Did you know that your garage is probably the weakest area in your home as far as home security is concerned? A thief can usually break into a garage with an automatic garage door opener in under 10 minutes. If your garage is attached to your home, this could mean that a burglar could have access into your home as well. AAA Action Garage Doors is here to talk about some ways that you can boost garage security so you can rest easy at night.
Garage Door Emergency Release Cord
Often, thieves will gain access into a person’s garage using the emergency release handle. All they have to do is snake a hanger under the door and pull it to release the garage door. To fix this problem, you can put a plastic zip tie around a loop as well as the emergency release handle, this will stop anyone from being able to easily get the handle to release the garage door. Some people will remove the handle all together, but you should know that this will also make it more difficult for you to get your garage door open if the need should arise.
Garage Door Window Covers
Much of the time, if someone sees something in your garage that they want, that’s when they will try to get in there to steal it. If you keep them from getting a good look at what you have in your garage, they are less likely to want to break in. You can use window coverings on any windows into your garage or even install window films that leave the windows frosted to keep prying eyes out.
Garage Door Alarm
You can have an alarm installed on your garage door that will work a lot like any of the other alarms that you have installed on other doors in your home and on your windows. If the door moves while the alarm is activated, there will be a loud sound that will blare and scare anyone trying to get in.
Installing Motion Sensor Light Over Garage
If your garage space is kept rather dark, this makes it easier for someone to find a way to get in without anybody seeing them. When you have lights that come on when someone walks past your garage, it will keep the area well-lit and thieves will be less likely to choose your home as a target. This may be an easy fix if you already have lighting wired near your garage doors.
