As previously discussed Security+ 2.0 openers (the ones with the yellow “learn” button) do not support the regular wall push buttons and instead rely on the proprietary serial protocol. Connecting any third party controller to such openers requires a work-around involving a native remote.
The steps are:
- find a remote that works with your garage opener
- open the remote and locate the button that controls the door
the most common type of the button used in the remotes looks like this:
As shown the pins on the opposing sides are permanently connected so 1 & 2 are the same and 3 & 4 are the same.
solder two wires to the button’s leads (e.g. pins 1 & 3) so Garadget can electronically “press” it. The wire that normally comes in the kit may be too rigid for this, so a softer kind is preferred if available.
connect two wires on the other end to the blue terminal in the back of Garadget
If done correctly, the relay in the Garadget will now “press” the button on the remote and activate the door.
