Your next installation of a commercial door could be enhanced by an automated garage door opener. This device is one of the best tools at your disposal to improve your business’s security. Automated door openers allow you to control security at your garage door from near or far, and to know at all times whether the door is open or closed.

Homeowners have embraced Liftmaster’s MyQ technology that allows them to control lights and doors through a smart device. Business owners are likewise discovering automated garage door openers as a security solution that lets them operate doors remotely. These systems also can give the operator a heads up to notify staff when doors have inadvertently been left open. Does the cleaning crew need to get in after hours when there’s no one present, and you’d really rather not drive all the way over to your business to let them in? Your garage door opener equipped with MyQ technology lets you relax at home while the crew gets in and takes care of business.

You can choose from a variety of features to enhance your security system, such as these by Liftmaster:

Internet Gateway

The Internet Gateway allows the user to control MyQ-enabled products – lighting, gate operators and garage door openers – from your smart device, from wherever you happen to be. You can feel more secure knowing you control the main access to your business. Did you leave the garage door open? Close it promptly with an automated garage door opener. You can also receive real-time alerts via text messages or emails when MyQ-connected lights are activated. This product also lets you create schedules to close gates or garage doors, or to turn lights on and off according to a program.

Monitored Dual-Sided Photo Eyes

Photo eyes provide for maximum security with dual-sided, infrared sensors. Accuracy is enhanced with solid sensor lights that indicate when there’s correct alignment, while flexible housings absorb minor jolts and allow the unit to return to its original alignment, so nuisance call-backs are minimized.

Reliable Technology

The Liftmaster door operator line incorporates new security technology with a strong, steady signal so that operators can gain access to their facilities quickly. With a longer range, this technology helps eliminate interference so operators can count on a response when they need one. Plus, with every click, a new code is sent to the door opener, so that it only opens for the operator pressing the remote.
