In keeping along the line of safety in the month of June (as we should do always), there are other aspects to consider as well when it comes to safety and security in the garage. Thankfully Overhead Door products have certain safety and security features included, so you, as the homeowner, do not need to worry and can enjoy peace of mind when it comes to safety and security in the garage.
One of the most important safety and security measures to consider in your garage is the lighting. Nothing can be more dangerous than entering a dark or poorly lit garage. Overhead Door electric openers feature a lighting system that is activated upon opening your garage door and then turns off automatically after a set amount of time, thus allowing safe entry into the home, as well as acting as a deterrent to thieves. Some of our openers, like the popular Destiny model, also include a motion detection system so that the light turns on automatically for you upon entering the garage, once again keeping you safe and secure.
Additionally, if your power goes out, Overhead Door also offers a battery back-up unit to keep your garage door functioning during the power outage. This system will provide 50 cycles of usage during a 24 hour period after the initial power outage, provided the system has been fully charged. This feature is very handy, especially for those who may not be able to pull the emergency release cord on the garage door, or those who have a door that is too heavy to lift manually.
One feature you will find standard with all Overhead Door opener systems is the Safe-T-Beam system, also known as the photo eyes, which are mounted toward the bottom of the garage door on either side, sending across an infrared beam that will stop and reverse the door whenever an object passes through that beam. Anyone with small children or pets certainly appreciates the peace of mind that this system provides.
And peace of mind is always achieved with the knowledge that our Overhead door openers operate on CodeDodger technology which prevents piracy of the radio signal that opens your garage door. This technology chooses a code from billions of combinations and keeps it encrypted for security every time you open your garage door. Who wouldn’t want that safety and security?
Please call or visit us at any one of our three locations in Preston, Brooklyn, or Tolland to learn more about these safety and security features that Overhead Door provides, as well as learning about any of our other products. We look forward to being able to provide you and your family with the peace of mind that is found with our quality products.
