  1. Hi there,

    Which remote would I need for MR650 garage roller door?

    Can I pair with a remote from any third parties?

    I am located in Melbourne. Are there shops around?

    Many thanks,
    Connor

    1. The MR650 originally used the Security+ Remotes ie C945. The Genuine replacement would be one of the newer remotes – E960, E970 or E980 but you would need to change the settings inside the remote to the older system Merlin+ System.
      You can use generic remotes with these as long as they are compatible with the Merlin+ Security series.
      There are plenty of places that you would be able to purchase genuine and generic remotes for this Australia Wide as this is a highly common remote. We do ship Australia-Wide.

  2. I have Merlin 3 Button Remote, it came with the house I bought, I cant remember whether its a Merlin + C945 or Merlin + 2.0 E945

    All numbers from front or back are wiped. Is there any way to identify?

    1. Hi Rohit,
      We can determine this from the model on the motor. Feel free to Contact Us via the website and we can help you determine the correct remote.

  3. Hi Rohit,

    I have a Merlin 230T motor using a M842 remote.

    Will a CM842 remote work with this motor ?

    1. Hi Colin,
      The CM842 is part of the Merlin + Security series and is not compatible with the M842 remote (Green Series). The CM842 remote is no longer produced.

  4. Hi There
    I have a Merlin Commander Elite MS105MYQ, would you know which third party remote would be compatible for this unit?
    Thx

    1. Hi Phung,
      The MS105MYQ is the newest version of Merlin and is under a patent law, therefore there is no after market/generic remote available.
      You have a variety of choices for your system however with the E960, E970, E980, E964 Remotes all working this model of motor.
      Regards,
      Brea – Retro Remotes

  5. Hi Adrian. Would c945 work with this garage opener MS105MYQ

    1. Hi Keith,

      No, the C945 is the Merlin+ remote. The EVO and MYQ range is the Merlin+2.0 range which is the E960 & E970.

      Adrian
