Garage Door Openers – The Dark Side

When you purchase a garage door opener, what comes to mind? Most likely a device that will help you open and close your garage door. Well not for John Eady, 61, from Sheffield. He discovered that the device used to opener doors could also be used to block police scanners.

Not Just a Garage Door Opener

The device is the Target LT (Laser Track) 400, is used to send a signal to your garage door as you approach to tell it to open. The manufactures of the product though realized that it also will interfere with police scanner. This being said, are people really buying it for a garage door opener?  The LT400 is said to be the first device of its kind available in Britain and is sold with the warning that it should only be used for the purposes for which it was designed – opening things. Even the sales reps are quoted as saying “as well as functioning as an automatic remote control system, the LT400 is also an effective counter-measure against police speed laser guns.” The manual does give you a warning “Please be aware that to use it to actively interfere with police laser guns may be deemed an offence.”
