My genie garage door opener keypad bakes in the afternoon sun, fades, blisters and delaminates. Any visually acceptable ideas on a fix? Genie does not offer a weather or sunshield for the KEP-1 keypad
An easy visually pleasing solution would be to visit your local hardware or electronics store and look for a weather resistant box with a lid similar to the following (2-Gang Rectangle Plastic Electrical Box shown bellow) :
I couldn't find any dimensions but something of this nature will protect the keypad from the elements. It will require you to do some custom fitting ie: removing the keypad, mounting the box, running the ribbon through and then securing the keypad, but will definitely do the job.
Almost everything will eventually fade if left in direct sun light for years. Outside of cosmetic problems, I'd be concerned about batteries leaking or exploding.
Your best bet might be to relocate the keypad to another location like the other side of the garage.
