Questions & Answers

Can the magic-T Beam Replacements install to existing wires?

Can the magic-T Beam Replacements install to existing wires?
Asked by: Pete
Yes for us. We needed to follow the wiring of the prior set, which included two pairs of wires on the sensor end and a single pair on the transmitter end. The instructions show only one pair on each end.

does the necessary wire come with these sensors

Asked by: herb
No wiring comes with the sensors. You connect the previous wires from the old sensors to the new ones.

My garage door sensor don't work. It's a genie with the old square sponsor's with pig tails one light on the one.

Can I use this kit to repair it?
Asked by: Charles
Charles, Had the same situation. Yes this product will work just fine. Be sure to replace each sensor identically, i.e., the two LED lighted sensor with the old two LED lighted sensor and the single LED sensor with the single LED sensor. Also, use the old wires to the overhead unit and tie the new sensors in with correctly sized wire nuts.

Safe-T-Beam- Garage Door Safety Sensors - Replacement Kit for All Genie Garage Door Openers is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 247.

I like how it is easier to see the red and green lights on the sending and receiving units. I would have given the sensors a 5-star rating if the Sensors detached from the mounting frame as the printed instructions indicated and if the holes for the mounting screws had lined up better with those in the earlier model I was replacing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy fix if you are handy After 15 years of trouble-free service, my 1997 Safe-T-Beam sensor intermittently prevented the door from closing. The red LED on the STB transmitter module would blink 4 times, pause, and repeat, indicating the transmitter was not sending pulses to the receiver module across the garage. You can override the STB system by pushing and holding the wall control button until the door is completely closed, but it is much more satisfying (and much safer) to fix the problem. You can certainly replace the sensors using this kit. Or, armed with a Phillips screwdriver and a soldering iron, you can easily fix the transmitter instead of sending it to the landfill (I mean recycle it, of course!). In my case, the problem was the solder holding the IR LED (infrared light emitting diode) pins to the circuit board inside the transmitter module had cracked, probably from 15 years of thermal stress. Follow these steps to fix this problem. 1)Remove 2 screws to open the transmitter module. 2)Remove the screw holding the circuit board in place. 3)Remove the circuit board and locate the IR LED, which is the clear plastic bulb pointed at the lens. 4)Flip the board over and locate the IR LED mounting pins. The cracked solder is easily visible with a magnifying glass. 5)Re-solder the pins to the circuit board. 6)Reassemble the module and enjoy 15 more years of service!

Unfortunately I was not able to mount these to the walls as intended due to my garages configuration but mounted directly to the track rails instead. They were super easy to wire in and have worked flawlessly for a few weeks now.

Thought I’d give these a try before going all in on a new system. Glad I did! The new sensors have done the job. Money well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works nicely Easy to install. Works great. I was bummed that my garage door wouldn't close. I had to repeatedly push the button because it kept wanting to open back up. After replacing the old sensors with these, my problem is gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe T Beam sensors My garage door opener is 15 years old and these sensors worked perfectly on it. Easy to install. Price is competitive with similar ones sold at big box home improvement stores and these are name brand sensors.
