Garage Door and Opener Repair: About City:
A garage door opener is a motorized device that opens and closes garage doors. Most are controlled by switches on the garage wall, as well as by remote controls carried in the garage owner's cars

The electric opener
The electric overhead garage door opener was invented by C.G. Johnson in 1926 in Hartford City, Indiana. Contrary to popular belief, the electric opener does not provide the actual lifting power to open and close a heavy garage door. Instead, most of the actual lifting power comes from the counterbalance springs that are under tension to lift the garage door via steel counterbalance cables. The electric opener only controls how far the door opens and closes, as well as the force the garage door exerts. In most cases, the garage door opener also acts as a lock.

The typical electric garage door opener consists of a power unit that contains the electric motor. The power unit attaches to a track. A trolley connected to an arm that attaches to the top of the garage door slides back and forth on the track, thus opening and closing the garage door. The trolley is guided along the track by a chain, belt, or screw that turns when the motor is operated. A quick-release mechanism is attached to the trolley to allow the garage door to be disconnected from the opener for manual operation during a power failure or in case of emergency. Limit switches on the power unit control the distance the garage door opens and closes once the motor receives a signal from the remote control or wall push button to operate the door.

The entire assembly hangs above the garage door. The power unit hangs from the ceiling and is located towards the rear of the garage. The end of the track on the opposite end of the power unit attaches to a header bracket that is attached to the header wall above the garage door. The power head is usually supported by punched angle iron.

Remote control
The first garage door opener remote controls were simple and consisted of a simple transmitter (the remote) and receiver which controlled the opener mechanism. The transmitter would transmit on a designated frequency; the receiver would listen for the radio signal, then open or close the garage, depending on the door position. The basic concept of this can be traced back to World War II. This type of system was used to detonate remote bombs. While novel at the time, the technology ran its course when garage door openers became widely available and used. Then, not only did a person open their garage door, they opened their neighbor’s garage door as well. While the garage door remote is low in power and in range, it was powerful enough to interfere with other receivers in the area.

The second stage of the wireless garage door opener system deals with the shared frequency problem. To rectify this, systems required a garage door owner to preset a digital code via dip switches on the receiver and transmitter. While these switches provided garage door systems with 28 = 256 different codes they were not designed with high security in mind; the main intent was to avoid interference with similar systems nearby.

The third stage of garage door opener market uses a frequency spectrum range between 300-400 MHz and most of the transmitter/receivers rely on hopping or rolling code technology. This approach prevents perpetrators from recording a code and replaying it to open a garage door. Since the signal is supposed to be significantly different from that of any other garage door remote control, manufacturers claim it is impossible for someone other than the owner of the remote to open the garage. When the transmitter sends a code, it generates a new code using an encoder. The receiver, after receiving a correct code, uses the same encoder with the same original seed to generate a new code that it will accept in the future. Because there is a high probability that someone might accidentally push the open button while not in range and desynchronize the code, the receiver generates look-a-head codes ahead of time.

The fourth stage of garage door opener systems is similar to third stage, but it is limited to the 315 MHz frequency. The 315 MHz frequency range avoids interference from the Land Mobile Radio System (LMRS) used by the U.S. military.

The community of Plano originated in the early 1840's in the Republic of Texas. Most of the early pioneers migrated from Kentucky and Tennessee as small groups of settlers found their way to Collin County's blackland prairie. Initial efforts to settle the area began in 1841, but progress was halted by Indian attacks until 1844. The settlements were widely scattered in 1844 and only a few were made in 1845. In 1846, William Foreman bought Peter's Colony land from Sanford Beck and settled a half-mile northeast of Plano. Plano's birth was due in part to the enterprises of the Foreman family. Mr. Foreman erected a sawmill and gristmill that would be in demand by his neighbors. Later a store and gin were added and these facilities attracted other settlers to the area. 

Joseph, Daniel and Samuel Klepper took up their head-rights in 1847 at the present site of the city of Plano. Many more people came to help form a community. Silas Harrington, his brother Alfred and Dr. Henry Dye came to settle in 1848. Mr. Dye was the first medical doctor in the settlement. Mail service was established around 1850 and William Foreman's home became the unofficial post office. The scattered settlements had now become a closer community and Dr. Dye felt the need for a proper name and he dispatched to Washington D.C., an application requesting the name of Fillmore, in honor of the President of the United States. The name Fillmore was rejected and the name Foreman was suggested but declined by William Foreman. Dr. Dye, determined to have a community with a recognized name suggested Plano. He understood the word Plano to mean "plain" (to describe the surrounding terrain) in Spanish. Postal authorities approved the name and Plano became the name of the community. William Foreman served as the first postmaster. 

Although raising livestock was the principal business in the county, more and more of the populace began farming the rich, black land. Churches and schools were built and local business began to prosper. In the closing years of the 1850s growth was steady, but this halted with the arrival of the Civil War. From 1861-1864, the growth of Plano was at a standstill. As the South would surrender in defeat, the men began to return to Plano to pick up their run-down farms and persist again to open more business and trade to attract new people to the area. New people came from the mechanized North as well as the South to escape their gutted communities and farms to start a new life. 

With the completion of the Houston and Texas Railroad in 1872, the city was on its way to new growth. By 1874 the population numbered over 500. Plano was the first depot by rail entering Collin County by the south. The city was incorporated in June, 1873, and the town's first official mayor was C.J.E. Kellner. Fires in the business district destroyed the original buildings that were constructed with the coming of the railroad; the oldest structure in the district was the only building to survive the fire of 1881 in which 51 places of business were destroyed--the entire business district. Plano's determined businessmen would not be beaten, however, and after a short time of "business as usual," the reconstruction period began. Old burned and wooden structures were replaced with modern brick buildings and a new look of prosperity took place. Buildings and business flourished in the 1880's. Almost anything would be bought or traded in Plano. 

Throughout much of the 20th century Plano relied on surrounding farms and ranches for its livelihood. By the 1960s, the growth of both Dallas to the south and the success of several large high-technology firms began to make their influence felt on the local economy and city planners began making preparations for the growth they believed was inevitable. When the U.S. population began its historic shift in the 1970s, Plano welcomed newcomers with open arms and this resulted in Plano being one of the fastest-growing cities in Texas and the U.S.
