Garage door opener button question

5 posts in this topic

Small problem that is driving me nuts. I currently have only one opener button near my entrance into the house from the garage...I want another near the door exiting the garage outside.

When I hook up the two buttons; the buttons themselves work fine, but when I go to use a remote, the opener does not work and the opener blinks in a sequence indicating that a remote attempted to open the door when the switch is in "vacation" or locked mode.

I called a local garage door co. and explained the issue and they said to go get a standard doorbell button instead of the second opener button made by the opener manufacturer because the two buttons were conflicting with each other. This made sense to me as I have seen this sort of setup before, but it didn't work and the same problem code is indicated.

The opener is made by Linear and both buttons have a pair of wires running to each. Do I need to wire the two buttons together somehow?

I'll take a stab at this.

Are the buttoms wired in parallel (out of one button into the other or series (each button with it's own set of wires going to the same screws as the other button)?

You should just hang a remote where the pushbutton is. I think you will have problems with two pushbuttons because of the rolling code that is on linear openers. Each pushbutton has it's on computer board this is where the problem happens. This is a good question, I currently sell that brand and have never tried this. Probably why the outside keypad is not hardwired. So one pushbutton and all the remotes you want.

You need two wire for each button,Parallel wont work the 2nd button will disrupt current.

I have a chamberlan opener working with two doorbell buttons wired seperatly 4 wires to the opener,and a remote in the car that works also.

What brand is yours? Have you tried to reset frequencies,or change them? Or just push the reset button?

    • You'd think they'd give Stalock a look.  His overall NHL stats are OK and not that bad down in IA either....Kemps has to have a "great" night and have everything in front of him going our way to be good...he's not going to steal games for us like Dubs can IMO...give Stalock a shot in the nets!
    • 1 I'm on board, but not sure how you go about doing that. 2 laughably impossible 3 Sure, but it's not going to make a whole lot of a difference. 4 OK, I assume it would need to be replaced with something else though. 5 is open to a lot of interpretation as to what "make no sense"   None of that really puts the power back to the people though.   Do you still envision a representational government with elected leaders?    
    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
