One of the biggest ways people have started to break into people’s homes is to not break in at all. They are stealing garage door openers from people who’ve left their garage open and the car inside with the door unlocked while they run inside. After they steal the opener they wait until you leave then they use it to just open the garage door and walk in the house. Most people don’t lock the door from their garage into their home so it makes the process that much easier for anyone looking to break in.
So, our biggest piece of advice is to keep all of your doors locked at all times. Even if you are just running back into your house really fast after you forget something you should close the garage door, lock your car door, and lock the door inside the garage. We would also recommend that you you never keep your opener in plain sight in your car. Always put it in the glove box or somewhere hidden. If at all possible get a keychain opener that you can take with you or program the code into your car if it has a sysstem that allows that. Stay safe!
