There are so many advantages in automating your garage door.

Let’s face it, there aren’t too many more irritating things than getting out of your car in the pouring rain or freezing cold to manually open or close your garage door.

When you have an automated garage door, just the press of one button from inside or outside your car opens or closes it.  Never suffer the harsh elements again!!!

Another major advantage of automating your garage door involves security.  All automatic operators have an automatic locking feature which engages when the door is fully closed.  Therefore you don’t need to turn a key or ensure anything is latched because if an automated door is closed, it’s locked.  It’s safe, secure and as simple as that! Of course, if there’s a power failure, all automated operators have a simple manual release feature to allow the door to be easily opened.

Have you ever driven home one night and after frustratingly opening your garage door manually, switched off your lights and engine only to stumble around in the dark trying to find a light switch? Yes, it’s so frustrating! But you’ll never have to endure this again if you automate your garage door because almost all operators possess a courtesy light which switches on and remains on for several minutes when the operator is activated.

A host of accessories are available with your automatic operator which enhances the convenience moreover.  Consider for example the installation of a numeric wireless keypad on an outside wall near your garage door.  Code in your pin and you can safely and securely operate your door from outside at anytime which is perfect if you’ve locked yourself outside the house or you want to give a family member or friend access to your garage without having to give them a physical hand transmitter.

If you park two cars in your garage, no sweat because most automatic operators come with at least two hand transmitters and one wall mounted remote so everyone can enjoy the convenience of pushing a button to operate the garage door. Of course, if you have more cars, additional hand transmitters can be purchased separately.

Most standard garage doors can be automated from just a few hundred dollars which includes a couple of hours of installation time by a qualified technician.  So enjoy the benefits of convenience, security and not to mention adding value to your property by automating your garage door.
