Wireless keyless entry

Wayne Dalton offers several different devices that will allow you to gain entry to your garage without using a key or transmitting a signal someone else could hijack. Their Wireless Keyless Multi Code Entry Pad is mounted on your home’s exterior next to the garage door. It can be programmed with more than 10,000 codes for ultimate security. When you arrive just punch your current code into the keypad and the door opens. The unit is entirely battery powered so there’s no wiring to do and the screen is well backlit for easy use at any time of the day or night.

Wind Load Reinforcements

It’s long been established that during hurricanes and other extreme wind events damage begins in earnest the moment the garage door is compromised. The wind itself can take out an older door that has been poorly maintained and lost much of its structural integrity. In the case of newer doors wind borne debris can start the process of breakdown by shattering windows, deforming panels or even knocking the door from its tracks if the debris is large enough. If you live in an area prone to high wind events you can opt to have wind load rated reinforcements installed on your Wayne Dalton garage door that will help ensure your door stays in place no matter what Mother Nature may throw at it.

Laser Parking Beam Assistants

In the past many a homeowner hung some sort of indicator from the ceiling of the garage that would let them know when they were properly positioned within the garage space so that they could close the door without worrying their car would be struck. Others simply placed a soft barrier in the garage which acted as the same sort of “okay to close the door” positioning system. Once the nose of the car touched the barrier the driver knew they could close the door. Today, however, garage door add-ons are available that allow you to use beams of laser light to establish where you are in the garage and if it’s okay to close the door.

Internet control

Perhaps the ultimate add-on for Wayne Dalton garage doors are third party devices that will allow you to control your door from across town or from halfway around the world while you vacation in India or Bali. These devices are controlled by smartphone apps and give new meaning to the term “remote control”. They’re usually compatible with just about every make of garage door, won’t cost you an arm and a leg and can be installed by any reasonably tech-savvy do it yourselfer.

Remote Control Transmitters

Wayne Dalton garage doors offer a variety of premium remote control transmitters that allow you to program up to 3 different garage door openers along with gate openers and light accessories enabled by MyQ technology. These transmitters are easy to program, feature rolling code technology that practically eliminates that hijacking of opener codes and radio wave interference and are designed to promote easy operation even in the dead of night. Just keep in mind that if your garage door is more than 20 years old there may be compatibility issues.
