Can I install safety sensors on my existing garage door?

Yes, it is usually possible to install safety sensors on an existing garage door. However, it’s important to make sure that your garage door system is compatible with the sensors. A professional garage door technician can inspect your system and help you determine the best course of action.

How can I tell if my safety sensors are working properly?

There are a few ways to test the functionality of your garage door safety sensors. One method is to place an object in the path of the closing door and see if it stops and reverses as it should. You can also check the sensors for any visible damage or debris that may be blocking their ability to function properly. Both sensors should be lit up and solid. It’s important to note that many brands such as LiftMaster, Chamberlain & Marantec have a green light on one safety sensor and a yellow/orange/red light on the other safety sensor. The reason for this is because one is the “sender” safety sensor & the other is the “receiver” safety sensor; have 2 different colors on your safety sensors is completely normal.

What should I do if my safety sensors are not working properly?

If you suspect that your safety sensors are not functioning properly, it’s important to have them checked by a professional garage door technician as soon as possible. In the meantime, you should not use your garage door until the issue has been resolved to prevent accidents.

Are there any maintenance tasks that I should perform on my safety sensors?

It’s important to keep your safety sensors clean and free of debris to ensure that they are functioning properly. You can use a soft cloth to gently wipe the sensors and remove any dirt or dust. It’s also a good idea to have your safety sensors checked by a professional technician on a regular basis to make sure that they are in good working order.

How high should the garage door safety sensors be mounted off the ground?

According to industry standards, garage door safety sensors should be mounted no more than 6 inches above the ground. This allows the sensors to properly detect objects that may be in the path of the closing garage door, such as small children or pets.

It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installing the safety sensors, as the exact mounting height may vary depending on the specific model. If you’re unsure of the proper mounting height for your sensors, it’s best to consult with a professional garage door technician at Local Garage Doors. They will be able to properly install the sensors at the correct height to ensure optimal safety and performance. We are open from 7am – 9pm; 7 days a week.
