Protecting Your Garage Door From Hackers

  • There can be no disputing the fact that garage
    doors have improved in leaps and bounds over the
    decades, and they are now more attractive, robust
    and secure than ever before. With a wide range of
    styles, colours and materials to choose from,
    selecting a new garage door that will compliment
    your home while keeping you safe, has never been
    more exciting, and many homeowners are opting to
    upgrade their garage doors.
  • However, while most modern garage doors now have
    electronic or digital locking systems to help
    improve security, they can still be vulnerable to
    some criminals, particularly those who use
    hacking techniques. Criminals may get a hold of
    your digital code or know how to manually release
    the door from the opener.

  • Heres how hackers can gain unlawful access to
    your garage, and how you can prevent that from
    happening
  • Hackers and your digital security system
  • If your garage door has an old digital security
    system, then you may be vulnerable to hackers who
    can steal your single fixed digital code, and
    simply enter your garage, and then your home.
    New, more modern systems use a rolling or hopping
    code, which is passed between the opener and its
    corresponding remote and is altered each time you
    click the button. Because the code changes each
    time the door is opened and closed, hackers are
    not able to intercept it and use it to trespass.

  • In some cases, sophisticated hackers block the
    garage door from opening just as the code is
    being transmitted and record it. Then, at the
    second attempt, a new code is sent, and the
    garage door opens. The criminal now has an old
    code that was generated but not used to
    completion, and unfortunately, some older garage
    door security systems might still enable this
    code to work.
  • Upgrading your security system
  • This is the simplest and most effective way of
    ensuring that even the most sophisticated of
    criminals cannot gain access to your garage or
    home. With a rolling code system, not only are
    the codes generated randomly each time the opener
    is used, but they are encrypted, making it even
    tougher for criminals to hack their way into the
    system.

  • This extra layer of security is vital and will
    give you the peace of mind that every homeowner
    is looking for.
  • Garage door repairs
  • While its important to have the newest digital
    system for your garage door, its also important
    to ensure that your door cant be physically
    broken into, so get any repairs fixed as quickly
    as possible, and have your door and its
    mechanical components serviced at least every
    couple of years.
  • Garage door installation has become a much
    quicker process over the years, and so if you do
    need to get your garage door replaced, it can be
    done hassle-free.

  • If you would like to upgrade to a newer, more
    modern digital system, to help keep you and your
    family safe from harm, talk to your local garage
    door installation professional, who can run you
    through the options with you.
