On Amazon review for this product someone wrote that it is possible for anyone to reset this unit to its factory settings. However, that is not a "security" problem, it's a "denial of service" issue. After reset, they would be able to reprogram the unit but it would not open the door - because you need to re-associate it with your door opener inside. So worst case you won't be able to open the door - not that someone will reprogram with their own finger and get in.
At least that's what the manual says.

Interesting. Could have tons of nerdtastic possibilities besides opening your garage I would imagine.

Well, at least I got to order this tool belt which was OOS when I tried to order it a few days ago, but was still in my cart and showed up as in stock just now.

"beware that it is alarmingly easy for ANYONE to do a factory reset of the device and enroll their own fingerprint!!! If you are looking for a SECURE option, this is not it! " - From Amazon Reviews.

Thanks...just ordered one. BTW, if you reset the device, it resets the opening capabilities...so the device becomes useless, until you re-associate it with your garage door. Stop the fear mongering.

Anyone else install this yet? The relay in the universal receiver clicks too fast to always operate the door opener. So mine works 6 out of 10 times. I'm trying to determine if the fault is with the receiver, the door opener or the installation.
