Universal 4 Button Garage Door Opener Remote is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 11.

This universal garage door remote made by Genie is very compact (about double the size of the quarter it is pictured with). It comes with some handy accessories so you can clip it to your car visor or use it as a key fob (see pictures). You can program it for use with up to four different garage doors (see the four buttons on the unit)! Another good feature is that it runs on the very common CR2032 button battery which you can find easily if you need a replacement battery sometime in the future. Changing the battery involves removing one Phillips head screw from the back. Programming it is very straightforward. Genie has included very thorough instructions for over a dozen different garage door openers. However, you will want to check to be sure your opener was manufactured after 1992 because the instructions state this remote unit will not work with garage door openers manufactured prior to 1993. I highly recommend this universal remote! So easy to use!

This Genie universal remote has been difficult at best. There are three methods of programming. One (quick Start) worked immediately on my Chamberlain opener. I could not get the Clone method to work on the same opener following the instructions. I was also unable to make the clone method work on the gate opener to my complex (which, made by Linear, is shown in the instructions but still might not be compatible. On top of that, the battery that came with the unit died after 4 days, and the only thing I used it for was multiple attempts at programming. I replaced it and the unit started working again, but still wouldn't clone either of my remotes (Note: there is NO indication in the instructions or on the opener as to which way the battery is inserted, so pay attention when you remove the old one). I used the QR code shown in the instructions for “additional information and links” but all I got was a copy of the same instruction sheet that came with the unit. A search on the Genie website with the model of the unit (GU4TG) yielded only a “keyword not found”. I could find no supporting information anywhere. I cannot recommend this unit.

I have a Chamberlain remote and when presented with the opportunity of being able to program another remote to the same frequency so I could use it upstairs I jumped at the chance. Alas, even though this appears well made, and the instruction sheet offers at least 3 options of programming, I couldn't get it to work and clone my existing remote. I looked online hoping someone would post an instructional video about programming it, but I guess it is too new for anyone to have done that. But I won't give up, and will just mark it off as my inability to get it to work. So if anyone has any other tips I'm willing to listen and give it another try.

This garage door opener remote come with documentation on how to set it up. Unfortunately there are a lot of different ways listed to get it set up and I had a hard time finding one that would work. When I finally got it working with my garage door opener my other two garage door opener remotes stopped working. I had to remember what I did and go back and reprogram the old garage door remotes. I don’t know whether this could be made simpler. Once you have it programmed it is a handy little remote and it is nice to have an extra one. I have my current two remotes in our two vehicles, so it is nice to have an extra one if I’m working out in the yard and need to open and close the garage.

Tiny remote, controls 4 devices, and works great...if you can get it programmed for your situation! The Genie Universal 4-Button remote (model #GU4TG-R) is so small and light you can put it in a pocket and forget it’s there. Or clip it to a key chain with the supplied loop. And if you have a 3-car garage and a gate, or a second home, or need access to a relative’s garage, it’s great to have four buttons to program. And it works great...IF you can get it programmed. It’s “universal” and lists several brands and models of Garage Door Openers (GDOs) that it works with, but I had no luck programming it for my 1999 Craftsman GDO (with a red “Learn” button), trying all three methods multiple times. However it programmed quickly and easily with my in-laws’ Genie GDO (circa 2004), so it’s not that I can’t follow instructions ;) Be sure to read the instructions carefully -- they’re pretty good, but not perfect. Two key items are missing: 1) They don’t mention that you should be 5’ away from the GDO when performing the programming sequence (and considering that you have to get on a ladder to push the “Learn” button on the GDO, it’s natural to proceed immediately to programming.) 2) They say to push the button “slowly and deliberately,” which could mean different things to different people. It would be far more helpful if they specified the number of seconds to hold the button and number of seconds to pause in-between. Three Ways to Program -- Depending on your situation, you may need to use multiple methods 1) “Pre-set” is the easiest, and is available for several popular GDOs. This method worked for my in-laws’ Genie GDO. But there is a particular button pre-assigned for each brand (Genie is button 1.) So you if you have a 2-car garage with separate (but identical) GDOs, you can only use the “Pre-set” approach with ONE of them. You’ll need to use the “Learn” method for the other. 2) “Learn” is a more common method, works with any of the four buttons, and only involves a couple extra steps. This approach also worked with my in-laws’ Genie. 3) “Cloning” is supposed to copy the codes from an existing remote. I could not get this method to work at all, not even with the Genie GDO. Shout out to Genie Customer Service. They spent a LOT of time on chat and by phone helping to trouble-shoot my situation/application, and were legitimately interested in feedback. It turns out this is a brand new product that hasn’t been released for broad distribution yet (March 2019), so hopefully by the time you read this they will have worked out the kinks. They’re certainly trying hard! So, recommended, but with the caveat that you might need to return it if it doesn’t work with your GDOs.

A compact (2 1/4” x 1 1/2”) universal garage door opener that was very easy to program. The instructions have 3 different methods, so between those and my previous experience with programming remotes, i had it whipped in under 10 minutes. I did drop it onto a vinyl floor with no consequence so it durability to it. I chose to use the visor clip, which fits snuggly and installed easily. I also easily installed the keyring holder for safe keeping. It has a good range. My driveway is a hundred feet and it signals my garage door opener about 1/3 of the way up. The remote and accessories came inside plastic protected by some foamy plastic inside a small box. Everything was easy to access and tear open.

The small size is what attracted me to this remote but the functionality is awful. I'm generally fairly tech savvy and I had to call to get help to program this remote. It took their person a few tries before they got it to work. Secondly the range is terrible. I'm guessing 20 feet max. I have to drive my car sideways to the garage so it is closer to get it to work, and that only works sometimes. If that does not work I stick my arm out the window to make it a few feet closer. I have had it about 3 weeks so we will see if i can get Home Depot to it back, and I will buy the bulky Chamberlain remote. Today in the pouring rain was the final straw.

This remote doesn’t appear to be “universal” as claimed, I was unable to get it to work with two different gate openers which other brands of universal remote have no difficulty with. One of the key reasons for selecting this Genie Universal remote is its very compact size and support for up to four different garage door or gate openers. It would have fit perfectly into an indent in the console in one of our cars. The remote can either be clipped to a sun visor using the supplied visor clip, or attached to a key ring/chain. There are three methods that can be used to program the remote: 1. Quick Start whereby the four buttons on the remote correspond to one of four preset codes for certain Genie Intellicode and Overhead Door CodeDodger 1 devices as well as three types of Chamberlain code (Purple, Orange/Red and Yellow). 2. Learn method whereby the remote can be set to a wider range of codes from around a dozen vendors including Sommer, Linear, Wayne Dalton, Ryobi, Guardian, Xtreme and Marantec. 3. Clone ethod whereby the remote can sense the signal being transmitted by another nearby remote and programmed that way. I decided to use the Clone mode since I have used that method to successfully to set up the HomeLink gate and door openers that are pre-installed in one of our cars. Unfortunately while I was able to get the Genie Univeral remote into Clone mode, it did not progress to the rapid blue blink stage to confirm it had registered the signal from the nearby remote I was trying to program it from. I tried to program it with the HomeLink system in our car, a Digicode remote and a Clicker remote, all with no luck. I then went to Genie’s website and started a chat session with one of their customer support staff. This was quite brief since they didn’t recognize the GU4TG product number of this Universal remote and claimed that their only universal remote part number was GM3T. I was informed by the customer support person that it is called ‘Universal’ because it is universal for all Genie fixed and rolling code openers. So there you have it, I gave up after 30 minutes and put it back in its box figuring that if Genie's customer support wasn't able to support their own product, I wasn't about to invest my own time in trying to figure it out. My recommendation would be to download the installation instruction PDF from Home Depot’s website and double check that your gate or garage door opener system is listed in the brands that Genie claims to support.
