Different Differences of Programming
Programming a Chamberlain Garage Door Opener can seem like a daunting task, but with the right information you can get the job done quickly and easily. Here are some of the different differences between programming entry devices such as garage door openers and key fobs:
Garage door openers are typically programmable through remotes or control panels, while key fobs are usually programmed using buttons on the device itself.
Garage door openers program in minutes, while key fobs may take several minutes to programming.
And finally, garage door openers usually have more features than key fobs- for example, garage door openers can be programmed to close and open automatically based on certain conditions (like daylight saving time), while key fobs only allow for opening and closing.

How to make your own programming for the Chamberlain
If you own a Chamberlain garage door opener, there is a good chance that the programming is already done for you. However, if you would like to program it yourself, this guide will walk you through the process.
First, unplug the garage door opener from the wall and remove the cover. Underneath are two white buttons with black letters. Push one of the buttons to reset the door to its open position. On some models, there may also be a light above one of the buttons that needs to be turned off before programming can begin.
With the garage door opener still unplugged from the wall and reset, line up the red arrows on your remote with those on the opener. If using an old-fashioned keypad type remote, hold down one of the buttons for three seconds until the green led lights up. Now press and release the button correspondingly with what number is lit up on your remote (1 being top left and 6 being bottom right). Be sure not to press any other buttons while programming your remote! If all goes well, your remote should now work as normal, but you will need to reprogram it if you move it or lose it.
