Output Mode Sets the operating mode of the outputs of the DoorMaster (security door opener). You can set the following options:
Self-Powered The door opener is powered by the DoorMaster. Output 2 provides 12 V/1 A for this purpose. The theft protection can be attached to output 1.
Relay Use this mode to power door openers with up to 24 V/1 A. Note that you need an additional power adapter for this mode. The theft protection can be attached to output 1.
