Garage door Answered

Ok, so I've about had it with my garage door opener. It's supposed to sense when objects are underneath it and retract from closing, but it doesn't. I want to replace it, please recommend me an option that actually works. I have two kids and they leave their toys all over, that door would eventually either wreck their toys or worse, hurt my kids. Thanks in advance!

There are plenty of garage door openers that feature safety beam sensors to prevent this exact occurrence and endanger others or smash objects, but the one I'd recommend is the B750 from Chamberlain (https://www.optimainstitute.com/garage/door-opener.html#1-chamberlain-b750). Aside from the fact that this is one of the top manufacturers for openers, the B750 is a long-term buy (I have mine for 2 years now and it's in top-notch condition although it really gets abused on a daily basis).
