Remote Control Range

Spot, location, area

Garage door opener distant handle distances and variety might fluctuate dependent on the portion of city you are in, for example an opener in Point Loma or La Jolla (coastal) will not get anywhere in close proximity to the variety an opener may assume to get in Santee or Lakeside (Inland) simply dependent on whats floating all-around in the air. There are a multitude of frequencies floating all over continually from radio signals to navy operations and that is what establishes how properly your distant is heading to perform.  

I reside in Santee (Inland) and I generally uncover the vary to be fantastic, it does differ from working day to day among 80 to 100 feet and like most of you I am looking for optimum vary so when I noticed the selection on my gate slowly and gradually likely down.. down.. down, I waited right up until it acquired to the stage exactly where I desired to be ideal in front of it to open up, then I began with the antenna, because it is uncovered to the climate I took it down and replaced it with an old Tv set antenna I experienced and now my array is approximately 300-400 ft…. Difficulty solved!!

The require for far better reception

Now that won’t mean that you can do the exact thing simply because my antenna wire for my gate is coax cable…your antenna is only a wire, but the various opener makers have acknowledged a want for greater reception in and about the coastal parts and as of late have been making garage doorway openers that run on dual frequencies, this indicates that the transmitter or distant management will emit two frequencies at the similar time and the receiver developed into the opener will seize the strongest sign making it at least 2 times as superior as just before if not in the vicinity of best.

What you have to comprehend is that the frequencies our door openers run on is a frequency owned by the military services and when they physical exercise their correct to jam those frequencies there is not a point you or I can do about it….Nothing! We just have to be client and wait around it out, and I suppose immediately after additional of these solitary frequency devices get started finding changed by the newer products these issues will little by little go absent. There are some things you can do proper now to “aid” improve your assortment but none are assured to do the job and all are very costly. You can have an external antenna installed outside the house with coax cable but I’ve attempted that in the previous with confined success and by the time all is mentioned and accomplished you’ve got appear up a handful of bucks brief of a new device with the dual freq receiver now built into it.

The Liftmaster Rep instructed me last month that they have tested the dual freq equipment near a military services foundation in Florida and it worked flawlessly and Genie’s process is basically the exact same so to sum up this write-up I would say you now have two rational options when living on the coast…#1- Change the opener you at this time have, no matter of how previous it is, with one particular of the newer dual freq equipment, or #2- Wait around right up until the makers arrive out with this dual freq in an external receiver that you can attach to your current machine despite the fact that maintain in thoughts it really is not realistic to spend 90 bucks on areas plus labor on a new receiver and two new remote controls if your present-day procedure is more than 10 yrs outdated.

So If you are in that group of people continually having selection complications with your garage door distant management…solutions to your frustrations are on the horizon.
