Temporary Password…Ultimately Convenient
Many keyless garage door opener systems have a feature that allows you to create a temporary password that expires after a specific time. This is super convenient for many reasons:
- Friends or family arriving from out of town while you are still at work.
- Packages being delivered.
- Technicians, gardeners, or cleaning service staff needing entry while you are at work.
Kids Lost Their Keys?
Nothing is worse than getting locked out of the house. Especially when it is your kiddos! Never wonder if your kids remembered their keys, or if they were able to get in after school again! Now, whether they remember the code…
For extra security measures, experts recommend that you change your passcode frequently throughout the year. A perfect suggestion is to alter the code with the holidays. For example, consider updating around four times a year, at less apparent intervals: Christmas, St. Patrick’s Day, July 4th and Halloween.
One Pad, Many Doors
If you have many garage doors, traditional openers need a remote for each one. However, one keypad garage door opener can be programmed to pair with individual garage doors using unique 4-digit codes. Never again be confused about what remote opens what door, or have to worry about switching remotes if you take a different car.
