People might need help opening and closing doors and gates for a variety of reasons, including decreased strength or balance.
What kinds of door openers are there?
Automatic Door Openers
Automatic doors might be a good fit for you if it is hard to open a door by yourself. You might have to install a new door or you might be able to fix (retrofit) an old door.
Low-Energy Door Openers
These doors can be opened manually or with a “knowing act” using something like a button, push plate, or remote control.
Full Energy Door Opener
These doors are activated via motion sensors when approached.
Pneumatic Residential Door Opener
Pneumatic residential door openers utilize the power of air under pressure to automatically open the door. You can use a handheld remote or wall mounted buttons, infrared devices or many other activating devices.
A smart lock is a WiFi or Bluetooth-enabled smart home device. It lets users lock and unlock doors with the tap of a finger or a voice command. Smart locks also allow remote access, so you can unlock a door to let someone in while you are not home. You should evaluate a smart lock’s features to choose the best one for your needs.
Smart Gate Opener
Smart gate openers allow you to control your gate from anywhere using an app.
T-Pull Door Closer
Assistive device for people using wheelchairs, walkers, or any other mobility aids.
Hands Free Door Opener/Foot Operated Door Opener
