OAK BROOK, Ill., Aug. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- LiftMaster®, the number one brand of professionally installed garage door openers and access solutions, introduces the new Automatic Garage Door Lock, the industry's first accessory deadbolt that works in tandem with select new LiftMaster openers. The Automatic Garage Door Lock provides an extra layer of protection for the home's largest door, securing it every time it closes.
More than 70 percent of homeowners use the garage as the main access point to the home, making safety and security a top priority for new and existing residents. Like a deadbolt for your front door, the Automatic Garage Door Lock renders the garage door virtually impenetrable, automatically engaging and disengaging when it opens and closes. An audible click is heard when the lock engages, providing homeowners with the assurance that the garage door is closed and secure. LiftMaster's Automatic Garage Door Lock works with new 8550W Elite Series, 8587W Elite Series and 8360W Premium Series garage door openers.
"For more than 50 years, LiftMaster has engineered cutting-edge products that work together to deliver comprehensive garage security," said John Villanueva, Vice President and General Manager, Residential Access Solutions. "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."
The Automatic Garage Door Lock seamlessly integrates with the LiftMaster MyQ® app, which sends a smartphone notification if the garage door is left open and allows homeowners to close and secure it from anywhere with their smartphone.
