Garage door remote – Many garage door openers function using infrared signals associated with radio frequencies. Universal remotes that possess the ability to learn through a received beam from another infrared device can also learn codes from garage door openers. This is often used with comprehensive home automation systems that total home control desired. Transferring these codes to a remote takes only a few minutes.
Turn specific to the universal remote control learning process. Consult the garage door remote manual for specific button presses to begin this sequence. Set the garage door opener and the universal remote control so that the IR sender on the opener and the receiving sensor at one end of the universal parallel to one another and no more than 3 inches from each other.
Press the button on the universal remote that you want to respond to the main button used on the garage door opener. After “learn” light or indicator lights or flashes, press the corresponding button on the garage door opener for two seconds. Wait until the universal garage door remote recognizes the command before proceeding. Repeat the process for the other two buttons. You will have three separate buttons on the universal remote control that correspond to the three on the garage door opener.
