Duh. [/quote] Get a lock duh. [/quote] I [u]have[/u] a lock. Ever hear of a drill? Look, I appreciate all your advice, but the economy is making people desperate for cash. They'll do [u]anything[/u] to make a quick buck. Again, I just want to know if there's any way I [u]prevent[/u] these guys from accessing my freakin' garage door opener frequency and opening the f*cking door! Off to sleep now - restless as it will be. [/quote] ok, that is just about the most paranoid idea ive ever heard. do you honestly think a residential burglar with even a single operating braincell is going to drill a garage door lock? as rapid an operation as it can be, there is NO legitimate non-suspicious reason for somebody to be drilling your lock out. anybody seeing it would immediately be suspicious, especially if you werent in evidence.it's a small pickup. that means 2 people at most. not a stickup team, but burglar/s. there is no guarantee (because of the rolling codes) that your door opening today will also open tomorrow. it's an opportunity crime. IF the door opens, there are no cars, and there is an easily loadable money maker in evidence (lawnmower, snap-on toolbox, bunch of power tools, etc) it offers the opportunity of a 2 minute in and out haul. such an opportunity gives a reasonable expectation of success. the fact that it occurred on a monday evening, at 8pm (a time/day combination where the majority of homes ARE likely to be occupied), is actually indicative of an unintentional triggering, or a couple of imbecile kids fucking around for shits and giggles. that said, just unplug your opener, and use the manual lock. give it a month, and if there is no incident in the area (or the perps get busted), it's reasonably safe to plug it back in. if you really want to go all paranoid/ fucktard about it, install a medico rim mount cylinder for your garage door lock (they are pretty much undrillable, and incredibly pick resistant).

Has anyone heard of the technology used for opening garage doors via remote control?
I received an e-mail from my local police chief that states:
"On Monday evening around 8 PM, several resident of the ****** area reported their garage doors opening by some unknown means.
Possibly related to this was a light blue smaller pick-up that was seen driving slowly within the neighborhood two nights prior, possibly looking for crimes of opportunity, such as home burglaries, thefts, etc.
Some older garage doors have fixed frequency codes, and the newer ones have rotating frequency codes. Don't assume that because you have the newer and better technology that the bad guys can't figure out a way to get those open."
Any ideas what this is about? Other than turning off the power to the garage door opener or putting the opener on 'lock' at all times? (Which means I could not open the garage door from outside at any time, via my remote, but maybe the bad guys still could?)
Are the bad guys accessing garage door frequency codes through a Radio Shack device or by some other exotic tech?
Thanks in advance. You guys rock.
