Programming Procedure for Hormann Ecomatic & SupraMatic remote control transmitters
(also applies to Garador Auto Expert & Auto M2 electric operators)

Hormann HS, HSM & HSE series transmitters can learn the unique security code from an existing working transmitter
Hormann 40Mhz code copy     Hormann 868Mhz code copy
(a) original (teaching) transmitter
(b) replacement learning transmitter

Standard Programming Procedure (Method 'A')

1/ Hold the transmitter which is to 'teach' the code (teaching transmitter) 'a' and the transmitter
which is to 'learn' the code (learning transmitter) 'b' beside each other as illustrated above.

2/ Press and hold the desired button on the teaching transmitter - the LED on it should glow

3/ Continue to depress the button on the teaching transmitter and also press and hold the button which is to learn this code on the learning transmitter - the LED on the learning transmitter initially flashes slowly for 4 seconds, then starts flashing more rapidly to confirm the learning process is complete

4/ Release the buttons on both transmitters and check that both transmitters operate the door,
repeat steps 1 - 4 again if it fails to operate the door.

Caution  --  Activation of the teaching transmitter during the
learning procedure may set the door in motion if within range !

Note: If your transmitters are used to control more than one door you'll need to carry out the programming procedure separately for each button.

Alternative Programming Procedure (Method 'B')

If an original transmitter has been lost or stolen, or you no longer have an original 'working' keyfob you must program a new replacement keyfob to your Hormann receiver unit by the following method:  Examine your Hormann garage door operator unit and you should find a receiver module attached to it by a connecting wire, (similar to those shown below) usually grey in colour this module will have a small red push-button on the receiver module casing.   This push button will put the receiver into 'learn' mode whereby it will learn & memorise the security code directly from the new transmitter.

The radio frequency is printed on the receiver module

Hormann HE1 40.685Mhz receiver module

Hormann 40.685 Mhz transmitters have a grey case with light grey buttons

Note: the aerial wire on 40.685Mhz receiver is approx 200cm long

Hormann HE-1 868Mhz receiver module illustrated with a type HSM mini transmitter (light blue buttons)

Note: the aerial wire on the 868Mhz receiver is approx 10cm long

Programming a new keyfob transmitter

Press the red 'learn' button on the receiver module briefly and a light beside the button should start flashing slowly, then take the new keyfob transmitter and press the button you wish to use and the light on the receiver unit should flash rapidly for a few seconds then stop flashing when the new code has been stored.  This action will automatically over-write the previously stored code, this new 'teaching transmitter' should now operate your door.

Any additional keyfobs you wish to use must be cloned from the 'teaching transmitter' by the learning method as described in method 'A' above

Note: Some 868Mhz Hormann operators such as the ProMatic 2 & SupraMatic E2 etc. have an integral remote control receiver so if you have one of these you'll need to refer to procedure as detailed in the users manual for the direct programming method if you don't have an 'already programmed' transmitter from which you can 'copy' the remote code.
