If you are using an outdated garage door opener, your home may not be as secure as you think. Were you aware that professional burglars have learned how to foil some older models of garage door openers to spoof radio signals and walk right into homes? However, garage door openers have seen impressive new innovations in recent years, improving technology, functionality, and security.
For example, some of the newer models of garage door openers include advanced security features to ensure that only the authorized garage door opener holder can access them. They use custom signals that change regularly so that they remain synched with the authorized owner.
This makes it so that your home garage door can be more secure than many commercial and governmental buildings – as long as you have one of these more modern garage door openers.

- Keyless and automated entry systems
