You’ve most likely seen a keypad on someone’s garage door—neighbor’s, friend’s or family member’s. They are usually installed right outside of the garage, by the door. Keyless entry allows you to open and close your garage door by simply typing in a code that you yourself set (and it’s simple to reset as well if it is ever necessary to do so). As the name suggests, no keys are required. It doesn’t get more convenient than that!
