The Battery Back-up, is a well-known product that provides homeowners with reliable garage door operation during severe weather, thunderstorms and blackouts.
Our customers in the Plano, Texas area who use a garage door opener for easy, safe and secure access to their garage and home have already found that access to their cars, as well as getting in and out of their garages, are compromised by a powerless garage door opener when there is a power failure. Not only does this cause convenience and transportation issues, it also poses a security threat to families and homeowners who depend on the garage door as the primary entrance and exit from their home.
Plano Overhead Garage Doors Battery Back-up provides reliable garage door operation in the event of electricity outages. It is compatible with the new generation of garage door openers, which combine reliability, speed and power, all with amazing quiet operation. This accessory enables an opener to operate the door at 3.5 inches per second, and, in the event of an extended loss of electricity, the unit will run up to 50 cycles in a 24-hour period after initial power outage. It also reaches full charge within 48 hours and has front facing LEDs that indicate the charge status.
How it works
The battery itself is located inside the unit that mounts to your ceiling. The battery comes standard with most residential garage door openers. Once power is lost to the home, the Battery Backup system automatically begins functioning. Dedicated to full access and safety, the Battery Backup system on the LiftMaster garage door opener operates so all remote controls and garage door opener safety systems work normally. Also, to notify the homeowner that the garage door opener is operating under battery power, a series of recognizable, audible sounds signal when the door is opening or closing. As an added safety feature, a flashing LED light alerts the homeowner when the battery is charging, in use, or when the batteries need to be replaced. The battery, which has a life of roughly three-to-five years under normal use, is warranted for one year from the date of purchase to the original owner.
