Why Garage Door Sensors Are Important

Garage door sensors are extremely important to the safety of your overhead door system. They work by connecting to the garage door opener and signaling when they detect movement underneath the garage door. For families with kids and pets, this is paramount to garage door safety. It’s common for sensors to become covered in dust or have their photo eyes misaligned, which then stops their operation. In this situation, the opener may flash that there’s an issue and stop the door from moving. It’s critical that this mechanism is in place, as the door can’t operate safely when the sensors are not working. Contact us for garage door opener repair and sensor alignment today!
