The desire to feel safe is always relevant, whether one lives alone or with others. If you spend a lot of time travelling or away from your home for work, it may be left vulnerable. Being the victim of a home intrusion is a traumatising experience whether or not you’re present at the time. Fortunately, there are a host of preventative measures you can take to ensure the safety of you, your family and your home. While some precautions are more obvious than others, modern technologies utilised by Brisbane and Bayside Garage Doors are specifically designed to help keep your home safe.

Locks and Alarms

Perhaps one of the more obvious methods of keeping your home safe is to ensure it is locked properly. Many intruders make their opportunistic entry during the day when people tend to be out of the house. In this case, the quality and strength of the locks on your doors are the main line of defence. With B&D garage doors, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing they lock securely shut. Unlike most other garage doors that don’t actually lock when shut, B&D Auto-Lock offers an advanced automatic locking bolt to keep your home safe. This wireless, heavy-duty locking bolt automatically engages every time the door is closed. When paired with an automatic opener, Auto-Lock more than doubles the force required to lift the closed door, preventing break-ins and securing the property. Don’t forget a smart alarm system, which is another important security measure to deter thieves from targeting your home.

Upgrade Your Garage with an Automatic Garage Door Motor

One of the easiest ways to safeguard your house from unwanted guests is by enhancing the effectiveness of existing garage doors. A B&D garage door motor can be fitted to automate existing manual garage doors. This means that you can enter your garage without having to get out of your car. Plus, all B&D openers are built with auto-reverse so the door will simply stop and reverse if it encounters anything in its path. The anti-tampering design affords you and your family an extra measure of personal security when entering and exiting your home.

Stay Quiet on Social Media

We should be able to share our excitement about an upcoming holiday with online friends, but it is not always the best idea. Unfortunately, it’s not just your real friends that have access to the internet. Ask your friends and neighbours to keep an eye on your house and check your mail for you while you’re away.

Install Automatic Gates and Garage Doors

Installing automatic gates and garage doors is the best combo to dramatically increase the security of your home. Automatic gates protect your home from the outside whilst ensuring additional safety for small children and pets. These gates enhance property protection and blend in seamlessly with our existing or customised garage door options. If you want to combine style and security, choose from sectional garage doors, tilt garage doors, and other specialty options built especially for the Brisbane climate.

Brisbane and Bayside Garage Doors can help you protect your home with hints, tips, sectional garage doors, tilt garage doors, and automatic gates. We can also recommend and install the top B&D security accessories, such as Auto-Lock, safety beams, battery backup and smart phone control. We’d love to get you set up for better home security with a smart garage camera system you can control via phone.
