The majority of homes have a garage door that they use to park their car in or even as storage to keep their belongings that need to be out of the weather. The garage is usually mounted to the frame the of the house and a motor is installed that works with a series of tracks and springs to open and close it with the click of a button. If you are one of the people that park a vehicle in the garage then you know that when it stops working it can be a real problem. There are several different options that can be used to open and close your garage door. AAA Action Doors lists different garage door opening options that you can have installed.
Standard Garage Door Clicker
This is what most garage doors come with and is a grey or black clicker that hangs on the visor in your car. The clicker has one or two buttons that are synced to the garage door motor and when clicked will open and close the garage. This is a great option but not the only one.
Wireless Keypad Garage Door Opener
A wireless keypad is installed on the outside of the home and can be paired to your garage using a set of digitals as a passcode to activate the garage door to open or close. One great benefit to this kind of entry is that you can give the code to other people that may not have a car of have one of the two standard clickers that come with the garage. The code can be changed if you feel like someone has gained access that you don’t want to have access any longer.
Mini Garage Door Remote Clicker
This is an alternative to the standard clicker and can be used in its place. A mini clicker is just as the name suggests it is a clicker but smaller. Many people that park outdoors at other locations do not want their clicker in view so that just anyone can see it. You can take this smaller size clicker and place it in a spot that is not easily seen when you look inside the car.
Garage Door Car Remote Opener
In most newer model cars you will find a set of buttons above the rearview mirror. These are part of the car and you can set them to the frequency of your specific garage door. This will let you open and close your garage door without any clicker at all and you don’t have to worry about the batteries going out in the clicker or the wireless key pad.
