I have a Sears Craftsman garage door opener that came with a 3 button multi function remote control that is supposed to be Homelink compatible. One of the buttons controls the door itself and the other 2 I was hoping I could program to perform other stuff.
Mainly, I would like to have one of the other 2 buttons turn the outdoor lights on and off from my car. They are not lights that I can plug into an outlet. They are currently controlled by a wall light switch inside the house. I was hoping I could simply replace that light switch by one that is wireless enable (315 Mhz is the frequency my Sears remote operates at).
I asked the technical support at X10 is their products would allow me to do that. I ended up buying 2 parts. 1 WS467 wall switch module and 1 TM751 Mini Transceiver. Is that even right ? So far, I plugged a lamp into the mini transceiver and tried to turn it on and off using the Sears remote with no success. Do I need to do anything for the transceiver to "learn" the remote ? Is there a simpler way ?
Please let me know if you can help me ...
