Multi Code 2-Button Remote Control Transmitter 4120
Two button transmitter (remote control) for garage door opener models using Multi Code 300 Mhz receivers
To determine compatibility with your garage door opener, please look for a combination of the following features:
- Gray external radio receiver box present on back of garage door opener powerhead (motor mounted to ceiling of garage) - to see what the receiver looks like visit the page for the Multi Code receiver
- Antennae wire coming out of the receiver
- Remote controls you currently use say Multi Code on them and look like the model pictured.
If you do not have any remote controls, usually the fact that you can see the radio receiver box on the back of your garage door opener powerhead is enough to be sure this remote control will work for you.
If you cannot see the radio receiver or are not sure it is the same one we have pictured, we recommend that you install a new radio receiver/transmitter. The new radio gear will also make your garage door opener HomeLink compatible and features the new rolling code technology for added security. The one we recommend is our Universal Remote Control Kit
. It is quick and easy to install. Since it is an add-on receiver, you can continue to use any remote controls and keypads that are currently working with your garage door opener. For further information on the Universal Remote Control Kit
please click on the link or select HomeLink in the menu on the left side of your screen.
You may set your transmitter to any
code you desire but be sure that the code you set matches the code that
has been set on your radio receiver. The digital code is determined by
the positions of the 10 small switches numbered 1 through 10located in
the receiver and transmitter. Any combination of ON (CLOSED) or
OFF(OPEN) positions can be selected by using a small screwdriver or ball
point pen.(NOTE: The switches are in the “On” position when the side
next to the number is pressed in.) In setting your own personal code we
strongly urge that several coding schemes be avoided: ALL ON; ALL OFF; 2,
4, 6, 8, 10 ON; 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 ON.These positions are similar to our or
other manufacturer’s test positions, or are frequently used. Once the
code has been set, check the operation and replace the hatches.
