How To Program Your Garage Remote

This is something we get a lot of call for, so we've created the guide for how to program your new remote. Everyone wants to know how they can install their new garage remote, whether they purchased it off us or not. Most remotes should be able to be programmed easily within 1-2 minutes. If it is taking longer you have probably selected the wrong remote and need to get in touch via email with our support team here.

Firstly, all remotes purchased from the Remote Warehouse will come with full programming instructions. This means when you receive your garage remote via courier it will have everything with it ready to program it straight into your garage door motor.
