Installation Instructions for Model 4200
Wireless Programmable Digital Keyless Entry
Congratulations! You have purchased the MULTI-CODE Wireless
Programmable Digital Keyless Entry System, which we believe to be the finest
product of its type on the market. Please take a moment to review these
instructions. They will be helpful in the proper installation and operation of
your new system.
PROCEED AS FOLLOWS:
Choose Mounting Location. Choose a convenient
location that does not interfere with the normal operation of the door, such as
on the door jamb or on the wall adjacent to the door. Note that some doors will
swing up, be sure that in operating your RF Programmable Keyless Entry System
you will not be in the path of the door’s travel IMPORTANT: Your keyless
entry system should be mounted out of the reach of children.
IF YOU ARE MOUNTING YOUR KEYLESS ENTRY SYSTEM TO
ALUMINUM SIDING you may find it better to substitute carriage bolts for the
mounting screws supplied. Bolts should be long enough to reach into the garage,
and be secured with lock washers and nuts. IF YOU ARE MOUNTING YOUR KEYLESS
ENTRY SYSTEM ONTO BRICK, STONE, OR MORTAR, suitable anchors must be set into
the mortar, and the fasteners screwed into these.
When mounting location has been determined, drill one 1/8”
pilot hole one inch (1”) deep for top screw. Insert into pilot hole, leaving the
head of the screw exposed about 1/8” fro the wall. Slide the unit over the
exposed screw so that it hangs on the wall.
To install second mounting screw you will need to remove
battery hatch and 9 volt battery. To remove battery hatch insert flathead
screwdriver with a twisting motion into the slot provided on the bottom of
keypad. Remove the battery to expose second mounting hole. Mark the location of
the pilot hole and remove keypad. Drill 1/8” pilot hole one inch (1”) deep.
Replace keypad and insert screw. Reinstall battery and replace battery cover.
Your Keyless Entry System comes with preset factory
codes (2,4,6,8,10) for the radio code and (1,2,3,4) for the 4-digit access code.
We urge you to reprogram the unit with your own personal codes to prevent
The Alpha Characters, numerals “0-9”, the words “radio
learn” and “access learn” are printed in black on translucent button. The 0-9
buttons are used for the radio code and access code. You may also use the Alpha
characters to create your own personal keyword access code, so long as the
keyword does not exceed four letters. The “radio learn” and “access learn”
buttons are used for programming.
The RF Programmable Keyless Entry System has two
RADIO CODE PROGRAMMING
The radio code is a 10-bit digit code that is transmitted
to the garage door operator. This code must be set to match the code on the
10-position switch in the garage door operator receiver. To begin
programming or change the radio code press the “radio learn” Key twice (The
indicator LED will come on, indicating learn mode. During the learn mode, the
indicator LED will blink off with each keypress). Now enter the preset
four-digit access code (Note: For first time programming, this would be the
factory code 1,2,3,4). Now enter the new radio code (Note: this will be
the code on the garage door operator receiver. Only enter the corresponding
numbers on the 10 position switch that are in the “on” (closed) position.
Example: The 2,5,6,7 positions on the receiver “on”. You would enter 2,5,6,7 for
your radio code. If the 10th position on the switch is “on” (closed),
the corresponding keypress number is 0). Finally press the “radio learn” key
to end programming sequence. If indicator LED turns off when “radio learn” key
is pressed, the new radio code has been successfully programmed. If the access
code was entered incorrectly during programming, the indicator LED will blink at
a fast rate for 4 seconds when the “radio Learn” key is pressed, then turn off.
This indicates an error in the programming procedure and the radio code will
remain unchanged (NOTEP: During the radio learn mode, pressing the same key
twice for the radio code will be accepted as one key press. Example: 3-1-1-4
will be accepted as 3-1-4). Check to see if the new radio code matches your
garage door receiver by entering factory access code (1,2,3,4) at this time. If
door opens, reprogram radio code using the above procedure.

ACCESS CODE PROGRAMMING
To begin programming or change the access code press the
“access Learn” key twice (The indicator LED will come on indicating learn mode.
During the learn mode, the indicator LED will blink off with each keypress). Now
enter old access code (NOTE: For the first time programming, this would be
the factory code 1,2,3,4). Next enter new 4 digit access code. Finally
press the “access learn” key to end programming sequence. If indicator LED turns
off when “access learn” key is pressed, the new access code has been
successfully programmed .If the old access code was entered incorrectly or more
than 4 keys were entered for the new code during programming, the indicator LED
will blink at a fast rate for 4 seconds when “access Learn” key is pressed, then
turn off. This indicates an error in the programming procedure and the access
code will remain unchanged. (NOTE: TO RESET THE RF PROGRAMMABLE KEYLESS ENTRY
TO THE FACTORY RADIO CODE AND ACCESS CODE REMOVE 9 VOLT BATTERRY FROM UNIT,
DEPRESS ANY KEY ON THE KEYPAD AND WAIT 10 SECONDS BEFORE INSTALLING BATTERY).

The 4 digit access code can be any combination of numeral
0-9, from 0000-9999.
During both programming modes the keypad will brighten with
first keypress and will go out 25 seconds after last keypress.
- pressing any key will cause the keypad to light up and
stay on for 25 seconds from last keypress. Your personal access code must be
completely entered within 25 seconds of the last number entered. If not, the
door will not open and LED’s will go out. If you fail to enter the entire
code in the allotted time, you must re-enter the entire code.
- Some door openers can be stopped, or reversed (depending
on make and model) once the door is in motion. If your door opener allows this
type of function this feature is activated by pressing any of the 12 keys a
second time once your personal code has been entered. The 12 programmable
Keyless Entry buttons are active as the operator’s push button for
approximately 25 seconds (The keypad LED’s will flash during these 25
- Over time smudges may appear on frequently used buttons.
To prevent this, it is advisable to keep your keypad clean, and to change your
personal access code from time to time.
- If you forget your programmed access code, disconnect
battery from keyless entry, depress any key on the keypad and wait 30 seconds
before installing battery. The keyless entry will reset to the factory radio
and access codes. You must reprogram both the radio and access codes at this
LOW BATTERY MODE
When battery becomes weak, the system enters a low battery
mode. During this mode the LED’s will blink on with the first key press and then
turn off. The LED’s will remain off during remaining code entry to indicate low
battery condition. If the correct access code was entered, the keypad LED’s will
start flashing and the indicator LED will remain out. The keyless entry will
work approximately 20 times in the low battery mode.
Replacement battery – 9 volt alkaline battery.
The battery can be checked or changed by opening the
battery hatch using a flathead screwdriver in the slot provided on the bottom of
the keyless entry. A twisting motion of the screwdriver will open the battery
hatch and provide access to the battery compartment (NOTE: To avoid loss of
programmed coeds while changing the battery, allow keypad LED’s to turn off
before removing the old battery, and install the new battery within 1 minute. Do
not depress any key when changing battery. If the battery is not installed
within 1 minute or a key is depressed, the Wireless Programmable Keyless Entry
may reset to the factory codes. You must reprogram both radio and access codes
if this happens).
