Automatic Reverse Feature
A federal law passed in 1993 made garage door opener manufacturers and installers include an automatic reversing feature required for every new garage door opener installed. A garage door auto-reverse works by the use of photoelectric eyes mounted at the base of your garage door on either side. When something obstructs the connection between these two eyes when your garage door opener is engaged to shut, the system automatically reverses the door so that whatever is obstructing the eyes is not harmed by the closing of your garage door.
Rolling Code Technology
Many people ask us about rolling code technology and why it’s an important feature for the safe operation of your garage door. Without rolling code technology someone with a radio remote control who has the same radio frequency as your garage opener has can open your garage door. But, with rolling code technology, a unique algorithm changes the remote control’s code to one of the more than 100 billion possible codes. Your garage door automatically trashes the previous code and a new code is generated each time the remote is used.
Battery Back System
Every garage door is equipped with a manual release so that you can exit or enter your garage in the event of a power outage. But, a manual garage door release is not always easily released, especially if your vehicle is parked directly under the manual release. A battery backup system for your opener gives you peace of mind knowing your garage door will operate as it should regardless of stormy conditions.
