At first, I thought this product was silly when I was asked to review it, but after installing it (which is relatively easy) and using it, I love it, especially when its freezing out, and you just want to roll right into the garage.
F2P Technologies makes a secure, easy way to activate your garage door opener from the seat of your motorcycle. Rather than carrying a bulky remote, F2P Technologies has a system that includes a transmitter that’s powered by your bike’s battery through the headlight wiring. The receiver either replaces your existing garage door wall switch, or can be piggybacked to work in conjunction with it. Once installed, two flicks of the high-beam switch delivers a radio frequency to the receiver that opens the garage door.
The F2P system uses digitally encrypted rolling code technology that emits a secure signal, with a limitless number of coding combinations thwarting break-in attempts. Additional transmitters can be installed in other vehicles and programmed to work with one receiver. The small, waterproof transmitter can be secured inside your motorcycle’s headlight shell, under the fairing, or in another hidden location on the bike. Make sure to choose a location away from moving parts and excessive heat.
Heres a quick glance at how easy it is to install the receiver on your motorcycle
