Is is possible to get generic remote openers, like the generic remotes for
TV/VCRs? LiftMaster and the local dealer are banging me hard for add'l
Is it possible to defeat the electric eye? Mine are causing trouble,
replacements are not cheap, and kids/pets are not an issue.

I bought an extra remote for our Craftsman door when our daughter got
her own car. Cost me $20.
They say they have compatible Liftmaster remotes too.
Keep in mind that if someone was injured it could mean a lot to their
attorney if you had disabled the mandated safety feature. Even if you feel
safe doing it, I don't believe it is a good idea.
I have had two openers since the early 70's on two different garages.
Not once did any of the electric eyes malfunction. I might add that it did
save my girlfriends car a couple of times when she did not have it far
enough into the garage.
