Hi all - after a bit of help as i have now spent hours on this and can't work out what the issue may be.

I have gates controlled by BFT and also 2 electric garage doors, all 3 are remotely controlled with BFT Mitto 4 button remotes.

I purchased some additional Type B RCB 4 remotes this week and successfully added them to the electronic panel for the gates. This all worked as it should
I then went on to copy the existing remote to the new remote for the garage doors. ( They are Marentec comfort 220 door controllers, although I don't think that makes any difference).

In the past I have simply pressed the secret button on the existing remote followed by the button i want to copy and then on the new remote i have pressed the secret button and then the button i want to copy the code to. This time it doesn't work - tried multiple times and it just won't work. A few questions to clarify my understanding

1) As far as i am aware this procedure has nothing to do with the control board at the gates - this is merely the two remotes talking to each other ? ( i spoke to BFT and they said that that is correct )

2) I don't have to be in range of the garage door openers as again I think its just the two remotes that are involved in this procedure ?

If the above is true why would it not be working - am i missing something ? Would there be a reason why the existing remotes are not entering into the learning mode for instance ?

Any help or suggestions appreciated

Hi Darren,

Thank you for your enquiry, in order to copy BFT remotes to remotes you will need to be in range of the receiver on the gate system. This is due to the receiver storing the code which transmitted from the transmitters. If you try this it should solve the problem.

Thanks Tim

This is even though the the buttons I am trying to copy have nothing to do with the gates or the control panel of the gates ?
