LiftMaster 890Max 3-Button Mini Remote Control
Another commonly overlooked tip is to avoid leaving your garage door opener in a visible location in your car. You wouldn’t leave your house keys in your car, so why make the key to your garage (and therefore the rest of your house) easily accessible to thieves? Keep the opener in a discreet location in your car, or, even better, get a garage door opener that attaches to your keychain. Make sure the keychain remote matches the type of garage door you have and that it uses rolling code technology.* The LiftMaster Mini Keychain Garage Door Opener has all the qualities we recommend and would be an excellent choice for a compatible LiftMaster garage door.
*Older garage door openers use the same code every time they open the garage door, but tech-savvy thieves could steal that code and duplicate it to break into the garage. Modern garage doors use rolling code technology, which generates a new code every time the garage door opener is used. To find out if your garage door uses this technology, check the serial information and look for Security+2.0, Intellicode, MyQ, or even the words “rolling code” to confirm.
