Goodyear, AZ, May 09, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Did you ever get to work and realize you forgot to close the garage door? Or, have you ever been gone and need to let a repairman into your house?
“Garage doors add value to your home, and the new models from Liftmaster® also have security features that you can control remotely,” says Dave Krzyzak, owner of Palm Valley Garage Door in the southwest Valley.
Your internet-ready mobile device or computer connects remotely to the new MyQ® technology via the Liftmaster Internet Gateway to turn your lights off, command your garage door opener or gate operator.
Liftmaster has three new models that have built-in MyQ® technology and any Liftmaster, Sears, Chamberlain or Raynor built after 1998 can be converted to use the new technology. “This technology is especially beneficial for ‘snow birds’ who spend only part of their year in the Valley or people who often travel away from home,” he adds.
The MyQ system can be set up to send alerts via text or email to the homeowner so they know what is happening with their garage door, lights or gate.
In addition to the security features of your garage door, maintaining it in good working condition is very important. “Your garage door is one of the biggest, heaviest, most-used parts of your home so keeping it lubricated and maintained is a critical safety step,” Krzyzak says. “Garage door springs are the most common part to break on your garage door. They’re designed to last for about 10,000 cycles of open and close. If you notice uneven spacing between the coils in your springs, it means they’re worn out and need replacing.”
