We have already created several videos about Berner GA101 garage door opener in the Funkyhome YouTube Channel.

The delivery of the garage door opener …

As mentioned in the Unboxing, in the Garage Door Opener Installation Guide and in the Battery Solar Garage Door Opener Installation Guide, we ordered a few more products in addition to the garage door opener. Here’s how everything was delivered.

So let’s start by unpacking the Berner GA101 battery solar components.

One of the most important components is the actual Berner GA101 garage door opener, which comes with a power supply and a handheld transmitter.

The 24V 1500mA power supply can be used to directly charge the battery, which comes in another box along with a holder.

If you order the solar panel, it comes with a matching charge controller and solar panel mount.

However, since we also wanted to get an overview of how to optionally expand the garage door opener, we also ordered a few additional products. Here you can see the Berner BHS121 2-command handheld transmitter unidirectional learning 2905030, the Berner BHS421 2-command fixed code learning 2901898, the Berner BHS591 radio code button fixed code 2901906, the Berner SLÜ23/2 mini key switch AP IP54 aluminum 2902100, the Berner STV-ST wicket door safety device and the Hoermann PR1 relay board 437130. We also ordered a Berner BHS211 handheld transmitter Blue Car1 2901895, which is also very practical for a motorcycle.

But why actually Hoermann? The Berner company has been part of the Hoermann Group since 2003.

By the way, there are numerous other products from Berner, such as the Berner BDS591 bidirectional radio code switch or even a Berner FFL12 wireless finger scan system, a Berner BDE415 bidirectional socket outlet receiver if you want to use other products or third-party drives, EL101/EL301/EWLS AP4 photoelectric sensors, a TL40RD/GR LED traffic light or even a Berner 2906112 box as a LAN or Internet interface and Berner BiSure radio technology. Internet interface and Berner BiSure radio technology, which can be controlled with the Berner Secure Mobile App. However, you should carefully check which products are compatible with each other before buying. Also, we will return to the important point of “fixed code” and “learning” in the further course of the test.
