Product description and properties

If you have chosen to invest in a gate operator from the prestigious HÖRMANN brand because your remote control is no longer functioning, it is time to replace it with a new compatible model. The original HORMANN HSM4 40MHz remote control will allow you to control your motorized gate remotely in a very simple way !

This transmitter is programmed from the receiver. It has 4 buttons and is easily used by its ergonomics.

Important information

NOTE : The name HSM2/4 written on the back is not the reference.

Please note: The colour of the buttons is very important for this brand because it is linked to the frequency. Remote controls with different frequencies are not compatible. 

Please be sure to choose a model that has buttons of the same colour as your current remote. The model displayed here has grey buttons. 


ATTENTION : Please do not confuse this transmitter with the Hormann HSM4 868MHz, which has blue buttons. Or with the models with green buttons HÖRMANN HSM4 27.015 MHZ or HÖRMANN HSM4 26.975 MHZ.


WARNING: This model is not compatible with the HORMANN 868 Mhz remote with blue buttons.

Good to know

Choose a remote control that operates under the same frequency as your original model to guarantee the compatibility of the two items. Otherwise, your remote won’t function on your automatism. The coding system of your new device also must be identical to the one of your original remote control to successfully control your motorized gate. 

It is important to know that there are three types of programming (coding systems) : Switches, auto-programming, and programming in the receiver. 

To choose the correct remote control, it is highly recommended to consider the following criteria : the brand, the frequency, don’t neglect neither the number and the colour of the remote control buttons. These elements are usually used by the manufacturers to identify their products.

How to program HORMANN HSM4 40MHz remote control ?


Important steps of the programming

Remark: The programming will incite the opening of your garage door. To avoid an accident, we recommend that you program your remote control while you are inside of your garage.

Programming of your new remote control:

There are several methods for programming your new remote control

1- Remote-to-remote programming : 

Attention : During the coding process, if you press one of the buttons of the new remote first, yiou risk erasing the codes of all your already programmed remotes.

  • Place an already-programmed remote control next to the new one so they touch, press a button on your old remote control.

  • Keep the button of your already-programmed remote pressed, press the same button on your new remote till the LED light on your new remote control blinks slowly. Wait 5 seconds till the LED light blinks faster.

  • Let the button go and repeat the procedure for each button you wish to program.

  • Wait 10 seconds, your new remote control is now programmed !


2- Receiver-based programming :

Attention : Only use this method if you currently do not have any functional remote. This method erases all the already-programmed remotes.

  • Aach your receiver located next to your motor. On the receiver, press the programming button P. When the led on the receiver blinks slowly, let the button go.

  • Press the button you wish to program on your new remote control. Keep it pressed down. When the LED on the receiver blinks faster and then turns off, let the button go.

  • Wait 10 seconds.

  • Your new remote control is programmed.


3- Programming of your new Hormann HSM4 remote control from Horman DH remote that has already been programmed :

  • Open the casing of your already-programmed remote. On the receiver board, you will see a row of 10 small programmable switches, numbered 1 to 10 that are in the ON or OFF position. The position of these small switches determines the system programming code. 

Please make a note of the positions.

  • Open the casing of your new remote control. Press the red  button next to the battery, the LED light on the new remote illuminates.

  • Enter your programming code as follows : 

  • The top button of the remote corresponds to the ON position of the internal programmable switches.

  • The bottom button of the remote corresponds to the OFF position of the internal programmable switches.

  • When you set the position of the last switch, the LED on your new remote blinks.

  • Your new remote control is programmed.

« The instructions could be explained much clearer, eventually had to go to youtube to find out how to programme it as the old remote did not work to synchronise the new handset and the old one. »
