Sometimes it doesn’t work well most of the time it does.

Took some retrofitting but functionally seems strong

I have the type of doors that swing up so the rail attachment system didn’t work for me. Instead I took the sensors off of the metal brackets and installed directly onto my door and used a wood block to space the sensor out to meet its pair. The door system does not work on 5G wireless so make sure your logged into a 2G wireless system.

Nice nice nice device!

One of the easiest installations I’ve ever done. Works perfectly using 5 additional sub-accounts. Wish there was a way to manage the ‘admin’ settings but it’s prob right in front of me and I’ve yet to see it. Very cool unit that works with an opener from hell so I’m totally impressed. Great Job Tailwind!!!
