I recently purchased a Universal Remote Control Conversion Kit for my garage door. IT is a 100 Billion Code Rolling system receiver with two remote system made by Craftsman. The model # is 139.53683
After following the instructions to install and to recode the transmitters, I was able to successfully use the remote from within my garage.
But the effective range is only about 10 feet!!!!
The remote does not work from 15 feet - just outside my garage with the door shut. It works just fine when I am less than 10 feet away with no obstructions in between.
The gigantic ONE-PAGE manual that came with the system does not state anything about extending the range / power output of the remote or increasing the amplification of the signal received on the receiver unit.
Does anyone have an idea as to how I can get remedy the situation?
