Why Every Garage Door Needs A Remote Control

Do you want to be able to open your garage door remotely? Do you want to minimize the risk of leaving your garage open when you are not at home? The solution is simple, use an automatic remote control system for your door. 

With so many different types of remotes on the market today, choosing which one would suit your home or business can be difficult. That’s why Prolift Garage Doors offer consultations where we can discuss what type of remote would work best for you and your family or employees. Our team has years of experience working with all kinds of remotes and will help guide you through this process up to installation so that you end up with precisely what you need.

Garage Door Remote Control

With the advancement of technology in communication and automobiles, the demand for remote control options for garage doors increases. The said option can be divided into two categories, namely fixed code or rolling code. 

Fixed Code And Rolling Code

A fixed code is the old type of remote control that works only with a few codes or combinations, and it can be easily copied. The rolling code remote control is the new type that works with a series of codes that change every time you use it. For this reason, it cannot be duplicated or hacked into using simple tools and techniques.

Rolling code can be further divided into the dip switch type and the computer chip type. The former can offer more security while the latter is easier to program. But in terms of convenience, the former far outweighs it.

Why Switch To Remote Control Option?

So, why do you need a remote control option for your garage door? Here are some of the reasons:


A remote control option allows you to have more convenience, especially if you own a busy car repair shop or a parking lot in your place of residence. You no longer have to get out of your car or truck at all because you can access your garage door from a far distance. This also provides safety if the garage is attached to one’s home since there will be no need for children or pets to go near it when it opens up.


Having a remote control option for your garage door is also beneficial from a security point of view. You don’t have to worry about an intruder reaching the backside of your garage and trying to open it up. Furthermore, you can also provide additional keyless entry points to many rooms in your house if you install more than one radio receiver.

With the marvels of technology these days, garage door remotes are no longer considered unnecessary luxuries but highly sought-after items. Not only do they make your life easier; it also makes it more secure and probably saves you from getting up those extra few times in the morning or perhaps late at night to open the garage door for yourself as well as for your visitors.
