Garage Door Vacation Lock & Other Advanced Security Features

Are you traveling for the holidays? Whether you’re celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or any other holiday, December is a huge travel month for many families. The security of your home is the last thing you want to worry about.

If you live in southwestern Ohio, Overhead Door Co. of Greater Cincinnati™ offers many garage doors with advanced safety and security features. But there are also solutions for those who want even more peace of mind when away from home!

Advanced Garage Door Security

Overhead Door provides advanced safety and security for garage doors that are perfect for a vacation or extended periods of travel.

Vacation Lock

Overhead Door’s garage door Vacation Lock is extremely convenient. It is a special feature on certain openers and wall consoles, and it includes Sure-Lock™ technology. The Vacation Lock disables remote transmitters and wireless keypad operation when activated, so the garage cannot be opened remotely while the lock is in effect.

Advanced Wall Console

This feature provides extra security and is similar to the Vacation Lock. The Advanced Wall Console has Sure-Lock™ technology to disable remote and keypad operation when activated. It operates up to three garage door openers when paired with the Overhead Door Network Adapter (which is sold separately), eliminating the unnecessary clutter of multiple consoles for multiple garage doors.

Battery Back-Up

A backup battery for your garage door can be a good thing to have. You don’t want to come home from vacation and find your garage door can’t open because the power is out! With Overhead Door’s Battery Back-up unit, your door can operate even in a power outage!

Door Report Remote

If you sometimes forget to close your garage door and want that extra sense of security and assurance whenever you leave your house—especially for vacations, business trips and other extended periods—this feature is a great solution for you. The Door Report Remote alerts you (with a red flashing light) if the garage door isn’t closed properly. It beeps and flashes green when the garage door has successfully closed.

Additional Tips

If you’re leaving your home for an extended period of time, you may want to:

  • Leave the remote control inside the house rather than inside a car you aren’t taking
  • Unplug the garage door opener unit (if you aren’t using the Vacation Lock)
  • Take care of any repairs beforehand so your garage door isn’t as vulnerable
