Each Open Sesame door system comes standard with a remote control that can be either handheld or easily mounted on a wheelchair. This high-powered remote device can activate the door system from anywhere in the home and can be activated with fingers, palm, the side of the hand and more.

We also offer remote controls that can be connected to specialty switches and wheelchair controls. The Open Sesame 133 door system can be customized with a wide range of activation devices.

Standard Transmitter

Standard one-button remote included or other remote options are also available.

Proximity Sensor

The sensor will activate the door when a smart tag is within the area of detection with no hand use required. The area of detection has three distance settings: 3 ft, 6 ft, 9ft. One reader will work from both sides of the wall. It comes with two proximity tags. Available in white and black.

Keyless Entry

This wireless keypad, which is mounted outside of the door, eliminates dependence on keys for care providers or visiting family members by allowing entry with a code.

Spec Switch

This is a sensitive switch for people with very limited hand use.

Low Voltage Wiring

Most installations take less than 2 hours – far less time and labor than most other door openers. Plus there’s no need to hire an electrician, since the Open Sesame door opener is a safe low voltage device. Just plug in the 24 volt AC adapter to the nearest (within 30 ft) wall outlet, plug in the door opener to the small wall mounted junction box, and you’re set.

Electric Strike

The Open Sesame system incorporates the use of a door release mechanism installed in the door frame. Similar to getting “buzzed in” an apartment building, when activated, the electric strike releases the door latch and allows the electric operator to open the door.

Model 133 Product Specs

Automatic door operator shall be electromechanical, and provide for both powered opening and powered closing of a door. The door opener shall provide no influence upon the door except when it is actively involved with powered opening, holding open, or closing, thus allowing unencumbered manual operation.
The unit shall contain an internal battery power supply to provide powered operation in the event of external power failure. The unit shall be powered by 24 vac, external to the device under provisions of low voltage wiring and is supplied with a 20 VA transformer requiring 115 vac 60 Hz service.

The operator shall be mounted according to drawings and instructions provided with each unit. The unit shall be capable of mounting on either door or lintel and shall provide door opening angles up to 120 degrees.

The unit shall possess an adjustable hold-open feature allowing the door between 5 and 30 seconds for passage. The unit shall stop when encountering an obstruction during an operating cycle at which time it ceases to provide an influence on the door.

Electro-mechanical. Power open, power close. Automatic clutch disengagement at all times when not activated, allowing unimpeded manual operation.

Automatic open-hold-close cycle (5 to 30 seconds) activated by a signal from internal radio receiver or the momentary closure of electrical contacts provided by wires to unit.

Automatic cycle may be interrupted by a signal received within the cycle bringing the operator into a disengaged state. Door may be closed remotely if door is found left open in a nonactive state upon receipt of a signal.

Optional Mode (Auto-Close setting) – causes door to close automatically after a delay upon manual opening. Can be brought into activation in one of three ways:

  1. Provision of electrical wires to unit to provide a discontinuity between internal contacts.
