My car is almost as long as my garage. The obstruction sensors are at floor level, which means they do not detect the 'nose' of the car when it's obstructing the garage door. I'd like to leave the sensors at floor level (to detect packages, dead bodies, bags, stuff left on the floor, etc.) and add a second pair of sensors higher up, roughly where the car would be.
Is this as simple as buying a second pair of sensors, and wiring them into the existing ones? Or should I just move the existing sensors further up?
If it is that simple, what is the significance of 'one color' when looking at buying pairs of sensors? Do I need to ensure they are a different color to the existing ones installed lower down? garage door repair norfolk
I have a Chamberlain myQ garage door opener, less than a year old. I've got the tennis ball to show me when I'm far back enough, just want to stop the door closing when the car is in the way.
In industry it frequent to use immaterial safety fence for avoid operator put her hand of dangerous place of the machine. If operator put her hand at dangerous place the machine is stopped. It may a good idea it may a good idea for stopped the close of your door when the car is detected.
