I’ve bought the KIT-1 (see link). I was very happy to see that I’ve gotten the 202U v6 version (latest and greatest supposedly) and was all exitement when I got it to work with my garage door opener. Neat setup, everything worked really well, until I tried to simplify my life by having only 1 set of remotes.
I have another garage opener (Liftmaster-1265LM-A2070M) that has the Security+ feature (transmits using a 390Mhz frequency rolling code) and I was trying to pair the TX-134 remote to it so I only need 1 remote to open both garages. The door opener has a red programming button and when reading on the support site, I understood that it will work and program similarly to the original remotes (I looked at the videos and everything). Nothing.
I also have a gate with a LiftMaster Elite SL3000-UL, also with a red programming button and that one (according to the manual) transmits using a 315Mhz frequency.
Tried again the pairing process as indicated and NOTHING!
I’ve also tried the HomeLink on one of my cars (2017 Honda CRV), and NOTHING! Erased, re-tried, followed the instructions from some other posts on this site… NOTHING!
Then I’ve said, ok… can I use the “OLD” remote (a LiftMasters 973LM) to program the 202U unit, and just ditch the TX-134 remote… nope… the OLD remotes won’t pair (for some reason) with the 202U, enven when it was advertised that 202U would recognize 315, 390, 413 and don’t know how many other frequencies, rolling codes, etc. (all beautiful in paper).
So I’m wondering what’s the “magic sauce” with 202U that is not compatible with anything or I’m just missing a “programming feature” (clicking a sequence of buttons, switches,etc.) that needs to be done in order to get something to work at all and achieve my end goal which is:
- have 1 set of remotes that can control the 202U, the Liftmasters garage opener and Gate opener.
I’m attaching pictures (only 1 at this point as I’m a new user) of the garage opener. I have more for the gate and the remote I have so you can see and assess if I’m missing something.
I’m not regretting the buy, I just want to make it work the way it should.
