Homelink® Repeater Kit for LiftMaster Models 8360 & 8550

Posted on by Preferred Doors in Chamberlain Garage Door Openers, Homelink 2.0, Liftmaster Leave a comment

 

Purchase a LiftMaster 855LM Repeater Kit….  here

The new LiftMaster® garage door opener line uses the Security+ 2.0™ radio system. In 2008, HomeLink started implementing the HomeLink Version 4 (which is compatible with the new Security+ 2.0™ radio system) into various makes and models of vehicles. If you are unable to program a HomeLink to a new Security+ 2.0™ garage door opener, the solution is to purchase a HomeLink Repeater Kit model# HOMELINKRPTR. This kit contains a repeater and a new remote control. The repeater accepts and converts a 310MHz Security+® to 315MHz Security+ 2.0™.

 

Features

  • Basic Steps to Install and Program the HomeLink through the repeater
  • Plug in the model# HOMELINKRPTR repeater near the garage door opener.
  • Press and release the yellow “LEARN” button on the garage door opener.
  • Within 30 seconds, press and hold the HomeLink vehicle button.
  • Release the HomeLink vehicle button when the garage door opener light blinks. If light bulbs are not installed in the garage door opener, two clicks will be heard.

FAQ about the Homelink® Repeater Kit

 

Liftmaster 855Lm HomeLing Repeater Kit can be purchased here.

For use with Chamberlain, Sears Craftsman and LiftMaster garage door openers operating on Security+ 2.0™ radios

 

LiftMaster has created a new version of our remote control rolling code called Security+ 2.0. This new technology increases radio range and virtually eliminates interference. This code did not exist prior to 2011. HomeLink is manufactured by an automotive supplier that licenses our technology for use in vehicles. HomeLink now offers a “repeater kit” that allows any HomeLink-equipped vehicle from 2000 – present to communicate with any Security+ 2.0 garage door opener. Visit www.homelink.com and follow the steps to program your specific vehicle and garage door opener to determine if you need this repeater kit.

 

Why don’t the new LiftMaster openers work with HomeLink vehicles made prior to 2007? 

 LiftMaster has created a new version of our remote control rolling code (Security+ 2.0™) that increases radio range and virtually eliminates interference. Older vehicles do not have this code in their HomeLink systems since it did not exist prior to 2007. This is not the first time that HomeLink has added new codes during the life of the product; the same situation existed back in the late 1990’s, only on a much smaller scale since HomeLink was not as popular as it is today. This does mark the first time that HomeLink has developed a backwards-compatible solution in the form of the repeater kit, thus allowing older vehicles to operate with new technology. Homeowners and dealers should be pleased that the kit exists, as many electronic products made today are rarely backwards compatible!

 

Some newer vehicles (2008 and up) still do not have the new Security+ 2.0™ code in the HomeLink system. Why did this happen?

 

 HomeLink is manufactured and designed by Johnson Controls, a large interior supplier to the automotive industry. Chamberlain (LiftMaster) gave Johnson Controls the new Security+ 2.0™ rolling code back in 2006 so they could add it to the HomeLink system in some vehicle models starting in late 2007. Many automotive companies chose not to immediately implement the new version of HomeLink for various reasons. In fact, some vehicles made in 2011 still do not have the new version. It may be that even within the same vehicle make, there are models that have the new HomeLink codes and in the same year, models that do not. This condition exists through no fault of Chamberlain or Johnson Controls; it was simply based on decisions at each automotive manufacturer to implement or delay the new version of HomeLink.

 

Which version of HomeLink is required and how can I determine which vehicles have it?

 

 HomeLink version 4.0 or higher vehicles are equipped with Security+ 2.0™. While lists do exist that show vehicles equipped and model years affected, these remain the property of the auto manufacturers and Johnson Controls; we are not permitted to distribute these lists. For the most accurate information, it is recommended that a consumer or dealer contact HomeLink directly at 800-355-3515 to determine vehicle compatibility. It may be necessary to look at the manufacturing date on the vehicle body. Another method of determining compatibility is to try to program the vehicle to a Security+ 2.0 system; if the connection cannot be made after one or two attempts, a HomeLink Repeater kit should be installed to rectify the situation.

 

Will the HomeLink repeater kit resolve difficult radio interference problems when used with a Security+ 2.0™ garage door opener?

 

Most likely, the answer is no. The HomeLink repeater uses 310 MHz signals, which may help reduce interference if there are problems at 315 or 390 MHz. Excessive interference between HomeLink in the vehicle and the HomeLink repeater kit may still create problems. Only the use of a Security+ 2.0™ garage door opener combined with either a Security+ 2.0™ transmitter or HomeLink vehicle transmitter v. 4.0 (or higher) will resolve difficult radio interference problems.

 

What happens to a HomeLink repeater when the power in the garage goes out?

The HomeLink repeater kit runs on 110 volt AC power. If the power goes out, the repeater will not work. For openers with AC motors (non-battery backup models) this is not an issue, since the opener and repeater are both inoperable when power is lost. If the repeater kit is operating a new Security+ 2.0™ battery-backup equipped garage door opener, a Security+ 2.0™ remote transmitter will be required to open the door during a power outage. In areas where residential power loss is common or recurring, it is recommended that the homeowner keep a Security+ 2.0™ transmitter in the glove box of the vehicle to allow entry during a power outage. Of course, a battery backup Security+ 2.0™ opener can always be controlled from outside the garage with a Security+ 2.0™ keypad.

 

Why didn’t the HomeLink repeater kit be designed to have a battery inside to allow operation of the repeater during a power failure?

 

The HomeLink repeater kit is a Johnson Controls branded product. Furthermore, it would be very costly to design a device that has a built-in battery that would retain power for hours or days in the event of a power failure. For those homeowners with a battery backup garage door opener, the more practical solution is for the vehicle owner to keep a spare Security+ 2.0™ remote in the glove box.

 

How many Security+ 2.0™ garage door openers can be programmed with a single HomeLink repeater kit?

The number of openers is virtually unlimited since the repeater is only acting as a “translator” to pass through commands. So there will be no problem programming one HomeLink repeater kit to multiple doors in a single garage as long as they are within range of the repeater kit mounted in the garage.

 

How many HomeLink buttons (including ones in different vehicles), can be programmed using a single HomeLink repeater kit?

 

The number of HomeLink buttons and vehicles are unlimited, just like the number of openers. One repeater kit is all that is needed for a garage, regardless of number of vehicles or garage door openers/doors.

 

What is the radio range of the HomeLink repeater kit?

 

The range of the repeater kit to the HomeLink transmitter in the vehicle will be the same as the range of a standard Security+ transmitter is today. The range of the Repeater kit to the Security+ 2.0™ garage door opener is the same as a Security+ 2.0™ remote to the opener.

 

What is included in the HomeLink repeater kit and how does it work?

 

The kit includes a plug-in 110 volt repeater and one single-button 310 MHz remote control. The repeater plugs into any outlet in the garage. The remote control is only used to “learn” the repeater code and frequency to the existing HomeLink buttons in the vehicle and will not communicate with the Security+ 2.0™ radio system in the garage door opener; Once HomeLink is programmed, the remote control will not operate the opener. It is recommended that the homeowner keep the single-button 310 MHz HomeLink remote control for future use with other vehicles if needed. For programming details, refer to the instructions included in the HomeLink repeater kit.

 

Why didn’t this repeater kit release when the first new Security+ 2.0™ models released?

 

The HomeLink repeater kit was originally intended to be a Johnson Controls product only. After discussions with Johnson Controls, it was agreed that LiftMaster would have the ability to sell the product to support the LiftMaster business, thus helping HomeLink to quickly resolve customer problems during time of installation of a new Security+ 2.0™ garage door opener.

 

What about vehicles with Car2U transmitter systems?

 

Car2U is manufactured by Lear Corporation, a competitor of Johnson Controls. Car2U has never used the rolling

code of any model Sears, Chamberlain or LiftMaster remote control. Vehicles with a Car2U system are not compatible with any version of our rolling code. Lear Car2U can be identified by three LED lights, one above each button on the product. Consumers with a Lear Car2U should be directed to contact Lear for further assistance at 1-866-572-2728.

 

Will LiftMaster dealers be able to obtain the HomeLink repeater kit for free?

 

No, dealers will have to buy the kit from LiftMaster as the kit remains the intellectual property of Johnson Controls. Chamberlain and LiftMaster are only authorized agents allowed to resell the repeater kit.

 

What will HomeLink charge consumers for the repeater kit?

 

HomeLink has set a consumer price of $49.95, not including shipping. For vehicles within their three-year factory

warranty, HomeLink may offer the repeater kit for the cost of shipping only. This offer is subject to HomeLink approval. LiftMaster dealers will be able to buy the kit from LiftMaster, and resell it for the same price to the consumer as HomeLink. For the most accurate information, it is recommended that a consumer or dealer contact HomeLink directly at 1-800-355-3515 to determine vehicle compatibility.

 

 

 

Basic Steps to Program the HomeLink

  1. Press and hold down the two outside buttons on the HomeLink in the vehicle.
  2. Release the HomeLink vehicle buttons when the indicator light begins to fl ash (after 20 seconds).
  3. Hold the new remote control 1-3″ away from the HomeLink and keep the indicator light in view.
  4. Simultaneously press and hold the remote control button with the HomeLink button you want to program. DO NOT release any buttons until the next step is completed.
  5. The indicator light on the HomeLink will begin to flash slowly during the programming. When the indicator light begins to fl ash rapidly, release the remote control and HomeLink buttons.
  6. Test the HomeLink. Press and hold the programmed HomeLink button. If the indicator light remains on the programming was successful.

LiftMaster Models 8550 and 8360 with Enabled By MyQ™ Technology

Posted on by Preferred Doors in Garage Door Openers, Liftmaster Leave a comment

Liftmaster MyQ Enabled

LiftMaster, the number one brand of professionally installed garage door openers and access solutions, debuts a new generation of residential garage door opener models enabled by MyQ™ technology, a patented, two-way intelligent communication system embedded in the new units that will take homeowner freedom and convenience to an entirely new level. The LiftMaster IDA 2011 exhibit showcased the groundbreaking technology built into the first two units of a new line available to dealers, the LiftMaster Elite Series™ Belt Drive 8550 and the Premium Series Chain Drive 8360, and demonstrated how the wireless technology works alongside the new offerings of MyQ-enabled accessories.

Paving the way as the new intelligence in garage door openers, these models feature anenhanced logic board that functions as a new, smarter ‘brain’ inside. As one of two radios on the board, the patented MyQ technology, which will come standard on all new openers rolling out now and in the coming years from LiftMaster, utilizes a two-way communication system that enables these advanced units to open and close the garage door as well as manage other household devices. For the first time ever, the garage door opener can wirelessly send and receive messages and commands to other household devices that are plugged into LiftMaster accessories enabled by MyQ technology, expanding the garage door opener beyond only opening and closing door.

“The garage door opener is something many homeowners use every day, several times a day, which is why we asked ourselves, how can we make the garage door opener work harder for the customer and work smarter for the dealer,” states Ken Roehl, vice president sales and marketing, LiftMaster. “We developed the next generation of garage door openers and accessories enabled by MyQ technology to not only innovate with the growing technology trends but also to provide our dealer partners with a unique offering that differentiates them in the marketplace by being able to offer the forward-thinking products that consumers have come to expect,” continues Roehl.

 LIFTMASTER MyQ TECHNOLOGY + ACCESSORIES – How it works

 Through a cutting-edge, two-way communication system, the new lineup of LiftMaster openers enabled by MyQ technology has the ability to manage and activate other MyQ-enabled devices within the home. Outfitted with two separate radios, a “worker” radio (Security+2.0 which uses 310, 315 or 390 MHz) and a “communication” radio (MyQ technology, which uses 900 MHz), a homeowner can turn lights on or off in the home or operate the garage door with a remote or from anywhere in the world using a smart phone or personal computer, depending on the type of LiftMaster MyQ-enabled accessory plugged into the household device. This pioneering capability allows dealers to offer today’s homeowners an entirely new level of affordable home activation as opposed to an expensive, hardwired home automation system.

 Meet the MyQ Accessories: Within or Around the Home

Working with the two-way communication system built into each new opener, LiftMaster developed an array of functional and innovative accessories ideal for any homeowner who wants more freedom and control while also elevating the security and convenience of their home. Garage Door Monitor Enabled by MyQ Technology Synced up with the same 900 MHz frequency as the “communication” radio in the power head of either the 8550 or 8360 unit, the LiftMaster Garage Door Monitor (Model 829LM) displays the status of the garage door from within any room of the house. This innovative base station receives an alert from the garage door opener, which has the sensor built in to the system. If the door is open, the garage door opener will alert the base station which will blink red and an audible noise will sound; if the door is closed, the garage door opener will inform the base station and the light on the monitor will illuminate green until the status of the door changes. This feature offers the homeowner added convenience and peace-of-mind that their garage door is open or closed when it should be.

 Remote Light Control Enabled by MyQ Technology

Now, your customers never have to enter a dark home with the LiftMaster Remote Light Control. These adaptors, enabled by MyQ technology, plug into the wall outlet or socket. By plugging any household lamp or light fixture into the Remote Light Control adaptor, a homeowner can easily and conveniently manage that light; switch it on or off with a simple press of a remote button or brighten up their entranceway to the home, front hallway, mudroom, kitchen or living room as they pull into the driveway, providing added visibility and security.

 MyQ Accessories: From Anywhere in the World

LiftMaster Internet Gateway Enabled by MyQ Technology

Taking home activation to a new level, LiftMaster is also unveiling the internet gateway (828LM). By simply plugging the LiftMaster Internet Gateway into an existing router with a live internet connection, homeowners can now monitor and control their garage door opener and 15 additional devices enabled by MyQ technology from anywhere in the world using a smartphone or a computer. Once a homeowner plugs in the LiftMaster Internet Gateway accessory to their existing internet connection they will be prompted to register their device on MyLiftMaster.com, which serves as the hub for managing all registered MyQ devices. In addition to this web site, homeowners can also obtain the LiftMaster app where all apps are sold, and control their MyQ registered devices from their own smart phones. The gateway allows access from anywhere, not just from within the home, providing a truly elevated level of freedom and control.

 More Efficient, Better Design

In addition to rich features and benefits, the new line of LiftMaster garage door openers enabled by MyQ technology consume just one watt of energy per hour when in standby mode, compared to older units, which use five to six watts per hour in standby mode. The efficient new units were crafted to be able to fit energy-saving CFL light bulbs.

Opportunities to Expand

The first wave of units, the Elite Series 8550 and the Premium Series 8360, are available for dealers in August 2011, with the majority of the newly designed models from the enhanced line rolling out in 2012. All LiftMaster units and accessories moving forward will be equipped with MyQ technology. These units and accessories cannot be retrofitted to non-MyQ enabled openers or accessories.

LiftMaster is the number one brand of professionally installed residential garage door openers, as well as a major manufacturer of commercial door operators, residential and commercial gate operators, telephone entry systems and related access control products. Driven by the access and security needs of the marketplace, LiftMaster’s expansive line of state-of-the-art residential and commercial products are designed to fit any lifestyle or application, providing consumers with the latest technology and innovations in safety, security and convenience. For inquiries on the new line of LiftMaster garage door openers enabled by MyQ technology (models 8550 and 8360) and MyQ enabled accessories, or to inquire about becoming an authorized dealer, please visit www.LiftMaster.com.
