Buyer’s Guide – Wall Consoles and Push Buttons for Genie Garage Door Openers

Safety tip: Locate the wall console or push button: within sight of door, at a minimum height of 5 feet so small children cannot reach it, and away from all moving parts of the door.

 Note: Wall Consoles and Push Buttons are made to be used inside your garage.  For exterior access you will need to use Genie keypads.

 

Can I have both a push button and wall console for my one Genie garage door opener?

Yes, but you cannot have two Series II items (Series II Push Button and Series II Wall Console) running parallel.  However, if you do have a Series II Push Button and wish to add a wall console, you could add the Wireless Wall Console or Universal Wireless Wall Console - depending on what is compatible with your Genie garage door opener.  

 

Can I have multiple wall consoles for my one Genie garage door opener?

Yes, but you cannot have more than one Series II Wall Consoles wired to your Genie garage door opener.  If you do have a Series II Wall Console, you could add a Universal Wireless Wall Console or a Wireless Wall Console – depending on which is compatible with your opener.

 

Can I have multiple push buttons for my one Genie garage door opener?

Yes, but you cannot use more than one of the Series II Push Buttons.  If you have a Series II Push Button, you can add a Universal Push Button.  You can add as many Universal Push Buttons as you would like.

@Boris – Your option would be to install another Series III wall console.

Stephanie Millage

Hello,
I have a series 3 wall button console. I’d like to add a second wall button. Can I use a generic wall button and simply piggy back the wiring from the console to the basic button? If not, please advise the best connection process. Will a generic button work, if not what kind of button do I need to use for this?

Thanks

Boris

@ Dave – You could use the Universal Wireless Wall Console or the Series II Wall Console.
