Operation: Manual or Power
Open Sesame door systems offer unique conveniences in operation. A door can be controlled with a remote control door-opening device or operated manually. Unlike some other door opening devices the Open Sesame is completely smooth in operation and feel. There is no clicking, friction and/or resistance when opening and closing the door. The door moves freely and can be left open or ajar for pets, repeated passage or for ventilation.
Most installations take less than 2 hours and can be done by anyone with general handyman skills. Open Sesame will work with most doors – the door must be neutral in its movement – aligned and hung properly, and not warped. Additionally, there must be no rubbing or binding of the door in the frame when closing.
The Open Sesame door opener is a safe low voltage device. You only need to plug in the 24 volt AC adapter to the nearest (within 30 ft) wall outlet, plug in the door opener to the small wall mounted junction box.
The Open Sesame system incorporates the use of a door release mechanism installed in the door frame. This type of mechanism, called an “electric strike plate”, is commonly used in apartment buildings where an intercom system is present, and allows the continued use of all existing keys. There are some exceptions where non-locking door handles are present and existing hardware may need to be replaced.
In the event of a power outage the Open Sesame door operating system will operate at full power. It has an internal 12vdc lead acid battery that will run the unit for a day under loss of power. The battery is kept constantly charged while the power is on.
