Automatic garage doors have come a long way since their inception. At first, they were the playthings for the rich, then they became more affordable as well as more sophisticated. At first, the novelty of a garage door sliding up and out of the way to permit a car to enter was deemed the height of innovation. However, once a system of having the door do so without any manual effort there was no turning back.
Over the years the doors have become not only less expensive but less noisy as well. One of the biggest innovations has been in the way the automatic opening feature worked. At first, automatic garage doors opened by a button inside the garage or by a key pad mounted on a posted near the end of the driveway. Wireless technology allowed for the remote controlled automatic garage door. As these became more popular, a problem arose as one person opening their own garage door often inadvertently triggered one or more of his neighbor’s garage doors to open as well. This problem was soon solved and several innovations later, a rolling code enables a homeowner to know that not only will they open only their own garage door and no one else’s but that their garage is safe from thieves.
