Keyless Remote Garage Door Opener

If you already have a remote garage door opener fitted to you home, you will be only too aware how much difference it can make to your life. However, as convenient as they are, door openers can also pose a security risk. By adding an external garage door keypad, you can enhance both security and safety of your home against intruders and burglars.

With the addition of a keyless remote garage door opener keypad, you will be able to keep out anybody who doesn't know the entry code number and also eliminate the need for you to always have your keys or remotes to hand. Rather than give keys to children, who could lose or misplace them, a keypad entry system is becoming a safer alternative for many families.

To open the door, all you need to know is the entry code which you can program and reprogram anytime that you desire. The code itself normally consists of four or more digits and each member of your family can have their own easy to remember personal code. With multiple codes, no one has to try to remember someone else's favorite number.

Additionally, if you are expecting a person to clean or service household equipment, they can be given their own temporary access code which can be deleted once they have completed their work. This code can also be programmed to only open the house during certain hours so that they can only gain access to your home when you want them to.

Assuming that you only intend installing one keypad, it should fitted on the wall near to the entry point that is most frequently used, which will presumably be the garage. The keypad will operate the garage door opener for ease of entry.

There are two types of keypad available which are either wireless (no wiring required) or another with an internal control box that has to be hardwired to the external keypad. Some are specific to certain models such as the Chamberlin, Sears Craftsman and Genie garage door openers whilst others are universal. The latter can be programmed to work with a number of different openers that operate on a particular frequency and come with full reprogramming instructions.

Garage door opener keypads come in a variety of styles and finishes. Several metal finishes are available from shiny chrome to burnished bronze. Styles are usually nice looking, with twelve keys being standard. The rectangular style keypad is the most common with the keys arranged in a three by four pattern. However, there are also versions that feature two columns of six buttons each. No matter what the exterior style of your house is, you will be sure to find a style and color that blends in well with the decor.

There are more elaborate types of keypad that also include an LCD display window. This type of keypad can display error messages, should any faults occur, as well as telling you that the system is ready to go. Other types include an alpha numeric readout as well as LED displays which have lights of different colors to indicate what is happening with the home security system.

When choosing a garage door opener keypad, look for one that has several helpful features. For instance, if you decide on a keypad with a built in display, make sure that it can be lit from behind so that you can read the message in the dark. As well as that, it is also helpful for the keys themselves to be back lit so that you can see the numbers. The display window itself should also be a reasonable size to make reading the messages easier. There should also be a lid that flips down to protect the keypad from the elements.

A modern type of garage door opener accessory is the keyless keypad entry which ensures that you are able to access your garage even when you can't find your keys or remotes. As well as that. it also offers a safe and secure option for letting in workers, cleaners and repairmen should you be unavailable to let them in personally.
