... and you are aware that the rolling codes are not unbreakable, right? Hard, yes; unbreakable, not.<p>The sequence of codes is pseudo-random, but must be predictable so the authenticator can validate it. It is possible (given sufficient time and effort) to try alternatives until a valid sequence is hit. This process can be much easier if you have access to a valid fingerprint (ie, a valid transmitted sequence).<p>The whole point of keys is not to prevent something from being stolen. Determined thieves can steal anything. The point of a key (physical or electronic) is to make it sufficiently hard (and/or slow) that the thieves will choose some other car/house/etc instead of yours.
