Family-Safe Systems for Your Garage Door

Focusing on Safety for Children

With a garage door being the largest moving object in your home, the number one factor for consideration must be safety. Protecting your family is important to us, so at Dominator Garage Doors, we incorporate some of the most advanced safety features into our doors and opening systems. 

Standard on all Dominator garage doors is a technology that senses when the door comes into contact with an obstruction, pausing and reversing the door to avoid injury and damage. As an optional extra, we can fit an infrared beam to Dominator openers, which will automatically stop the door if the beam is broken. This means the door will sense children, pets and vehicles before coming into contact with them.

Technology for Convenience & Security

You don’t have to worry about losing garage door transmitters or house keys any longer. Installing an entry keypad to your automatic garage door will allow entry without the need for remote controls – this is ideal for children and people who are prone to losing things, or for times such as dog walking, when you’d like to leave the house without needing to carry keys. You can change the combination as often as you need to in order to keep your family secure.

Our Latest Automated Security Features

Safe Lock anti-tamper system comes standard with Dominator Openers. Safe Lock will automatically lock the garage door if an intruder tries to lift it.

The Dominator Auto-LockTM utilises a keyless system to lock your garage door every time you use it. With the press of a button on your remote, a bolt slides into the guide track, creating a physical barrier. This innovation doubles the force required to lift the door from a closed position, which deters and prevents burglars from entering your home through the garage. Auto-LockTM is available as an optional extra on all Dominator sectional garage door and opener packages.

Forgetting to close your garage door or realising the children have arrived home without access to the house can be a terrifying feeling. Luckily, we’ve solved these problems with a Smartphone Control Kit that allows you to check if your garage door is closed and operate the door from anywhere in the world*. Our easy-to-use app will let you monitor your garage door and receive alerts should anyone enter. Family members can have the app on their phones too, enabling keyless access to the home and giving you peace of mind via notifications. The Smart Phone Control Kit is available as an optional accessory on all new residential Dominator garage door openers.
*Subject to cellular and WiFi connection and availability.
