I somehow doubt it, but I also doubt that you are going to screw anything up by trying it, so follow the instructions for sync'ing them, per your Liftmaster owner's manual, and see what you get.

Its not too likely to be compatible. First the frequency has to be compatible and then the coding is going to be different.
I noticed that Sears has a universal control, but its only suitable to specific types.

As previously mentioned, it won't hurt to try it, but its not likely to work.

I sold both products for years. They work on a different frequency.....so they are not compatible.
