Is Your Garage Door Opener Beeping?

If you have a premium garage door opener installed in your garage; it’ll have a battery backup and the capability to connect with Wi-Fi. The purpose of this is to alert you by making a beeping sound. The beep is to inform you that a step you are performing is complete or an issue with the device. The number of beeps depends on the type of task you perform on the garage door and the type of garage you have installed.

The garage door opener is beeping every 2 seconds.

  • If you hear a beep every two minutes, this indicates that the unit has lost power and has shifted to backup battery power. The battery LED will display a solid orange color.
  • You need to ensure the power at home is quickly restored. Once the power is back up, and if the orange light is still lit, then test the electrical outlet where the unit is connected. You can plug in another device in the same outlet to check if there is power coming into the outlet. If there is something wrong with the outlet, you will have to call in an electrician to see it.

The garage door opener is beeping every 30 seconds.

  • If there is an orange light flashing, this is an indicator that the battery is low.
  • Check the electrical outlet by plugging in a different device. If the power is up, and the LED has not changed from orange to green, you will have to replace the batteries.
  • But if the LED displays a solid red color, this indicates that the battery is entirely out of power and you cannot recharge it. Hence you will have to replace the batter.

Keep a note that you can stop the beeping until you have replaced the battery. You can unplug the unit from the electrical outlet and remove the battery. Once the battery is out, you can plug the unit back into the electrical outlet, and you will notice that the beeping will stop.
