Why choose to have an automated door?
Having a automated garage sectional door offers several practical advantages that can enhance convenience, security, and overall functionality. Here are some reasons why you might consider automating your garage sectional door:
- Convenience: The primary reason for automating a garage door is the convenience it provides. With a garage door opener, you can open and close the door with the press of a button, eliminating the need to manually lift and lower the door. This is especially beneficial during inclement weather or when you're in a hurry.
- Ease of Use: Garage door openers are designed for ease of use, making it simple for anyone in the household to operate the door, including children and elderly individuals.
- Security: Modern garage door motors come with advanced security features. Rolling code technology generates a new code each time the door is operated, reducing the risk of unauthorised access.
- Safety: Garage door operators include safety features such as sensors that detect obstacles in the door's path. If an object or person is detected while the door is closing after light pressure is applied, it will automatically reverse direction to prevent accidents.
- Remote Control: Garage door motors come with 2 remote controls as standard that can be kept in your car or carried with you. This eliminates the need to exit your vehicle to open or close the garage door, which can be particularly useful during rainy or snowy weather. More can be added.
- Improved Security Monitoring: Some garage door opener models allow you to monitor the status of your garage door remotely. This can be especially helpful if you're concerned about whether you left the door open after leaving home.
- Child Safety: If you have children, an automated garage door can provide an extra layer of safety by reducing the risk of them trying to manually operate a heavy garage door.
- Longevity: Automating your garage door can potentially extend its lifespan. Manual operation can put stress on the door's components over time, leading to wear and tear. With an opener, the door is operated smoothly and evenly, reducing the strain on its parts.
- Home Value: A modern automated garage door can add to the overall value and appeal of your home, which can be beneficial if you ever decide to sell.
