garage door security



  • While on vacation or away from home for extended periods of time, unplug the garage door opener unit or use a vacation lock on the wall console switch, which is an optional accessory on Overhead Door® garage door openers.


  • Consider purchasing a garage door opener with rolling code technology, which changes the access codes each time the transmitter is used to prevent code grabbing. Overhead Door’s CodeDodger® has been incorporated as a standard feature into our full line of openers since 1995.


  • Wireless keypads, which activate the garage door opener with a personal identification number (PIN), are available for Overhead Door® garage door openers. This allows family members to open the door without the use of a key or remote. Never disclose the PIN or leave it written down. 


  • Never leave the remote control in the car or with a parking attendant. It should be treated like a house key.


  • Always lock the door from the garage to the inside of your home for greater safety and security.


  • Check to make sure your garage door is closed when you lock your entry doors at night.
