      My keyless entry worked for 7 months and stopped working. I called skylink support and no tech was available. Waited 2 days and still no return call. When I called them back they said replace the batteries (which wernt bad) so I spend 6 bucks for new ones and still don't work. I called them back and they want me to mail the unit to them and charge me for a repair..

      So 38 dollars + 6 more for batteries I didn't need for 7 months of use..

      Ill never buy another product from this company.....

      Got 2 products from skyline. None worked. Very complicated too setup. When you call customer technical support and you are lucky to get a call back, they will read to you the instructions in the guide.
