The Garage Door Lock

The Story

Why did we get into this business in the first place?

“The Garage Door Lock” was conceived because the inventor was the victim of a Garage Door Break-in in Rancho Bernardo, California. There was a condominium development that had its garage units separate from the residences.  This meant there were about 250 garage units in standalone buildings.  The garages were divided into groups of seven by chain link fences that were 6 feet tall.  A garage door break-in occurred and burglarized all seven garage units at the same time. Now the inventor was a crime victim. He found out from law enforcement how easy it was to break into a garage.  The burglar was never found.  All of the stolen personal property from the seven garages was never recovered. That’s when the inventor realized that garage door openers were not created to protect garages and secure the property.  Garage door openers do exactly what they say. They open and close garages.

The Story Update

Its had been a long time coming but the new and updated Garage Door Lock is available. The prototype development, app creation and production was done by Tri-Tech Technologies.  All of this was accomplished during COVID and the process was very long.  When scientists cannot work in teams but individually at home, the timeline is expanded. All of the new bells and whistles were complex.  Presently, we are a women owned business and ready to assist.

Garage by Pass Technique

Studies done on home security on the topic of garage door break-ins identifies the following awareness that there is a weak point in the garage door opener.  The way to exploit that weakness is called the Garage By Pass Technique.

This weakness is a welcome target for home burglars, intruders or trespassers.

To the person walking or driving by, a vehicle in the drive way in front of the garage door doesn’t look out of place or scream home invasion.

Securing your garage door is a conversation less about the quality of the materials than the vulnerability of the entrance point through the garage door.

Any easy entrance to a home through the garage is like laying out a welcome mat to uninvited visitors.

Over 1.9 million viewers have seen the UTube video that shows exactly how to break in through the garage door in seconds (the garage by pass technique).

Whether an afternoon shopping trip, a weekend or an extended stay, security studies suggest that almost 70% of all home trespassers gain access to your home thorough the connecting door to your house from the garage door.

The garage door is a perfect entry point for trespassers and upon entry allows for plenty of quiet time to break into the home.

Unobserved and uninterrupted.

If you happen to have garage door windows that will enable your trespassers to see exactly what they’re doing and where they are going.

Even without windows the task is fairly simple and can be done just on feel and knowing the mid-point of your garage where the release cord is located.

All it takes is a few seconds to get into your home through the garage door.

This garage door safety release mechanism can be tripped from outside of your garage door with nothing more than a coat hanger.

By disengaging the safety release on your door, the door can be rolled up by ordinary.

The intruder could have been in and out prior to law enforcement assistance arriving.

It would be best if you lock the door from the garage to your house every single time you drive out of the garage. But most of us don’t lock the door between the house and the garage during the day as we’re in and out.

If you should be one of those folks that do lock your door, be aware that your intruder will have plenty of time to bypass the door lock to your home without being seen.  Oftentimes that involves using your tools from the garage.

Consider that you will want to prevent entry into your home through your garage door.

Further contemplate that what you require is a mechanism that locks the garage door automatically upon departure when you use your garage opener or an automatic closing of the garage door in case you drove away forgetting to close your garage door.

The garage door lock mechanism completely stops the door from being rolled up.

Last by not least, there is a complementary element of a small red light that notifies trespassers that your garage door is locked for business.

The addition of the garage door lock security will give you peace of mind.
