flash2pass automatic garage door opener

Anyone ever use a flash2pass system?

Once setup, all you have to do is double flash your high beam lights and it will open your garage door.

If you have one of these or something similar, what do you think?


Im in the market to buy a remote control system for my old garage door opener. This looked pretty cool

I just leave the garage door opener in my jacket pocket. When I drive up to my garage door, I just grab the pocket and push the button. Seems like the cheapest/easiest solution to me.

I'd be a little cautious about the system above since anyone can open your garage door just by flashing high beams at it.

on the 919 I just keep an opener in my pocket. on the FJR I am intergrating an opener into my controls since there is ample room to do so and plan on keeping it till the wheels fall off.

I would not be comfortable with an opener that allowed anyone to open my garage with a simple flick of the highbeams. Not at my new home closer to work at the old home the garage doors is still open as is every door unlocked even though we are not there.

Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.

actually that system inparticular is a module you install on the bike that gets it's siganl from the highbeam or anyother 12 volt sorce that can be switched on the bike or a car for that matter or anything else.

I think I may have to look into this for all my vehicles just to screw with any one eyeballing my stuff.

I've seen ones that are just a light sensor before and would open during thunder storms.

I'm still trying to run down one of these for my bike: Autoswitch - The Switch Eliminator | www.autoswitch.com

It doesn't require adding a module in the garage or anything, but so far I haven't actually found one.

+1, I keep a remote in my jacket pocket. Works well. I also have a wireless keypad on the outside of the garage that I can ride up to and don't have to get off the bike.

I like the above system from Marylandmike but I would be worried about the maintanance costs!! LOL!

Yeah. I would never install something that let just anyone in. You have to have a paired module. The remote just activates with any double tap of a 12v source.

We only have two remotes so I keep one in the truck and the other in my wife’s car. Luckily we have an outdoor keypad and I just pop the bike in neutral type in the code then ride the bike into the garage. I guess I work harder not smarter. I tried the opener in my pocket and it’s a sweet deal but I forget to put it back in my truck when I am not on the bike and then have to jump out of the truck and use the keypad. Either way I use the keypad might as well do it on the bike.

My wife got me one of these for my birthday. Install was a snap you just replace the garage door button in the house with their reciever module (which also has a button) and splice the transmitter into your high beam wires in the bucket. Took a few tries but there's plenty of room for the transmitter in there, I think I ziptied it at the top.

It works based on a transmission/receiving of a signal - same as your current clicker. It is not a light sensor or anything that you put on the garage door as some people's comments seem to hint at.

I love it. With only 2 remotes I was constantly moving mine back and forth from the car to the bike. Plus I'd always try and push the button in my jacket pocket as I was riding up so I didn't have to stop. Now it's alot easier with the f2p system. 2 on/offs with the high beams @ 100 ft range and it opens up.

Once you have the receiver in the garage you can buy only the transmitter and program them all to the same frequency if you have multiple bikes

I'd recommend it.

Holy crap, $80? Give me a regular garage door opener and I can slightly modify that thing to fire with the high beams. Seriously, you solder the button so it's always on and step your voltage to accept a 12v input, put an external ground wire on it and wire it in; that's it.

Yeah, the above requires you to pull your phone out, which, with gloves, means almost parking the bike anyway.

I just thought it was neat.

Since you have a hard on when you ride, your gloves are probably off anyway.

Hey. i have flash to pass and it is completely safe. It has a transponder that is hooked to your headlight high beams. When you flash them twice it powers the unit on your bike to communicate with the unit they give you as well in the garage. One unit cannot talk to another.
