  • Examples of such switches include doorbell switches, typical key switches, and other aftermarket accessories
  • If your garage door opener has a wired gray wall console with black buttons, you have an opener with Series III electronics

Ask a Question
  • Do you make one of these for Series 2 garage openers?

    Series II garage door openers do not require a dry contact switch, they are already dry contact compatible and ready.

  • If you have two garage door openers in your garage, do you need two of these Dry Contact Adapter Switches? Do you need one for each garage door opener?

    Yes, if you need the adapter for something, you would need one for each.
