Safety beams are sold in pairs. One photo eye beam is installed on one side of the garage door, and the other is installed on the other side, with exact heights from the bottom of the door specified in the user manual. The beams work together to detect objects, people or animals in the path of a descending garage door. If something is detected, the door stops closing and reverses course.

Brackets, wires and sensors arrive already connected on the Guardian/Napoleon Lynx Proline garage door opener photo eyes safety beams with a maximum 60-foot range.
