    Can anyone tell me what the voltage requirements are for a switch that
    will be used to replace an existing inside the house garage door opener
    manual switch?

    I have purchased a replacement, and I understand that the line coming
    from the garage door opener is basically a low voltage unit. I've
    purchased what is a door bell ringer switch, but it's rated at up to 16
    volts. Will this work for what I want to do?

    The Garage Door opener is a Sears Craftsman/Chamberlain unit.

    Thanks,

    Danny

    It will work fine.

    That's what I bought and used. My kids kept losing their house key so I
    install a hidden switch to the garage doors.

    Sears has an wireless touchpad remote that is programable to your favorite
    code. Takes a 9v battery. Check their web site to see which model you
    needed.

    I would not even consider the wired models any more.
