MyQ Smart Garage Hub counts as one remote transmitter. Door Opener may have a limit of five remotes. Who knew?

     Is there a limit to the number of remotes an opener will pair with?  When I tried the sixth remote, I lost pairing with MyQ Hub and four remotes, all of which were working good.  I might have held the Red learn button too long and that cleared all the remotes, but I don't think so.
     I have done a lot of research and no ones seems to know of a limit on remotes.  Other than that, my installation of the MyQ smart Hub went quickly and smoothly.  I did learn that you use the App under "Device Management", "Hub", "Garage Door," "Select and Program Opener", to re-pair the MyQ Hub.

I thought one of the instruction manuals had a value of 16 devices, but I would have to dig back through them as it may have been the hub that had that limitation.
You may have to contact Chamberlain on this question.  I haven't see a reply on this site from a Chamberlain support person is weeks.

I can tell you I have the following MyQ equipment connected;
MyQ Hub
4 remotes
2 cars with Homelink
1 wireless keypad
1 remote light switch - slaved to the garage door lights.
1 remote light switch - not connect to the garage door.
2 remote wall switches - not connect to the garage door.

So 9 of the above devices are connected to the garage door.  4 of the devices are connected to the hub .  The light switch that is slaved to the garage door lights had to be connected to both the hub and the garage door.

Thanks for replying.  What is your opener?  I too have seen manuals where the remote limit is higher.  Maybe up to 16, but those were newer openers and not Chamberlain.  I have Chamberlain model 41A5021 about 15 years old.  I plan to test adding a #6 remote but everything is working now so I'm going to let it rest for a while.

Sorry, thought you had a MyQ garage opener.  I don't know on the Security Plus openers.

BTW - I have a Liftmaster MyQ opener with the 828LM wired hub/gateway.
