Secure. Simple. Compatible.
In 1989, the inventor of the Flash2PassTM system, Chris de Janasz, needed a garage door remote that fulfilled those three qualities. He was disappointed by traditional button remotes, finding them often in need of replacement and an unwieldly addition to his motorcycle. Chris began developing his own remote and, in 1990, he successfully filed a patent for his invention; while the size of a football, his design was still superior to the traditional remote. Over the years, he has streamlined the design and technology to create the quality product available today: Flash2PassTM.
Today, Flash2PassTM is fully optimized for unsurpassed performance. The product is sold by Flash to Open LLC, a team of engineers, financial whizzes, bikers, tinkerers, marketing gurus, and business students. Based in Charlottesville, Virginia, our team works tirelessly to ensure Flash2PassTM is the leading choice for American motorcyclists due to its ease of installation and use, safety, and superior compatibility.

All customers are welcome – as Flash to Open LLC’s products have evolved, their applications have expanded beyond motorcycles to include cars, gates, multi-door garages, and more!

In one month, my sister spent $100 on two garage door remotes – one found itself in a 2-year-old’s glass of juice, and the other found a second life as a dog’s chew toy. This launched my years-long project to develop a remote that can’t be lost, stolen, or chewed on. As the product development progressed, I realized that I love interacting with motorcycle users – especially current and future Flash2Pass users! When I’m not handling sales or complex technical support, I enjoy spending time doing anything that gets me out on the water.
My path to Flash to Open began when I chose to start my own business after graduating from college. This led to years of entrepreneurship that included my founding a company, retiring from that company, and becoming a Senior Entrepreneur in Residence at the University of Virginia’s Innovation Laboratory. Flash2Pass excites me because I like motorcycles and people who ride them, and I view Flash to Open as a chance to enhance their experience while having fun. When I’m not mentoring young entrepreneurs or installing Flash2Pass on my own vehicles, I spend as much time as I can with my wife, three children, and my lawn.
Working with Flash to Open gives me the chance to help innovators and motorcycle riders. As an attorney, I focus on protecting our company’s inventions to ensure that we are the premier option on the market. As a gadgets enthusiast, I enjoy supporting new technology that makes motorcycle riders’ experiences safer and more carefree. When I’m not traveling to motorcycle expos or attending meetings on Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my wife and two children.
I'm the EE who likes to get involved in a bit of everything and that is exactly what I get to do at Flash to Open. I work with the team to develop and launch new products, respond to customer concerns, and anything else required to improve the experience of our customers, suppliers, and team. I find entrepreneurship a fun and exhilarating ride. When I'm not having fun with the team, I'm enjoying life with my husband and two teenagers, running marathons, or walking my dog in the woods.
At Flash to Open, I'm responsible for translating the brand to the public. I manage our website, social media, email, and other marketing programs. When I’m not thinking of the next best way to get our products out there, I work full time as a digital marketer for an agency and run a Youtube channel and blog about beauty and fashion.
Thanks for visiting our site! I might have had some part in getting you here. That’s my role – I help to communicate the awesome benefits of Flash to Open to everyone I can, including yourself! I love Flash to Open because of the community it has introduced me to. Everyone rides for his or her own reason, and I think it’s so cool hearing how people from all different walks of life end up on a bike. When I’m not writing for the blog or posting to social media, I live up in NYC working my way into the music industry!
