How to program a garage door remote from another remote

This is a job that I did in Carindale, Queensland.

I had to delete and reprogram a Napoleon Garage Door Remote and then clone a new remote onto a Why Evo Remote.

Instructions to update an EVO remote

  1. Press and hold button 1 of the WHY EVO, at the same time press button 2 four times.
  2. Release both buttons. Now the WHY EVO’s WHITE LED will emit a short flash every 2 seconds.
  3. On a flat, non-metallic surface, place the original remote control head to head with the WHY EVO, at a distance of about 5 cm.
  4. Press and hold the button of the original remote control you wish to copy.
  5. Once a correct signal is received, the WHITE LED begins to flash rapidly.
  6. Once correct learning has been achieved, The WHITE LED will change colour to BLUE.
  7. You can now release the button of the original remote.
  8. While the BLUE LED is flashing, select and press and hold the button on the WHY EVO that you want to store the code just learnt.
  9. Keep holding the switch until the LED turns off.
  10. The WHY EVO may now be programmed directly to the Motor/Receiver in the same way as a genuine replacement following the units own User Instructions for the correct procedure. (See the compatibility list overleaf).


  • If the WHITE LED flashes only 3 times and switches off , the code has not been learnt correctly.
  • Please repeat the operation from step 1.
  • The WHY EVO memory is completely re-writable.
  • The remaining buttons of WHY EVO can be used to copy any of the other remotes on the list in this catalogue. Please repeat the procedure from step 1 for each additional remote to be copied.
