If you dont have a garage door opener, then a garage door closer wont help you much! It requires an existing garage door opener to operate.
Before I got my auto closer, I spent quite a bit of time researching garage door closers. I was surprised to find that besides electronics hobbyists and their highly technical build your own closer plans, there are only a handful of ready to use closers on the market.
The one closer that I felt offered the most was the Auto Closer. It features 5 different closing time delays that you can choose from: 2, 5, 10, 15, or 20 minutes.
The Auto Closer also comes with a disable button that mounts on the wall next to your open button. The disable button overrides the closer for when you want your garage door to stay open.
So if you leave your garage door open, the closer begins counting down for the amount of time YOU choose. When it reaches zero, it then sends audible and visual alarms that alert anyone around that the garage door is about to close.
Do yourself and your family a favor, get an Auto Closer and forget about all the things that could happen if you or someone you live with accidentally leaves your garage door open.
