Transfering the code to a Hormann HSE 4 BS hand transmitter

Hormann HSE 4 BS Transfer Code Instructions

Info Sheet: ABi011.1 – Transfering the code from an existing HSE 4 BiSecur transmitter to a new BiSecur transmitter
Series 3 Hand Transmitters

Please note: To transfer the code from one hand transmitter to another, the signal strength needs to be very strong. This means the units need to be very close together and have a good battery power.

The procedure is more reliable if the receiving transmitter is on the left hand side, ideally in direct contact with the sending / existing transmitter, with their tops level (see image below).

Transferring the code from a BiSecur hand transmitter to a BiSecur hand transmitter.

Hormann HSE 4 BS Transfer Code Example

(Please be aware this will activate your device / garage door!)

1. Press and hold the button on your existing hand transmitter (which has the code you want to transfer.)
The LED will illuminate constantly then start to flash red and blue, keep the button pressed down until the code has been successfully transferred.

2. Once the first hand transmitter has started to flash red and blue, press and hold the button on the hand transmitter which is to receive the code. The LED will flash blue slowly for a few seconds then flash quickly for a few seconds, and then stop with no illumination.

Please note: On later edition transmitters, when receiving a code, the LED will show solid blue for a couple of seconds before flashing blue slowly for a few seconds then flashing quickly for a few seconds, and then stopping with no illumination.

The code has now been transferred. You can continue this process to transfer the code to different buttons.

I try to transfer the code from an existing HSE4-868-BS to a new one.
when pressing and holding the button which holds the code on the existing transmitter, it stays solid red and does not start flashing red & blue.
Any idea why?

Hi Bart, If the light is on solid red the hand transmitter is in series 2 mode. It is only series 3 mode that the light will be blue then flash red and blue. Is it set up to work with a series 2 operator?

i try to transfer the code from my hse5-868-bs to an hse2-868-bs but while my transmitter works ok (flashing red and blu) the receiver does the same thing (flashes red and blu) instead of flashing blu

Sometimes the process can be a bit temperamental. If the receiving transmitter is flashing red and blue, it has not detected the transmitting code. You need to make sure the receiving transmitter is on the left-hand side as this seems to be more reliable, and the units are touching with the tops level. It can take a few attempts. It also might be worth trying a new battery in the existing transmitter.

We’ve just had a Hormann garage door fitted today & it came with 2 HSE4-868-BS transmitters.

We would ideally like to be able to use 3 transmitters, would it be possible to program a third one or is there a limit of transmitters that can be paired with the control unit? (We have a Promatic opener)

Yes you can add additional transmitters no problem. You can clone the code from an existing transmitter so there is no limit on how many you can use.
