Best Garage Door Opener Remotes10/14/2013 Back To Blog
The technology of garage opener remotes is rapidly growing, expanding and evolving and there is a perfectly good explanation for this high development. Remotes play a vital role to the fast access into the garage and quick access implies higher safety. We live in a world full of chips and new technologies manage to fit perfect artificial intelligence to the tiniest products. Imagine that the new garage door opener access controls work with billions of different code combinations today ensuring the avoidance of hacking.
From universal to wireless keypads
Older technologies were great for easy access but they also involved a small risk since they were communicating through the same frequency. Today, things are completely different. Genie and Chamberlain, two major manufacturers, have introduced different models for higher safety. Intellicode by Genie and Liftmaster security plus, they both work with rolling codes, which alter the code every time the opener is operated. They basically reduce radio frequency interference and, thus, make it impossible for codes to be copied. They come out with one, two or three different buttons for multi code use of several openers and they are also available in microscopic devices to fit your key chain.
As the idea of smart homes tends to become our reality, some remote controls have also the capacity to operate some other household devices as well. Liftmaster has also introduced the smart control panel, which will not only provide quick access but also turn on and off the lights, give garage temperature and obstructs any other remote control signal from outside when you are not at home. The intelligent wall console by Genie has similar capacities including service reminder and information for the professional technician. All Craftsman wireless garage door keypads are illuminated, so that they can be found in the dark and compatible with all openers built after 1993. Craftsman remotes can be controlled from afar, operate several openers and their LED lights indicate shortage of battery or notifies you that the garage door opener has been signaled to be activated.
The truth is that the biggest manufacturers have excellent products of similar capacities and don't forget that each household or business would require different things. For this reason, there are many options for simple or complicated use, for one or more openers and the best part of remote control technology is that it will keep progressing. Today, we feel safer thanks to the persistence of manufacturers to offer the best and smarter devices for safer entry into our homes.
