The 140V DC, 1 HPc Power Plus motor is one of the strongest in the industry for effortless operation on even heavy doors.

A motion sensor turns the lights on when you enter the garage and off automatically after you leave, while an optional battery back-up allows the door to open and close in the event of a power outage.

The wireless communication adapter lets you to add features now or in the future, such as the Closed Confirm Remote, which notifies you up to 1,000′ away when the door has closed.
