I like to be able to open the garage from a distance for my own safety. It's a good way to make sure I can get in to the house safely and help prevent home invasions. With the kids I feel much better knowing that no one can sneak into the garage when I'm not looking. I know I'm not the only one who is worried about safety when they are juggling kids, shopping and lots of distractions when you are coming in the house. This blog compares different options for remote openening garage doors in terms of safety, reliabilty and cost.
