Overhead Door Makes Improvements to the Wireless Keyless Entry
Beginning in April 2017, Overhead Door changed the amount of time it took for the wireless keyless entry (Part # OKP-BX) to power off after the pass code was entered. Previously, the wireless keyless entry would allow for a 30 second window before powering off.
The new time frame for the wireless keyless entry to power off is 15 seconds. The new version of the wireless keyless entry will be stamped version 1.0.10 on the back of the keypad.
Based on customer feedback, Overhead Door determined that 30 seconds was too long of a period of time before powering off. Customers would often be confused why the wireless keyless was still active after the pass code was entered. Customers would think that the keyless entry was not working correctly because after you entered the pass code, you could press any button to activate the garage door.
As a result, Overhead Door reduced the window of time the wireless keyless entry is active after the pass code is entered to 15 seconds.
This window of time where the keypad is still active is a safety feature built into the software that is designed to stop the garage door by pressing any button after the pass code is entered in case of an emergency such as something being stuck under the garage door.
It is easy to determine if this safety feature is active and the garage door can be stopped by pressing any button.
The keypad is active while the LED light behind the keypad buttons is turned on. When the LED light behind the keypad buttons is on, you can press any button to stop the garage door. Once the LED light behind the keypad buttons is off, the safety feature is off and you must enter the pass code to activate the garage door.
