Essential Info

Have you left for work in the morning only to realize that you accidentally left the garage door open? Restore your peace of mind with the Xceltronix Garage Door Autocloser, an automatic garage attendant that closes your garage door when inadvertently left open. You select between 2, 5, 10, 15 or 20 minute time frames in which the Autocloser automatically shuts the garage if left open for that amount of time. A disable button is also available, knowing that there are times in which users may want to leave their garage open for an extended period of time. The Autocloser incorporates the latest micro-controller technology, infrared light sensors and advanced software algorithms to deliver a safe and reliable product. It installs onto most garage door openers in a matter of minutes and only basic hand tools are needed for proper installation. The unit is AC powered (adapter included).

    Important Note: The Autocloser is recommended for use with garage door openers that comply with the latest government safety requirements (i.e. those with automatic reversing mechanisms and electronic photo eye sensors that detect obstructions). If your garage door does not have these government-mandated safety features, replace or update your garage door opener before installing the Autocloser automatic garage attendant.

    The Autocloser monitors the garage door's position and the disable button. When it senses that the garage door has been open for a set period of time (user selectable: 2, 5, 10, 15 and 20 minutes)— and the disable button has not been activated — the garage door will close. The automatic closer does this by connecting to the terminals on the garage door opener wall button, thus simulating the press of a button.

    The installation process for the Xceltronix Autocloser is a simple process that takes approximately 20 minutes. The installation manual provides a step-by-step procedure, complete with illustrations. Only commonly available basic hand tools are needed for proper installation (drill, screwdriver, adjustable wrench and a wire cutter/stripper).

    Excellent service! convenient installing!
    CHRISTOPHER -- washington, DC   6/21/2014
    Easy installation. Only issue was the system was missing two set screws for the electrical contacts. Fortunately I had a couple spares.
    ANDREW -- edmonton, AB   4/19/2014
    Piece of junk. I'm a handyman and installation was no problem, but it doesn't work. Fiddled around with it for hours, but it won't close garage door. The operation manual is way too vague, so is trouble shooting guide. Want to return it to 'Smarthome' Store but its already opened and just past 30 day return policy.
    JOHN -- elk grove, CA   4/11/2014
    Couldn't get it to work after hooking it up. Spent 4-5 hrs trying and finally gave up and sent it back
    CLIFF -- east hanover, NJ   2/14/2014
    Exactly as described. Works great
    Ken -- wilsonville, OR.   10/19/2013
    Probably a good idea to read the directions before installing this unit, because it does install pretty easily once you have a little understanding of how it works. I attached the Disable Button on the bottom of the opener, since that location is more convenient than next to the button at the house entry door, plus it made installation that much easier by not having to run wires across the ceiling and down to the button. I did open up the casing of the opener first to make sure my drilling into it and screwing the buttons attachment screws wouldn't interfere at all with the circuitry or mechanisms inside the opener, but there was plenty of room. My only complaint is that the closer will actually end up not closing the garage door if there's any sort of obstruction in the path of the garage door either keeping the door from closing all the way down, like a block of wood 1 or more higher, or if something's blocking the optical sensor. I would think the circuitry in the closer could be improved to maybe close the door as much as it can, and keep it that far closed, instead of totally re-opening and remaining that way until you or someone removes the obstruction.
    DANIEL -- les cedres, QC   9/17/2013
    Easy to install, simple to use and seems to be working as expected. The velcro tape to hold the unit in place is holding up just fine. The beeping is a bit loud, it would be nice if it could be adjusted.
    LAWRENCE -- cincinnati, OH   7/22/2013
    Our garage which is too small to actually park a vehicle is in the back of the house. We park on the driveway at the back of the house and enter thru the garage. It has happened on numerous occasions where we forgot to close the garage door. So I found the Autocloser on line, ordered and installed it on the garagedoor. It works like a charm and closes the door automatically after 5 min. No more forgetting to close the door. The installation was easy but I had to install it differently than the instructions. Instead of mounting the Autocloser under the Garage door opener I had to attach it to the side as the J brace was to short to attach the reflector as instructed. Just be aware you may have to change the install depending on your situation. I looked at other closers and found that this was the easiest to install. The only thing is the beeping when it goes to close the door, it is loud and goes on for a while. You can disable the closer if the need arises.
    BEN -- anchorage, AK   6/20/2013
    This items works exactly as expected! The garage door would open at random times, despite resetting the security code and purchasing new remotes. I installed the automatic closer and the problem is solved. There is only one thing I would change: it beeps for a very long time during the auto-close process. It would be nice to shorten the period or turn it off as an option. Other than that, I am now relieved that the door can't be left open accidentally or open randomly and stay open long enough for something bad to happen.
    ROBERT -- broomfield, CO   1/12/2013
    Quality product at a reasonable price. And best of all, it works like a charm!
    JANET -- winter garden, FL   11/2/2012
    Great product. Works as intended and removes the worry about leaving the garage door open. Highly recommended.
    ALVIN -- winnipeg, MB   10/18/2012
    Easy to install and works like a charm.
    JULIA -- saratoga, CA   9/26/2012
    I love it. I love it so much that I inadvertenly ordered two I only have one garage. I have not opened the second package. What is the best way to return it to you? Julie Stephenson
    ROBERT -- toronto, ON   8/20/2012
    works well and was reasonably easy to install
    MICHAEL -- peoria, IL   7/30/2012
    Works as described. U disagee with other reviewers who think the beeping alarm is too loud. I've been able to hear it while i was in my house or a bit away from the garage, giving time to decide whether I wanted it to close automatically or manually. As an option it would be good to control the volume but in no way does it take away from this product. Also, the velcro has not been a problem for me. I've had it over a month and it has given me piece of mind on if my garage door is closed. I truly recommend this product.
    MIKE -- dallas, TX   7/5/2012
    have not installed it yet
    manvijo -- los altos, California   5/15/2012
    My children kept leaving the garage door open I never did of course : and as we live on corner it was a security risk. This product solved the problem well, was easy to install and gives me peace of mind. I would recommend this and will buy more as we are about to move. The price was right for a non-internet controllable device, in fact it is pretty low-tech.
    Redskin Fan -- Bowie   5/7/2012
    We've had one for ten years and the o0ther for 8 years. Very Satisfied. The 10 year old unit is starting to wear out, but has been extremely reliable!
    JOSEPH -- north hollywood, CA   1/5/2012
    Works perfectly and setup was very easy. Would buy again
    BARRY -- eugene, OR   1/1/2012
    Relatively easy to install. Works as described. 4 issues to consider: 1. As pointed out by others, alarm is quite loud. I'm concerned about disturbing my neighbors. A volume control with some minimum db for safety would be great. 2. It may not be straightforward to mount the reflector, depending upon the position of the metal track relative to the opening mechanism. 3. The installation instructions are not completely up to date. For example, my AC adaptor did not have a screw hole to attach to the outlet. 4. Also pointed out by others, mounting the device on the bottom of the garage door opener with velcro is a tad precarious. I wrapped wire around the two to reinforce the installation, which works OK but is not that attractive.
