Remotes Batteries

This may seem like a no-brainer but a lot of these issues can be resolved just by checking the batteries. Some homeowners forget this, like any other remote, it needs to be regularly changed. Most people assume that these devices do not need to be maintained but when you start to have issues with your remote, you should always first check the batteries.

Photo Eyes

Now, Photo eyes take the issue to another level. If you have checked your remote batteries and have also ruled out your circuit board, it is time to check your photo eyes. How you can determine this is by checking your LED lights. if there is no LED light on or even flashing what so ever, then your issue lies with the photo eyes.
