All you want to know about garage doors in one place
What do automatic openers offer?
Electric openers provide easy access in and out of the garage on a daily basis. Though, their biggest asset is related to your safety. According to Garage Door Repair DeSoto modern openers embody a reverse mechanism, which is activated by the sensors if an obstacle keeps the door from closing down. The latest products work also with battery when the power is out.
What do I do when the hinges and brackets are loose?
It is one of the simplest jobs, yet so important. You just need to tighten the screws good, but not too tight. Sometimes, small problems such as these may block the system because these parts keep tracks, cables and other parts steady.
How do I realign door sensors?
If the garage door sensors are not aligned then they will not work properly. The easiest way to do it is to move the sensors slightly so that they fall into their position and face each other. Now the lights should not blink as they do earlier and you should be able to see solid lights.
Can anyone open my garage door with an automatic remote?
No. Each garage door opener comes with a set of remotes that should be uniquely programmed to open that one opener alone. It is possible for you to experience transmission interference from surrounding devices, but this is rare and can be easily fixed by an expert.
Can someone else's remote control open my garage door?
Not if you take reasonable precautions. Always change the default access codes on the opener and remote control to prevent someone else's remote from operating your door. If your opener is fairly new, it should use rolling-codes, that change your access code every time you use the, preventing it from accidentally being opened by someone else. Give our technicians a call and we'll go over everything you can do to protect your door from being opened by someone else.
