When purchasing an additional remote for your Apollo gate opener it is important to look for the correct product and this can be tricky for someone not familiar with the gate opener system and how it is sold. Apollo gate openers with the 835/836/635/636 series board were never sold with a particular remote. the distributor was given the option to include the remote brand of their choice. So quite literally you could have any remote under the sun. See this video for more details:
GateCrafters.com can help you choose the correct one if you send us a photo of your gate opener remote or your gate opener receiver. One tip for all of our customers as well. There are 10 dips switches in the center of the control board, these are not related to your remote even if your remote has 10 dip switches. We have had that call numerous times after someone purchases the new remote they match the dip switches with the ones they see on the circuit board and it won’t sync. This is because the correct dip switches will be found in the receiver, not on the circuit board.
