Question: I Live in a complex with Linear a gate operator. I was given one remote (a liftmaster one button) to access the gate. I bought an identical remote but do not know how to program the remote for a Linear gate. Do we have to open the Linear gate box to program the remote to work? Or can it be done externally?
Answer: It sounds like even though your gate is a Linear brand they have installed a Liftmaster receiver on it which is why you're able to use a Liftmaster remote, so the answer to your question is YES you will have to open the gate motor and locate the receiver, on the receiver there is a program/ learn button that is used to program new transmitters. Normally in a gated complex for security purposes the office is the only one that has access to the gate operator receiver.
