Why Installing a Garage Door Opener Keypad Could Be a Great Idea

If you decide to go ahead and install a new garage door opener keypad after reading today’s blog post, you can look forward to enjoying all of the following benefits:

  • Convenient Emergency Entrance for Your Home – If you have an integral garage, you can use your garage door, with a keypad opener, as an emergency entrance. The next time you misplace your house keys or perhaps break one in the lock while trying to open your front door, there will be no reason to panic. All you will have to do is walk over to your garage door, punch in the code you have set and you’re in! No need to worry about how long the local locksmith will take to arrive or how much he or she is likely to charge to help you get back into your home.
  • Key-Free Entry for Teenage Children – If your children are at that awkward age, when they need to be able to enter and leave your home on their own but are still not responsible enough to be trusted with their own set of house keys, a keypad entry system for your garage door installation could be the solution you have been searching for. As long as they can remember the code, they will be able to get in and out of your home when you’re not there, without you having to worry about keys getting lost or, worse still, being left in the front door.
  • Eliminate Bulky Pockets When Walking or Jogging Near Your Home – If you like to jog or walk near your home, you will already know how annoying a heavy set of keys in your jogging pants can be and a garage door remote would be even worse. Get yourself a new door opener keypad and you can enjoy exercising in your neighborhood without the hassle of having to take your house keys with you.
  • No Hunting for Spare Batteries – If you have ever found yourself unable to open your garage door because the batteries in the remote have gone flat, you will know just how frustrating an experience it can be. And if you are anything like the rest of us, it will always be at such times that you discover your stock of spare batteries has run out too. With a keypad opener as an alternative method of entry, you will never have to frantically hunt for spare batteries again.
  • East Way to Grant People Temporary Access to Your Garage – If you are waiting for an important delivery and you would rather not have a valuable parcel left outside your home all day, you can set a temporary code on your keypad opener and give it to the courier company. You can also use temporary keypad codes to enable garage door repair teams to come and fix your door while you are not at home. And if you leave the door from your garage to the main area of your home unlocked, you can use a keypad opener to grant temporary access to maintenance workers who are coming to fix your air conditioning, furnace, kitchen appliances, or anything else that just happens to go wrong at an awkward time.
  • Separate Entry for Lodgers – If you decide to rent out a room in your home and you don’t want to have to worry about lodgers making unauthorized copies of your house keys, you can use a keypad opener to grant them access instead. Whenever a contract finishes and a lodger moves out, all you have to do is change the entry code and your home will be secure once more.
