To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We have had this keypad for almost a year and it has been very reliable so far, even in -30 degree winter temps. Setup was easy and it works as you would expect. The ability to have up to an 8 digit code is nice for extra security.
There are some minor nitpicks. The backlight isn’t very even...it just lights up in a column behind the 2, 5, and 8 keys. While there haven’t been issues so far the weatherproofing could be better. There doesn’t seem like there’s much preventing water from seeping in and potentially damaging the internals Also it would be preferred if the battery door was more subtle and at least secured with a screw. As it is the battery door simply slides off so anyone could walk up to it and remove the batteries in a few seconds with no tools. None of these things have really been a big issue yet but are areas that could be improved.
I bought this to replace the keypad that came with my Overhead Door brand keypad. The original was a piece of garbage and impossible to program.. I went a year without having a functioning keypad because it frustrated me so much, but this one was wonderfully easy to program, I wish I bought it sooner.
PROs: same as the original. Pairing is straightforward if you have your manuals. Works great! Cons: Same as original means the same problems. 1) Our original one lasted about four years. Hope this one lasts longer. 2) weather cover is held on with the same two plastic pins. Our original lasted about a year before snapping off. It doesn't hold up well in winter. You have to be very careful when opening or closing it. Likely reduced the lifespan of our original...
Garage door opener wireless keypad. I am disappointed that the keypad back-light does not operate until I push a number. This is very inconvenient in the dark. The box indicates "back-lit keypad with easy to see buttons". "Single door operation" indicates to ensure that number back light is off. I noticed on line that one of your other models has a back light for the keypad which comes on to see the numbers in the dark. My original key pad was like this. Is there anything you can do for me?

Good purchase. Easy to pair with an older model Genie single opener. Company also has a great professional video if you're needing to watch, rather than read, instructions - just be careful not to hold the pairing button down longer than said or it'll unpair your remotes (which are also easy to pair again). Only issue is needing most times to enter code multiple times but it's an inexpensive wireless system so it won't be perfect. Still easier to try a couple times than go back in the house to push the button!
Worked perfectly with my "Overhead Door" 696CD/B. Set up was simple, controls my two doors with no issues. Only the backlight illuminates only 2 5 and 8 numbers, no big deal for me, I guess its how it was designed.
I ordered 2 identical Genie garage openers Keypad for 2 different garages. This is the first time I have bought a garage door keypad and didn't realize how complicated it is so ended up getting 2 incompatible ones that don't work with either of the 2 doors of 2 different garages. Until the virus we did not order online but at the local stores where we can talk to sales people. This has been a newer experience for us oldies' so have made mistakes. Sorry. My grandkids sure have enjoyed the puzzles I order to do with them! I am grateful I can return the 2 keypads for a refund. Ruth Taitinger
Works first time, every time I replaced our original opener with this new one because the original struggled after 5 years. Original had to have code entered repeatedly to get it to work New opener works with first shot Easy to install , 10 minutes tops
I purchased this to work with my two Legacy garage door openers. I have had this for over a year now. Programming was straightforward and I was able to do so without any issues. It has worked perfectly since installing. Very happy.
Very easy to set up and install. We used as a replacement for the one that came with our garage door after it stopped working. Replacing it was very easy, programming it took just a few minutes. Works great.
