Wireless Keypad

A friend gave me a Genie wireless keypad. I have a Raynor Pilot opener. Can the Genie keypad be programmed to work with the Raynor? Thanks.

Unfortunately, no. Each company uses their own proprietary programming to create their rolling code technology. Even universal remotes do not work with all systems.

Some manufacturers change suppliers fairly often and it can be difficult to match a remote with a particular model and serial number of garage door opener. That is the reality of using the lowest bidder to supply certain parts.

When one suppliers' product proves to be less reliable than desired they switch to a different supplier until the first improves the design of their product at a lower price and they go back and forth. It can become increasingly confusing.
