Automatic Sliding Exterior Patio Door
Behind the scenes installation video of the Dado XT1 exterior sliding door system. This video features a PGT 4 panel aluminum/glass door. The Dado automation was easily added to this door in about 4 hours total working time. Some wood and metal notching on the side panels of the door frame are required to allow the belt to pass through. A motor is mounted on one side of the track, a pulley block is mounted on the opposite side. A belt is ran through the channels at the top. The master controller is mounted directly below the motor. Dado LCD Touch Panels are mounted on the inside and outside of the door. The door has it’s own latch, and sensors were added in the latch to detect if the door is latched or unlatched. If the door is latched, the LCD Touch Panels or other controls will not function. Any home automation or contact closure can connect to the master controller. The LCD Touch Panels include a hand wave sensor, numeric keypad optional graphic, Lock button. If the power is ON, the motor will hold the door in it’s current position and will be difficult to move by hand, however this is not to be used for high security. Use the built in latch for better security.
The system can be programmed in a matter of minutes. The LCD Touch Screen will allow the user to open 1 panel, 2 panels, 3 panels, or all panels.
No specific training is required to install the system. Dado Door will guide you through the install process so you can use your own contractors or installer.
