The safety beams and also the photo eye are another essential parts of a garage door opener. We install safety beam and the photo eye in your doors to protect your children and even pets or anyone who would be approaching a closing garage door. The photo eye senses an object coming towards the door and stops it from closing. This happens because it consists of two sensors which are situated at the side of the door, six inches from the ground. A beam is directed by one sensor to the other. If an object comes into contact with the beam, the sensor breaks the circuit preventing the door from closing. This prevents injuries that would be caused by the closing garage door.
