Always make sure the door is closed
Try to avoid leaving the garage door open, even if you are going outside for a few minutes. We highly suggest you not take a risk and make sure the door is closed. Don’t allow the burglars to have the slightest chance of getting in.
Lock the door inside
In most garages, there’s an interior door inside that provides access to the house. Moreover, in almost all cases, people tend to leave it open. This door acts as a direct passage to your home. Therefore, it is very important to lock it in case someone broke through your garage door.
Always carry your remote with you
Almost all people keep the garage remote in the car, in a visible place. However, it’s a big mistake! It’s easier to break into your car than you think, especially if the remote key is located in a visible place. So, make sure to have the remote with you at all times, and if you have to, avoid leaving it in a visible spot.
Maintain your door once in a while
In order to keep the door secure, check it from time to time (best on a regular basis). Don’t wait for it to malfunction in order to maintain it. Moreover, a non-operational garage door increases the chances of having break-in incidents
Have a high secured lock instead of a regular one
We highly suggest you install a smart lock on the garage door instead of an easy lock with a key. That way, not only you lower the chances of a break-in. But, also there is no way you can lose the key.
