Get rid of your garage door remote today! Go out to your car, grab it off of your visor, and throw it in the garbage! And I’m going to tell you why. As a society we have become extremely reliant on our garage door openers. Most of us are now using our garage doors as our main entry way into our homes. All we have to do is push the garage door remote, and just like that, the garage door opens and we drive right in. But it’s this same luxury that is now being used against us by criminals. The new trend in crimes isn’t to steal your car, it’s to steal your garage door remote. And why is this? Because that’s all someone needs to enter your home quietly unannounced.

There was a time when the safety of a garage door remote was never questioned. Those times have passed. We live in a world where we must exercise caution in every aspect of our lives. Your garage door is no different. It is the largest opening to your home. And often times, it’s the least secure.

Where do you keep your garage remote? If you’re like most people, it’s sitting in your car, clipped to your visor. If someone breaks into your car while you’re out shopping or out to dinner, they can take your garage door remote and find your address off of your registration. Now they know where you live and have easy access. All they have to do is drive up, push a button, and just like that, they’re in. And since there’s no commotion, chances are your neighbors are none the wiser. Even if your car has a preprogrammed button, thieves can still gain access to your home. It’s a lot easier for someone to break into your car and use your garage door remote against you than you may realize. Look at these articles, all within one month’s time, from different cities. This should show you how rampant this crime has become today.
