Is security a big concern to you? If the safety of your home and your family are of great importance to you, chances are you are always on the lookout for the latest security systems that can help you keep your belongings and you and your family safe and sound inside your home.
If you take a stroll down to your local hardware store, you can look around until you will eventually find the smart home aisle where there will be dozens of smart locks for your front door. However, finding a smart lock for your garage might not be that easy, even if -given that this is the biggest entrance to your home– it would make sense to reinforce the security of it.
Thanks to the ever growing Iot technologies and devices and how accessible smart products -amongst other technologies– have become, an automatic garage door lock is not some futuristic gizmo anymore, but in fact, a real product that you can easily acquire at your local hardware store.
An automatic garage door lock offers you and your family the peace of mind of knowing that your car and the things you usually keep in your garage will be safe, not to mention that burglars and strangers won’t have such easy access to your home. Further, an automatic garage door lock is a good ally when it comes to relaxing during your next vacation, knowing that your garage will be just as safe as the rest of your home.
An automatic garage door lock usually consists of a big, automated deadbolt that is installed on your garage door, and although it basically works just like any other garage door lock, you can automate it to lock and unlock, remotely and directly from your laptop, tablet or smartphone app.
Nowadays, any home can be upgraded to be a smart home and you can automate any and every part of your home. From the fridge and the entertainment system to the security and surveillance that keeps your home safe. Although there are many automated garage systems where to choose from, it is always best to seek out the advice of an expert, if you want to make an informed decision that will save you money, time and maybe even, a few unpleasant situations.
Whilst prices vary by dealer, model, design and functionalities, most of these automatic locks cost around $650 once installation is factored in. And although in most cases, the locks are not available as a stand-alone item, if your goal is making your home smarter, a smart lock and security garage system are an investment you will eventually have to make.
