universal garage door keypad...

andrelaplume2February 12, 2012

Pop had a new garage door installed and I got the gargage cleared so the car could go in. (its not driven much anymore). We had an Odyssey 1000 ohd opener installed. I do not know if this is a good opener or not but it was inexpensive and likely will last a long time since its seldom used.

Well, I have found the need fo a wireless keypad in the front for getting into the garage...rather than walking around back where there is locked door. Its dark back there at night.

Is there a universal keypad that will work for this door. Overhead door company wants a fortune for their pad...or even another opener...and the opener clicker for the car of theirs was not that impressive!

Reccomendations....something at the depot under another name?

Below is a link for the 3 most popular. If you google 'universal garage door keypad' several reviews for the Chamberlain come up.
One review mentioned the Chamberlain requires photo-eye safety sensors, so I assume yours has this?

I assume these are the things that cause the door to reverse itself if something crosses its path while closing...if so then yes.
