The Garage Door Sensor operates off of 1 CR123A battery that has a 3-5-year lifespan. Your system is self-diagnosing and the Control Panel will alert you when any piece of equipment reports a low battery. The low battery error will also show on the home screen of both the Frontpoint App and Myfrontpoint.com website.
The steps to properly changing your Garage Door Sensor battery are listed below:
- To open the sensor, press in on the plastic above the protrusion on one of the two short ends to open the cover and reveal the battery.
- Pop the CR123A battery out of the compartment and replace it with the new batteries positive end facing towards the spring.
- To replace the sensor cover on the base, put the bottom of the sensor together first and fold it closed. You should hear the casing snap into place.
