Long gone are the days when you could leave your front door unlocked all day. Unfortunately, in the current state of the world, security is more important than ever to protect you and your loved ones.
You worked hard to purchase a home, and provide all your family could possibly need and now it is time to take the steps to have peace of mind and ensure that all you have worked hard for is protected.
You may have thought of all the obvious places to protect your home: security cameras, window and door sensors, and safes – but have you considered what a residential garage door control system can do for you? Here are some ways that you can better use your garage door as a vital part of your home security system:
Set a Schedule
You can secure your home by setting up a schedule to close your garage door and turn off your lights at a set time every night with SEi Security. Another option is to program your garage door to close if it’s been open for over a certain amount of time. This can provide assurance that the garage door is closed every night without having to get out of bed when you have that late night realization that you forgot!
Have you ever driven away in a hurry and forget to close the garage? With the SEI smart garage automation system, there are two options that have your back if this happens:
- You can program your garage to automatically close any time you are away from your home.
- You can program your smart garage system from SEi with a Geofence which will close your garage when you exit the geofence (a Geofence is a geographic boundary, which enables a trigger when you car or garage door opener leaves a particular area).
With the smart garage automation system from SEi Security, you can access your garage remotely to open and close whenever you need to. Whether you need to let a plumber in your home, let a neighbor in to borrow a tool, or for a delivery to be placed in the garage instead of on your porch – you can open and close your garage door from anywhere. Our smart garage automation provides you with the ability to operate your garage door remotely from anywhere through the app on your smartphone.
Z-Wave Garage Door Controller
If you own a Z-Wave Garage Door Controller or have ever been interested in purchasing one, the SEi security system can link with it to work together in protecting your home.
If you are unfamiliar, a Z-Wave Garage Door Controller can emit audio and visual alerts to warn people nearby when the garage door is about to open or close. It can work with your SEi Security system to send status updates on when the garage door is closed, open, or moving.
Keeping your home secure and your family safe can feel like a full time job, but by utilizing the smart garage system you are able to spend more time enjoying your family.
