Complete Independence
At the touch of a button, the Open Sesame automatic door opener gives complete independence to enter and exit a residential or public / light commercial door (which can be for an elevator or lift or a gate).* This professional grade system unlatches a locked door, then opens, pauses and closes it - all automatically. Note: it does not lock or unlock your door hardware. The system can be operated by a variety of wheelchair mounted remote controls, wall push pads and other specialty controls customized to accommodate almost any physical disability. *(see application note here)
Satisfaction Guaranteed
It is our intention that an Open Sesame automatic door opener last a lifetime. We offer an unprecedented 90-day Satisfaction Guarantee and a 5-year Limited Warranty. With our metal parts and ultra reliable motors, we are confident that the Open Sesame door opener will provide many years of reliable service. That’s why our rugged door opening systems have been installed numerous times on ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition.
Assembled by Craftsmen
Hand Assembled
Professional grade Open Sesame door opener systems are assembled by hand by individual craftsman. After assembly, your door opener is inspected and thoroughly tested as a complete working system with all components.
Top Quality System
Open Sesame door openers are highly reliable, complete systems – and made in the U.S.A. We utilize the highest quality materials available: permanently lubricated steel gears, steel housing, commercial grade door release hardware. Unlike some flimsy overseas units, we use no plastic parts in our systems that could easily break after only months of use.
Internal Battery
Battery Back-up Standard
Open Sesame door operating systems provide a great sense of security: in the event of a power outage, our openers still operate at full power use of your door for several hours, allowing easy access when you need it the most. On other manufacturers’ units, this important safety feature is either not available or an expensive addition. Note: The battery is always used for normal operation.
Power or Manual Operation
Open Sesame door systems offer unique conveniences in operation. A door can be controlled with a remote control door opening device or operated manually. Unlike some other door opening devices the Open Sesame is completely smooth in operation and feel. There is no clicking, friction and/or resistance when opening and closing the door. The door moves freely and can be left open or ajar for pets, repeated passage or for ventilation.
The Open Sesame system incorporates the use of a door release mechanism installed in the door frame. This type of mechanism, called an “electric strike”, is commonly used in apartment buildings where an intercom system is present, and allows the continued use of all existing keys. There are some exceptions where non-locking door handles are present and existing hardware may need to be replaced.**
Electric Strike Plate
Remote Control Standard
Each Open Sesame door system comes standard with a remote control that can be either hand held or easily mounted on a wheelchair. This high-powered remote device can activate the door system from anywhere in the home, and can be activated with fingers, palm, the side of the hand and more.
Standard Remote Control
Optional Controls
We also offer remote controls that can be connected to specialty switches and wheelchair controls. The Open Sesame door system can be customized with a wide range of activation devices such as wall push pads, X10 home control systems and other environmental controls. Please contact us for expert consultation to find a way to accommodate any range of disability.
Available Keyless Entry Pad
A popular option to the Open Sesame door system is the keyless entry pad – a wireless device easily installed on the outside of the door. Keypads are usually intended for attendants and care providers to allow easy access to the residence without dispensing keys. Our keypads use a 4-digit combination that can be easily changed at a moment’s notice.

** It is strongly recommended that you continue to carry keys to your home to use in the event of an unexpected failure of some part of the Open Sesame Door System.
Easy Install - Low Voltage
Most installations take less than 2 hours - far less time and labor than most other door openers. Plus there's no need to hire an electrician, since the Open Sesame door opener is a safe low voltage device. Just plug in the 24 volt AC adapter to the nearest (within 30 ft) wall outlet, plug in the door opener to the small wall mounted junction box, and you're set.
