Replacement Garage Door Opener

Perfect wireless remote replacement for any remote garage door openers (I attached mine to the inside garage wall to replace two hard wired openers), or perfect inside vehicles to cover two garage doors in one unit. The two doors can be programmed differently and works for almost all door openers. My application was for two 15 year old Stanley garage door openers. Only issue was understanding the number of 'clicks' to input to designate the particular manufacturer one has. When you select one of the unit's switches to program by clicking it, that is one of the clicks the instructions then ask you to repeat for the manufacturer you have (in my case 16 clicks for Stanley). In error I kept putting the 16 clicks in after I clicked the switch I wanted to program (which made the number 17 and it did not work). Once that error was recognized I simply programmed each of the unit's two switches for each of my two door openers by copying the 10-12 'dip switch' settings from each of the original door openers onto the Chamberlain unit's internal 'dip switches' (you repeat this process for each garage door opener). The 10-12 'dip switch' settings are visible on the original garage units or inside the original hand held units (at least for my Stanley products). Entire process took 15 minutes once I wrote down the original door opener 'dip switch' settings. I'm totally satisfied, great for the price, size and utility!
