MOUNT HOPE, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Genie Company announces the release of its newest garage door opener accessory, the wireless wall console.
Featuring an attractive design highlighted by an optional pulsing blue back-light, the wall console’s obvious advantage is being 100% completely wireless. No wiring means less installation time and allows more flexibility for placement within the garage.
In addition, there are many other features to also consider. For those who have ever experienced pressing the wall button on their existing opener only to hurry to exit the garage under a closing door, this wall console helps solve the issue with a jogger (or delay) button. Press it once to gain 10 seconds before the door begins to move; press it up to three times for a maximum 30-second delay, giving plenty of time to calmly and safely exit the garage before door movement begins. And no matter what amount of time delay is chosen, the work light will flash for 4-5 seconds prior to garage door movement for ample notice.
Jaclyn Sapp, Accessory Product Manager, said, “We planned for this wireless wall console to offer distinct advantages to installers and homeowners alike. Whether it’s the wireless concept for quicker installation, the attractive casing, or optional back-lighting combined with convenient and advance safety notifications – our goal has been to ensure everyone benefits from its well thought out and tested design.”
Additional features include a work light button to turn the opener light on at any time and as noted, a blue backlight with the option to not use the light for maximum battery life. The same light will turn red to indicate low battery status.
The Genie wireless wall console fits nicely over a standard junction box should a homeowner with an existing wall console wish to cover up the imprint of the old one and operates on (2) AAA batteries (included in package). It is compatible with most Genie Intellicode® openers manufactured since 2013 with a few exceptions.
