Hack of a story for you guys

cp from another forum:


VERY EERIE! Remote garage door openers and both car remotes stopped working!
I got the rest of the story for you guys.

About a year ago, I purchased an indoor clock radio that would show the outside temperature. I velcroed the accompanying black sensor box to the outside of the house so the clock radio would pick up the outside temperature.

Well, that sensor box had fallen to the ground, my wife found it in the grass, and she set it inside the garage because she didn't know what the box went to.

So having that sensor box sitting in the garage is what caused all the remotes to stop working. Once I removed that sensor box from the garage and put it back into its original location, the remotes started working again.

Thanks for your help.

The operating frequency on the clock and the garage should be in the manuals or on the devices. Let us know if they match.
