Abstract

A trainable transceiver is configured to include time base information regarding the length of time or the number of times the transceiver may be used to control a particular electronic device or system, such as a garage door opener. Accordingly, a user may configure the trainable transceiver for temporary use with the electronic device or system. Once the predetermined time period or number of uses has expired, access information (e.g., the frequency and control code for the electronic system) is erased from the transceiver. For example, a homeowner may wish to provide a delivery person with temporary access, such as a single use, to a garage door opener in order to access the garage of the home and make a delivery.
