You can probably buy a generic box at home depot or Lowes that is wireless
and comes with a key pad that goes where you want and a receiver which
connects to any opener and mounts near the opener. Don't spend too much
because most new openers come with a free keypad these days.
I would get one that is the same brand as the opener and then you will not
have problems getting it set up. To set the key pad all you do is press the
red program button on the opener and you got about 30 seconds to set the key
pad, that is unless your opener is an antique. There are directions that
come with the key pad that tell you how to program it. It is a no-brainer.
Give each kid a key.
A burglar will see your keypad, break the garage door window, open the
garage door manually, drive their car inside, close the garage door,
and then have unfettered access to your house via your unlocked back
I think that what Niel is saying is that the burglar would break one of the
center windows to disconnect the door from the opener and lift the door
manually. Not about a wired keypad.
Let me give u bozo's a clue as to how we get into houses with these keypads.
When we're casing a neigborhood, after finguring out which houzes is vacant
all day, we jus dust the keys with talc powder. da keys used the most often
atract more powder cause they oily. a simple matter to whip thru all the
combinations possible with just those keys.
