4 Garage Door Accessories You Should Consider Investing In

Posted on: 20 November 2020


There are many exciting accessories you can install on your garage door to enhance control, comfort, and convenience. Here are a few garage door accessories that are worth considering:  

Mini Windows

You can install new mini windows in your garage door to provide the interior space with natural light and a little extra ventilation. Windows are easy to install in garage doors that are already in place, whether the doors have had windows in them before or not. Garage door windows come with frames that can be easily installed once holes are cut to accommodate them.

After the frames are installed, the windows can be secured into place. You can choose from a range of different sizes and styles, although windows made specifically for garage doors are typically compact in size to help maintain structural integrity.  

Decorative Hardware

Installing decorative hardware on your old garage door can give it new life and enhance its overall eye appeal. Decorative hardware is generally affordable and comes in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, styles, colors, and materials. As such, you should not have a problem customizing your garage door to complement the design of your home. New door handles and knobs, wrought iron hinges, and decorative trim are just a few options to consider investing in for your garage door.

A Smart Camera

A new garage smart camera will provide you with optimal security because it can start recording any time garage door movement or movements within the garage itself are detected. You can observe the recordings in real-time or after the fact from anywhere over a laptop or smartphone. Garage door smart cameras are designed to hold up to cold and hot weather, so you do not have to worry about making repairs or replacements due to the weather.

A Smart Control Panel

A smart control panel will allow you to control your garage door and lights from wherever you decide to install the panel. You can install it on the garage wall right next to the door that offers entry into your home. Likewise, you can install it in your family room where you can close the garage door and turn the garage lights off without heading into the garage. Some control panels feature timers that will automatically turn your garage lights on and off or open and close the door based on a programmable schedule.
