How Do You Reset a Skytech Remote?

To reset a Skytech remote, set the slide button on the receiver to the Remote position, and then press and hold the Learn button on the receiver for at least 10 seconds. The receiver emits several audible beeps when successfully reset. This technique applies to most Skytech remotes.

Skytech Systems refers to the remote controls it manufactures as transmitters. Transmitters communicate with receivers located within a 20- to 25-foot radius using preprogrammed codes. Receivers store all such codes in a digital memory.

When a receiver's memory is full, the remote is new or people press the Learn button too many times, the receiver may cease to store further codes and respond to the transmitter. With remote-controlled Skytech Systems products, it is the receiver that must be reset when necessary and not the remote.

However, to rule out the possibility that the remote or receiver has malfunctioned or stopped working, check that the batteries in both products are still alive or correctly positioned before attempting to reset the receiver.

As of 2015, Skytech Systems manufactures more than 40 different models of remotes and receivers associated with a variety of Skytech Systems products, such as programmable thermostats, fireplaces and fans.
