Among the security and technological developments in garage door openers, the wireless keypad has become one of the most popular since the 1990s. Manufacturers like Genie, Craftsman and LiftMaster offer versions of the overhead garage door keypad. These systems allow the owner to open the garage door using a security passcode from outside of the garage or inside the house. Programming of the wireless keypads can be done in minutes at home, and without any previous training or experience.
