Have you recently purchased a new opener or a remote for an existing opener? Programming your remote or keypad to your opener is simpler than you may think. Not all openers, remotes, and keypads are alike but in a few easy steps you should be well on your way to effortlessly opening your garage door.

Determine what opener you have

The first step in programming your remote or keypad is to determine the type of garage door opener that you have. It is important to ensure that the remote or keypad that you purchased is compatible with your opener. Be sure to get as much information about your opener as possible, such as the make and model number, before you make your purchase.

What about a universal remote? As wonderful as universal remotes may be, they are not 100% “universal”. Be sure to double check that your opener is compatible with the specific universal remote that you choose, especially if you have an older system.

LM Learn Button

Locate the learn button

All garage door openers have a learn button used to program your remotes/keypad.  The learn button will be a small button located on the opener itself; however, color, shape and location depend on the make and model of your opener. Be sure to check under the light cover, on the back, bottom, and sides of your opener. In most newer models, you can locate the learn button by following a small wire hanging from the back. Once you have located it you will be ready to program and/or purchase your remote.

Program your remote

The process to program your remote varies depending on the type of opener, but most use a similar process. Always check the instructions provided with your specific remote as some steps may vary slightly.

Generally, to program your remote, press and release the learn button on your opener which should cause the indicator light to blink. Once that light is blinking your opener is in “learn mode”. This will allow you to program your remote by pressing and releasing the button you will use to open your garage. Be sure to test that your remote is working properly by pressing the remote again to see if the door opens.

*Note: Pressing the learn button until the indicator light stops blinking will erase any remotes currently programmed to your system.

LM Keypad

Program your keypad

Programming your keypad will be a familiar process if you have ever programmed a remote. Similarly to your remote, press and release the learn button until the indicator light blinks. Once your opener is in “learn mode” you will be able to type in the desired code on your keypad. Some keypads require you to press the asterisk (*) or pound (#) symbol after your desired code or to enter the code a second time. As always, check the instructions provided with your keypad. Enjoy the easy access to your garage!
