    You might want to check the batteries in your remote, or the connection to the drive.

    this happened to me when the new neighbors down the road reprogrammed their remote-- when they pressed it passing my house up it went. So yes, reset it to new settings.

    If all connections are working and batteries are not in need of change I would alter the code perhaps someone has a device in neighborhood that is interfering

    Oh I had that problem once when I lived in the burbs, builders who build homes the same use same brand, and neighbors would open/close their doors at odd hours or worst when I was away working. First I tried changing the codes, but that didn't work. So I had to order and install a little electronic board that cost about $65 to stop it. Visit your manufactures website, or call them, but first climb up on a ladder and get the model # and serial #.

    If you have an older opener with a programmable remote change the code in the remote and opener to match. Most newer openers have a rotating code module built in so the code changes automatically every time the door is opened and closed. I remember installing a new opener for a friend about 10 years ago. I programmed the codes with the numbers he gave me. After installing and programming, I stepped out of the garage to test it. Pressed the remote button. His and two other neighbors on his block doors opened. I quickly pressed the button and all the doors closed. Had to change the code on his remote and opener by one number. I panicked at the time but laugh when we talk about it now.

    Change your code. More than likely someone nearby has the same one

    Hate to say this, but criminals sometimes just drive around with garage remotes looking for garages that open. They do this several times over a period of time then stop. The homeowners think it was a glitch and when they don't suspect it, they're home is burglarized. That's why newer openers (past 20 years) and remotes have a rolling code.
