Garage Door Opener Remotes: A Buyer’s Guide to Genie® Remotes

“Dad, what are you doing?,” you say as you walk out of your house to a strange sight: the family sedan is sitting sprawled open on the driveway – all four doors wide open and trunk popped. “Oh, I am looking for the garage door opener remote,” your father growls as he drags himself unceremoniously out of the back seat. He grumpily sits down on the ground and stairs at his feet, looking dejected. “No luck. Guess I will just have to use the keypad from now on,” he says.

“Why don’t you just get a universal remote?”, you ask. “Those never work properly,” your father grumbles. You grin and say, “Genie® has some really great options that will work with your garage door opener, some of which are smart phone enabled. Why don’t we go look through the buyer’s guide,”

    Hi Jesse,
    The Model ACSCTG Type 1 remote (single button looks like a tombstone) is no longer available. For a new remote you would need to upgrade to one of the above as mentioned in the article. Thank you!

    I’m located in Glendale California 91206. Is there a local Genie Dealer that I can purchase Modal # ACSCTG TYPE1 and have the Dealer program the remote? I would like to take my remote into the Dealer and have the program duplicated.
