep the thieves from breaking in. Another great tip is to keep a radio turned on in the garage. Typically the sound of voices will keep thieves away too.
