Garage door motors and automation
The motor design is split in 2 sections (See image below). Firstly there is the 24V motor part moving up and down the shaft which is in turn connected to the door. It has a steel cord with a red knob that is pulled gently to engage and disengage the motor. This can be done at any point of the shaft.
