"We’ve all seen it, and most of us are guilty of it ourselves -- leaving the garage door wide open -- sometimes for hours and all too frequently overnight."
Littleton, CO (PRWEB) May 25, 2010
On any given day or night people can drive around their neighborhood and find open garage doors where it is obvious that no one is home or everyone is sleeping peacefully unaware. Burglars know this too! "We’ve all seen it, and most of us are guilty of it ourselves -- leaving the garage door wide open -- sometimes for hours and all too frequently overnight", says Bill Dierking of Innovative Home Systems. GarageHawk can increase homeowner peace of mind by knowing when their garage door is open as well as providing the ability to close it remotely from anywhere in the home. GarageHawk is also expandable to allow additional capabilities such as internet-enabled monitoring and control, path lighting, and audible alerts.
GarageHawk is unique in that it not only lets the owner know that the garage door is open, it also allows easy closure by pushing a button without going to the garage to hit the garage door opener button. And unlike some garage door closers it doesn't operate on a timer to close the garage door (risking being locked out of the garage!). Instead, it allows the owner to close the garage door whenever they decide to close it and from wherever they choose in the home.
Summer is just around the corner and that means a lot of activity such as yard work, entertaining, kids playing outdoors, riding bikes, etc. This often results in the garage door being opened and closed numerous times each day, making it easy to forget whether it's open or closed. In many communities law enforcement officers routinely patrol and often contact the homeowner to advise them to keep all unattended garage doors closed.
Additionally, in many areas garages are routinely invaded by wildlife. Stray dogs, cats, rats, mice, snakes, raccoons and even bears search out shelter, garbage cans containing food, or items such as pet food that are commonly stored in the garage. Most residents also use their garage for storage of many high-value items in addition to their automobiles, motorcycles, boats, jet skis, etc. And if the garage is attached to the house an open garage door can add to the load on heating and air conditioning systems and increase drafts in winter. Don't waste energy and risk the family's safety. The best advice is to always keep garage doors closed when not in use.
GarageHawk was designed as an affordable and easily installed system specifically for people who, like most, occasionally forget to close their garage door. When properly installed, the device will never open a door that is already closed and does not interfere with normal garage door opener operation or safety features. It requires no batteries and can be easily installed by anyone using only a screwdriver. Additional modules can also be purchased to allow remote closure of any number of additional garage doors.
