It is something so small yet it wields so much power. It is your garage door remote. Most likely attached to the visor in your car, this handheld device gets you in and out of your garage with just the click of a button.
Have you ever had to shop for a new garage door remote? If you have, then you know that the choices can be overwhelming.
We were here to help simplify things for you. When it comes to remotes you only need to remember 3 things:
1. DO NOT use a universal remote.
Not only can universal garage door remotes cause frequency interference; they are not always compatible with your garage door opener even though they say they are “universal.”
2. DO buy a remote that has the capability to work as many doors as you may have.
3. If there is a BEST garage door remote, it is the new 893MAX 3-Button Visor Remote Control by LiftMaster
The LiftMaster 893MAX is compatible with all LiftMaster openers manufactured since 1993. It has a motion lighting system so that you can see the buttons in the dark and is appealing to the eye as well.
