Is it time for you to switch to an automatic garage door?
Our range of automatic garage doors include an optional holiday mode which blocks any attempt to open your garage door with a remote control whilst you’re away. Whilst the holiday mode is engaged, the door can only be operated with a specific code on the door keypad.
You can also opt for an automatic garage door with a rolling frequency opener that constantly changes, meaning your door isn’t left vulnerable to hacking. The good news for you if you’re in the market for a new garage door is that all of the latest systems we supply feature rolling code technology.
Automated garage doors also give you the option to enable a temporary guest keypad code too. This removes the need to constantly change your garage door code to maintain security. Instead, you can set a guest code every time a visitor requires entry to your garage (with your permission of course), whenever you’re away from home.
