universal garage door keypad...

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?

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.
