Important Ways to Secure Your Garage for Vacation

For many of us it means summer vacation! Protecting your home from intruders is a crucial step in preparing a time away. Here are three simple steps you can take to protect your car before you go on vacation and your family find it a little comfortable during your vacations.

Fix Garage Door Opener

A good starting point is security inside. Most homeowners do not think about protecting your Amarr Garage Doors, but it is a good idea to protect your home during your vacation! Many garage doors have a “vacation mode” configuration, which disconnects the garage door and prevents the garage door from opening from the outside. If your garage door opener does not have a “holiday mode” setting, there is an alternative to disconnect it. Refer to owner’s manual.

Does it lock the garage door? If so, it is another way to increase the safety of your garage during the holidays. Locks are not necessary if the garage door is operated by an electric opener. If the opener is older, make sure your door can be opened from the outside. If so, installing a lock may be a good idea for additional home security and reassurance. Find a dealer near you to learn more about your options. Remember to disconnect the slot before using the garage opener.

Install moving lights around your garage

Motion lights are a great way to deter intruders. Movement lights detect moving objects within a certain range, and light up for a period of time when an object is detected. Protect the lights in your home and neighborhood because thieves and other intruders are less likely to approach a house with moving lights or a well-lit area. You can also turn off the motion detector settings with many different movement lights above your Amarr Garage Door, so you can use a switch to turn it on and off and give you more flexibility when you are at home.

These tips can help ease your concerns for the safety of your home and make a happy holiday
