Other technology on garage doors
Aside from door openers, there are other technologies that you may consider getting. One is the door sensor. This provides extra security as it prevents damage to the property and injuries to people. When something or someone is detected by the sensor beneath the door, it will retract automatically preventing the door from hitting the person or object.
