Question:

How do you sequence the outside door operator with the inside door operator?

 

Answer:

This will depend on your door operator’s manufacturer and the actuators used. Typically we recommend wireless actuators and receivers, but most door operator’s and actuators can be done. The receivers have a delay that is adjustable which allows the outside actuator to immediately activate the outside operator and activate the inside operator 10 seconds later. It can work the same in reverse too by allowing the inside actuator to immediately activate the inside operator and activate the inside operator 10 seconds later.

When installing this type of system, don’t forget to have an actuator installed between the two operators!
