First unit sent was defective. Called company and they immediately sent a replacement. Great for security when you get involved elsewhere and forget you left the garage door open.

I lost a $1,500 bicycle because I left my garage door open overnight! I wish I had known this product existed. The price is fair, the device seems straightforward enough. Because I have good knowledge of electricity and some small drill bits I was able to install it fairly quickly. My home was built in 1979 (Sun City West, AZ) and the garage door closing button is not the normal 3" square plastic box you find located on the wall inside your garage next to the door leading into the house. Mine was inside the door of the laundry/golf cart room, and it was a single metal push button located inside a standard metal switch box inside the wall. The first problem was mounting the garage door unit. They give you 4 wood screws to attach it to a metal garage door...duh?? I happened to have different screws but even they required pre-drilling tiny holes in metal. This is where I usually snap my little drills off before finishing. I took it real easy and didn't break the correct size drill bit. I got the thing mounted securely. (They also supply a double sided tape that might do the trick in some places, but I was pretty certain it would not hold up long term during my hottest summer days where the hottest place is near the bottom of my garage door.)
Then I got to the inside unit. The plastic clamp they provided for connecting the electrical wires could not handle the larger wire size contained in my home's unit. I ended up just cutting off the simple "click-on" connecter, then baring enough wire to secure this new unit to my original button's two screws. Easy. Then taking the double sided tape meant for the other unit, slapped it on the back of this unit and stuck it to the sheetrock wall right next to the original button. I then used the two longer wood screws included to screw the new unit into the sheetrock. (I should have had plastic inserts for the sheetrock but had none on hand.)
I replaced my original unit's button switch plate and the job was done. The unit works great. I set mine for 2 minutes. Everything else works just as it used to; indoor button, programed button in the van, and remote in the pickup. I have some elderly neighbors who need this unit...."Hey Ed, you left your garage door open!" "No I didn't, I painted part of the floor and I'm letting the fumes escape."
I should not worry about neighbor's doors I guess. I was halfway to Oregon from Arizona last summer, in the middle of Nevada to be exact, when the wife says, "Did we close the garage door? I don't remember saying 'DOOR DOWN'." We called Ed. The garage door was wide open! Ed closed our door for us. And it took the loss of a very expensive recumbent tricycle bike to make me find and install this great item. How stupid can I be? My suggestion: If you are packed and ready for a trip, don't get excited and park your rig facing away from the garage door so that you can make a quick getaway in the morning dawn. You may forget to say, "DOOR DOWN!"

Easy to install. Replaced my wall unit from sear closer that is just open and close. With the auto wall unit you can turn on/off the opener light and can lock out remotes with this wall unit. Beep is subtle and not annoying. Overall don't know why i didn't have this. No more kids leaving the garage door.

Bought this "Automatic Garage Door Closer when you forget" in July of 2014. It was easy to mount in minutes and worked right away.
However, only 19 months later it stopped working. I tried all the usual things such as replacing the battery, unplugging it for a few minutes to reset it etc. no sound just blinking lights. The warranty is one year. Too bad.

I was concerned how well it would work when I ordered it, but the product works exactly as described and as I'd hoped it would. No longer do I have to worry that the garage door will accidentally be left open. It has a slightly annoying beep that goes off until either you close the door, or it automatically shuts based on the time you selected (2mins, 5, 10, 30). I walk around the neighborhood and wonder why everyone doesn't have one of these. All the items that could be stolen from you garage, or easy entry into your home can be solved with a very inexpensive product. Get one!! It will be a gift for family this year!
