Garage door sensor hood
by SirGeekALot, published
Necessity is the mother of invention. I have a Printrbot Plus (with Super-Z!) so the fix I decided on was to print a tubular sun hood to prevent this from happening in the future. A quick measurement with digital calipers (an investment that seems wiser every day) read the outer diameter as ~11.23mm, which is more likely to be 7/8â€, but whatever.
Anyway, I have no idea if this will be useful to anyone but me, but here it is. Enjoy!

I'm in the Garage door business. Just reverse the photocells so that the sunlight will shine on the sender rather than the receiver and your problem is solved.
My garage door opener gets temperamental with the evening sun, facing west as it is. I may try this out!
