Forget the old days of lifting the heavy garage door in the rain, wind or snow. While even 30 years ago that seemed a necessity, today the necessity is for a good and reliable automatic garage door opener and homeowners often put Liftmaster garage door openers at the top of their shopping list.
Liftmaster garage door openers are considered tops in quality and value, thanks to the company’s large market share. Sales have increased more than 40% in the last 10 years, largely due to the company’s increased advertising on radio and TV.
One of the reasons automatic garage door openers have increased in popularity in recent years is concerns for personal safety. Convenience is one factor, but many believe personal safety concerns and home security are what made automatic garage door openers popular and what lead many people to install them at their older homes. Thanks to many advances in technology, Liftmaster garage door openers offer features that enhance the feeling of personal safety.
One of these newer features is the rolling code that’s created each time the remote is used. Since many burglars are tapping into garage door opener codes to break into peoples’ homes, Liftmaster garage door opener remotes roll over to a new code, out of a possible 100 billion, each time the remote is used. That way, even if a burglar did pick up the code when the remote was used, it won’t work the next time that code is used.
The Protector System beam on the Liftmaster garage door openers allow the light in the garage to stay on for a full 4 ½ minutes, giving you time to take the groceries in the house or get a tool needed for a household job, all before the light turns off.
Liftmaster garage door openers are also equipped with an infrared beam along the garage door bottom that will stop the progress of the garage door if it’s headed downward and something is in the way. Children, pets and bikes are spared the weight of the garage door. The door will remain up until the object in the path of the infrared beam is removed.
