Post Help wiring RF receiver to garage door controller

I need help with wiring an RF receiver to my garage door.


The garage door is currently being opened/closed by a 3-state switch that you can see in the image below:

This switch is connected to the motor like this:

The bottom 3 cables are the ones connected with the switch. The top right cables go to the power source and the top left cables are from the motor.

On top of this configuration, I wish to connect my 2-channel transmitter. I bought a Towitek RF receiver (google "TowiTek 2 channel radio-switching system") Could you help me connect it to the current setup? I am an amateur with electricity, so it would benefit most from a stupid explanation of which wire color goes where or maybe a small diagram.

Thank you for taking the time to read my question.

Welcome to the forums.

Your location shows as Ak (Alaska) is that correct or are you from the UK ?

Do you have to hold that button in for "door up" and "door down" ?
You will need to program that remote to mimic that button. I'll help you with that.

I've posted the control box below.... I can't find any wiring connection diagram. You will either have to get it for me or let me know what each terminal is for.

I can theorize the connections....
A = CH-1 N.O.
B = CH-1 COM
C = CH-1 N.C.
D = CH-2 N.O.
E = CH-2 COM
F = CH-2 N.C.
G = 12V IN
H = 12V IN

The receiver runs on 12-15VDC.... have you got that yet ?
Once we get these questions straightened out - the wiring will be fairly easy.
