Replacement keypads cost a ridiculous amount in the UK, typically around Â£90, for example here is an exact replacement for mine:-
Near identical keypads (identical except for the operating frequency) cost only $25 - $30 in the USA. I've tried hard but I really can't find anyone offering them at reasonable prices in the UK. One web site I contacted was a 'trade' supplier where I had filled in details of my Ltd. company to ask for a price. They had actually gone to the time and trouble of looking up my company registration etc. to see if I was a business dealing in Garage Doors and as I didn't appear to be they wouldn't supply me.
This all smacks to me of restrictive practices and/or price fixing, is it worth reporting to trading standards?
Regardless of the above has anyone got any suggestions for a keypad to operate a garage door that won't cost an arm and a leg? It doesn't actually have to be wireless as the keypad is on the outside of the garage, all it needs to do is provide a momentary closure on entering the correct code. I have found one offered by an Ebay supplier which costs Â£40 which is not *too* unreasonable but still seems a little expensive.
I'm quite happy to DIY it a bit, e.g. buy some components and a box, as I was an elextronics engineer once upon a time and can still solder OK and build electronicky things.
