Why Does My Garage Door Remote Have 3 Buttons?

3 Button Remotes

Do you find yourself saying, “I only have one opener – why do I have a remote with multiple buttons?

Here’s why:

Most homes have the traditional single or double-car garage; however, more homes are being built with multiple garage doors and/or entry gates.  Also, it makes it possible to control your kids or parents openers from your personal remote. Now days, most manufacturers provides multi-button remotes to accommodate these different devices; therefore eliminating the need to have several remotes.

(An easy analogy:  your TV and the coffee table that overflows with remotes!  One to turn it on, one for the cable box, one for the game box, for the Blue Ray…) The same applies to your door openers, gate, etc.)

1 Button Remote

You do; however, have options. If you’re only in need of a one-button remote, simply visit our showroom where we stock several makes and models of remotes and purchase the one that is compatible.  Either way, simply assign and program each button for each device.  (Please check with your specific opener manual for different manufacturer instructions). Or, if you prefer, allow one of our professional technicians to come out and take care of your door or opener repairs or needs.

(Note: Programming openers at another address (parents, etc) would incur additional service fees. Please ask showroom sales staff or your technician for information.)
