I have a Genie-Pro CM 6800, garage door opener. I would like however,
to alter it to have the garage lights come on when the safety sensors

I has the feature when you initially open and close. After a few
minutes when left open the light goes out. I would like to have it
come on when the sensor is tripped. This is helpful for me in the

The cheapy Craftsman I installed works whenever the door is open as any

engineering department at geni to include that in any opener they sell or
for that matter any manufacturer.
Sorry for the delayed response. I think the motion detector on the
garage lights will serve my purpose, Yes you would think that having
this feature on the cheapest door opener would be a standard. I guess
they needed to save 50 cents.
Thanks again and a great site too!
