Enhance Your Home Garage Door Security
In the last 12 months, 4.3% of Australian households experienced either a break-in or attempted break in. A common home entry point burglars and intruders can target is the home garage door. The home garage door is the entry point to your vehicles, personal items and tools as well as your home’s interior – making it a tempting point of access for intruders and burglars.
Ensuring your home garage door has optimal security is vital to protect belongings in your garage and your home.
The last thing you want is to experience a break-in that could have easily been prevented. Read further to discover how you can optimise your home security and stop intruders from intruding.
Keep it closed
You might think this is an obvious point to make but, we’re being serious. If you’ve built trust in your neighbourhood, you might casually leave your garage door unlocked or wide open. We urge you not to do this as it’s at these moments you could be the most vulnerable.
Leaving the garage door open is common when you’re running in and out of the house or you’re completing a chore that’s nearby your garage e.g. mowing the lawn, fixing the car or gardening. However, even if you’re only stepping away from the garage for a moment, it’s important to close your home garage door before you walk away.
If you have an electronic remote to open and close your garage door, make sure to keep this in a safe place at all times. Be careful not to accidentally click the ‘open’ button on your remote as you walk away. Leaving your home garage door open can leave your household open to intruders.

Strong and durable materials
If your home garage door looks flimsy, weak and rusted – burglars and intruders will see your home as an easier target than compared to a home with a strong and durable garage door.
It’s said that thieves look for the home on the street that looks like the ‘easiest’ to break into. Especially if your home is the one that’s isolated from the others, it can make your home more prone to break-ins.
Have a look at your home’s exterior and at your neighbourhood and determine whether your home looks like an easy target. If yes – consider investing in your home garage door.
Having a strong and protective home garage door could be all it takes to deter thieves.
