Authors comments
Door opener works well, but the user is not satisfied with its appearance. He wants to try to have the covers painted white. The arm is only available in black. Nor was he satisfied with the installation. Besam’s electrician pulled a cable that was ugly, but redid it after the user complained. The user has emphasized that all electric installations in the house should be attractive.
