Ask a Question
  • What is the length of the AC Cord?

    For the model Wall Mount Smart Garage Door Opener- Direct Drive Side Mount with Wireless Wall Console, Battery Backup, and Wi-Fi the power cord is 6 feet long with roughly 5.5 feet available from the housing to the end of the cord.  We do have an approved extension cord available at local Genie Professional dealers if needed.

  • What Genie wall panels are compatible with Model 6172H-B opener? Is it possible to simultaneously have wired and wireless panels to control 1 unit?

    Yes you can have a wired and a wireless wall consoles both to the Wall Mount Smart Garage Door Opener- Direct Drive Side Mount with Wireless Wall Console, Battery Backup, and Wi-Fi.  There is a limit of one wired lit wall console.  The wired wall console is 39165R the wireless wall console is already included with this unit.

  • Does the light have motion detection?

    No, the Wall Mount Smart Garage Door Opener- Direct Drive Side Mount with Wireless Wall Console, Battery Backup, and Wi-Fi light does not have motion detection.  However, it does come on when the unit is operated and will stay on for 5 minutes afterward, then turn off.  There is also an independent light control button on the wall console that can be used for constant light until the button is pressed again to turn off.

  • will this work with a zero track door?

    By zero track door so you mean the door is a one piece flip out style door?  Or do you mean you have zero clearance and this is a low clearance door?

    If you have a one piece door, this model is not compatible with that type of door.  We would instead recommend the models 3042,4042, 3022, 4062, or 4063 they are all compatible with one piece doors.  They require 2 inches above the highest point of travel of the door.

    If you have a low clearance door it depends on how the springs are wound.  If the torsion spring is directly above the door and the cables from the spring come off the rollers on the door side of the roller, this unit would be compatible.  If the door has reverse wound springs, meaning that the cables come off the rollers on the opposite side of the door, this unit is not compatible with that type of installation.  This unit is also not compatible with springs that are mounted in a location other than directly above the garage door opening (springs mounted at the ends of the door tracks are not compatible).  

    If you have another situation please let us know and we would be happy to look into.  Pictures would be helpful if this does not answer your question.

  • Is their a learn button in the wall unit

    The Wall mount unit has a program/set button (PRG/SET) under the flip cover on the front of the motor box.  This is used for programming the wireless devices.  To program remotes, press and hold the PRG/SET button until a blue light is observed, release, a purple light will start blinking.  While the purple light is blinking back up a few feet with the remote and press the desired button 4-5 times until the unit runs.  The remote is then programmed.  If you need additional help with another item please let us know.
