1. IMPORTANT INFORMATION

WARNING

Moving Door can cause serious injury or death.

• Wall control must be mounted in sight of garage door, at least 5 feet above floor and clear of moving parts.
• Keep people clear of opening while door is moving.
• Do Not allow children to play with remote or door opener.

If Safety Reverse does not work properly:
• Close door, then disconnect opener using manual release handle.
• Do Not use remote or door opener.
• Refer to Door and Door Opener Owner’s Manuals before attempting any repairs.

Electrical Shock can cause serious injury or death.
• Power cord must be unplugged before attaching any wires.
• Be sure wire ends do not touch each other or other terminals.
If you have questions or if you need a manual, contact the distributor or manufacturer of the opener.

2. MOUNTING SOURCE & SENSOR

Locations of existing units can be reused if that is desired. Safe-T-Beam® System (STB) Source and Sensor do not have to be mounted on garage door frame. They can be placed anywhere along garage door wall that is convenient for mounting, provided the location meets the following requirements:
1) They must be placed across the door opening,
2) at the proper height,
3) with a clear line of sight between them. (Max. Range is 30 feet).
(They may be mounted on the floor, only as a last resort, if there is
no other option. Not recommended.)

1. To ease mounting, source and sensor units can be detached from the bracket by pulling them apart. After mounting brackets, slide units back onto brackets.

Installing Genie Safe-T-Beams replacements instructions Step 1

2. Ensure there will be an unobstructed path between source and sensor. Sensor should be mounted on the side of the garage door opening that receives the least direct sunlight.

Step 2 Replacing the Genie garage door opener Safe-T-Beam system

3. Once the location is established, measure the height of bracket as shown. Hold the bracket in place and mark hole locations. 1/8" pilot holes are recommended.

Installation of Safe-T-Beams for Genie garage door openers Height instructions

*No height adjustment is needed for units mounted on floor.

3. WIRE RUN

Reuse of existing wiring is easiest and recommended unless it is broken, cut, frayed or there is a problem. If you can reuse existing wiring — SKIP FORWARD TO STEP 4. If new wiring must be installed, the path shown below is recommended.

1. Route two (2) lengths of two (2) conductor wire (See above) from opener, along top of rail.
Fasten wire to rail.
— Evenly space fasteners along rail.
Fasten to header and wall (preferably with insulated staples). Allow for some slack at the source and sensor units and cut off any excess wire.

4. SAFE-T-BEAM® SYSTEM TEST

Safe-T-Beam® System must be installed and working properly in order for door opener to function.

CAUTION: During testing of the Safe-T-Beam® System, be sure to stay clear of the door and any moving parts. It is preferable to use a long-handled object to interrupt the beam during tests.

1. Start door moving in close direction.

2. Pass an object through the path of the Safe-T-Beam® System in order to interrupt beam.
— Door should stop and reverse direction to fully open position.

If door will not run in closed direction, check for these or see chart below:
• Misalignment of Safe-T-Beam® System (Red LED on source unit will be blinking).
• Obstruction in path of beam.
• Pinched or broken wire.
• Loose wiring connection.

Genie Safe-T-Beam System Self Diagnostic troubleshooting Guide

 

Safe-T-Beam technology uses a continuous infrared beam that projects across the interior of the garage door opening to a receiver at all times. In order for your garage door to operate, the beam must be located at least five inches, but no more than six inches, from the floor, and it should be aligned so that the sensors “see” each other. During closing, if the beam is interrupted by a person, animal or object, Safe-T-Beam automatically raises the garage door to protect whatever is in its path. Please note that the garage door opener will not close the door unless Safe-T-Beam® is installed and working properly.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Will these work with the Genie powerlift 900?

    Yes, they are compatible.

  • Ihave to hold button in to open the door is this sensor problem.

    If you have to press and hold the wall console button to close the garage door, then it could be a problem with your safe-t-beams. You should have one solid red and one solid green light on your safe-t-beams. If you have a red blinking light you can check the diagnostic chart here. If one of the lights is off, you will want to check the wiring. You can contact our customer service at 1-800-354-3643 for assistance.

  • Will this sensor kit work with IS,ISL series model

    Yes these safety beams will work on the IS/ISL Genie garage door opener models.

  • Will these work with Genie 1/2 HP Model IS/550/A?

    Yes these safety sensors will work on the IS550/A garage door opener

  • Will these sensors work with a model ISD 1000 opener?

    Yes, they will!

  • I have a model 2028 opener and went to buy replace the safe T beam .but I don’t know this kind safe T beam part can work or not?

    Yes, these will work with the 2028 model garage door opener.

  • I have a model 3060L-07/M opener and need to replace the Safe-T-Beam sensors as they are malfunctioning. Is this the replacement sensor pair for this model? I am unable to locate a model that looks like the ones that came with the opener. Thanks.

    Yes, these Safe-T-Beams will work on the 3060L-07/M model garage door opener.

  • I have an older model Genie model 1560/M. Will these sensors work for this model?

    Yes, they will.

  • My old Blue Max garage door opener functions fine; however, for a couple of days now, the lights remain lit all the time. I tried trying to possibly reset the system by tripping the breaker, but to no avail. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    This could be caused by a few different things. In order to eliminate these, here are a few steps to try.

    First, you would want to remove the wall button from the wall. Then take the wires off the back of it and leave them off.

    You would then want to run the unit with a remote, then wait at least five minutes and the light should time out. If they do go out, you would want to replace the wall console. 

    If they do not, then you would want to remove the wall button wires from the powerhead. Again, run the unit with a remote, wait the five minutes and see if they go out. If they do, you would want to replace the wall button wire from the wall button to the powerhead.

    If they do not go out after both of these then this would be an issue with the circuit board.

  • Is there a setting that will turn on the opener lights if the sensor beam is broken? If the garage door is open for a while, I want the opener lights to turn on if someone walks in or out of the garage, breaking the beam.

    No, there is not.

  • Can you connect two (or more) of these to one opener? One installed low for safety and the other at bumper height to make sure the car is far enough in the garage for the door to close and not hit it.

    No, two pairs cannot be connected to one opener. The Safe-T-Beams should be installed between 5 and 6 inches off the floor to meet safety requirements.

  • what is the phone number for the help line

    Our Genie customer service can be reached at 1-800-354-3643 for troubleshooting and technical assistance.

  • Will it work with a CM860IC?

    Yes, these Safe-T-Beams will work with the CM8600IC model garage door opener.

  • I just bought a house with a Genie Pro 82 garage door opener but it lacked a Genie Safety Beam Sensor... can I have my electrician install your current beam advice? If so what additional wiring etc do I need? If this can not be retro fitted which Genie product would you recommend to get this safety device installed on my existing doors?

    No, these will not work with the Pro 82. In order to get the updated safe-t-beams added to your garage, you would need to upgrade the garage door opener to a new one. You can view our current model garage door openers here. If you have any questions about any of them, please let us know!

  • Are these compatable with Model #1SD 1000?

    Yes, they are!

  • Hi will these sensors work with my 1/2 HP Genie Screw Drive Model 12A??

    The 12A is a receiver number, can you double check what the model number is on the garage door opener? This is normally under the light bulb cover or on the back panel of the powerhead. If you need assistance finding this, please contact Genie customer service at 1-800-354-3643.

  • do you sell the plug in wires that goes to the older sensors

    This depends on which model garage door opener you have. We sell the Pigtail assembly that worked with certain models manufactured around 1993 to 1995. For assistance please contact Genie customer service at 1-800-354-3643.

  • Are these compatable with Model ACSR1G? Also what all comes with the sensors?

    What model is your garage door opener? The ACSR1G is a remote model, and if it works with your garage door opener so should these Safe-T-Beams. These Safe-T-Beams come with just the two beams.

  • Will this work with model 1S550/A? Thank you.

    Yes, they will!

  • Are these Safe-T-Beam sensors good for -40C, mine after 10 min with the door opened is not working anymore I need to know if I have to replace it or no.

    The Safe-T-Beams were tested to work down to -40C., but if the temperature dips below that it is possible they may not work.

  • I replaced the very old Genie sensors of which only one had 2 wires going to it and was blinking red, I assume that was the transmitter. Receiver turned Green on new sensor, then plugged in red, it flickered red and neither light is now on no matter what I do. Is this likely a bad wire? Or since I forgot to turn off unit could I have blown the new sensors? Thanks!

    This sounds like a bad wire most likely. These are low voltage, and should not have "blown" anything. We would suggest checking the wires, and if you need assistance please contact Genie customer service at 1-800-354-3643, we would be happy to assist in resolving this issue.

  • Is this compatible with the SD 5050

  • are these sensors compatible with model 2560?

    Yes, they are!

  • GARAGE DOOR NOT GOING UP WITH REMOTE IT WILL GO DOWN BUT NOT UP THE WALL BUTTON WORKS BUT U HAVE TO HOLD IT IN A LITTLE FOR IT TO WORK . IT DOES GO UP ABOUT A FOOT THEN STOPS

    If you have to hold the wall button in to get the door to go open, this sounds like a may be an issue with your door balance or the force settings on your garage door opener. What model is your garage door opener?

  • Are these compatible with H8000D?

    Yes, they are!

  • Will this work with my screw drive 1/2hp Model G5500. I ask because the existing wiring has 2 plug like ends with (2 wires going to each plug) for the original equipment for a total of 4 wires coming into the each sensor. I am assuming I would just clip the ends off each plug and attach them to the screws on the new sensor.

    Yes, these will work as you described.

  • are these compatible with model IS550

    Yes, these Safe-T-Beams will work with the IS550 model garage door opener.

  • Hello, I have a Genie Garage opener, we bought the whole thing and was mounted by a professional. The sensors are small square boxes and worked like a charm. The other day I must have knocked out the red blinking light one with a garbage can. It popped open and I found out about it only when the garage door wouldn't close. I closed the small square box with red blinking light. The green light is on steady, not blinking. I have been trying to adjust the one with red blinking light but it does not work. I opened it again, there is a circuit board in it, with a small glass bulb that must be the emitter. Nothing is broken on the circuit board. The red light flashes continuously. I aligned it all and put it back together but the garage door won't close. I am able to override with wall button so power is on etc. What is the cause and solution? Thank you.

    How many times is the red one blinking? It should be 2, 3, or 4 times then a pause.

  • Are these compatible with model GXL9550?

    Yes, they are.

  • Are the safeTbeams compatible with model 7055?

    Yes, they are!

  • Want to make sure these sensors are compatible with the H 8000-07

    Yes, these Safe-T-Beams will work with the H8000-07 model garage door opener.

  • I have a Genie Model 2028. One of the sensors is not working. (The garage door opens and closes, but the red light on the sensor doesn't work.) Are the Safe-T-Beam® Garage Door Opener Safety Sensors compatible with Model 2028 and do I need to replace both sensors or just the one that isn't working? Thank you.

    Yes, these Safe-T-Beams are compatible with the 2028 model garage door opener.

  • Are these compatible with the1/2 hp model CM8600IC/A Residential Door Operator?

    Yes, they are.

  • Will this work with the Genie 1/2HP screwdrive?

    They should. We would need to confirm with the model number of your garage door opener. The model number should ne on the pwoerhead of your garage door opener either under the light bulb cover or on the back panel.

  • I have a Genie 1/2 HP screw drive Model GXL. It was installed December, 1992. It complies with UL 325, effective Jan. 1, 1993. Today the SAFE-T-BEAM does not blink when the beam is obstructed. The beams are housed in 3"x3"x1" black boxes. The box with the red light is ON but does not when beam is broken. I can close the door by holding the wall switch until the door contacts the floor, other wise, the door stays up. Do I need new SAFE-T-BEAM sensors? Are new sensors compatible with my 1992 Genie?

    Hi David -

    We would need to know your exact model number, we also would need to know if the sensor you are using have a 3 wire pigtail connector (these were used on optional beams).  If the unit has a 2 wire pigtail connector then the sensors we have now will work, as long as you utilize the pigtail connector that plugs in at the motorhead from your existing sensors and cut/splice it into the new wire for the new beams.  There is a possibility that your issue could be coming from the wire.  Typically we would have you perform a short wire test, but because your garage door opener is equipped with beams that have a pigtail connector this is more difficult to do. Please reach out to us at 1-800-354-3643 and we can provide you more guidance over the phone.

  • Will this work with a chamberlain MyQ?

    No. These Safe-T-Beams® will not work with the Chamberlain MyQ garage door openers.

  • Are geni sensors compatible with lift master opener

    No, they are not.

  • Can I use two sets? One down low as instructed and another set up at bumper level of my car to prevent the garage door from scraping my car bumper if the car is not parked correctly? If it is possible do you have instructions on how to wire and connect two sets into the opener?

    No, you cannot use two sets of Safe-T-beams on one garage door opener.

  • Do these sensors work with a Genie CM7500 8S opener? I'm not sure when it was manufactured.

    Yes, they will as long as you have the original plugs that came with the unit for the add on Safe-T-Beams.

  • I just got new Safe-T-Beam® Garage Door Opener Safety Sensors. after installed, red one is still keeping 3 flash. Green is solid. do you know where is the issue? I need your help.

    Three blinks normally means interference. Do you have more than one garage door?

  • the wiring going into the sensor on my old unit went bad. Do these new sensors come with wiring? if so, does the wiring go from the sensor to the garage door opener? thanks

    These new Safe-T-Beams do not come with the wiring. You can replace the wiring only if that is what is needed. We have 25ft and 90ft rolls.

  • Will these sensors work with a pcg 400 model?

    Yes, they will.

  • do these sensors work with model is550?

    Yes, they do!

  • I am looking of replacement sensors for a Genie Pro Max model PMX 500 iC/B garage door opener. This opener was installed in 2002.

    You can use these Genie Safe-T-Beams for th PMX500 IC/B. The are a different shape now, but will operate the same.

  • Have Genie Pro Screw Drive. Model # CM8600IC/A . Stoped closing from remote but will close when the wired button on garage door is held in until the door fully closes. Opens fine with remote or one push on the wired button. Assume this problem is from faulty sensors but want to confirm before purchasing.

    It sounds as if you may have an issue with the safety beams or wiring on your unit. Here are a few things to check. Both of the safety sensors should be lit and solid one red, and one green. If one or both of them are out it is an indication there is a wiring issue. You will want to first be sure the connection on the beams and head is secure. If only one light is off, please disconnect the beam that is not lit and connect it to the wiring on the side that is lit. If the beams light up replace the wiring to the beam on the non-lit side, if not replace the beams. You can also call 1-800-354-3643 for further assistance.

  • Hi. Are they compatible with genie blue max model 12 a? I did connect them to the opener and no response. Thank you.

    They are as long as you have the plugs for the plugin beams that would have been optional on the Genie BlueMax models. You would have to cut the end of the plugs for the Safe-T-Beam ends and use those wires to wire to these new Safe-T-Beams.

  • Is this work to model #1028? Do I need to replace both sensor if only the red side is not working?

    These Safe-T-Beams do work with the 1028 model garage door opener. This will come with both the red and green beam, if you only need to replace the red one, that would be fine.

  • Can I open and close the door without using the sensor beams?

    No, the Safe-T-Beams have to be installed to close the garage door.

  • My STB system suddenly started to show obstruction, although there is nothing on the way of the beam. The Genie Screw Drive Door Operator I have is pretty old. It's definitely older than 10 years but maybe as old as of 1987, when the house was built. The manual is for IS, ISL and IC series. In any case, the STB parts look different from your newer ones. I guess, the STB system may need a replacement and I wonder if the new parts are compatible with my door operator. Thanks...

    These are compatible with your IS, ISL, IC series garage door opener. The look/style has changed, but they are compatible.

  • are these sensors the right ones for model isl950/a

    Yes, they are!

  • Is it possible to add safety sensors to a pre 1993 Genie Model 450?

  • Is this compatible with model 2560?

    Yes, they are.

  • I have a Genie SilentMax 1000 Model 3042 opener. When sunlight shines on the sensors the garage door will not shut. What replacement sensor is the best solution?

    Have you tried switching the sides of the current Safe-T-Beams? (moving the red one to where the green is, and green to where the red is). Depending on how the sun is coming into the garage this could resolve the issue.

  • both red and green lights are on, but the garage door won't close. please advise

    Are both the red and green lights on and solid, or is the red LED light flashing? When you try to close the door does it start down then stop and go back up, or does it not go down at all? Will it close all the way if you hold pressure on the wall console?

  • Will they work with the Aladdin 1020L-390? Thank you

  • Hi. Having problems with Safe T Beam for my 3022 opener (1.5 years old, s/n 170414100768GE). Green LED is steady, but Red transmitter is flashing Red (2 quick flashes). Also on main unit, red round LED is flashing. I've cleaned both sensors, wiring looks OK, and I've tried to re-align but it doesn't help. Is it time to buy new sensors?

    The two light blink pattern on the safe-t-beams indicates the safe-t-beams are not aligned, something is in the way, or that the safe-t-beams are defective. If you have checked the wiring, made sure they are aligned, and that nothing is blocking (cleaned etc.) then you may need to replace the safe-t-beams. If you would like further troubleshooting assistance you can contact our customer service at 1-800-354-3643. 

  • Will the sku 3722r work with a double garage model # 2028?

    Yes, these safe-t-beams will work with the model 2028.

  • I have started having problems with my Genie Intellicode Model ISL 950A Garage door opener. The door opens normally with either the remote or with the button on the hard-wired opener. However, when trying to close the door with either control, it will start down and then almost immediately open again. The only way to close the door is to hold down the button on the hard-wired control until the door closes all the way. Please advise on how to repair this.

    It sounds as if you may have an issue with the safety beams or wiring on your unit. Here are a few things to check. Both of the safety sensors should be lit and solid one red, and one green. If one or both of them are out it is an indication there is a wiring issue. You will want to first be sure the connection on the beams and head are secure. If only one light is off, please disconnect the beam that is not lit and connect it to the wiring on the side that is lit. If the beams light up replace the wiring to the beam on the non-lit side, if not replace the beams. If both are out you will want to short wire the beams directly to the head you will disconnect the beams and wire them to the terminals on the head that they are currently connected to using two short pieces of 18-20 gauge bell wire. If the beams lite up you will need to replace the wiring, if not replace the beams. If one of the beams is blinking please be sure that the lenses are clean, clear from obstructions, and properly aligned. Please count the blink pattern and let us know what the results are. Also, check to see if you can press and hold the wall console in to get the door to close. If you cannot, try removing the safety beam wires from the powerhead, then try constant pressure on the wall console to close the door. If you still cannot, once the safety beams are not wired, this may be a problem with the circuit board.  You can also call 1-800-354-3643 for further assistance.

  • I have the Genie SD and bought the Safe-T-Beam. My problem is when I connect the receiver first, I get a green light but as soon as a connect the transmitter, the light on the receiver (green) goes VERY dim and the transmitter has a red blinking light (3x). I've tried literally putting the two devices next to each other to avoid potential interference, signal weakness, or misalignment and the same behavior occurs. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated

    We would need a little more information on which model you are hooking these up to. This will help with troubleshooting. Please contact Genie customer service at 1-800-354-3643.

  • Is this part compatible with the genie professional model 2028? I do not have the part number on the old sensor because the dog chewed it into a million pieces. Thanks in advance

  • are these compatible with model PCG700ML

  • Are these sensors compatible with Wayne Dalton openers? I have almost no clearance between the garage foundation and the roller tracks. The Genie sensors will fit because their upright profile does not stick out past the roller tracks into the garage door opening. Any other sensors (including Wayne Dalton) stick a couple of inches into the door opening, where the sensors will surely get knocked off. It's because there is concrete right up to the roller tracks with no area wider than the tracks to make room for a sensor to mount.

    No, these will not work with Wayne Dalton garage door openers.

  • Will these work on an Overhead Door Model OCG 750?

  • Hello I have a intellercode model 5550/a and the safety receiver blinks red always opens but when you close it. It starts to close but goes right back to open. Can't find the original style safety sensor. May that be my problem. Thanks for your help Ben

    You can use the Safe-T-Beam diagnostic blinks to help find what the issue is. (found in the details on this page)- or you can contact our customer service at 1-800-354-3643 for troubleshooting assistance.

  • In the instructions, it says that the sensor unit pulls apart from the bracket, but I have tried and the unit does not separate. I have pulled fairly hard, but I don't want to break the unit. There doesn't seem to be a catch release nor does it mention one in the instructions.

    They do separate, but it does require quite a large amount of force.  We recommend using rubber gloves on both hands and pulling with ample force.  It does kind of feel like it will break but should not break when you are separating. 

  • Will these work on a 1/3 horsepower model pcg450?

    Yes, they will!

  • Should the green and red lights flash or just green on the sensors when new ones are installed.

    You should have one solid red light, and one solid green light on the Safe-t-Beams. If the red one is flashing that indicates a problem, obstruction, or that they are misaligned.

  • I have a Genie Bluemax CM 7500-S. There are two wires running from the opener to the source unit, and two wires running from the source to the receiver/sensor. The plug ends on the receiver are broken.

Can I install these replacement units and how do I rewire them?

  • Will this work with my gcg350 l garage door opener?

    Yes, these Safe-T-Beams will work with the GCG350.

  • i have a H6000A opener and the red safe T beam is blinking 4 times and the green one is not on. what could be the problem? i've cleaned the lenses and checked the wires.

    If the green one is not on, that will cause the other one with the red light to blink. On the green one, it could be either that the safe-t-beam is bad, or that the wire to the green one is broken or bad. The best way to check the wiring would be to take the red one off the wires it is attached to, and hook the green one up to those wires. If it lights up, then the wire to the green one is not working or broken, if it does not light up, then the safe-t-beams will need to be replaced.

  • Will the safe-t-beam work on model H6000A

    Yes, they will.

  • since the wiring has been massed up, should this kit be connected to terminal/connector 1 and 2? my genie pro has 4 connectors/terminals numbered as 1, 2, 3, and 4 thanks

    This will depend on which model garage door opener you have. Most of the older models, the Safe-T-Beams connected to terminals 3 and 4, newer models, to 1 and 2. You can view your owners manual here for more details, or you can contact our customer service at 1-800-354-3643 for assistance.

  • Just want to confirm these are compatible with model ACSR3G?

  • I have a couple of old g5000 1/2 hp screw drive (red case) openers. They work fine, but the wires got broken off right at one of the sensors. Too closed to repair. What do you suggest?
