How does the motion sensors and obstruction sensors work?

  • Motion detection requires a wall control panel with a built in motion detector such as the 889LM.
  • Obstruction Status requires Obstruction Detection Beams be installed. This can be purchased from the garage door manufacturer.
  • The ratgdo driver will automatically install the motion sensor portion and obstruction portions. If these are not available on your product configuration then please delete the motion sensor driver or irbeam driver from your project.

What is the remote control lock?

This feature allows you to disable the RF remote control from controlling the garage door. This is useful if the car is parked outdoors or if it is loaned out to someone whom the homeowner does not want to give access to the garage to.
