Programming a remote control to a SOMMER sliding gate operator
To programme a handheld transmitter to a sliding gate operator
from SOMMER, you need direct access to the sliding gate operator. We show you how to programme a SOMMER handheld transmitter
in just a few easy steps. You can find videos on programming after the step-by-step instructions.
1. Activate programming mode on the sliding gate operator
First, you need to switch the radio receiver of the sliding gate operator to programming mode. To do this, open the housing and press the programming button (Radio button) on the control unit of the sliding gate operator. In programming mode, a red LED lights up.

3. Programme the button on the handheld transmitter
Press the desired button on the handheld transmitter until the previously selected LED for the radio channel blinks and goes out. The handheld transmitter has successfully transferred the radio code to the radio receiver and is now programmed. Repeat the steps above to program further handheld transmitters to this radio receiver.
Handheld transmitters with Somloq2 can be programmed on either a Somloq Rollingcode receiver or a SOMloq2 receiver. However, mixed operation of the Somloq Rollingcode and SOMloq2 on one button is not permitted.
Copy SOMMER handheld transmitter by radio (HFL)
Once one handheld transmitter is programmed on the sliding gate operator, a further handheld transmitter can be programmed via radio (HFL). It is important to note that when copying the handheld transmitter via radio, the handheld transmitter models used must be identical. This means, for example, that a Pearl
can only be programmed on a Pearl and a Pearl Vibe
on a Pearl Vibe.
The key assignment of handheld transmitter A that put the radio receiver into programming mode by radio is used for the new handheld transmitter B that is to be programmed. The already-programmed transmitter and the new transmitter to be programmed must be situated within the range of the sliding gate operator and radio receiver.
Button 1 has been programmed to radio channel 1 and button 2 to radio channel 2 by handheld transmitter A. The newly programmed handheld transmitter B adopts the button assignment of handheld transmitter A: Button 1 on radio channel 1, button 2 on radio channel 2.
1. Press buttons 1 and 2 of a programmed handheld transmitter A for approx. 5 seconds until the LED on the handheld transmitter briefly lights up. The LEDs of the operator lighting blink.
2. Release buttons 1 and 2 of handheld transmitter A. No radio command is transmitted within another 30 seconds, and the radio receiver switches to normal mode.
3. Press any button, e.g. button 3, on the new handheld transmitter B to be programmed. The LEDs of the operator lighting remain steady. The second handheld transmitter has now been programmed.
The following settings are not possible
This function is not possible with the Pearl Twin
Targeted programming of a selected handheld transmitter button to a radio channel.

Universal handheld transmitter for a SOMMER sliding gate operator
Due to encryption and constantly changing radio codes (Rollingcode), it is not possible to transmit the radio code from a SOMMER handheld transmitter to a universal handheld transmitter. For security reasons, handheld transmitters from other manufacturers or universal handheld transmitters cannot be programmed to a sliding gate operator from SOMMER.
