1. A movable barrier operator for being associated with a secured area, the movable barrier operator comprising:
a motor configured to be coupled to a movable barrier;
communication circuitry; and
a processor operatively coupled with the motor and the communication circuitry, the processor having a learning mode wherein the processor facilitates learning of information associated with a transmitter upon the communication circuitry receiving a radio frequency control signal from the transmitter;
the processor configured to cause the motor to move the movable barrier from a closed position to an open position upon the communication circuitry receiving a state change request from a computing device to facilitate a delivery to the secured area, the state change request associated with the delivery to the secured area;
the processor configured to inhibit learning of information associated with a new transmitter via the learning mode upon the communication circuitry receiving the state change request from the computing device; and
the processor configured to cause the communication circuitry to communicate an indication of a difference between a first learned transmitter quantity before the delivery and a second learned transmitter quantity after the delivery.
