What is this ? -- on the side of the Garage

Need advice

David

Looks like a key switch for an electric garage door opener. These predate the modern keypads we have today.

Thank you …Robert

They went out with the rotary phone… :thinking:

It’s a “dummy” switch. It activates a red light and buzzer in your bedroom. Let’s the wife know when you get home late after a night out with the boys… :sunglasses:

Amazing that instead of googling something they post it and wait for an answer when the answer is available in 3 seconds online - especially with something that has its entire description written on the front of it.

Agree James. Google only gives you practical answers. Not any that we get to enjoy here, which are more fun and entertaining. :wink:

James, The 0 Took a lot of time to spin back. Like it was in slow motion. Felt sorry for those who had a 0 in their phone number.

Garage door opener switch (key required)…todays key pads put these out of use.

Try to work that rotary when you’re three sheets to the wind. To be honest it didn’t help much when they were touch tone!

Welcome to our forum, Daniel!..Enjoy! :smile:
