How to secure your garage door from burglars

Breaking into the house by picking the garage lock is a common way of forcing entry. Learn how to protect them from thieves! Garage doors install basic locks, but this makes them easy targets for thieves. To prevent break-ins, find out how to properly protect your garage door. In particular, the safety of the most common garage doors in Italy and Europe will be addressed (they are also gaining traction in other countries), namely up and overhead doors or up and over garage doors. How thieves open garage doors Thieves who steal from garages, or who rob the house by breaking into the garage, usually use tools such as sheet metal shears and screwdrivers to force open garage doors. The now widespread technique of cutting the sheet metal on the side of the handle and unlocking the internal mechanism of the overhead door lock is now known all over the world. There are things that the industry does not say: thieves can also unscrew the locking rods of the lock or manipulate the flat key cylinder of very famous brands with the Bulgarian pick. The type of cylinder for the up-and-over lock must be chosen with great care and without skimping. Here’s another weakness of prepackaged, popular, and basic kits. Thieves also sometimes use a sledgehammer to break through the cylinder to the inside, freeing the lock seat. With a few simple tools found in hardware stores, anyone who wants to enter and steal a property can do it. It certainly won’t be a video surveillance camera that will stop thieves, especially when they see easy play with locks. In many condominiums this concept is still not understood. However, some precautions that can be applied to the locking system make the burglary a real nightmare. Understanding the weaknesses on existing products comes the great idea of ​​filing a patent. How to make garage door more secure You should never leave the specification lock on your garage as you found it. After a deed or takeover of a new home, you should immediately change all the locks. It is not enough! Instead of devoting yourself to unnecessarily sophisticated the active part of your alarm system, you should install locks which, in order to be broken into, require the heavy use of very noisy tools, such as electric tools, so that the thief can give up the attempt to break in and leave. A security system that combines different technologies will prevent any unauthorized access to your home and this cannot be done by just an alarm, therefore a single product. The quick and easy picking techniques on commercial garage door locks, even those sold and given for reinforced kits in kits, are different, they should be neglected to produce locks with security features that make them long to pick. How to secure a garage door from the inside Remaining focused on the installation of safety locks, I have to repeat it, this is my job, the deadly mistake made by generalist locksmiths and do-it-yourself fitters and applied to locks for overhead doors is the following. The deadly mistake is that which involves cutting the internal release lever as this type of operation could block the internal mechanism of the overhead lock. Another mistake is to see in a sectorial way how to protect the closure, that is: to display a single solution, the single plate, the defender, 2 or more locking rods, etc. without seeing the context in which the thief can move and attack the uncovered points and integral parts of the lock. Installing a defender and an outer plate leaving the original round cylinder with the specification lock is not a great idea, yet many believe that this is enough. If there is one thing to stay away from in this sector, it is the single-product or simplified solution. Burglary security is complex and you need to learn to embrace complexity.

A Jammer is a device that can be purchased online and is an incredibly effective tool for hacking the opening and closing procedure of residential automations, of many alarms and electronic locks and of motor vehicles.
