All About Genie Intellicode® Transmitters

When it comes to residential break-ins, the garage is one of the most popular sources of entry. Therefore, if you want the best security for your garage, you may want to consider investing in a Genie® Intellicode transmitter. Here’s how Genie® technology can help you prevent unauthorized access to your home.

What is Intellicode® And How Does It Work?

Genie®’s Intellicode access security system features rolling-code technology that enhances the security of Genie® garage door openers. It offers significant advantages over conventional garage door openers that use fixed codes.

Conventional opener remotes transmit the same fixed security code each time the remote button is pressed. Because the number of available fixed codes is limited, a conventional garage door system is vulnerable to both malignant and accidental breaches. An unsuspecting neighbour may inadvertently use a remote with the same fixed code. At the same time, hackers with less-than-innocent intentions will encounter less secure resistance.

Genie® Intellicode is different. Every time your garage door system is activated, Genie®’s proprietary Intellicode system selects a new code from billions of possible combinations. This feature nearly eliminates the possibility of hacking and helps prevent unauthorized entry into your home through the garage. All Genie® remotes and openers integrate Intellicode technology, ensuring your garage is protected no matter which transmitter you choose.

Garage Safety Tips

Although Genie®’s Intellicode technology offers an added layer of protection to keep intruders at bay, here are a few additional tips for keeping your garage secure.

  • Install an alarm system. Placing motion-sensing alarms on your garage’s doors and windows is an effective way to prevent break-ins. Alarm systems draw attention to your garage, stopping intruders in their tracks. Motion-activated lights are also a great deterrent and will make burglars think twice about attempting a nighttime break-in.
  • Invest in window coverings. Garages are often used to store high-value belongings. Therefore, installing interior curtains or blinds is a good idea to keep prying eyes at bay. Consider using adhesive window coverings if you want to let in natural light.
  • Lock the garage door. Lock your garage door every time you close it. This is especially important during extended absences. If your door doesn’t have a built-in lock, you can purchase an aftermarket one and easily retrofit your unit.
  • Keep the garage remote in a safe place. Although it’s convenient to keep your garage door remote in the glovebox or clipped to your car’s sun visor, these are the first places a burglar will look. Make a habit of taking the remote with you wherever you go and stowing it somewhere safe.

  • Upgrade your garage door opener. Upgrading an automatic garage door opener with the latest security features is a great way to keep your garage safe. For example, the Aladdin Connect® Wi-Fi retrofit kit by Genie® from Creative Door Services™ is compatible with most sectional garage door openers manufactured after 1993. It enables you to remotely access and monitor your garage door from anywhere in the world via your smartphone or computer.

  • Stay on top of garage door maintenance. Neglecting garage door maintenance can make your home more vulnerable to break-ins. Creative Door Services™ offers a planned maintenance program. Our technicians will periodically visit your home at your convenience. They’ll inspect your garage door for damage, examine the weather stripping for wear and shrinkage, and test and adjust the balance to ensure it continues to work for years.
