An electric garage door has many advantages. Thanks to automation, you can conveniently open and close your garage door from inside your car. Electric garage doors also offer additional safety through optional automatic obstacle detection. The roller garage door stops and reverses when it encounters resistance, which prevents accidents. If you integrate your door into a smart home system, you can control the lock on your garage door while you are away from home to make your garage even safer.
An electric garage door drive makes your everyday life easier. You no longer have to open the garage door by hand; instead you can control it directly from your car or house at the push of a button. This means that you can get in and out of your car quickly if there is rain, snow, hail or cold weather. Time controls offer further advantages. Your garage door closes automatically at a set time, for example shortly after you leave the garage. In addition, you can connect the electric garage door to your smart home system so that you have full control over the locking status of your door while you are away from home. Electric garage doors also ensure greater safety, as they are able to detect obstacles via light sensors and stop the roll-down process automatically. This provides an effective way to prevent damage.
The electric drive for the garage door can be mounted in the garage to the side of the door or in the middle underneath an overhead door. The drive can be started locally with a button in the garage or controlled from outside with a remote control. A motor ensures that the roller garage door or overhead door raises automatically. Light barriers integrated into the garage door and coupled to the motor stop operation when the door encounters an obstacle.
A wide range of solutions are available for controlling your electric garage door: manual control, wall transmitter or code keypad, hand-held remote control app-based control. It is also possible to integrate automatic time controls for your garage door.
