I don't know why I am continuing, but never say die. A thief can not steal the car if he breaks in, but if there is a Genie garage door opener in the pocket/glove box etc, he can steal that. And, with the internet and your plate number, he can find where you live. Bingo! He can let himself into your residence.
My opinion, obviously not shared by you, but if you wish to continue with more "what if's" lets use e-mail and save the rest of the people on the board.
Have a great weekend.
: :...by having to use the key, nobody can get into your house without the key to the car, even if they do break in - that is engineered into the system as a safety feature
: I really don't see how safety is enhanced by requiring a key to use the UGDO.
: Case 1: car is garaged:
: Someone who breaks into a garage where the car is does not need the UGDO to open the garage door right?
: Case 2: car is not in the garage:
: Someone breaking into the car would set off the alarm in presumably a much more conspicuous drive way than going in through a side door or something to the garage which may or may not have an alarm.
: The UGDO is not useful to a would be thief since access is protected by the the car alarm which is presumably as good or better than the garage security.
