Essential Info

Don't dig around your car to find your garage door opener! The Garage Door Remote Control is a system that comes with a garage door receiver that triggers your automatic garage door when you press a button on the included transmitter that fits right on your key ring. You won't even need to go into an empty house: The transmitter will even turn on a light to guide your way if you have a Switch Receiver (sold separately).


What's Included

  • 1x - Garage Door Receiver
  • 1x - Clip
  • 1x - Mounting Bracket
  • 1x - Keychain Transmitter with Battery
  • 1x - 15-foot red/black wire
  • More Info

    The receiver is easy to install. Connect the stripped ends of the included wire to the two terminals on the back of your wall-mounted door control, and plug the connector end into the receiver. That's it! The Keychain Transmitter's left button is preprogrammed to operate the receiver.

    There is no limit to the number of transmitters that can control the Garage Door Receiver, so every member of your family will be able to access your garage. Simply set the same operation code on all transmitters with the same code setting on the receiver. Additional Keychain Transmitters are sold separately.

    For a more permanent access transmitter, the Keyless Entry Transmitter (sold separately) is easily mounted on the wall of your garage for PIN access at any time.

    No problems installing. Works as advertised.
    JILL -- peoria, IL   4/6/2013
    We got several of these for our teenagers who have to park their cars on the street. In the past they've never had a garage door opener since for safety reasons we didn't want an opener sitting in a car on the street. Since these openers can hook to their key ring it's a safe way to give them easy access to the house. Installation was very simple, and after about a month of use we have not had a single problem. Love these!
    JOEL -- east peoria, IL   4/4/2013
    Replaced my codedodger remotes with these because of RF interference. Range is double what it was and works every time the button is pressed. I have bought more after installing. One Con is that the wire going to the remote switch came lose from the connector. Easy to fix.
    Gomeric -- Peoria   3/8/2013
    Garage door remote hardly worked with radio interference. With this I can open my door almost 3 times the range as the ones with the manufacture.
    LORRAINE M -- mesa, AZ   3/7/2013
    I ordered 3 garage door remotes. The batteries in all 3 were dead upon arrival. Installation was very easy. There was no information on setting up the right button on the remote.
    GAYLE K. -- new braunfels, TX   3/4/2013
    My mom has a garage door from a long time ago and her button did not work. NOW,thanks to Skylink her remote control is back in operation. This product rocks!!! Thank you!
    LLOYD -- west mifflin, PA   2/14/2013
    Excellent product for the price. Easy to install, remote works fine. Nothing fancy here, but beats getting out of the care to open/close the door.
    PATRICK -- freeport, NY   1/11/2013
    This is my second Skylink control, the previous being destroyed by hurricane Sandy. I would recommend it to anyone above other makes I have tried in the past.
    ROBERT -- mentor, OH   8/19/2012
    I was satisfied with the first 318TR, so I bought a second one for the second garage door (and second car). It's very convenient to have one transmitter control either door. Installation was easy and both units perform perfectly. One tiny gripe: the supplied wire that connects the contact output to the opener control is VERY fine gauge and easy broken when connecting to screw terminals. I soldered short lengths of #22 onto the supplied wire and used that to connect to the opener.

    Two years ago I bought a Sears garage door to replace a previous Sears opener. From the beginning the remotes would not activate the garage door. Sears replaced the logic board. Still no success. Two companies stated that the 315 MHZ signal was being stepped on by something. I fell back on X10 with a momentary contact but after about a year it was problematic. Tried Insteon I/OLinc with dual band access point and that worked but overkill in the cost of a solution. Today I received the Sky Link 318 TR. It took 5 minutes to install and worked great. The range on the remote is excellent with door down. It has solved my problem and freed up my Insteon stuff for other applications. SkyLink recommends wiring into the garage door opener wall switch but I went directly to the contacts on the garage door unit where the wall wires are connected. Again works great.
    ROBERT -- richmond hts, OH   4/21/2012
    I needed a sensibly-priced replacement remote control for my Heathkit (which failed after 40 years of service!). The Skylink was easy to install, had plenty of range and works every time. I'm completely satisfied and recommend this product.
    ROBERT -- pembroke pines, FL   4/7/2012
    Good experience.
    Chuck D. -- Cape Cod   10/28/2011
    Works great! I bought 2 for our garage doors, very handy!
    DANIEL -- hamlin, NY   10/25/2011
    works great, delivery great
    STEVEN -- nashua, NH   8/6/2011
    The garage door receiver was easy to install. Only took a couple of minutes. I was hesitant to purchase the unit because the transmitter did not include a clip to clip to my visor and the transmitter was too large for me to add to key ring. The range is not as good as my old unit. For the price it works just fine.
    RICHARD F. -- montoursville, PA   7/25/2011
    This is the second one I have bought and am very satisfied with them.
    SANDRA -- carnegie, PA   7/3/2011
    Remote door opener works great. Wish the cord were longer to the wall outlet. Instructions say you can buy a longer one, but I called and that is not true.
    MATTHEW -- land o lakes, FL   5/22/2011
    Works good over a short distance (20-30 feet) Would like it better if it had a sun visor clip for mounting in the car on sun visor
    ANDREE -- white bear lake, MN   11/25/2010
    you have the best price, you shiped fast and the product works great. thanks for doing your job so well.
    GEORGE -- sapulpa, OK   11/18/2010
    product was as described, very good service
