If you have a garage where you keep your car, bike or items of worth then you need to think carefully about security. This is also true for those who have a garage door that is attached to their home as easy access to the garage may mean easy access to your home.
You need to think about the security of your garage door. There are a number of companies that specialise in high-security garage doors that can only be opened with a code or special fob and that have a secondary locking system that can only be accessed from the inside.
Having a security camera mounted above your garage can be a deterrent to stop the break-in happening in the first place or may provide vital evidence if someone is successful in accessing your garage. It is very tempting to keep your garage door opening device fob in the car but ideally, it should be kept in your house, especially overnight.
If people can see if to your garage then they are much more likely to be enticed to break in. Always ensure any glass is kept to a minimum and that it is frosted to prevent unwanted spying eyes.
