It can be really frustrating to get locked out of your house because you forgot your keys or lost them. This is one of the reasons that you might want to consider installing a keyless entry for your garage door. The team here at 1st Rate Garage Doors is able to install keyless entries. These are the reasons we think you will benefit from a set up like this.
What is a Keyless Entry
A keyless entry is a keypad that is installed on the outside of your garage. It allows you to input a code to open your door. These units are not difficult to program and can be changed as often as you need to.
The Benefits of a Keypad
There are many benefits of installing a keypad on your garage. Here are the top reasons our customers choose this type of system:
● Lock your door while you are out of town- you can put the keypad on lockdown so that no one can get in while you are gone.
● Give your neighbor access- if you need to get your neighbor into the house, you can easily give them the passcode. Some systems allow you to set a temporary passcode.
● Kids don’t have to keep up with a key- for families that have kids coming home from school while parents are at work, a keyless entry is perfect. You can get your kids into the house without worrying about having extra keys made.
● Open the door with your smartphone- newer garage door openers are wi-fi ready and allow you to open the door with your smartphone.
If you want to have one of these units installed, let one of our technicians come out and help you.
How is the Unit Installed?
Having a keypad installed for your garage door is not as difficult as you might think. The keypad is screwed to the door jamb on the outside of the garage. Most houses have wood door jambs so this should not be a problem.
