What might be causing my garage door to beep?

There are a few potential reasons why your garage door opener is beeping. Figuring out the cause will help you decide what to do next. 

Opener Timer is Set

Did you know that if your garage door beeps, it could mean that the timer is set? Garage doors today come with a variety of features, and one such feature includes timers. These timers emit an audible warning signal to let homeowners know their garage door will close soon when activated. The triggers for this alarm are usually accompanied by lights flashing as well!

Opener Backup Battery Is Operating

One helpful feature of most garage door openers is a battery backup; these are great when the power goes out. When your garage door opener is in the process of opening or closing your garage, it beeps to warn you that it’s operating on battery backup power. The beeping means there may be a power issue, and you should contact the company for service.

Low Battery

A beeping sound from a garage door opener may indicate that the battery is low. If this is the case, examine the actual opener unit and check to see if it has an LED light that displays battery status. A red light means that you need to replace your existing battery.
