This is the complete set that consists of the patented transmitter, corresponding receiver, all installation hardware and easy do-it-yourself installation instructions.
You know your garage door remote. Maybe it’s clipped to your visor, or in your purse or your jacket pocket, or under the seat, or in the glove compartment, or stashed away in the console. Maybe it just drove away in the other car.
You know what the battery looks like, too, you replace it every year or so. It’s a nine-volt, or is it two AA’s? You better check before you buy new ones…
You might even worry about somebody swiping it and using it to get into your house.
We've solved these problems by electronically integrating the activation of your garage door opener remote into the high beam switch of your turn signal lever.
- A double flash of your headlight high beams opens or closes your garage door
- A small one time investment gets you the maintenance free system
- No remote transmitter to get stolen or lost
- No battery to buy or replace…Flash2Pass™ gets its power from your car
- Digital encrypted signal and rolling code technology for ultimate security
- Quick and easy do-it-yourself installation
- Up to six transmitters may operate a single receiver
- Additional receivers may be installed elsewhere and programmed to your Flash2Pass™ equipped vehicle
- Works with virtually any garage door opener manufactured since 1982
The Transmitter is a radio frequency device that is mounted under the hood of the car. It is relatively small, approximately 2” x 2” x ¾” and is attached under the hood with either the enclosed screws, or the plastic zip tie. The wires are attached with Posi-Tap™ connectors to the headlight high beam positive wire and to the ground wire. The Flash2Pass™ transmitter is non-polarized so you can attach either wire to the headlight wires.
The Flash2Pass™ receiver is designed to replace the push-button inside your garage. If you have additional functions on your push-button that you would like to keep, the receiver can be installed next to your original push-button and “piggybacked” to it.
The Flash2Pass™ transmitter and receiver are packaged as a set that is pre-programmed at the factory, or they are available individually. For instance, if you had a two-car garage with one large door for both bays, you would buy one set and an additional transmitter. The additional transmitter would be installed in the second vehicle and the receiver programmed to accept it.
Say you had a vacation home with a garage door opener. You could get an additional Flash2Pass™ receiver for it and then program your car to it. That way, you wouldn't have to remember to bring the remote with you. It will always be at your fingertips…both at home and on vacation.
Now, if you live in a gated community and the community installed the F2P Integrated Control Access System, you would be able to access the community gate, and your individual garage. We call this the “gate to garage” concept. Also if you worked in a place that had some sort of parking control and the F2P ICAS were in place, you again could use your Flash2Pass™ transmitter to gain access, assuming you were authorized and/or programmed into the receiver.
Transmitter installation on a motorcycle
Installation of the Flash2Pass™ transmitter on a motorcycle is very simple. Depending on the model of motorcycle, the easiest way to do it is to remove the headlight from the bucket as if you were changing the bulb, and connect the transmitter, as described above in the car installation. Then just tuck the transmitter into the bucket and re-install the headlight. Again, this may not be applicable to every installation, but it is a general rule of thumb
Note: Approx. 5% of garage door opener motors do not produce enough power to energize the F2P receiver, order the AC adapter to take care of this problem
