Garage doors (or any doors to access parking) should be able to be opened or closed without having to exit a vehicle. Manually having to open a door requires time and effort. A remote-controlled door provides convenience and security, whether it’s activated by pushing a button or triggered by a sensor.
All controls and keypads should have a simple interface with buttons that are easy to see, and can be operated without twisting, pinching, or grasping motions. Some doors are opened remotely by keypads that are permanently installed along a wall or driveway. These controls should be mounted within reach of any driver without having to exit the vehicle.
