The garage door keypad offers plenty of benefits to every homeowner. It means one less thing to carry when you’re walking the dog or out for a jog. Plus, you no longer have to worry about getting locked out if you lose your remote opener or keys. Keypads just make life a little bit easier. Below, the Overhead Door Company of Southeast Missouri has included some helpful tips on garage keypad programming and maintaining the perfect opener for your home.
Know Your Opener
The Overhead Door Company makes a variety of openers to fit the needs of all of our customers. Though all of our products are simple and intuitive, it’s still good to know the ins-and-outs of whatever you decide to go with. At the Overhead Door Company’s corporate site, you can find a list of all of our products along with all the necessary documentation including lists of features, programming instructions, and additional information on opener compatibility and batteries.
Pick a Complicated Password
With all your services, devices, and accounts, you probably have more passwords than you can remember. That doesn’t mean you should punch in four ones and call it a day. Picking a password that someone off the street couldn’t guess with a couple of tries is crucial if you do decide to opt for a keypad. Make sure to include the maximum number of digits your device allows.
Change Your Password Regularly
There’s a reason you get prompted to change your password on a semi-regular basis — it’s safer! The same goes for your garage keypad programming. Switching things up semi-annually not only decreases the chances of some unsavory person figuring out your password, it also prevents you from wearing out the buttons on your keypad and having to replace it faster than would otherwise be necessary.
Have A Backup In Place
You can never have enough options, right? Luckily, the Overhead Door Company offers a backup in case everything else seems to be going wrong. With the OHD Anywhere app, you can control your garage door with your smartphone as well as check when it was opened and closed to make sure you don’t have any uninvited guests while you are out.
