Remote Receiver Information

How Does A Remote Receiver Work

Add on receivers allow you to upgrade an older garage door or gate opener to work with a new series of remote controls. A garage door receiver wires into your garage door motor, using a standard 2-core wire. The receiver then listens for your remote control and when the button is pressed, opens your garage door. This does not affect the existing remote controls at all.

This is a fantastic way to upgrade your remote controls without having to buy a new garage door opener.

What Remote Receiver Do I Need?

It all depends on what remote controls you are planning on using!

If you wish to use the ATA PTX6 or B&D TB6 remote controls, we recommend the FHCRX-2v2.

If you want to use the Merlin E960 or Merlin E970M, we recommend the Merlin E860 waterproof receiver.

The Auto Openers Universal Receiver will allow you to operate many different brands of remote controls!
