Universal Remotes for Garage Doors

The most convenient way to operate your garage door opener is by remote control. There is no need to get out of your car in the pouring rain to lift that heavy overhead door when you can do the same from the comfort of your car. There are numerous remotes for garage doors available with some being specific to certain brands while others are universal to a variety of garage-doors.

Should you need to replace a faulty or old keypad, you will soon discover that there are a lot to choose from. Most are small enough to clip onto your key chain, which makes it very convenient to enter your home without a key.

One of the more well known universal remotes for garage doors that will work with numerous brands of opener is the Chamberlain Clicker which retails for around thirty dollars. The Clicker universal remote has two control buttons that can be programmed independently of each other. So, if you have a gate and door, you can easily set the remote to operate both openers. What's more, both the gate and the garage door can be entirely different brands.

The Clicker works on a system of rotating codes for enhanced security. It is able to operate up to one hundred feet away from the gate or garage door that it has been programmed to operate. Programming instructions come with the keypad and they can also be found on the Chamberlain website.

Although the Clicker is compatible with around ninety percent of openers on the market including Sears Craftsman, Liftmaster and Linear it will not work with the Stanley SecureCode or Genie Intellicode remote garage door openers.

Genie uses a proprietary rolling code technology that is different from other systems. If you happen to have a Genie Intellicode garage door opener, and you need a replacement remote, you can of course buy direct from the manufacturer. However, there are some other brands of remote on the market that will operate your garage door.

The Skylink Universal Key chain Transmitter, which also retails for around thirty dollars will work with the Intellicode opener. It is a small remote that can be hung on your keychain and kept in your purse or pocket. As well as Genie, the Skylink is compatible with a number of other garage door openers that have been manufactured over the past few years. Consequently, if your opener is on the older side, you may not necessarily have to go out and buy a completely new system.

Older Genie Intellicode garage door openers, that were manufactured pre 1997, can be operated by the Genie GMIC-2BL keychain transmitter. It uses rotating code technology that will help to keep your home secure. It has two buttons and can be individually programmed to work with two different doors or a door and a gate, making less remotes to carry around with you. This GMIC-2BL remote retails around the $23 mark.

Another remote that is compatible with the Genie Intellicode garage door opener is the Linear 3-Channel Remote model GT-31. This one sports three buttons which can be independently programmed for homes with three remote entry ways. One outstanding feature of the GT-31 is the ability to reprogram it using a Windows computer. The remote can also be set up to open the gate and the garage door with the same button.

Remote controls for garage door openers are available in many styles with several, such as the Clicker, being universally compatible with numerous different openers. In fact, some ninety percent of garage doors are said to be operable by the Clicker. There are also many other remotes that will work for your garage door as well.
