LED bulb for garage door opener



Shatter and vibration resistant bulb limits interference with many opener remotes

With more and more people moving away from incandescent light bulbs due to their energy inefficiency, LED light bulbs are becoming increasingly popular in homes. The garage is no exception. Overhead Door, the inventor of the upward-lifting garage door and the first electric garage door opener, is shedding new light on an old product with its innovative new LED light bulb, designed specifically with garage door openers in mind.

Many common LED light bulbs interfere with garage door openers by limiting the range of the opener’s remote control. Overhead Door’s new LED light bulb significantly reduces or eliminates this interference with its unique design, which shields the transmission of its energy waves from the radio frequency that goes between the remote and opener. As a result, Overhead Door’s LED bulb is radio frequency friendly, allowing homeowners to open their garage door without experiencing reduced remote range issues.

Overhead Door’s LED light bulb is also specifically designed and manufactured to handle the tough conditions automatic garage door operation often creates. It is shatter and vibration resistant and is able to withstand 5G of shaking force, which is far more than the normal vibration from standard garage door and opener combinations.

In addition, a cold or damp garage can weaken the performance and lifespan of common LED light bulbs. However, Overhead Door’s LED light bulb is made to withstand up to -30°C (-22°F) and is damp location rated as well.

Finally, Overhead Door’s LED light bulb provides optimal lighting at a low annual cost. Though it has 800 lumens of brightness, which is equivalent to a 60 watt incandescent bulb, Overhead Door’s LED light bulb only uses 10 watts of power. Depending on local utility rates, that means the annual cost can be as little as $1.07 per year with a lifespan of about 25,000 hours.
