Garage Door Opener Remotes
Garage door opener remote enables you to access the garage without having to get out of our vehicle and manually open the garage door.
There are three main types of remotes that are used in conjunction with garage door openers.
Types of Garage Door Remote Controls
The best way to know which remote control matches with your garage door opener is to check the manufacturer and model information on the opener’s motor.
Garage door remotes fall into two categories: Standard Remotes and Universal Remotes.
We do not recommend universal remotes, as many of them do not work on older models.
For old openers, contact the manufacturer.
These remotes include a keychain attachment. You can attach the device to your car keys for “easy-grabbing.” The keychain remotes come in a rectangular or square shape.
There are keychain remotes that can only control openers that use a 10-key code to pair with the remote.
VISOR CLIP REMOTE
As the name implies, these remotes can be clipped to your car’s sun visor. They frequently have up to three buttons on the front of the device. The range for a visor clip is around 100 feet. This means you can push the opening button as you are approaching home so you can gain access directly without having to stop and wait for the door to open.
Also known as bar-type remotes, they are stand-alone devices, very similar to a TV remote, that do not come with any appended parts to attach to a part of your car or keychain. These remotes are simple devices that may only have one or two buttons located on the face of the remote.
