Will this remote work with a safe-way R1500


@Lorraine Overcash Linn – The Mighty Mule is not on our compatibility list, we do not have instructions on how to program to that gate opener.

@ Jon – This will not work with Ghost Brand gate openers.

I just picked up one of these yesterday. What I liked about it is its called a garage door and gate opener, however I don’t see any info on it for setting it up to work with a gate opener. I am sure it will work just fine with my door opener but does it work with a Ghost controls brand gate opener? It would be nice to not need 2 controllers anymore.
