Merlin Remotes

These days all garage door openers come with remote controls. It is a convenience that many people take for granted until they are lost or broken! With remote control, you can enter and exit the garage without needing to open the door by hand. When you press the open button on the garage remote, it emits a radio frequency that will initiate the operating of the opener & open or close the garage door. However, should you lose or break the remote control, you will not be able to operate the door as quickly anymore and must instead open it by hand. So, be careful not to lose it. If something happens to your remote, you can purchase replacement remotes (from our Eden Roc Online Shop) & code them to your machine by following the remote coding instructions specific to your opener. You can find these instructions here:

How do the Remote Controls of Merlin Garage Door Opener Work?

Merlin remotes provide high-security remote control access. So, it prevents unauthorized access to the garage. With the help of code hopping technology, Merlin remotes have a code learning system in place. Thus, it is more accessible for you to code in or delete old or new remotes.

A code remote control ensures optimum security 2.0 and safety for the users. But if you have to delete the programming on the remote, you can hold down the Learn button to delete everything. This will work with all existing working remotes from the receiver.
