The example photos below show how to connect the GarageMate receiver to your Sears and Craftsman garage door opener. For your reference we have also included links to some Sears and Craftsman 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 Sears and Craftsman 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.
If your Craftsman was made after 2011, check if it has a yellow learn-button. If the button is yellow then it will NOT work with GarageMate. But if it is any other color (e.g., red, blue, purple, green, orange, black, gray, etc.) then it will work fine with GarageMate. Examples of incompatible models are Model #54990 3/4 HP, Model #1D7675, 139.30437, and the 139.53985(DM)
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 Sears and Craftsman 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.
