▀▄ eas | Flash2Pass™ Garage Door Opener System!



You know your garage door remote. Maybe it’s clipped to your visor, or in your purse or your jacket pocket, or under the seat, or in the glove compartment, or stashed away in the console. Maybe it just drove away in the other car.

You know what the battery looks like, too, you replace it every year or so. It’s a nine-volt, or is it two AA’s? You better check before you buy new one. You might even worry about somebody swiping it and using it to get into your house.

We’ve solved these problems by electronically integrating the activation of your garage door opener remote into the high beam switch of your turn signal lever. A double flash of your headlight high beams opens or closes your garage door. <br>

Details:

- A small one time investment gets you the maintenance free system
- Less than half the price of HomeLink™ systems, especially in convertibles
- No remote transmitter to get lost or stolen
- No battery to buy or replace…Flash2Pass™ gets its power from your vehicle
- Digital encrypted signal and rolling code technology for ultimate security
- Quick and easy do-it-yourself installation
- Up to six transmitters may operate a single receiver
- Additional receivers may be installed elsewhere and programmed to your Flash2Pass™ equipped vehicle.
- Works with virtually any garage door opener manufactured since 1982

The Flash2Pass™ consumer products consist of the patented transmitter, and its corresponding receiver.

The transmitter is a radio frequency device that is mounted under the hood of the car. It is relatively small, approximately 2” x 2” x ¾” and is attached under the hood with either the enclosed screws, or the plastic zip tie. The wires are attached with quick crimp connectors to the headlight high beam positive wire and to the ground wire. The Flash2Pass™ transmitter is non-polarized so you can attach either wire to the headlight wires.

The Flash2Pass™ receiver is designed to replace the pushbutton inside your garage. If you have additional functions on your pushbutton that you would like to keep, the receiver can be installed next to your original pushbutton and “piggybacked” to it.



Features:

- A double flash of headlight high beams opens or closes garage door
- Digital encrypted signal and rolling code technology for ultimate security
- Quick and easy do-it-yourself installation
- Can also open and close gates
- Transmitter mounted under hood of car
- Up to 6 transmitters may operate a single receiver
- “Doggie Door” feature that allows the garage door to be stopped in a partially open state to allow pets to enter and exit the garage.

The Flash2Pass™ transmitter and receiver are packaged as a set that is pre-programmed at the factory, <img src="/images/vendors/f2p/f2pcontentssm.jpg" align="right">or they are available individually. For instance, if you had a two-car garage with one large door for both bays, you would buy one set and an additional transmitter. The additional transmitter would be installed in the second vehicle and the receiver programmed to accept it.

Say you had a vacation home with a garage door opener. You could get an additional Flash2Pass™ receiver for it and then program your car to it. That way, you wouldn’t have to remember to bring the remote with you. It will always be at your fingertips…both at home and on vacation.

Now, if you live in a gated community and the community installed the F2P Integrated Control Access System, you would be able to access the community gate, and your individual garage. We call this the “gate to garage” concept. Also if you worked in a place that had some sort of parking control and the F2P ICAS were in place, you again could use your Flash2Pass™ transmitter to gain access, assuming you were authorized and/or programmed into the receiver.

Installation is simple for the DIY type and should take no longer than 15 minutes

If you've seen the price of Homelink mirrors lately, it makes the F2P even sweeter.

Very cool. I had a similar product for my motorcycle. Sure beats getting off the bike to open the garage door!

Interesting note after using flashtopass. I was having reception issues and the door wouldnt open. I finally moved the receiver to the ceiling of my garage and out by the driveway. I should know tommorrow if this helps. The door opening was hit/or/miss before I did this, so I'm hoping this fixes the issues.

I have a liftmaster garage door that uses a 9 pin 3 setting (- + and 0) settings; will this work for it?

I haven't seen an opener the F2P hasn't worked with yet.

Craftsman 3/4 HP garage door open. Never had any problem closing the door, but opening it, well, thats another story. Still dont have my car back, so I can't tell ya yet if moving the receiver helped. One thing i can say, the street in front of my house is much lower than my house. I have a steep driveway, im wondering if that might cause issues.

Shouldn't cause any issues but then again it's just a matter of the range of the receiver.

I've never used the kit with that specific GDO, but a call to F2P may be able to clear things up.

I bought one of these from EAS, and it's a great product. I made a DIY too for all interested.

Ok. Moving the receiver did the trick. Picks up the transmitter way down the street now. Probably a combination of being behind alot of brick and being way above the street that was causing the problems. Recommend 100%.
