It is the 3 button Genie G3T-BX remote control garage door opener that is slated to be the Genie Company’s most popular remote transmitter for this year essentially because it is virtually compatible to and works well with old and new Genie garage door opener models. Besides, this Genie dual mode, dual frequency remote transmitter has far more advanced features than other models manufactured by the company. And, if we are to consider the large number of Genie garage door openers already sold and installed throughout the country from 1998 to the present, you can just imagine the voluminous number of spare units and replacement remote transmitters that the G3T can possibly fill. This remote transmitter will definitely be the company’s best seller and the reasons are rather obvious.
First, it must be noted that all the garage door openers manufactured and sold by the Genie Company prior to 2011 use its proprietary Genie Intellicode 1 while those manufactured from 2011 onwards use its new Intellicode 2. The G3T remote transmitter can operate in any of these modes. In fact one button can be set to operate under Intellicode 1 while the other button can be set to operate in the latest Genie Intellicode 2. On top of that, it can also be used with the Overhead Door Code Dodger products that were manufactured from 1996 to the present too.
Secondly, the unit operates in both the 390 MHz and 315 MHz frequencies – the frequencies almost all garage door openers commonly operate with. This only means anyone with a Genie garage door opener or an Overhead Door Code Dodger would surely not settle for no less than this top of the line remote transmitter in the event they end up needing a spare or a replacement unit. And, this is certainly quite a big number to fill.
Add to this the large number of homeowners who yet have to replace their aging and creaky garage door openers with quieter and safer models. It must be remembered that since 1993, garage door openers have been required to install a safety mechanism that would reverse the door in case something or someone happens to be in its path. A lot of these homeowners are do-it-yourselfers and they have been putting off replacing or rebuilding their garage doors for quite a long time now. Incidentally, Genie products are basically designed to cater to this DIY market. And, once they choose the Genie garage door opener kit, they are also likely to toss in a G3T transmitter or two along with it.
And look at the long list of other Genie remote transmitters the G3T can replace – the GIT-1, the GIT-2, the GIT-3, the ACSCTG Types 1, 2, and 3, the GIC90-1, GIC90-2 and GIC90-3, GMIC90-2 and GMIC90-3,TBSTG, the GMIC-3BL, GICT390-1, the OCDT-1, -2, and-3, the G2T-1, -2, and -3, the GICTD-1, and finally the GIFT390-1 and the GIT390-4. With such a long list of outdated genie remote transmitters it can replace, there is no doubt that the Genie G3T-BX remote transmitter is going to be the most popular remote of the Genie Company in 2013.
