It’s frustrating when you run into a problem with your garage door preventing you from easily getting your cars and other belongings in and out of the garage. When your garage door does not open there could be a problem with your keyless garage door keypad. If your garage door has a remote control and a keyless entry pad your local locksmith can reprogram, repair, or reset the keyless entry system.
Garage Door Keypad Repair and Maintenance
Cleaning of the Garage Door Keypad
Since garage door keypads are located on the exterior side of the doors they are prone to get moisture, dirt, and dust stuck around their electronic components. Even a small amount of moisture can cause the system to stop working. Dust and dirt can block the system’s sensor. Experienced locksmiths can take the pad apart and thoroughly clean dirt, dust, and moisture.
Reprogramming Keyless Entry System
A power outage or interference from a nearby keyless garage door entry system may necessitate a reprogramming of your garage’s equipment. Locksmiths can reprogram your entry system with a new code much like an IT specialist can reset your password. You will be able to choose a new code that is easy for you to remember. In some instances, you can even update the code with your home security system so the police will be notified if there are too many erroneous attempts to open your garage door.
If your keyless entry system stops working, locksmiths can replace the receiver. The newest technology for keyless garage door entry systems uses a rolling code. A rolling code is an internal code used to open a garage door which changes with every use so it cannot be hacked. This is similar to the chip technology embedded into new credit and debit cards. By having a locksmith install a new receiver your car and other belongings will gain a greater level of protection from burglars and would-be thieves.
