However to avoid such possibilities, you can install video intercom systems to communicate with any person before opening the door.

The most common type of garage door sensor is the ‘infrared beam detector’. Two pieces of sensors have to be installed on both sides of the gate. The placement of the sensors should be done in such a way that if any moving object appears in front of it, then the light beam gets broken. One drawback of this type of sensor is that its alignment changes every time, requiring frequent readjustments.
Some battery operated sensors are there which close automatically if the door or gate is left open for a long time. In case of motorized openers during cold climate or at cold places, they don’t to stiffen and malfunction. In such a case, these battery operated openers are of great use.
There is also another type of sensor called pressure sensor. The pressure sensor prevents the gate from closing if and when an object touches the gate. Whereas the infrared beam detector prevents the door from closing if and when the infrared beam is obstructed.(image)
Another type of sensor is there which is not related to opening or closing the gate for cars, but for the amount of carbon monoxide. It is called ‘carbon monoxide sensor’. When the amount of carbon monoxide increases beyond the required level, the gate automatically opens by the help of the sensor and allows fresh air to enter.

TIPS TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SOLAR PANELS

Posted: February 6th, 2014 | Author: admin | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »
There was an experiment in the year 1839 on solar energy. It was found that enough power could be produced to light up an entire Christmas light. But whether it is true in real life today is a big question. In order to make a house completely solar powered, the amount of solar panels to be used would be very large.

In order to have a house completely powered by solar energy, we have pay particular attention to solar panels. While going to buy a solar panel, what are the points we should consider, let’s have a brief idea.

The price of the panel is the first thing to consider. Then the durability of the panels, efficiency of the panels and the type of solar electric panels used come next.

Experience also plays a big factor in choosing the right kind of solar panels. Start a survey among your kith and kin that already use solar panels. Ask your friends, relatives, neighbors and friends about it.

Smaller photo voltaic cells electrically connected constitute the solar panel. The solar cells have a glass covering over them which protects the cells from external elements besides allowing sun rays to pass through them.

Solar panels produce DC current like that in a battery. At least 12 volts of power can be used at the time of sun light continuously. Solar cells are generally connected in series. So, if you connect solar panels in parallel, then you can get a higher current output. The number of solar panels is directly proportional to the amount of electricity produced.

Place the solar panels on roof tops or any other open space where maximum sunlight falls. The panels should have the scope of absorbing maximum solar energy. Solar panels come in various sizes. Choose the size which fits your home demands.

Portable devices can be recharged by using solar panels. The solar electric system in your house is made up of many solar panels arranged in a particular fashion. The amount of electricity produced in your house is determined by this configuration.
For a 12V system, if you need to replace 100A/h of charge to your batteries each day, and you have 8 sunlight hours in each day you will need…

100AH x 12V = 1200WH

1200WH / 8H = 150W of solar panels.

Solar electric panels of 150 W will be enough for a standard house or cottage practically. So to have sufficient power, you have to consider extra solar panels say 180 W. In this way you will never fall short of power.

Now, you must have understood what to look for in a solar panel and make the right choice. Why not buy some solar panels from Wholesale Gate Openers as per your need?
