Turn your Smarthphone into a Remote Control for Garage Door or Gate Opener

F2P Technologies 103350 Tap2Pass Wireless Smartphone Receiver Relay Switch

Utilizing the Bluetooth capability of the iOS or Android platform we created a keypad entry right on the screen. Simply tap in your 4 digit PIN and the door or gate is activated. Bluetooth technology was chosen as internet access is not required for accessing remote gates or doors, and as a safety feature, since the garage door or gate should always be in sight when activation occurs. The four digit PIN makes entry quick and easy as well as safe as it is an extra layer of security in the event the device is lost or stolen.

The Tap2Pass receiver can pair with as many as 7 Smartphones, and up to 24 vehicles (cars, motorcycles etc.) equipped with a Flash2Pass transmitter (sold separately). The receiver will work with virtually all garage door and gate openers manufactured since 1982 including AC, DC or solar powered (solar powered gate: power kit available separately), and newer models with ‘smart panels’. Installation is an easy do-it-yourself project and shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes using just a screwdriver. Full instructions are included with the Tap2Pass receiver.

  • Everyone in the family can have their own remote
  • No more trying to remember who had the remote last, or in which vehicle it was left in
  • No need to make a mad dash in the rain to enter a PIN in the keypad and wait while the door opens
  • iOS App available on iTunes or Android App available on Googe Play
  • Keypad entry right on the screen – 4 digit PIN makes entry quick and easy

Infrared Beam Detects Approaching Pet and Activates Sliding Door to Open

November 28, 2012 Leave a comment


The IR Pet Motion Sensor, 2 Pack is for those with an existing AutoSlide™ system who want to upgrade it to work with their pets as well. The set works in unison with an AutoSlide door to give your pets the convenience of being able to open a sliding door or screen on their own and thus not have to rely upon someone else to let them out. Included are 2 infrared (IR) motion sensors which are hardwired into an existing AutoSlide for power. Each motion sensor should be installed next to the sliding door at roughly chest height of the pet with one sensor inside and the other outside. Upon detection the IR sensor will open the door and allow your pet to come and go freely without relying upon you. Each AutoSlide system can be set to manual mode or have pet mode turned off for the times you do not want your pet to freely come and go as they like.

  • IR pet motion sensors trigger sliding door to open for pet
  • Program door to only open enough to suit the size of your pet
  • Pet receives easy access in and out of home without assistance
  • Add-on accessories for existing AutoSlide systems

Automate a Sliding Door for Added Daily Home Convenience

SlideRight AS08/CBW AutoSlide Clicker Bundle, White

  • Open sliding door with push of a button
  • Works with existing sliding door
  • Provides easy access for elderly and disabled
  • Low energy consumption with quiet operation
  • DIY installation

Convenience and sliding doors are 2 things that don’t really go hand-in-hand even though they should. When manually controlling a sliding door a variety of issues can arise such as their rollers getting off track making them hard to open and shut, they get left open when the air condition is on, they aren’t accommodating when you’re hands are full and much, much more. The inconvenience of sliding doors, however, is now a problem of the past as the AutoSlide Clicker Bundle from SlideRight is the simple, DIY solution for automating sliding patio, screen or internal doors. The Clicker Bundle is similar to the Starter Bundle but features 2 wireless keyfob remote controls. Each remote control has 4 different sliding door operation modes which are auto, open, standby and pet. Pet mode allows for the AutoSlide systems to be programmed to only open to a specified width allowing your pet quick access in or out of the home without the sliding door having to fully open each time.

The AutoSlide is designed to fit most existing or new manual internal sliding doors to provide easy access for all. How easy? With the SlideRight installed, sliding doors can be opened and closed with the push of a wall mounted button as the user approaches the door. The mounted switch is wireless allowing for it to be conveniently placed up to 30 feet away or high enough off the ground to prevent young children from reaching it. A pull assist feature is also integrated into each system that will trigger a full auto-open with a gentle pull of the sliding door handle. An automated sliding door is especially convenient for disabled or elderly people who may struggle to open and then close a heavy sliding door. A 5 star energy rated low voltage plug-in power pack operates the AutoSlide and it will even help save on air conditioning costs by ensuring that your sliding door is not left open. It can even be used on sliding screen doors to more effectively keep flies and insects out of your home as family and friends are frequently coming and going. The AutoSlide Clicker Bundle is a DIY installation that is designed to be installed in roughly an hour with step-by-step instructions included. This product is designed specifically for residential applications and is not recommended for use with commercial or industrial applications.

IR Motion Sensors (sold separately) can be added to this system for hands-free operation by people or pets. This product is also available in black (sold separately). Read more
