[Amazon.ca] Chamberlain 940EV Garage Keyless Entry -- $40.83

Hey all,

I m in need for a replacement garage door remote. And apparently this can control multiple garage door. And according to CCC, this is the lowest price ever.

NOTE: Remember to pick amazon.ca as the seller for better protection.

I got one of these previously and could not for the life of me get it paired with my Liftmaster. It simply didn't work.

+1, I purchased this exact unit and it only works 1 out of 10 times, if I'm lucky. Liftmaster as well

Remember to put in a Lithium 9V. I had issues with regular batteries not working because it was too cold.

I used velcro to put it outside (I didn't want to drill the wall) and it holds well.

If this is the same as the standard ones that come with the opener, then I haven't had much luck with mine. Seems to open the door fine, but is really bad at closing it. 1/10 times it works. Had to resort to putting the car clip just inside the door so I can close it that way

Cannot stress this enough... regular alk batteries are useless once temps are below -5*C; lithium battery, no probs even at -25*C.

Yes.. they 're prioritizing essential shipments.

I've made 5+ orders in the last couple weeks, they all gave an estimate of one month+ but they were all shipped within a week, some within 2 days.

The long date is just a placeholder because, yes, they are prioritizing essentials but they will ship other things if they're able to.

I've had an AliExpress regular 9v battery in for the last 4 years without issue :shrug:

I have one of these. Had to climb up a ladder to within three feet to pair it even with a fresh battery. After that it works from thirty feet away every time. It seems finicky in the winter though that is me putting the wrong code in with gloved fingers and not waiting the required five seconds before trying again. If you put your hand over the pad to block the sun light, you see the pad flashing for five seconds. It won't accept a code until it stops flashing.

I use regular 9V alkaline batteries and get about two years out of them. It gets down to -30C here in Southern Alberta.

Possibly proximity and/or siding/door material?
I know that the first winter the dang thing stopped working as soon as temps dropped and would work again when it warmed. Went 2 winters like that then resolved it this year as soon as I put in a lithium battery. Have ready many similar issues online.

I'm guessing you've got an LED bulb in your opener. It interferes with the radio signal, which is why you have no trouble opening, but problems closing. Suggest you switch to good old incandescent...

Had one of these for about 8 yrs now, it's been surprisingly reliable.
