garage door opener not connecting to electrical

Recommended Posts

does anyone know how to get the garage door opener connected to a switch?  It will not allow an electrical connection to any type of switch.

 

I do not see even see an garage door opener button switch in the library.. Only the actual garage door opener.

You can use a doorbell and change the label

You could also draw a cad line/arc/spline (whichever you prefer) manually and put in on the electrical connections layer. Then you could connect the opener directly to the switch, because in reality, it's not the ceiling outlet that's wired to the switch.

Connect the switch to the outlet first then move the connection wire to the opener box.
