Easy to install. Now neighbors will not need to call at night to tell me my side garage door is up.

This product is very easy to install and operate. Only concern is battery operated door unit which needs to be checked annually. Here's an unboxing and installation video: https://youtu.be/16YVkSsFdic

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rich Exactly what I wanted
After two weeks of use I'm very impressed. Installation was simple. I didn't use the wiring clip, just removed the old opener control and attached the 2 wires to the SkyLink opener. The open & hold feature is easy to use and works flawlessly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Alexander77030 Update -- worked for 30 days, then kaput.
I had bought and installed this product. It functioned well for 30 days and then simply ceased working. The batteries were good and the receiver appeared to be, well, receiving... it just stopped closing the garage door and therefore went back to HD. Given my experience, I would have to change my initial recommendation to "stay away"...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tom works good---
So far it has been working pretty good. Wasn't very hard to install myself. This item should be sold in store instead of just on line. A highly needed item for our area of Goodyear,Az. if you have an H O A.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alexander77030 Does what it claims to do - shuts the garage door....
We have had times that the garage door is mistakenly left open - showing everyone passing by tools, carbon fiber bikes and all of my garage treasures... This gadget addresses that problem. It consists of a mechanical "door open" sensor which fits on the bottom of your garage door and signals the wall switch that the door is open. The wall switch simply splices in to the 2 wires of the wall "button" (polarity not important) and then you set the closing delay anywhere from several minutes to 20 minutes. Once the door is open, the wall switch "beeps" regularly and the beep tempo speeds up right before closing so as to get your attention. Build quality is OK. Don't forget to manually INACTIVATE the auto closer if you are working outside or partly move your vehicle outside! A house automation system would be more elegant but this unit also does the job it's meant to. I only have a single garage door and am not sure if this application would work if you more than 1 garage door...

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PeeBunyon Needs Self Tapping Screws
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!"
