MOUNT HOPE, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Genie Company announces the addition of Battery Backup (BBU) capability to its popular 2028 and 2128 garage door opener series. For the 2128 in particular, the addition of battery backup to its integrated Aladdin Connect®, Genie’s award-winning Wi-Fi smart connected system, now makes it an all-around great choice for homeowners who want the latest in garage door opener technology & features.
By adding these units to its existing line of BBU capable openers, Genie offers the most complete line of models to fulfill the growing demand for this feature.
The battery backup add-on to these additional models was in response to recent legal changes in California which mandate that all garage door openers be equipped with a BBU at time of installation. These new models are in addition to Genie’s existing units which were already equipped with battery backup capability to meet the SB-969 California mandate.
The same great features of their related models come standard on each opener, including a powerful 24V motor which lifts doors up to 500 lbs. and 8 feet in height at a rate of up to 7”/second.
“Changes in local, state and federal requirements such as California Senate Bill 969, can cause our dealers concern,” said Josh Funk, Genie residential product manager. “We always want to be sure we do our part to keep our product line up to speed with changing laws. With these new openers, Genie now offers BBU capability throughout its entire opener line-up, giving plenty of options for choosing the right one for the job.”
