Do you carry remotes?

How do I program my remote?
The programming varies on the type of system you are using. If you remote has dip switches (located on the reverse side, where the battery is concealed), toggle up and down to match the setting of your current remote control or garage door opener. Most newer remotes use a learn button. To program, first locate and press and release the learn button on the rear side of the operator hanging from the ceiling in your garage. The learn button is either round (yellow, grey, white, red, or green) or square (red or purple) with a green LED light adjacent. Second, press and release the button on the remote. The receiver has now learned the code from the remote control. Press the smart button for any longer than 5 seconds (or until the LED light flashes and the receiver's memory has been erased).

Is there a universal remote that can operate any garage or gate opener?
There is no such thing as a remote that can operate any garage or gate opener. There are however, remotes that can operate on different frequencies, functioning with different brands such as the Liftmaster 375LM Universal remote.
