Wireless exterior keypad: what is it exactly and how does it work?

We carry several wireless exterior keypads ( 377LM, 387LM, 877LM, 877MAX) meant to simplify your life. No longer will you need to enter your house in order to operate the door from the wall control panel.

A keypad works just like a remote control transmitter (remote control).

This type of keypad is very useful if you have a shed or a detached garage where you cannot install an access door (width of 36" / 91 cm).

For LiftMaster, Chamberlain and Craftsman (Sears) electric garage door openers, we are able to supply you with the exterior keypad that corresponds to the model of motor you have.

If my opener isn’t one of the brands mentioned above, what can I do?

If your door opener is from Stanley, Genie, Linear, or Wayne-Dalton, there is a way to install a “universal” wireless keypad, the 387LM . If you have another brand of door opener, LiftMaster products are not compatible. If you are at all unsure, bring your remote control with a photo of your door opener to us at our store. We will then be able to evaluate whether or not a wireless exterior keypad can be added to your system.

Are there keypads for my commercial door openers?

Yes… if you have a LiftMaster brand door opener. The KPW250 keypad is compatible with Security+ 2.0 , Security+ and Linear Multi-Code 300 MHz technologies, up to 25 activations per day. It is powered by a 9-volt lithium battery and can keep up to 250 codes in memory. It has a blue backlit keypad that is easy to read in low light conditions. With its electronics fully sealed and meeting NEMA 4X water protection requirements, it is a good choice for damp locations.

I live in a condominium building, so can an exterior keypad be installed?

Yes, and it’s much better than having a magnetic card or key system. We recommend the KPW250 keypad.

Replacement batteries : where can I find them?

If you have a LiftMaster, Chamberlain or Mastercraft keypad, you need a 9-volt, rectangular battery. We have these batteries in inventory at our store.

Can someone intercept the radio signal coming from my keypad and come and open my garage door while I’m away?

Not if you have a LiftMaster, Chamberlain or Mastercraft brand keypad. These keypads come with rolling codes .

Recently, LiftMaster / Chamberlain has begun offering the MyQ system which is very safe , allowing you to open or close your garage door by using an Internet application (IOS, Google Play or Android) on your computer, tablet or smart phone.
