Garage door accessories can make your home safer and your life easier. You can tailor your door so that it fits your lifestyle and security needs with the right accessories. Here are some of the most useful garage door accessories.
Remote Control Garage Door Opener
Let’s start with the most obvious accessory, the remote control opener. Almost every homeowner has one, usually in the standard two-button module, but there are other options. Smaller, keychain-sized openers are available for people who do not want to leave their remote control openers in their cars.
Exterior Garage Door Opener
With a wireless exterior keypad, you no longer have to worry about your children losing their keys, or leaving doors unlocked. In the event you lose your own house key, the keypad will come in handy as a backup. The keypad is also useful if you want to spend time outside, while keeping your home locked. The Overhead Door™ Digital Wireless Keypad provides secure door entry for up to three garage doors.
Laser Parking System
Most modern garage door systems included a laser parking system, also known as the reverse mechanism. This system reverses a closing door when an object passes through an infrared beam. Some models not only make sure you are far enough into your garage, they also help you park in the ideal position. Instead of hanging a ball from the ceiling, these sophisticated parking systems help optimize your garage space.
Garage Door Monitor
If you are a forgetful person, a garage door monitor may help ease your worrying. With Overhead Door™’s Anywhere™ app you can monitor up to four doors from your smartphone, and will receive alerts when a door has been left open. You can also open the door for a friend, cleaning service, or delivery person with the touch of a button, and without giving away a key or passcode.
Battery Backup System
Like the garage door monitor, the battery backup system offers peace of mind when it comes to the safety and security of your home. Whether it’s during inclement weather, or during a power outage, the backup system will be there for you when everything else goes wrong. Modern garage doors can be difficult to lift manually; having a backup battery will ensure your car does not get trapped in the garage when you need to be on the move. Overhead Door™’s Battery Back-up, powered by Interstate Batteries®, will run up to 50 cycles in a 24-hour period after initial power outage.
