Broken Garage Door System Sensors Fort Lauderdale Florida
It’s a great morning. You’re awake on time, got a good breakfast in you and a nice, snazzy outfit on. You head to your garage and climb in your car, press the button on your keyless entry remote and wait as the door opens, reverse out of the lot then press the button again and…
The garage door doesn’t budge, no matter how many times you press the button. And it’s then you realize your door’s sensors aren’t working.
Garage door sensors are crucial to modern garage doors because they can tell when something is obstructing the door, sending a signal to the opener system that allows the door to open and shut. This small piece of equipment has saved many people from injury and damage to cars and property.
Garage door sensors work by way of “eyes” that emit a beam of infra-red light. Garages have two sensors, one on either side of the door. Both of them need to be working for the garage door to work safely. This means that their infra-red beams have to be lined up. If one or both of the sensors isn’t working, call a service company to check it.
Sometimes, the problem with the sensors is as simple as dirty lenses that the homeowner can simply clean. The two garage door sensors also might be out of alignment. Other problems are more involved and may require the assistance of professionals like those at Garage Door Pros. There might be problems with the wiring or even water damage from rain or rodents chewing the wire and causing a shortage.
