Call Suncoast. Very easy to deal with.

I added a garage remote switch , but I went unmarked so it is stealth.
Found the switch on ebay for $15. Make sure you get the correct finish on the switch, they come matte and glossy

I used a homelink remote and powered it form the car phone connector and used the switched power so it is only active when the key is on.
That way if someone broke into the car, they could not open my garage without a key to the car
