6 handy reasons to install keyless entry for your garage door

Do you own a keyless car and enjoy the convenience it brings? Just like your car, your garage door opening system can go keyless too, and it comes with its own distinct advantages.

A keyless and wireless entry garage door features a small entry keypad that operates the door via a secure pin number, negating the need to carry separate keys. It can also serve as a handy back up to your external garage door remote. 

So, what are the benefits of having a keyless entry garage door?

1. You’ll never get locked out

You’ll never have to worry about losing or forgetting your keys or remote again! Since there’s no need to carry anything, you can go walk the dog or go for a run without having to carry anything on you. You can easily gain access to your house with the keypad entry. 

When you’re driving into your garage you tend to use the remote, but what if you lost it? Or gave it to another family member? Having keypad entry will ensure you can still get in.

2. Security

Your garage door keypad can add an extra layer of security to your property. If you have a home alarm system, the garage door entry can be integrated, making it even harder for thieves to break in. 

Another benefit is you can change the security pin code whenever you like. Some entry systems also let you create temporary pin numbers, so if a tradesperson needs to enter your house when you’re not there, if you’re going on holiday and have a house sitter, or if you have a babysitter looking after the kids, you can assign them a temporary entry code instead.

3. Multiple access

Having a keyless entry garage door means anyone in your family can come and go as they please. There’s no need to have multiple remotes or keys created, waiting around for someone to get home, or be home to get let in.  

4. No wiring is needed

Entry keypads are easy to install as no wiring is needed. They can be placed anywhere within range of your garage door’s sensors. It works by sending the information to the motor and when the correct pin number is entered, the door opens.

5. More reliable

Garage door keypads come with a battery backup and can also be installed with a surge protector. How many times has your remote control stopped working due to a dead battery? Keypads are therefore a more reliable way to operate your garage door.

6. Convenience

Quite simply, having wireless, keyless entry for your garage door is convenient. You do away with carrying an extra set of keys or a remote every time you leave the house, and you won’t run the risk of losing them (although you could still forget the pin code for your garage door)!
