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.
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.
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.Read more ›
They only drawback is that the keypad is not very brightly lit. In the dark, you can barely see the green light, but still enough to determine what button is what. Just wished the light was a bit brighter.
Also something to keep in mind is that the black/red wire is only about 20 ft long so you need to find a power source that is within 20 feet of where you will connect the ends of the wire.
