We are constructing a new home and I was wondering how to prewire the garage doors. We will have one EA-5 controller and we have two garages with 2 Liftmaster 8550 garage door openers that I would like to control. We've got the rest of the wiring all settled, but the issue of the garage doors is still open.
Would 1 CAT6 from each motor to the EA-5 and 1 CAT 6 from each door sensor (total of 4 wires, 2 for contacts, 2 for relays) to the EA-5 be the correct way to prewire? Would that even work with the Liftmaster 8550?
The C4 dealer that is contracted with our builder indicated i needed to wire from motor 1 to motor 2 and from door sensor 1 to door sensor 2 for the pre-wire which confused me but I think they might be assuming i may go wireless with the card access garage door package.
Thanks in advance!
