3 Advantages to Flash2Pass Technology

f2p2

The new Flash2Pass Technology turns your existing headlight high beam switch in your vehicle into a transmitter for your automatic garage door opener. It works with almost all cars, trucks, and motorcycles. A few advantages I’ve found with using this method of opening and closing the garage door are the following:

1. Convenience

Probably the most obvious benefit of the Flash2Pass system is it’s convenience.  There is no remote to lose and no battery to buy or replace as it is operated by power from your vehicle. It is especially helpful for motorcyclists with no room for a remote. Flash2Pass saves them from the hassle of dismounting their bike to enter a code on a keypad or opening the door manually.

2. Compatibility

Flash2Pass is compatible with garage door openers manufactured since 1982, making it useable with almost any garage door opener out there. Up to six transmitters may be used per receiver and multiple receivers can be set to work with one transmitter, a feature great for vacation homes or family homes with several vehicles.

3. Easy Installation

This is a quick and simple DIY project! Just connect the receiver where your existing wall-mounted button or switch is located. Mount the transmitter underneath the hood of your vehicle. The complete instructions are safe and easy to follow.

EXTRA TIPS:

  • To increase working range reposition the transmitter closer to the front grill under the hood as it will work best with the least amount of metal obstruction.
  • If you have an older garage door opener system, it may not have adequate power supply to operate the Flash2Pass. Simply use an external power adapter. You probably already have an extra adapter that will work lying around.

Top Features of the Genie G3T-BX That Make It the Right Remote For You

In looking for a remote for your garage door, it is first important to know the make and model of the garage door operator. If this information can’t be found on the opener itself, you will find it in the owner’s manual. By online research or consulting a local garage door service store, multiple remote recommendations should work for your opener.

Because there are many types of remotes that can be used for a single garage door opener, the search for the right remote can be confusing.  Choices of manufacturers and models further complicate decision making.  Whether you are looking for a replacement for an old remote or an extra remote for a new opener, Genie garage door opener remotes are known for their consistent quality.  With its universal compatibility, convenient small size and simple programming, the Genie G3T-BX Remote is no exception to their reputation.

Compatibility

This remote is compatible with all Geni Intellicode hand-held transmitters and can be used to operate up to three different garage doors. Each of the tree buttons on the Genie G3T-BX remote is defaulted to operate the new intellicode 2 Genie garage door openers but can alternatively be individually programmed for pre-2011, intellicode 1 models. It also emits both 390 MHz and 315 MHz frequencies, ensuring the strongest possible signal to the receiver.

Small Size

The light weight, compact design makes the Genie G3T-BX remote a perfect addition to a keychain. It fits comfortably in a hand, pocket, or purse giving owners full control for extra security. The included visor clip provides versatility to meet all access needs.
