Area Reflective Sensors

They are designed for the opening and closing of the garage doors. They emit infrared rays from Light Emitting Diode machines. The intensity of the reflection of these rays determines the distance of an object from the garage door. It then triggers the garage door to open or close.

CO2 Sensors

Are very advanced options for garage door sensors. They basically measure the amount of CO2 in the garages environment. This is done because the garage environment sometimes accumulates very high levels of CO2 when the vehicles in the garage are warmed up. CO2 is dangerous to humans when inhaled for too long and can cause death. The CO2 sensor will automatically open the garage door when the levels are dangerously high.

Safety Sensors

These are the pressure and infrared sensors. They are designed to ensure that nothing gets crushed under your garage door. The infrared sensor is installed in between the rails, and its two sensors are linked by an infrared beam. When the beam is obstructed, the garage door pulls up. Pressure sensors are positioned at the bottom of the door. It is triggered when pressure is applied to it, such as bumping into something, and it makes the door to open normally.

Monitor Sensors

Designed more or less for the security of your home. They monitor the opening and closing of the garage door and alert the user if the garage door is left open, and yet nothing is coming in or moving out of the garage, they are fit into a panel inside the garage door. They are programmable and can be programmed into different timeframes to control when the garage door opens and closes, also how long it stays open.
