How to Program a LiftMaster Remote for an Elite Gate

Operating as a subsidiary of the Chamberlain Group, Liftmaster is a popular manufacturer of automatic garage door openers and gate operators for residential and commercial customers. Liftmaster Elite series gate operators are controlled by Chamberlain-Liftmaster Security Plus remote controls. Before your remote can be used to operate the gate operator, the operator must be programmed to accept commands from the remote transmitter. Programming a Liftmaster remote to your Elite series gate operator can be done in seconds.

Step 1

Examine your Liftmaster Elite gate operator to locate the "Learn Xmitter" button.

Step 2

Press and release the "Learn Xmitter" button; the adjacent LED indicator will illuminate.

Step 3

Press the remote control button that you want to use to control your Liftmaster gate operator; the LED indicator will flash and the gate operator alarm will chirp twice to confirm successful programming.

Step 4

Program a keyless entry PIN for your gate operator. Press the "Learn Xmitter" button once; the adjacent LED indicator will turn on.

Step 5

Choose a four-digit personal identification number and enter it into the gate opener's wireless keyless entry keypad. Press the "Enter" button to save the PIN into the keypad's memory; the gate operator alarm will chirp twice if the PIN has been programmed correctly.
