When the door opener is triggered by the remote controls the door will go through an open-pause-close cycle.
The system's operator will close automatically against the manual opening of the door, like any standard door closer.
For installation, any existing door closer must be removed or disabled.

The Public of Light Commercial Bundle does not include an electric strike plate.
The plates are available here, Open Sesame System Door Opener Accessories.
A wireless and keyless entry pad is also available on our Open Sesame Accessories page
The pad's easy to change 4- digit combination code provides secure entry without needing a key.
Used to open and close the door.
NOTE: For outward opening door applications with a lintel mount configuration where the door is recessed into the frame farther than the standard length arm can reach. 4 inch and 7 inches longer arm rods are available.

The Bundle's Model 233 door operator can also be used with a pedestrian gate.
With only a few slight modifications of the arm's geometry and mounting position.
There are many ways to mount a gate operation, above as an example. But if you are planning using one of our units for a gate application, consultation with one of our teammates is recommended. Unfortunately, the Open Sesame door operator is not waterproof, a rain shield or roof needs to be constructed to shield the device from the rain (example to the left). The Commercial Door Opener Bundle's Model 233 operator acts like a return spring when the gate is manually opened.
So it keeps the gate in the closed position. When it is activated via remote control, the door will open, pause for entry or exit, then close after a delay, as all our door operators. It can be used in this manner without a latch on the gate. If a latch is needed, then a standard door latch and handle can also be installed on the gate, and an electric strike plate can be mounted in the wall or fence to automatically release the gate latch when the door operator is activated (just like the standard residential package).
The usual traffic load limits apply for the Model 233 door operator since the motor is run every time the gate is opened, whether manually or via remote control. Usually, we limit it to ~300 openings per day.
1) The Open Sesame Model 233 is a light duty door operator, meaning that it is not suitable for an environment with continuous traffic.
If the operator is chosen to be used in a high usage application it can be rebuilt if necessary, the typical charge for this is under $350.
The unit runs on an internal battery that is being constantly trickle charged.
For high traffic applications, consult with us regarding an external power supply that reduces dependence on the internal battery
2) The Open Sesame Model 233 is provided with a bumper stop on the arm to limit the maximum travel of the door to slightly more than 90 degrees.
3) The Open Sesame Model 233 when held open by wind or obstructions will attempt to close for 40 seconds and then stop trying to bring the door closed.
The door operation is reset by manually closing the door. This turn off mode protects the motor and drive circuitry from overheating.
4) The current Model 233 operator comes with an adjustable clutch, which can easily be adjusted to suit the needs of the application.
Occasionally, there can be issues due to wind load (for an outward opening door), pressure differential, or excessive opening/closing resistance due to the threshold and/or weatherstripping.
In these cases, the clutch can be adjusted to provide greater opening/closing and holding force.
