Garage door opener manufacturer LiftMaster, based in Oak Brook, recently introduced the Automatic Garage Door Lock, an accessory product that makes garage doors virtually impenetrable, according to a release.
The Automatic Garage Door Lock is compatible with LiftMaster’s 8550W Elite Series, 8587W Elite Series and 8360W Premium Series openers and functions like a deadbolt for a front door. The lock engages automatically each time the garage door is closed, sounding with an audible click.
The new lock can be integrated with LiftMaster’s MyQ app, which notifies homeowners when the garage door os left open and allows them to secure and now lock their homes from anywhere.
“For more than 50 years, LiftMaster has engineered cutting-edge products that work together to deliver comprehensive garage security,” John Villanueva, LiftMaster Residential Access Solutions vice president and general manager, said in the release. “Add-on accessories like the Automatic Garage Door Lock reassure homeowners that their garage – a main access point to the home – is safe and secure, whether they’re out running errands, at work or at home putting their children to bed.”
