Compact and convenient, this remote can operate up to four garage door openers or gate receivers from the most popular brands. With pre-programmed settings and an exclusive “Teach \u0026amp; Pair” feature, this remote is a simple and ready-to-use option for multiple opener control needs. No larger than the average key fob, the compact design is perfect for backpacks, purses, and pockets. Every Genie 4-button universal remote comes with a visor clip, keychain attachment, and a sure grip rubberized edge for your convenience. The Genie universal garage door opener remote is unique because it is designed to “Teach \u0026amp; Pair” your existing garage door opener remote. This programming process is patented by Genie and is designed to make this one of the easiest garage door openers remote setups available. To program using this method, you simply place the Genie Universal Remote into ‘Teach \u0026amp; Pair mode’ - you then press a button on the existing working remote while the Genie Universal Remote ‘listens’. The Genie Universal Remote is then able to repeat back what it heard, thus mimicking your existing garage door opener remote transmission. Once it is paired there are only a couple more quick steps to ensure that your new Genie universal garage door opener remote is ready to use in your garage.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul class=\"list\"\u003e\n\u003cli class=\"list__item\"\u003eUniversal - compatible with most garage door opener and gate receiver brands sold in the USA\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli class=\"list__item\"\u003eCompact - \u003cspan\u003eSmall enough to fit in your hand \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003ewith easy-to-use buttons,\u003c\/span\u003e no larger than a car’s key fob\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli class=\"list__item\"\u003eReady-to-use - 4 buttons are preset to the most popular manufacturers right out of the box - or easily reprogram them to your desired button layout \u003cspan\u003ewith \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003eLED light for easy programming\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli class=\"list__item\"\u003eExclusive \"Teach \u0026amp; Pair\" programming feature makes set up quick and easy\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli class=\"list__item\"\u003eVersatile - mix-and-match up to four different (or same) gate and garage door opener brands on one remote\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli class=\"list__item\"\u003eLED light provides visual cues to make programming quick and easy\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli class=\"list__item\"\u003eConvienient- Key ring loop and visor clip are both included\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli class=\"list__item\"\u003eRubberized grip edge\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli class=\"list__item\"\u003eDesigned to accommodate most makes and models of garage door openers produced after 1993 with functional safety sensor systems\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli class=\"list__item\"\u003eUS-based technical support assistance available six days a week by phone, live chat or email\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli class=\"list__item\"\u003eModel GU4TG-R\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1470\/8272\/files\/universal-remote-callouts_480x480.jpg?v=1575660289\" alt=\"Four Button Universal Garage Door Opener Remote, program each button to a different door or gate\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c!-- TABS --\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003eReviews\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003eProgramming Instructions\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eUniversal Remote Instructions\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1470\/8272\/files\/Warning_480x480.png?v=1574187896\" alt=\"Warning\"\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eTHINGS TO KNOW BEFORE STARTING:\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e- During programming, the garage door opener may operate.

  • Each Genie Universal Remote comes standard with BOTH a visor clip or keychain option inside every box for maximum convenience.

3- Are the buttons on the Genie Universal Remote pre-programmed?

  • For rolling code brands/specifications, no, the remote will not work on any other brands/specifications other than what is listed on the compatibility chart.

7- How do I clear out the Genie Universal Remote and return it to factory settings?

  • If you used the ‘QUICK START METHOD’: You must clear these, in the same manner, that you would clear original transmitters from the garage door opener's powerhead. Please consult your opener manual for instruction. 

    If you used the ‘LEARN METHOD’ or ‘TEACH & PAIR’ (‘cloning’): On the universal remote, press and hold down button #3 while pressing button #4 - four times. The blue LED will give a long blink and then go out. 

    If you have only one opener, you may also (for all methods) simply program over of what has previously been done.

8- When I press the universal remote buttons excessively, sometimes the white LED lights with every button press and the remote doesn’t seem to be responding.

  • Leave the remote untouched for approximately 2 minutes or remove the battery and re-insert.

9- What is the “Teach & Pair” (or “cloning”) feature and what do I need to do to use it?

  • The “Teach & Pair” (or “cloning”) feature is just another option offered to create an additional remote. To use the “Teach & Pair” (or “cloning”) feature for programming, an existing operational remote is required. The user can put the Genie Universal Remote into a ‘pairing mode’ – the user then presses a button on the existing working remote while the Genie Universal Remote “listens”. The Genie Universal Remote is then able to repeat back what it heard, “cloning” your existing remote transmission. Programming the remote to the opener head is still required to complete the process for rolling code products.

10- I am having trouble with the “TEACH & PAIR” method – the universal remote does not seem to recognize the operational remote transmission.

  • Be sure to vary the distance between the universal remote and the operational remote. Try touching them together, also try up to 4” apart. Always put the operational remote to the side of the universal transmitter with button numbers 1 and 3 for the best results. See the PDF version below for more information.

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

    1. Press the yellow LEARN button for 2-3 seconds and then release 
    2. On the remote, press and release the pre-set button OR the button you just programmed once every 2 seconds until the garage door opener operates. Let it run until it stops. 
    TIP: Allow the LED light on the universal transmitter to stop flashing before your next button press. 
    3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 above. 
    4. Test the button - programming is complete.

12- When working with Marantec® products, what is the best method to program with?

  • If you have no other remotes or keypads that you are using with the operator, the LEARN method will work and you will program to the head as the instructions indicate. If you have additional remotes and/or keypads that you use with the operator, you should use the TEACH & PAIR method only to alleviate the risk of interfering with products already programmed and working. For this scenario, you will not program the remote to the operator's head.
