Genie Intellicode Wiring Instructions


Genie manufactures the Intellicode garage door opener, which changes your door's code each time it is used. A randomly-generated code each time you use the door helps ensure the code will be changed before it can be stolen. The Intellicode requires some minor electrical wiring during installation that can be done in a few steps.

Things You'll Need

  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Socket driver
  • Hex socket set
  • Unwind the limit switch wires and set the twist ties aside.

  • Place the two limit switches on the garage door opener's rail so that the arrows are facing away from the power head. The power head is the motor at the end of the rail that raises and lowers the garage door.

  • Place the switch with the brown wire on the rail 15 inches from the rail strap and insert the included No. 8-32 1-inch Hex head screw into the screw hole.

  • Place the switch with the white wire on the rail 15 inches from the power head and insert the included No. 8-32 1-inch Hex head screw into the screw hole.

  • Lay both the wires in the channel on top of the rail and secure them in place with the included wire clips.

  • Coil excess wire at the power head and tie them together with the twist ties set aside earlier.

  • Wrap the two ends of the brown wire around Terminal Screws 6 and 5 on the power head.

  • Wrap the two ends of the white wire around Terminal Screws 5 and 4 on the power head.

  • Tighten down Terminal Screws 6, 5 and 4 with a Phillips-head screwdriver.

  • Tighten the Hex head bolts in both limit switches with a socket driver and Hex socket.
