Relying solely on your garage door opener and not carrying a key can be risky!
Recently, we have had a rash of calls from customers that have been locked out of their homes because they refuse to carry or hide a key to their home. Below are several reasons why you should carry or hide a key to your home.
Malfunctioning Garage Door Opener: Your garage door opener may malfunction, leaving you unable to open the garage door. If you don't have a key, you could be locked out of your garage and house making you unable to access your car or other belongings.
If there is a power outage, your garage door opener may not work. Again, if you don't have a key, you could be unable to open your garage door. When you replace your old garage door opener, consider one with a battery back-up.
Garage door remotes and keypads typically run on batteries, and if the batteries die, you won't be able to open the garage door. If you don't have a key, you could be stuck outside your garage or home until you can replace the batteries.
If someone gains access to your garage door opener, they could potentially break into your garage and house stealing your belongings. By carrying a key, you can add an extra layer of security to your garage. Always lock the entry door from the garage to the house.
Overall, it's a good idea to carry a key as a backup in case your garage door opener malfunctions or you experience a power outage or battery issue. This will ensure that you can always access your garage and belongings when you need to. It Is much less expensive to hide or carry a key than to call a locksmith.
