Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SouthCarolina Product is as advertised
The product is exactly what it says it is.
A few items:
1. The key pad may arrive set for multiple doors vs a single door. Follow the directions for switching, very easy.
2. Your door may not provide enough power in the wall button wire for the receiver, there is an external power port and a generic power converter works just fine with the right tip.
3. I recommend you hard-wire the receiving unit in up by the garage door opener. Two reasons, A if you need the external power, there is probably an open plug next to the opener and B this places the unit closer to the external door and a shorter signal distance.

This should've been as easy as changing a light bulb but NOOOOOooooo!!
First the Clamp to go over the existing wires didn't work as designed. The pins inside of it were not centered so did not pierce the wire. SO, as suggested, I cut that off and tried to simply splice the 2 existing wires to the new button unit but it NEVER worked as designed for some reason..
How could something so simple be so useless?!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lee Not compatible with all openers.
I have a very old Genie screw drive opener and this device was not compatible. Customer support was helpful and sent another receiver thinking the first one was defective but the replacement unit had the same symptoms.
Conceptually, this device could be the perfect solution for many old openers but evidently not all of them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PleasedCustomer BUY IT
This was so simple that I was kicking myself for having not done it sooner. I bought a house with a detached garage that could only be entered through the garage door and the garage door had only one remote. I thought, if I could add a keypad to the exterior it would make entry way simpler, and give me to option to get additional transmitters as well.
The existing opener was pretty old (I'm going to guess at least 20 years), so having read some of the other reviews I was cautious that it might not work. I did have to remove the clip on feature because the wire from my opener was older and too fat, but it's super easy to just wrap two wires together. So ya...you wire them together and screw it into the wall and it's done. It's amazing. BUY THIS.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by return It was poor for this product
According to the comments from homedepot website, I thought this product was good.I bought it through internet. The result was disappointment. It was easy to install, but it did be hard to let it work. Following the instruction of original package, it could make it work. Next day, I called the company for helps. The technical professional could let it work and suggested to change Model G5K. I tried again and again before I returned it. It did finally work. I mounted it to the wall. But about one hour later, I tried it again. I quited to work again. I called the company support line before their working hour. No one answered the phone. So It looked it was bad product and bad service to me. I decided to return it back to Homedepot and find another reliable product. It was bad experience to me. Thanks.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Keith Small investment to upgrade features of a very old opener
Once installed, the unit works very well. The online description did not clearly state that a supplemental power supply might be required for older units. I had to contact the manufacturer to order the additional part which delayed installation one week. The programming directions do not clearly state that the default mode is multi-door requiring you to pass a door # at the end of the code transmit. Gave the appearance that the programming step failed. Had to disable multi mode, before the transmitter would send with just the passcode when # was pressed
