Our tech Dan was awesome. Super prompt, very knowledgeable and always took the time to explain everything. Definitely recommend.

I truly recommend Garage Door by soho most professionals and honest person Danny from day one was so professional on setting the appointment makings sure i was ok with the time gave the best options for any future problem with my garage Big thumb up for u n ur company thank for the best experience
Dan and his company rank up there with the likes of Publix, Chic-fil-a & Disney in my opinion. Punctual, professional, courteous, reliable, kind & honest. Not a company that tries to nickel & dime the customer or recommended unnecessary parts/labor. Will definitely use again if/when needed & will most certainly refer to others from here on out.
I had to leave for work and left my wife to meet the people. when i got home she let me know how professional the two men were and they didn't try to sell her something, just because i wasn't at home. we would definitely recommend this company and when i'm ready, i will purchase a garage door from them

Garage-Door Openers: Signaling Security
Learn a little about the technology inside the little remote in your car with Groupon’s examination of garage-door openers.
In 2012, garage doors throughout southeastern Connecticut mysteriously seized up. The culprit? A military submarine base.
Annoying as it may have been, there was nothing sinister behind this pattern. Rather, it was simply a side effect of the way all remote-entry garage-door systems are designed. Each time you open or close a garage door, the remote and the receiver inside have a brief conversation in code—a conversation that happens to be conducted via radio signals over the airwaves. The unfortunate homeowners in Connecticut eventually learned that the signal emitted from the submarine base’s radio-communication system shared a frequency with their garage-door systems, and the more powerful military signal drowned out the information their remotes were trying to transmit.
The codes transmitted by garage-door remotes have gotten far more complex over time. As early as the 1960s, burglars learned to use radio scanners or “code grabbers” to pick up the code when the homeowner used it to open the door; they could then re-transmit the code to gain entry themselves. In response, most remotes today use rolling codes that can generate billions of combinations.
This is possible because each time a message is sent between remote and receiver, each part of the system also selects and stores a new code. Those codes will always be in sync because each has been programmed with the same pseudo-random number generator—that is, a formula that produces a sequence of numbers that would appear random to anyone not possessing the formula. (Beware, however: it is possible to desynchronize the system by pressing the remote button out of range of the opener more times than the system’s built-in tolerance for error will permit.) Once this is done, the remote and receiver are ready to kick the system’s motor into gear and help you begin or end another day on the road.
