3 Reasons to Get a Genie Opener09/10/2016 Back To Blog
These magical garage door openers and remotes are now available at a wide range prices. The lower priced models will do the basics very well. The more expensive ones will do a whole lot more, and then some. If you're tired of having to lift a heavy, dirty and noisy garage door morning and night, you'll think a genie is god's gift.
Here we look at the 3 very best reasons to install a genie opener, with explanation for how this elegant upgrade can make a huge difference to your everyday life.
No keys, no chains, no hassle
The number one reason is of course taking that huge leap from manual, to the bliss of automation. No more getting caught in the rain, no more chunky keys, rusty chains or padlocks. Just a palm sized control pad and all the freedom to activate the door from a distance.
Security and safety
You may have lost count of how many times your manual door was an inconvenience. On top of this there is always the added danger that a child or less able person will have it collapse on them while trying to operate it. With a proper opener there are no such risks as they come with safety sensors that make sure the door will reverse the second they detect any movement near the closing door.
It’s also a lot harder to break into a garage door that has no handle, key hole, padlock or chain, than a manual one that does. If a genie door is broken into, it's usually just a case of a garage door company having to replace the handset or any small missing parts, as opposed to potentially having to replace the entire door on a manual that has been forced open.
With a genie garage door opener, even if having to push a button every day becomes too much, you can always instruct the opener to function at certain times. The higher end genie’s comes with sophisticated operating systems that can be linked with the automation programs in your house. Your door can be made into a reactive entity that works around your daily routine. Bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase, “being there to welcome you home”.
