[Amazon.ca] Chamberlain 940EV Garage Keyless Entry - $41.99

I have this item be tracking through CCC for better price a few weeks ago because my garage keypad didn't work well for some reason. Got noticed that it hit the historic lowest price today. However, I had my keypad fixed somehow and don't need one now. Just share the information. Homedepot has it @$64.95 but the model shows 940EVC-P2. PM is YMMV.

Looks like mine, which now hardly works (you really have to press hard), I'll give it a shot.

I've had one for a few years, and I find that after entering the code, I need to press the "Enter" key twice for it to work.
In the past, I though my keys were just not registering, so I would rekey in the whole code all the time and press enter again, until I realized that all I needed to do was press the "Enter" key a second time.
My in-laws have the same keypad, and it also seems to have the same flaw. Anyhow, once you know, it's not bad, but otherwise, you find yourself frustrated always entering the code+enter two or 3 times to get it to work.

Does this work with Liftmaster? My Liftmaster 8500W didn't come with one.

Depends on the model.
According to manufacturer:
Works with Chamberlain, LiftMaster and Craftsman Garage Door Openers
This master keypad works with Chamberlain, LiftMaster or Craftsman 315 MHz or 390 MHz garage door openers manufactured after January 1, 1993 (any opener with safety sensors).

Locate your learn button on your garage door opener, compatible colors include: Green, Red/Orange, Purple, Yellow.
So check the color of the learn button (it typically on the motor unit, either on the back, or just beside one of the lights). On the 8500 I believe it is just under the front cover, on the left to where all the wires connect. The color of the learn button varies depending on the security features and frequency the unit uses, which also defines which accessories are compatible with it. I believe the 8500 learn button is Yellow, so should be fine.

The other one has “one button close” which is a great festrr to have. Don’t have to punch the code in to close the door everytime you want to close the door.

True, however if the other one works with your garage door opener, it is definitely worth the extra 3 bucks.

The 940EV-P2 the OP posted uses the CR123A battery which typically cost $5 to $10 a piece to replace.

Anyone know how long these last with average use on this pad?

UPDATE: Hmmmm, some confusion here. Amazon says it take a "1 CR123A batteries required. (included)". But all the Youtube batteries and pdf installation guides show 9V batteries.

Anyone who already has one these confirm either way?

I have one. It takes a 9V battery, lasts maybe 2 years.

Thanks. I have advised Amazon of the incorrect battery info.

That is the problem I had too. That is why I thought I need a replacement. What I fixed is that I open the box and insert several layers of paper underneath of the mother board then seal the box back. Now the keys feel more responsive when pressing. So far so good and will see how long it lasts.

See above I reply to Emporium, maybe you can try to fix it first.

Thnx for the comment. I'll take a look at that when I get a chance, but I don't think that is the problem on my unit. I don't have to press hard on the keys... And pressing harder and slowly does not make a difference. It is something strange.. When I am not too lazy, I may try to re-pair/re-learn the unit. I have a feeling it is something with the way the security codes roll.

I’ve had mine for over 8 years and haven’t changed the battery yet. I guess it depends how often you use it.

I don't personally use these, but see lots on sale on Kijiji for less than $30 that are brand new.
