The Autoslide IR Motion Sensor is an add-on accessory for the Autoslide automatic door opener for home and can be purchased either individually or as a twin pack. The Wired IR Motion Sensor connects to the Autoslide using the cables that are included. It can be installed above the door for people or low on the door jamb for pet use. When the IR beam from the automatic door motion sensor is broken by an approaching person or pet, the Autoslide system will immediately be triggered to open the door and provide hands-free convenience. This is especially helpful when your hands are full or if a certain family member has trouble remembering to shut the door behind them.
The IR beam length is adjustable, allowing it to be set so that an approaching young child will not activate the door. The Wired IR Sensor is hardwired to the Autoslide system, it does not require any batteries for operation. However the Wireless version does require batteries.
It is important to note that installation of only one IR Motion Sensor will only automate the sliding door one-way. To fully automate your sliding door from the inside and outside, two Infrared Motion Sensors will need to be installed. Please note that the infrared motion sensors must be mounted out of direct sunlight or weather/rain exposure.
Sunlight shining into the sensor can be read as heat and falsely trigger it.

Autoslide has never disappointed! This door opener for my dogs has been the BEST purchase I've ever made.
Hardwired Motion Sensor

Great service during the coronavirus pandemic! This was the last piece I needed for my custom application of an Autoslide system for a secret bookcase door into a home theater.

They work perfect except when the sun hits them directly which I have not found a solution for. If you don't have direct sunlight you should not have a problem.
Autoslide is the best
by Karl J. -
These worked well except in my case, the sun activated the outside sensor. Talked with Brian E. at Autoslide. Shipped me the microwave sensors which work better for my application. Excellent customer service from Brian. Easy to make contact with, was eager to solve my problem. An American company with people who speak English. Why go with a foreign product. Might cost less, but not in the long run.
not for outdoor use

I'm on my 3rd sensor. they last about 6 months then they don't work any more. The "outdoor" sensor has no seal. and the cover usually pops right off. I'm kinda stuck with it right now, But I am not happy with autoslide
