Garage Door Openers | Best Pick Reports

Automatic garage door openers are a welcome convenience for most homeowners. Current government regulations require all new door openers to be equipped with an automatic stop/reverse and photocells to prevent injury or damage to people and objects in the door’s path. The sensitivity of the stop/reverse can usually be adjusted at the opener.

When the remote control is used to open the door, it transmits a specific code to the opener signaling the door to open. To prevent criminals from obtaining the code, homeowners should consider updating to a newer model opener that uses rolling code technology that automatically changes the code every time the remote is used.
