Take a moment to think about all the valuables that are stored in your garage. Do you ever leave home and forget to close your garage door behind you? Or wake up in the morning and realize that it’s been open all night?
Always know when your garage door is open with the IQ Tilt-S. It’s a simple, encrypted device that tells your panel whether the overhead garage door is open or closed. Since your panel is connected to your alarm.com account, you’ll be able to see the current status of your garage door at any time from your mobile device or computer.
Check Your Garage Door Status from Anywhere
With the IQ Tilt-S, you will be able to check the status of your garage door from anywhere, at any time, by using your phone or computer. This is extremely helpful, especially if you are out of town and are having to leave your home unattended for an extended period of time.
Alongside using the IQ Tilt-S, here are some other ways you can help protect your garage from burglars looking to get their hands on your valuables.
- Install a motion-activated light – many burglars like the cover of night and rely on the dark shadows surrounding your garage to hide. Installing motion-activated floodlights near your garage windows and doors will make burglars think twice before attempting a late-night break-in.
- Check your landscaping – While many burglars opt for the darkness of night to make their attempts, some of the braver ones will try to break into your garage in the middle of the day. Clearing away large trees or shrubs from garage doors and windows will help provide a direct sightline and will help deter burglars from making any mid-day attempts.
- Keep your valuables out of sight – Some burglars will take the time to scope out your garage before they attempt a break-in, so consciously hiding your more valuable items can be a huge benefit in deterring burglars. Installing interior curtains or blinds are also a great option if you still want to be able to let light in and keep your items hidden from sight.
Overall, the IQ Tilt-S is a great way to enhance your garage security and help protect your personal belongings.
