NO REMOTE? NO HASSLE. One of our most popular home accessories is the Keyless Entry Keypad. If you have one now, you already know how convenient it can be for everyday uses. This handy device is most commonly used when the homeowner and other family members wish to open the garage door without a remote in hand. But did you know these advanced user secrets?This amazing little keypad can do more than you may have realized. The basic programming steps are explained right there on the underside of the cover, but we find that most customers don’t review those steps or aren’t aware of the keypad’s enhanced features. They also don’t reset their personal code periodically.
Download the attached “Quick Tips” guide for a quick refresher on how to program and use the keypad.
In it you’ll find how to:
Set a temporary code for guests or service workers
This is a big help if you need to have a plumber stop by, but you can’t be home to let that person in. Just set a temporary PIN for access through the garage. (Assumes your garage is attached to the house, of course. Otherwise, you may have a very confused plumber!)
A neat feature is that you can choose to have the PIN expire after a certain number of hours or after the PIN has been used a certain number of times.
Use the ONE BUTTON CLOSE feature
Did you know that you can use the keypad’s ENTER button as a shortcut to close the door, even without entering your PIN number? It may be easier than reaching inside the garage to press the manual close button. Check the Quick Tips guide for how to activate this feature.
Set it to work with more than one garage door opener.
If you have a garage with multiple Raynor doors and openers, the keypad can be paired with up to three of them, opening and closing the doors with individual 4-digit codes.
Reset your personal code
It’s a good practice to reset your personal identification number periodically for security. To make this more of a routine, consider adding it to your “To Do” list on major holidays, or the last day of the month, or some other occasions that are easy to remember. If that is too much of a chore, at least do it on your birthday. Reward yourself and keep your home safe!
