keypad access

I was wondering if there are add-on pass-code units that can be hooked up to existing garage door openers ..A friend told me you had to buy a new opener this really isn't an option for my neighbor

any info is appreciated in advance

Yes, I believe Genie makes one. It is hardwired. Never seen it at the big box stores but at smaller hardware stores.

Sears used to have them (probably 15 years ago), but I have no idea who made them. There is a good possibuility Genie could have made them for Sears.

I bought a wireless keypad for my garage door a few years ago. I believe you may even find them in the big box stores.

I know Genie do have wireless keypad and also Chamberlin do have them as well.

The cost that part I do not know what they charge for it and some openers you may have to add a piggyback reciver unit to it if they don't have it.
