Installing Your Own Garage Door Remote

Manual opening and closing of your garage door is really a hassle which is why garage doors controlled by remotes and other openers are one of the useful things that your house must have. With the use of garage remotes, you can access closing and opening your door without the need to get out of your vehicle. But due to the fact that most garage doors are portable and small, they are easily misplaced and broken.

For new garage door owners and others with difficulties installing a garage remote, I provided procedures to install it yourself.

First of all when working with the door, closed it first. Of course you would want to try if the remote can open your garage door so closing it is necessary and also because most buttons are located at the door itself.

Check the batteries of the garage remote. Varying versions of remote may require a specific battery. Use the correct number and kind of battery so that the remote will work accordingly.

Any remote will have a program option. The button is usually located under the device. Sometimes it there is a sliding part of the remote where buttons can be found. To know if you programmed the remote, there will be a light signal.

In your garage door, locate and press the "learn" or "smart" button. It is often found in the middle of the garage door.
