Home Safe Home with the touch of your phone
Date Posted:11 March 2020
An open garage door can be an invitation for intruders, yet it’s often overlooked when it comes to home security.
With more than 230,000 home burglaries reported in Australia last year alone, and states such as Victoria reporting a whopping 13.7% surge, it’s never been more important to protect the things that matter most to you.1
B&D, Australia’s leading garage door brand, has released two innovative new products that make it easy to keep your loved ones and valuables safe.
The B&D Smart Phone Control Kit, is a security Smart Hub that allows you to control and monitor your garage door via your smart phone or compatible device* from wherever you are – at home, in the office or even abroad.
* Subject to cellular and Wi-Fi connection and availability.
Left the house and can’t remember if you closed the garage door? Need to open it just a fraction to receive a parcel delivery or let the dog in? Using the B&D app, you can see in an instant whether your garage door is secure, or choose to open or close it as much as you like. It also sends instant notifications to your smart phone whenever the garage door is obstructed or opened for an extended period, giving you peace of mind when you’re away from home. The Smart Phone Control Kit is an available add-on for new rolling and sectional-style garage doors.
The B&D Auto-Lock is another exciting new release in the brand’s line-up. This smart, keyless technology automatically secures your garage door every time you close it with your regular remote control — perfect for those who store valuables in their garage.
The B&D Auto-Lock more than doubles the force required to lift the garage door from a closed position, making it more difficult for unwanted intruders to gain access to your property and possessions.**
It is available to order on all B&D Panelift sectional doors.
“As the largest door in the home, the garage door is a notorious weak spot in home security,” says B&D Marketing Manager, Danny Collins.
“Not only is the garage often used to store some of the most valuable items you own, it can provide easy access to your home’s interior, which puts your loved ones at risk. With home burglaries in some states on the rise, keeping your home secure is more important than ever. Using cutting-edge technology, we’ve created two products that make it easy and convenient to keep the things that are most precious to you safe, even when you’re far from home,” Danny says.

Auto-Lock comes standard on B&D Panelift® Icon™ and is available as an optional extra on B&D Panelift® and StormShield garage doors. Auto-Lock can be installed on existing B&D Panelift® garage doors when coupled with a compatible B&D opener.
