If you have a manual garage door that is powered by a remote control, then you know how annoying it is to lose that part. It can be costly to replace the remote, and you’ll have to have it synced to your opener. A great way to avoid not being able to get into your garage if you lose the remote is a keyless entry.
What is a Keyless Entry For Garage Door Opener?
The keyless entry system requires a keypad be placed on the outside of your home. In order to open the door, you will enter the code and hit enter. When the code is inputted properly, the door will raise.
What Are The Benefits of Having a Keypad?
Many of our customers have chosen to have a garage door opener with keypad installed for the many benefits. Some of these reasons include:
No Key Required For Multiple Household Members
For those that have children or multiple people living in the home, a keypad is very convenient. They will be able to enter the house through the garage without a key. Of course, you will need to leave the garage door unlocked or have another keypad installed on that door. That is also a possibility.
This is very helpful for parents of tweens and teenagers. You won’t have to worry about them losing their keys while at school. They will always be able to get in the house.
Easy Way to Get Neighbors In The House
If you go out of town and need to let your neighbors in the house, this is a simple solution. You can change the passcode temporarily and give it to them. When you get back in town, you can just as quickly re-program the code so that they can only get in when you allow them to.
This is also a good idea if you have an emergency of some kind and need to get someone into your home. For example, if a repair needs to be done to your home and you want to send a friend over to your house, they can get in without having a key.
Vacation Mode or Lock Mode
To keep anyone from using your keypad while you are out of town or at work, you can lock down the keypad. Of course, that means that not even you will be able to use the keypad when you come home. You’ll need to have a way to get into your house to unlock the door.
