Programming the Genie GUK-BX Universal Wireless Keypad


1. How many different openers can you control with the Genie Universal Keypad? 

  • With the Genie Universal Keypad, you can control a combination of up to 3 different garage door openers. Each of the 3 openers can be programmed individually of the others so having multiple brands of openers controlled by a single keypad is not a problem.

2. Are any manufacturer settings of the Genie Universal Keypad preprogrammed?

  • No, the Genie Universal Keypad does not come pre-programmed with any
    specific manufacturer brands/specifications.

3. Does the Genie Universal Keypad have a pre-programmed PIN number?

  • No, the Genie Universal Keypad does not come with a pre-programmed PIN
    number. The PIN number for the keypad is set during programming.

4. What kind of batteries does the Genie Universal Keypad use?

  • The Genie Universal Keypad uses 2xAAAs. You can access the batteries by
    removing the battery cover on the front lower portion of the keypad.

5. Why does the keypad beep every time I press a button?

  • The Genie Universal Keypad will emit a tone each time a button on the keypad is properly pressed. This gives the user an audible sound to confirm their button
    the press has been received by the keypad.

6. Why does the Genie Universal Keypad operate the door without the PIN?

  • The Genie Universal Keypad will stay active for 15 seconds after the door has
    moved for security reasons (should you need to move the door again quickly).

7. What openers are compatible with the Genie Universal Keypad?

  • Control the most popular brands of garage door openers such as Genie®, Overhead Door®, Chamberlain®, Linear®, Wayne Dalton®, plus many more! Over time, we will implement additional manufacturers which means the
    compatibility list can and will change. You can use this link to find the most up-to-date compatibility chart.

8. Will the Genie Universal Keypad work with any other brands/specifications other than what is on this list?

  • For rolling code brands/specifications, no, the keypad will not work on any other brands/specifications other than what is listed. For dip switch
    brands/specifications, it is possible if they are on the same MHz, however,
    without proper testing of individual units, this cannot be confirmed. Also, please
    remember, Genie operator accessories should only be used on products
    produced 1993 and after that have functional safety sensors.

9. Does the Genie Universal Keypad use dip switches?

  • The Genie Universal Keypad does not use physical dip switches, but it does use
    “virtual dip switches” – or dip switch codes created by using specific button
    presses on the keypad. Once in the mode to receive dip switch input, the user
    will press 1=UP, 2=MIDDLE, and 3=DOWN to represent the location of trinary dip switches or 1=UP, 2=DOWN for binary dip switches.

10. How do I clear out the Genie Universal Keypad and return it to the factory

  • Press both the PROGRAM & UP/DOWN keys at the same time and hold for 5
    seconds (a tone will sound) - then release both buttons. The green LED will flash
    and go out. Perform this task first before setting the PIN or at any time the keypad needs to be reset to its factory default.

11. When working with Chamberlain®/LiftMaster®/Craftsman® Yellow Learn Button units, I am having trouble programming the universal keypad to the operator head/receiver.

  • When programming a Chamberlain/LiftMaster/Craftsman operator with the yellow learn button, be sure to follow the specific programming instructions for these units. After preparing the keypad to receive a yellow learn button unit, on the garage door opener:
    1. Press the yellow LEARN button for 2-3 seconds and then release
    2. On the keypad, press and release the UP/DOWN button once every 2
    seconds until the garage door opener operates. Let it run until it stops.
    TIP: As soon as the opener activates, DO NOT press any additional buttons until the opener stops running.
    3. With the keypad backlight still flashing, repeat steps 1 and 2 above.
    TIP: As soon as the opener activates, DO NOT press any additional buttons until the opener stops running.
    Programming is complete.

12. What is the trick when working with Marantec® products?

  • If there are no other remotes or keypads being used with the Marantec opener,
    follow the Genie Universal Keypad instructions to program.
    If you already have a Marantec remote(s) paired to the operator and you program the Genie Universal Keypad, the keypad will work the opener, but the existing remote(s) will not.
    In order to use a Genie Universal Keypad with a Marantec opener, you will need
    to use a Genie Universal Remote as well. The TEACH & PAIR METHOD in
    universal remote instruction can use the universal keypad you just paired to the
    opener as the ‘existing operational remote’ and learn the proper code from the
    keypad. When the TEACH & PAIR METHOD instructions call for the existing
    operational remote, use the paired universal keypad in its place.

13. When working with any of the dip switch style units, do I still need to
program the keypad to the opener head?

  • After entering the converted dip switch code into the keypad, there is no need to program to the opener head. When the UP/DOWN key is pressed, the opener will operate, and programming is complete.


Ask a Question
  • Bought a guk-r Universal keypad. Can't get it to work on my Wayne Dalton 3213 opener. 303mhz. Are they not compatible. Tried several ID codes.

    That is correct, unfortunately the Universal Wireless Entry Keypad GUK-BX ( is not compatible with 303 Mhz, it is only compatible with Wayne Dalton openers on the 372 (372.5) Mhz frequency.

  • Why do I have to press the password again when I close the garage door

    The keypad is designed to have to enter the PIN whether opening or closing the door. So that is normal functionality.

    Thank you.

  • Will this work with a Genie Pro Screw Drive with Intellicode and Series II electronics? The motor head does not state the Mhz.....only 60Hz. Learn button is BLUE.

    Yes, the Universal Wireless Entry Keypad GUK-BX will work with this Intellicode model, this is a universal keypad so it will also work older Genie models and other brands.  You can also use Wireless Keyless Entry Keypad GK-R  if you are not planning on using the keypad with other brand garage or older fixed code Genie openers this would be a better replacement.

  • We purchased the genie universal series wireless keypad to replace our existing keypad. We programmed it without issues but then our remotes stopped working once we programmed the keypad. We went back and programmed our remotes but then the keypad stopped working! Help!!

    It sounds like you may have went above the total allowed amount of devices.  To remedy this issue you will need to clear the memory of your unit.  On Genie products you can hold down your learn code button until the led light stops blinking to clear, then reprogram all devices.  If you have another brand, consult your manual or the manufacturer for clearing instructions.
