“Plug And Play” Garage Door Opener
The Ryobi GD200 garage door opener comes with a powerful 2 hp. motor that’s designed to be 20 percent quieter than other garage door openers and opens and closes doors 20 percent faster, says the company. Modules available for the system include a fan, 30-ft. retractable cord reel, bluetooth wireless speaker, and laser park assist module. An app can be downloaded to make personalized settings for each module and to remotely open and close the door.
The fan comes with an adjustable speed setting and a dual-pivot point that lets you direct the air in any direction. The retractable cord reel has 3 outlets. The bluetooth speaker allows you to stream full audio from your smart phone up to 30 ft. away. It also comes with an integrated microphone that allows making hands-free phone calls. The laser park assist module has a pair of ultra-bright lasers that activate whenever your garage door opens, helping to guide you and make sure you park the right distance from the garage wall.
The GD200 comes with a multi-functional wall control, wireless keypad, two remotes, safety sensor and a motion-controlled overhead LED light. It’s compatible with Homelink and is Wi-Fi connectable. A lithium-ion backup battery that can make more than 100 door openings is available for use during power outages.
The GD200 is sold at Home Depot and through the company’s website.
Home Depot sells the opener for $248; the retractable cord reel for $64; the fan for $54; the laser park assist for $44; and the bluetooth speaker for $54.
