Whether someone believes in climate change or not, it definitely seems like the weather has become more violent and more extreme over the past few years. Blizzards, tornadoes, hurricanes and thunderstorms have the power to effortlessly knock out a region’s electricity for an extended period of time and severely inhibit life at home.

Linear‘s new Battery Backup Unit (BBU) is a new accessory device that installers can offer to clients that own the company’s LDCO800 garage door opener so they can open and close their garage doors during power failures. Linear says the BBU operates quietly and its compact design enables electronics professionals to quickly and easily mount the device. Once installed the BBU can power the LDCO800 up to 24 hours to allow homeowners to move their cars or to access things such as snow blowers.

Linear adds that it is now shipping the LDCO800 garage door openers preconfigured to accept the addition of the BBU.
