Entry Systems Tech Talks: Programming Your Car to a Liftmaster Operator
In the second video of our new Tech Talks series, Jonathan, our Manager of Garage Door Operations, explains how to program your car to a Liftmaster operator using your car’s existing garage door opener buttons.
It is important for you to have easy access to your home. One great way to make your life that much more convenient is to program your car directly to your garage door operator! This will allow you another means of access into your garage and allow you to give your current garage door remote to another family member or keep it in a second car. Why not connect the technology you already have in place and make your life a little easier?
If you’ve never programmed your car’s garage door buttons, now is the time. It can be a little confusing the first time, but this video from an Entry Systems professional will allow you to DIY (do it yourself) in just a minute or two.
Here’s an overview:
Many cars these days have HomeLink buttons installed which allow you to easily program your car to open and close your garage door using a Liftmaster operator.
A car’s HomeLink usually has a small symbol of a house and three buttons, and it is most commonly placed on the roof right above the windshield on either driver’s side or in the middle.
Make sure you also have a currently programmed garage door remote so you can transfer it over to your car’s HomeLink buttons.
Now follow these simple steps:
1- Decide which car button you want to program. Press that button & make sure the light flashes slow. If the light is solid or flashes fast, hold it down until it starts flashing slow (it could take up to 30 seconds to reset).
2- Take the handheld garage door remote that is already programmed. Hold down that remote’s button at the same time as you hold down your car button until the car button’s light starts flashing fast.
(With some newer cars this is all you have to do! Press your car’s button, and if the garage door opens you are done! If the door doesn’t open, however, continue to the next step.)
3- Find the “learn button” on your garage door operator (that’s the button on the machine which pulls your door open). Push that button down quickly (just once!).
4- Now go back to your car and hold down the button you chose to program. The lights on your motor should blink once.
5- Press your car’s programmed button & your garage door should now open. You’re all done!

A few nights ago some of the Entry Systems team went to a neighborhood in Brea, California that is completely decorated with lights, lawn decorations, and music for the Christmas holiday. We parked our cars and walked in and out of the streets in awe of all the lights and festivities. Being in the garage door business made us all a little more observant of the way people decorated their garage doors. Here are just a few of our favorites:
Simple and sophisticated garland and lights above the garage.
Another Christmas decal wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!
A favorite of all passerby. The garage was transformed into a winter wonderland.
A Christmas garage door decal.
If you’re in the area, you should stop by E Lambert Road and Sunflower Street in Brea, CA and check out the neighborhood lights. It is a great way to get in the holiday spirit and celebrate Christmas.
Here at Entry Systems we want to wish you all a safe and Merry Christmas. We hope you find time to celebrate with family and friends and that you find hope and peace this Christmas. Merry Christmas!
We’ve had a good deal of rain lately here in Southern California. Compared to the rest of the country it’s not very much, but we have been in a drought so when it rains for 2 days day we consider that to be a “good deal” of rain. Personally, I like the change in the weather. I was able to go home after work, light a fire, and enjoy a cozy evening with hot chocolate and Christmas tree lights. I know the rain can cause many problems for people, though too. One of those problems has to do with your garage door.
If your garage door is a roll-up, sectional door you have a type of springs called torsion springs. These springs twist as your garage door closes, storing up energy, and then releasing energy and untwisting to open the door. Without these springs your door is extremely heavy and almost impossible to lift. Torsion springs don’t like the rain so when it rains they often break leaving your garage door stuck closed and your car trapped inside. That’s when you frantically call Entry Systems to schedule a time for a technician to come out to fix it.
Most people don’t think twice about their garage door until it breaks. But the fact of the matter is that torsion springs only last about 10,000 cycles, or 5-8 years. There are a few things you can do to help increase the life of your torsion springs, preventing extreme inconvenience and unexpected expenses. We recommend having your garage door system serviced annually. There are many parts that can wear out which can cause damage and unnecessary strain to your door and motor. It is also important to keep your rollers, track, and springs well lubricated. This will help your door open and close smoothly and quietly, and will prolong the life of your garage door and it’s operating system. Garage door maintenance can be dangerous so it may be best if you leave it up to the professionals. We are happy to help and make sure you are able to get in and out of your garage and to work on time!
The torsion springs in your garage cause the door to open and close and can cause stress when broken.
When you have an Entry Systems technician show up at your house you might receive more than you are expecting. Our technicians are very well trained in everything having to do with garage doors. They are good guys who genuinely want to help our customers. Sometimes the opportunity to help with something other than the garage door presents itself. This story is an example of that.
Not long ago we received a call from a customer requesting service for their garage door. We added her to the schedule and when the time came, we sent our technician out to see what was going on with her garage and how he could help. As he was doing the adjustments, the customer’s husband came out to the garage to check on how things were proceeding. While he was talking with our technician, he became faint and passed out on the garage floor. His wife became hysterical and our technician immediately began to assess the situation and decide what he could do to help. Not every one knows this, but this particular technician is a certified paramedic and worked as a reserve fire fighter before coming to work for Entry Systems. He sat the man up in a chair and had the man’s wife call 9-1-1. When the paramedics arrived they were impressed with our technician’s knowledge and how he handled the situation. He never did tell them he is a certified paramedic.
At Entry Systems we take pride in our work. We have highly trained technicians who love working with our customers. You never know what kind of bonus you may receive when you have Entry Systems come to service your garage door or automated gate.

As you can tell by the photo, we had a great time and are looking forward to maintaining this positive community relationship.
“The Laguna Niguel Chamber of Commerce mission is to stimulate & support a strong relationship between the business community, residents, local government; to promote a positive economic environment & enhance the quality of life.”
Using your front door is a thing of the past– most of us go inside through our garage door. Do you even carry a house key anymore? Most don’t.
Last Thursday night we had a power outage here in Orange County that affected over 120,000 homes and offices. (ABC Local) If you were planning on using your garage door or gate during that 3 hour window, you were either locked in or out. We look to our garage doors and gates for security but when the power goes we become trapped.
Here at Entry Systems we received many calls due to the power outage. Our advice– be prepared before it happens again. We know the only time you think about your gate and garage door is when it’s broken, but you need to be prepared for the unexpected.
My favorite story is from a power outage that happened about a year ago. I know a woman in her 50’s who fortunately had a neighbor who was able (and willing) to climb up the second story balcony to let himself in through the sliding door! If only her door still worked.
We want you to be able to depend on your garage door or gate, even when the power goes out. That’s why we are currently including the battery backup with any LiftMaster 8360 or 8550 garage door opener that is installed. Gate operators that come with the battery back up are the CSW24V and CSL24V. We’re here to help.
