When you're always on the go, the Chamberlain 956D mini multi-function remote control is a welcome addition to your keychain. No more worrying about your garage door opener falling from your visor or losing it while trading vehicles; you'll always have it handy when it's attached to your keys. This small, slim and incredibly versatile three-button remote features Security+ rolling code technology that sends a new code to your unit each time it's used; that gives you the highest level of protection available. The 956D comes with a 5-year, 3-volt battery that's designed to last. However, it can be replaced with a CR2032 3-volt lithium battery when necessary.
Because the Chamberlain 956D is designed to work with garage doors that have a purple "Learn" button on the motorhead. These garage doors operate on a frequency of 315 MHz, so they're compatible with various brands and models. This is the same model as the Liftmaster 37 OLM, which is a black keychain-sized garage door opener. You can use the Chamberlain 956D to replace or complement a garage door opener with black buttons, and it's designed to work with Chamberlain garage door openers that were manufactured after June 1, 2005.
This miniature multi-function 3-button remote control can operate up to three garage doors or gates, or a combination of the two. It can also turn garage door opener lights on and off and be used to activate lights and small appliances inside your home.
The Chamberlain 956D mini multi-function remote control is right for you if:
- Your garage door opener was made after June 1, 2005
- Your garage door opener is a "D" model
- Your original remote control has black buttons
- The motorhead on your garage door opener has a purple "Learn" button or operates on the 315 MHz frequency
QUESTION: I lost the one to our opener, we have 4 Chamberlin garage door openers. I want to use the one that is on door 3 three. I programed it and now door three opens up along with door 1, how do I stop door 3 from opening? by Bill L 8/3/2015
ANSWER: You have to clear all the codes on the door three 3 garage door unit. Your remote garage door opener will then open only the one 1 garage door unit since that code is still saved. Check your manual for instructions on clearing code on the number three garage door unit. by Paul M a
ANSWER: To deactivate any unwanted remote, first erase all codes;<br />Press and hold the learn button on unit until the learn indicator light <br />goes out approximately 6 second. All previous codes are now erased. Reprogram each remote or keyless entry you wish to use. I hope this works for you, just erase the one you don't need. by Daniel P a

ANSWER: They work with the chamberlain and are exactly the same except they are black and say liftmaster instead of chamberlain. They worked out great. Since this was over a year ago, I will have to go home to look at the actual model number because I am not sure which model the 370LM is referring to. If you attach a pic I can tell you which one it is. by A L a
