Every automatic garage door opener needs one thing, a remote or key to open it. While it isn’t necessary to have a garage door opener remote, it does make it more convenient for homeowners to open their garage doors from afar. When it comes to choosing the right garage door opener remote, there are a few options to choose from. Quality Garage Door Repair is here to walk you through all of the options available to you and some of the benefits each one has to offer.
Garage Door Opener Remotes
When choosing the right garage door opener remote, it really comes down to personal preference. Here are some of the choices you have:
Visor Clip Garage Door Remote
Most people are wanting to open their garage door from their car, and will be driving when they need to use the remote. The visor clip remote has a metal clip attached to the back of the remote that keeps it securely clipped to your visor. Having the remote clipped to your visor makes it accessible and convenient. There are a variety of remotes to choose from and you can count on being able to open the garage door when you are within 100 feet of the garage door with most models. Many visor clip remotes available come with two buttons and the possibility of being programmed for more than one garage door.
Keychain Garage Door Opener Remote
For those that want to have access to their garage door opener in more places than just their vehicle, a keychain remote might be the best option. They are usually small and rectangular or square, much like a key fob. One thing to keep in mind when choosing a key chain remote is the fact that a lot of them are only compatible with a 10-key code that allows them to be paired with the opener. If you have a garage door opener that is older, it is likely that you don’t have a 10-key code.
Garage Door Remote Transmitters
This type of garage door opener remote is unique in the fact that it doesn’t attach itself to your keys or car in any way. It looks similar to a television remote but only have a couple of buttons on it. The problem with this type of remote is the fact that you can easily lose it. If you make it a habit to place it in a secure spot each time you use it, this may be the right choice for you.
