Product Description

Style Name: 318K Wireless Garage Door Keypad

Product Description

Keypas access transmitter provides extra garage security. You take extra care to make sure your home is secure, so why not get this same peace of mind from the knowledge that your garage is safe, as well? The Keyless Entry Transmitter mounts on the wall of your garage and works with the Garage Door Receiver (sold separately) to send a signal to your automatic garage door opener when you enter your personal access code. The backlight comes on and a beep is emitted when any key is pressed, so you'll know when the signal is being transmitted. Programming the Keyless Entry Transmitter is simple; just align the codes to match those on the receiver module, and it will automatically send a wireless signal to the Garage Door Receiver when you enter your identification code. Batteries are included, so you're ready to use this handy device as soon as the receiver is plugged installed.

From the Manufacturer

Keypad that works with most brands of garage door openers (to be used in conjunction with 318R receiver)

Style Name: 318TR Universal In-Car Garage Door Remote Control Verified Purchase
I bought the Skylink 318TR Garage Door Remote Control on October 3, 2009. This was just the product I was looking for. I have an older Stanley Secure Code opener for which I was unable to find a replacement remote that would work. The opener was installed by a previous owner and they did not leave me a working remote. Winter was coming and I wanted get a remote working before the snow season and make my wife happy.

Installation of the Skylink was as simple as could be. Just unplug the opener at the motor, wire the Skylink control wires to the hardwired button in series (along with the original control wires) and plug the Skylink into the outlet. Reconnect the power at the motor and it worked perfectly.

The only problem I had during the install was with the trip path sensors from the original Stanley Opener installation. This had nothing to do with the Skylink. The trip path sensors, since I bought the house were not functioning. Therefore, the hard wired button needed to be depressed for the entire time during the door down cycle. What I found is that the previous owner had incorrectly wired trip path sensors. My point is that to have the Skylink function correctly, the hard wired control button needs to control the up / down with a single push.

Both the remote and receiver appear to well constructed. The receiver is 2 prong (no ground) and is rather large. If it were to be used on a power strip it would most likely cover other receptacles. The flexible 12 inch antenna is permanently attached. The control cable is approximately 12 feet long. Therefore the distance between the power receptacle needs to be about 10 feet or an extension cord will be required. The remote was small and very convenient. I wish the manufacturer included a visor clip. The remote worked from about 75 feet away and I did not test any further distance.

All in all an excellent product and recommended.

Just did what it was supposed to!

Very happy with this. After years of stuggling with a poor garage door opener, I'm annoyed with myself for not buying this sooner.

Good price, works well, good range, easy installation.

Be sure to change the default codes. Easily done, good instructions

Out of several orders placed at the same time, this one arrived first.

You will need a 110v outlet within 12 feet of either...

a) The button you open your door with now.
b) The main door opening unit... as long as you can get at the wires from the switch that opens (and closes) the door.

Will it work with your motor, etc? If you can make that work by putting a screwdriver across some terminals, then yes, this unit will integrate with what you have.

If your door opener can be controlled with a contact closure - and most can - you are in business. Easy to set up and install. The second button the remote can be set up to control a light or a second door (with additional hardware). the remote takes an unusual A23 battery - but both Amazon and Wal-mart sell it for less than a dollar so no problem.

Style Name: 318TR Universal In-Car Garage Door Remote Control
The plastic cover on the transmitter broke when I opened it as the instructions indicated. I contacted the manufacturer with the minor problem and asked that they send a new plastic cover. They insisted I pay $17 for the cover. I asked that they stand behind their product. They explained that their policy was to charge extra. I explained that I would be reviewing the product negatively to reflect the problems if they would not rectify the problem with what appears to be a 2 cent plastic cover. They had me send in documentation before they decided if they would stand behind the product. I did so. I insisted that the owner of the company be informed before I made a negative review. It has been about 2 months. They have failed to rectify the problem. Very sad. They should have just dropped a plastic cover in an envelope instead of arguing and wasting our collective time. It probably would have been cheaper considering the labor time involved in the denial of a quality product or quality service.

Style Name: 318KR Universal Garage Door Keyless Entry System Verified Purchase
I was up and running with this in less the 30 minutes. The only reason it took that long was that I had to install an outlet in the electrical power box that my opener gets power from. Works great and keypad is very easy to use. I don't know how long the batteries will last since I've only had it a month.

Style Name: 318KR Universal Garage Door Keyless Entry System Verified Purchase
I needed a replacement for a wired keypad opener and after searching around decided to buy this one.

You need to plug the receiver into an electrical outlet and run it's 15-foot wire to either the wall button or directly to the garage door opener itself. I wired mine to the opener since the most convenient power outlet was the one the opener was plugged into.

The keypad fit nicely in the door trim and the code was very easy to set up.

It took all of about 20 minutes to remove my old keypad and get this one working.

2/11/2010 - I gave this item four stars because I had trouble at times with not being able to key in the code and opening the door due to a lack of battery power. I removed the batteries and pressed the contacts closer together and all has been well - even in 20 degree weather.

2/19/2010 - Today I had to replace the batteries to get the door to open. I had entered the code and the keypad beeped the required three times but the garage door did not open. I tried adjusting the receiver antenna but it still wouldn't work until I replaced the batteries. I hope the new batteries last longer than a few weeks or this device is going to get a one star rating. Right now I'll give three stars.

3/26/2010 - I am back again after having to replace the batteries yet again. They were fresh Energizer CR2032 batteries and they lasted, at the most, 5 weeks. This makes the opener totally useless especially since the person discovering the dead opener had no house key. I will be contacting the company next week and I will report back here - but for now I have to give this opener one star.

3/30/2010 - I emailed customer support and they have been very responsive and asked me to send the keypad to them for service.
