What Should I Do If My Garage Door Remote is Lost?

Published on May 4th, 2020

Your garage door remote is as important as any other key to your home – and unfortunately, these small devices go missing on occasion. It doesn’t matter if your remote was stolen, it fell out somewhere while you were rushing around, or you loaned it to your sister when she stayed with you but never got it back, a lost remote is troubling. The good news is, it’s easy to secure your home even if you’ve lost the remote.

Erase the Remote and Reset the Unit’s Code

If you happen to have a spare garage door remote, as most homeowners do, you can still use that remote and remain safe by erasing the other one from the opener’s memory. Then reset the code on both the remaining remote and the opener. It’s the same as if you lose a key to your home and you have the locks changed.

Higher quality garage door openers usually provide online guides with instructions on how to erase a lost remote control unit from your opener’s memory.

Purchase a Replacement Garage Door Opener Remote

If you don’t have a spare remote, or simply want to replace the one that’s gone missing, you can log on to your computer and search for a replacement option from your unit’s manufacturer. If that doesn’t work, or you don’t know what model opener you have, give Roberts Garage Doors a call! We can help you locate a replacement remote or provide you with a universal remote option.
