Do you already have an applied door opener in your garage? Do you think of finding some substitute for it? What you need is to take all components down and discard all of them. Tossing out the old switches, remoting and evening the wiring (but not in the case it is on top of the drywall of the garage) are necessary. In most of cases your just bought opener will come with all new parts including wall switch, 2 remotes and possibly even an exterior mounted switch with buttons allowing you to put your own password and open and close the door of your dwelling garage.

This is the best suitable capability for your children, especially when they are back from school and want to get into the house. This position is connected with electronic coding that is oftenly built in. The system works in such a way: electronic coding changes the code sent from your remote to the door opener unit in the garage each time you take advantage of this possibility.

Now, you are to check if all the parts necessary for this are present in the just sent package. Put all the parts in packages seperately and now be sure to READ the instructions. They will certainly help you not to waste that much time.

In the package with the door opener you will also find two electronic sensors. You are to apply them near the bottom of the garage door adjacent to the garage door track. The purpose of them is "looking at" each other to send a message to the opener that it is safe to close the door. Remember that if something is within the invisible stream of light passing from one of these to the other, then the door will NOT close. This is a kind of a security system necessary on the condition that little kids or small pets may be standing where the door will close and to avoid injuries. There is one more wire attaching

from each eye that is to be applied all the way to the opener. Be sure to follow certain directions included on how high to lift and how to lift these safety devices. Do not ignore this step as the door opener will NOT run if these are not hooked up and aligned in the right way. Working together they fullfill the function of safety device for the door. The next step is to apply batteries into each remote keeping to the instructions once again. Plug the unit into an outlet and don't forget to try it several times.
