What do the opener safety sensors do?
In simple words, opener sensors are in charge of detecting obstacles which may be blocking the way of the door when it tries to close. They are installed on each side of the garage's opening. They send an invisible beam between each other and alert the opener when a potential obstacle breaks that beam. This will cause the door to reverse, and prevent it from hitting the obstacle.
