1.The fob that goes on your key ring to lock and unlock your car doors. Many of these fobs also arm and disarm a car alarm system.

2. The small controller that hangs off your car's sun visor to open and close the garage door

The fob that you carry on your keychain is actually a small radio transmitter. When you push a button on the fob, you turn on the transmitter and it sends a code to the receiver. Inside the car is a radio receiver tuned to the transmitter's frequency. It opens the door, truck, power sliding door or power liftgate when it recognizes the right frequency. Some remotes also operate remote starters on our cars.
