  • The device will turn ON when the code set up is correct

Remind:- You should connect your device to the power outlet, but the device should be turned OFF before starting the setup process.

whether the code begins with the number 0, it should still be entered as part of the code input.

Unfortunately, this remote control doesn’t support the auto-code search method for pairing.
