After once again sharing this security tip on the social app Nextdoor, I realized I should probably share it with all of this email list
Thieves are getting smarter and are now searching for your garage door opener remote when they break into your car that may be parked in the driveway.
What I have done for many years is to use one of the remote controls used for your outdoor Christmas lights. Install that switch in the garage with your garage door opener plugged into it.
Keep that remote control inside your house and get into the habit of turning it off when you get back home or go to bed each night.
