More About Garage Door Openers

Garage Door Opener Components

Typical components of standard remotes include:

Remote control and wall-mount buttons or keypads that open and close the garage door.

A manual release to disengage the opener in case of a power outage and raise or lower the door manually.

A security light that activates when you operate the system and turns off automatically after a set period.

Features to Consider

  • Auto-close option to lower the garage door automatically after a pre-programmed time.
  • Battery backup to operate the opener in the event of a power outage.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi to connect the opener directly to your home wireless network. This lets you operate the door from a mobile app without the need for an automation system.
  • Home automation system connectivity to control your opener remotely.
  • Included rail extensions to make the opener compatible with 8-foot-high doors.
  • Locks to prevent remotes from accidentally opening the garage door.
  • Miniature keychain remotes fit in a pocket.
  • Motion-sensing security lights operate automatically.
  • Soft-start & stop motors to make operation quieter.
  • Smart-device compatibility to control your opener with your mobile phone.
  • Vehicle compatibility to operate the opener from controls built into some vehicles.

Safety and Security Features

If you have an opener that was manufactured before January 1, 1993, we strongly recommend upgrading the device to take advantage of safety and security features.

Modern openers have auto-reversing mechanisms that consist of electronic sensors installed at the base of the door, which reverses the opener the moment it detects a person, animal, or object.

Today, you can find garage door openers that transmit a one-time-use code to activate the opener. This is called the rolling code technology. So, every time you use it, the remote and your opener randomly choose a new code, which improves security.
