Product Description
Zap residential Jackshaft operators are the most impressive on the market. If you are looking for a new residential jackshaft operator the Zap DC residential garage door operator is your answer. The Zap features SafetySense technology, which is one of the industryís most advanced obstruction detection systems available. This technology allows the Zap to detect an obstruction on any part of the door, whether itís opening or closing. This means a safe garage door operator not only for you, but for your door and its surroundings.

The Zap Butler is a heavy duty residential model operator with a 3/4HP motor. Itís capable of running sectional overhead garage doors up to 280 square feet in size, 1280 lbs. in balanced weight, with track configurations such as low headroom, standard lift, high lift, and full vertical lift. Like all the Zap model operators, the motor assembly only contains the motor, two pulleys and one belt, which means no chains or sprockets making all that unnecessary noise in your garage or shop.

The residential model Butler only requires 4 3/4Ē of side clearance and 2 3/4Ē above the center of your spring shaft, so limited space is not an issue. This model is supplied with two four button transmitters (remotes), safety photo cells/beams, a 6 foot power cord, and preinstalled motor cover. The Butler also offers a built in auto close timer and LED light to provide light at the door area. An optional wireless keypad is available.

Installation of the Butler is as simple as it gets. It only requires one person with a ladder to install the motor assembly on the spring shaft. Nothing mounts to the ceiling, door jamb, or header area, so your garage or shop stay sleek looking. The Zap control box is an even quicker installation. Just four screws to fasten it to the wall near the door, and power it up by plugging it into a nearby outlet in your garage or shop. Now itís just a matter of running the door open and close two times with the Butler and it will set itís fully open and closed positions for you. You just stand back and watch!

We are very impressed with the quality and capabilities of the Zap Butler DC residential model operator and know you will be too.

This state of the art device easily connects to the Wi-Fi network in your home and your Zap Butler operator. It allows you to not only operate your door from anywhere in the world with multiple users, but also allows you to receive alerts such as the door being left open.

QUESTION: I installed one of your ZAP openers 8825-R4 followed the directions and I can't get it to go up or down. Went through the calibration sequence with no success ?? by None N 2/24/2016
ANSWER: I have never got my zap to work other than getting it to raise in calibration mode nothing else was told by overhead door service man that they stopped selling zap because of various issues so like he told me cant really help you but good luck by Gary B a
ANSWER: I had to calibrate a few times the directions are kinda hard to follow. Make sure u have enough tension on torsion springs. by Tim J a
ANSWER: Sounds like you may not have belt tensioner cable adjusted tight enough. It has to be tight with the handle straight out at the 3 or 9 O'clock position of the handle. by robert k a
ANSWER: hmm; had no problem with the 3 I just installed;I assume you have the "safety" lights hooked up?I don't have any kids, so I just taped them together on one of the flat metal supports; years ago, they did not have these.<br />Make sure the wires are put into the correct terminals inside the control box--please check. <br />Does anything at all happen when you try the "DOOR CALIBRATION"? Does the motor even try to turn the steel hollow bar?<br />I suggest 3X for calibrating the up-down sequence as 2 was not enough. I havce even just added 2 more remotesnow have 8 and they were very easy to get synchronizedthe "LEARN" button is very small and not easily visible; once you have found it, thing go quickly<br />Maybe ask a friend to take a look at it since I or a ZAP technician are not available by Bruce M a
QUESTION: How high a door will this operate? by None N 1/19/2016
ANSWER: Will work on a 10 foot door tall by Robert W a
ANSWER: Not sure about the height BUT make sure you measure how much space you have extra on each side of the rod it attaches to on the garage door. Our are too short on both sides of both doors. In order to install and use this we now need to have the entire rod replaced or purchase another opener. by Robin V a
QUESTION: does the ZAP 8825-R4 come with/operate a light? by Allan D 12/19/2015
ANSWER: Yes it has a small multi LED light but it shines horizontal across the top of the door. Mine shines right into the door tracks and does a poor job of any lighting. by Victor E a
ANSWER: NO by Daniel R a
ANSWER: A small LED light emits from the side of the ZAP garage door opener. Not very bright at all for lighting up your garage. Consider a separate motion light system for your garage to turn on and off lights automatically. by Brian D a
ANSWER: Yes; a small one on the control unit itself plus the green one on the up/down control button by Bruce M a
