Do you use one of those handy garage door opener key pad codes to open your garage? They are pretty popular these days. Families often use them to let themselves into the house without a key. Pretty handy, but do you ever clean the buttons?
Problem: Over time, the buttons you use for your code will appear cleaner or dirtier than the ones you don’t use. This could give a criminal a clue as to what numbers you use for your code making the odds of guessing your code easier.
Solutions: Periodically inspect your key pad and clean off your key pad when needed, so the dirt doesn’t give away your door code.
