An Outdoor Garage Door Opener Keypad comes in handy when you forget your keys or your remote (or its battery is dead). Just enter your PIN number and your garage door opens.
Outdoor keypads usually have lighted buttons and a cover which offers weather protection. These units may be wireless or wireless/keyless.
At times you may want to grant temporary access to a delivery man or service person when you cannot be home. Since keys are easily duplicated, you may want to give this person temporary access to your home using your outdoor garage door opener keypad.
It can be programmed with a temporary PIN number and set to be usable for a specified number of days. Once that time has passed, the unit automatically reprograms itself so the temporary PIN number no longer works.
Garage door opener keypads used inside the garage range from a simple doorbell type pushbutton switch to sophisticated units.
Some features of the more sophisticated units include:
If you need to reset your remote keypad code, I suggest you refer to your owner's manual. If you no longer have your manual, Go to my owners manual page to find yours.
Owner's manuals are available online for Sears Craftsman, Genie, Liftmaster, and Raynor brands, each having instructions telling how reprogramming is done.
