Remote controls or switches on the garage’s interior wall open and close the majority of older garage doors, but keypads outside also serve as openers. These keyless entry systems require users to input a personal identification number to open and close their garage doors. Browning Garage Doors in Carlsbad, NM, says many modern garage door systems come equipped with keypads, but not all do.
Here are four reasons to consider installing a keypad if your garage door doesn’t already come with one:
1. It Provides Security
If your home has an alarm system, adding a keypad for your garage can be incorporated, so the two systems work together, adding an extra layer of security. No one without the pin number can enter your garage or home. You can also assign guest pin codes for limited use if you ever need a house sitter or have company.
2. It Provides Peace of Mind
Remote controls are great to have in your car, but if you ever lose one or get locked out of your house without your keys or remote control, a keypad entry can help you easily regain access. You can walk your dog or do yard work without remembering your keys.
3. It’s Reliable
Keypads come with a battery backup and can be installed with a surge protector. Remote controls can suddenly stop working due to dead batteries or flaws, making keypads a more reliable way to open and close your garage doors.
4. No Wiring Is Needed
Keypads are easy to install and can be placed anywhere within range of your garage door’s sensors. No extensive wiring is needed.
