Automation System Standard Features and Options

Each door automation system comes with a set of standard components, but can be easily customized to fit your particular application.

Standard Features

Wall Switch

This device is typically used to control the operation of the doors being automated. It is clean and simple in design, and installs into a Decora type wall plate. The switch and matching cover plate are available in white, almond, ivory and black.

Overhead Motion Sensor

Normally installed above the doors – it is designed to detect movement near the closing side of the doors. If a person (or pet) crosses into its line of sight when the doors are closing, it will stop forward motion and reverse door direction. Available in white or black.

Available Options

Touch Screen Control

Our touch screen allows you to perform the same operations as our standard wall switch, but provides additional modes of operation such as "request to exit," "close behind" and "open by panel." You can also accomplish programming and diagnostics from this single location. The mounting kit and cover plate is supplied in white, almond or black – to match the other electrical devices in your home.


Exterior Secure Keypad

Get easy, keyless, secure access from the outside of your home by adding a secure keypad. A weatherproof enclosure protects the device from dust and the elements.

Remote Control

Our wireless remote control allows you to operate your door from either inside or outside the house.

Battery Back-Up

Each of our automation systems comes equipped with a battery back-up so that the door will continue to operate normally even if the power goes out. The equipment is located inside the automation control panel.

Home Automation Integration

Every Doors In Motion system is designed to easily integrate with home automation systems like Crestron, Lutron and AMX. Our automation panel includes a simple connection point for your home automation installer. Typically, a CAT-5 wire is installed from their control panel to ours – and you are ready to go.
