Tip of the week

• An automatic garage-door opener will enhance the comfort and safety of your home — especially on rainy nights. Contrary to legend, automatic openers can’t be activated by low-flying planes, microwave ovens or transistor radios. On the other hand, a transmitter in the wrong hands could expose your home to entry by uninvited strangers. Transmitters should be treated like house keys. When shopping or parking somewhere other than in your garage, make sure that the transmitter is locked securely in the car or glove compartment. Take care of your transmitter and you’ll experience convenience, safety and security.
