Benefits of a Battery Backup

How The New Battery Backup Law Protects You

In 2018, some of the most deadly and devastating wildfires in California history ravaged the state. Unfortunately, many people were unable to get out of their garages because power outages prevented their garage door from opening.

This prompted a new law that went into effect in July 2019, which requires each new garage door opener sold in the state of California to include a battery backup. Violation of this new law could result in penalties of up to $1,000! Before you bring your system into compliance with the new law, check out these benefits of having a battery backup for your garage door opener.

Power Outage

During the wildfires of 2018, many people were unable to exit their homes due to devastating power outages. A battery backup will ensure that you can quickly access your car to seek assistance or retrieve supplies during an unexpected blackout.

Emergency Relief

Finding that your garage door opener is out of commission during an emergency will undoubtedly cause you and your family immense stress. A battery backup will ensure that everyone is able to exit the home quickly, regardless of the situation at hand.

Inclement Weather

If a particularly tumultuous storm hits, your garage door opener may be compromised. In the event of a mandatory evacuation, make sure you and your family are able to exit safely and drive to a more secure area.
