Let Friends In While Keeping Strangers Out by Setting a Temporary PIN

Temporary Garage Door PIN

 

Homeowners may frequently find themselves in the position where a friend or trusted technician is in need of entering their home. Although you trust that they would not steal from you or do anything to damage your home, you may not want them to always have full ability to enter.

Fortunately, you have the power to create a Temporary PIN for your garage door opener! A Temporary Garage Door PIN may be designated to work with any type of schedule. You may set it so it can only be used once to allow your D&D installer inside for a repair. Or, you may set it for a week when you’re out of town to allow someone inside to take care of your dogs!

Your family will continue to use the same, confidential PIN, while others receive the ease of access to a temporary time frame.

Programming a Temporary Garage Door PIN for your LiftMaster Wireless Keyless Entry System requires 3 simple steps:

  1. Enter your PIN then hold down the * key until your overhead monitor light blinks 3 times.

  2. Enter your selected Temporary Garage Door Pin then hold down the ‘Enter’ key until your overhead monitor light blinks 4 times.

  3. Depending on your reason for a Temporary Garage Door PIN, you may choose to set a certain number of hours or a certain number of uses in which you want the PIN to work.

         A: To set a certain number of hours:

                      i. Enter a number (1-255) to specify how many hours from the present time you would like the PIN to be in use.

                     ii. Hold down the * key until your overhead monitor light blinks 1 time.

                     iii. The Temporary PIN may now be used.

        B. To set a certain number of uses:

                   i. Enter a number (1-255) to specify how many times the PIN can be used.

                   ii. Hold down the * key until your overhead monitor light blinks 1 time.

                   iii. The Temporary PIN may now be used.
