This device eliminates time wasters for individuals by opening and closing their gates. You should know that choosing this device is very difficult. The choice depends on device programming. There are three models on the market:
switch programming: the mini-switches inside the remote controls must be operated. You must set the switch on the new one as on the old one to cause coding.
self-learning programming: you only have to put them side by side. Then, you must press the buttons on both remote controls so that the new one can take the data from the old one. It is recommended to use appliances of the same brand.
receiver programming: simply open your receiver and press a button inside and then press the remote control. Programming the receiver is not recommended as it can be locked by the manufacturer.
Your new remote control model must use the same frequency as the previous one. This is to ensure that your signal has a long range. The coding must be well understood by the receiver. Indeed, it can cause delays when sending signals.
