The example photos below show how to connect the GarageMate receiver to your Merlin garage door opener. For your reference we have also included links to some Merlin user manuals. Note if you can’t immediately find your wiring terminals, sometimes they are behind the translucent lightbulb cover.
Even if your exact model isn’t referenced on this page, GarageMate will work as a remote control for most residential Merlin garage door openers. You simply connect the GarageMate wires in parallel to your wall switch. GarageMate will work fine even if you reverse the wires. We color code the wires simply for convention but they are electrically equivalent.
There are no reported cases of incompatibility between GarageMate and Merlin garage door openers.
Below are some random wiring examples that maybe helpful. Note the photo show the terminals before the wires from GarageMate are connected. Those terminals are designed to hold multiple wires so please leave your existing wires in place so that your existing wall button/console will continue to work just fine. Most garage door openers have similar terminals.
GarageMate is the best selling Android and iPhone remote control App for Merlin garage door openers. GarageMate uses Bluetooth®4.0 technology making it more reliable, more secure, and faster than SMS(text message) or Wifi/Internet based remote controls.
