    PowerCode and CodeSecure
    To ensure secure communication, PowerCode devices transmit a 24-bit ID command code, which is selected from 16 million possible combinations and is therefore virtually impossible to accidentally reproduce. A smart anti-collision algorithm prevents signal jamming by simultaneous transmissions from multiple devices. When used with CodeSecure devices, the MCR-304 implements a rolling code encryption algorithm to prevent "code grabbing" by potential intruders trying to defeat the security system.
