The patent application (Publication Number: US20240036529A1) describes a method and system for training a transmitter to operate a movable barrier, such as a garage door. The method involves initiating a training mode for the transmitter, monitoring for specific radio frequency communications, receiving an access code from a remote control, generating a derived access code, and confirming the successful learning of the transmitter by the barrier operator. Once trained, the transmitter can receive requests to perform actions on the barrier, such as opening or closing it. The system utilizes mathematical equations to generate and verify access codes, ensuring secure and reliable operation of the movable barrier.

Furthermore, the patent application details the use of specific communication protocols, including bidirectional wireless security protocols and unidirectional security protocols, to facilitate the training and operation of the trainable transmitter. The access code used comprises both fixed and changing components, with derived access codes being generated based on predetermined mathematical equations. The system ensures that the derived access code from the transmitter matches the expected derived access code from the barrier operator, confirming successful learning. Overall, the method and system described in the patent application provide a secure and efficient way to train and operate transmitters for movable barriers, enhancing the overall functionality and security of such systems.
