How it works
Autoslide is designed to be a universal, easy to install product that retrofits to your existing sliding doors. The patented Autoslide system is based on a simple “rack and pinion” design. Toothed tracks are attached to the active door panel and then the Autoslide uses a cog that meshes into the tracks to push and pull your sliding door. To power the Autoslide, simply plug it into a regular wall outlet.
- Easy 2 Piece Track / Track System
- Aluminium Cover and Indicator Lights for 4 different Modes
- 24V Motor with gear(cog)
- Simple one-step Sensor Learn Button
- 8 Dipswitches for Different Settings/Functions
EASY-TO-USE AUTOMATIC SLIDING DOOR SYSTEM
For Your Existing Sliding Doors at Home or the Office
The Autoslide was invented specifically to automate sliding doors and windows in the home. It can be attached to sliding patio doors, pocket doors, and barn style doors. Any type of sliding panel can now be automated with Autoslide. In addition to automating sliding doors in the home, the Autoslide can also be used in light-commercial environments, such as a doctor’s office, if it is equipped with the Elite Motor.

PUSH BUTTON AND REMOTE CONTROL ACTIVATION
All Autoslide kits include two wireless push buttons which are fitted to doors simply using double sided tape. These wireless push buttons can work remotely up to 50 feet away from the Autoslide system. Additional wireless push buttons can also be purchased separately to be mounted next to the bedside for bed-ridden patients.
Two push buttons are required for every sliding door. One mounted inside and one outside. If push buttons are mounted away from the sliding door ie. next to the bed or on a wheelchair, Autoslide also comes with factory built-in with “Pull Assist” / Power Assist where just a gentle pull of the door handle will activate a full open. This is also known in the automatic door industry as “Semi-Automatic” doors. In the absence of push buttons next to the sliding door, users can access entry thru the sliding door via pull assist. Mini remote controls are available as optional extras or as part of the Clicker Bundle package.Two remote controls are included in every Clicker Bundle.
The remote controls enable easy Mode switching between Automatic, Stacker, Secure and Pet without having to reach the control panel on the Autoslide drive system itself. Useful if Autoslide is mounted up high.
MOTION SENSOR ACTIVATION
Motion Sensor Activated Automatic Door — Hands free motion sensor activation for humans and pets Designed specially for home use, the Autoslide infra-red motion sensors have a much shorter beam length compared to commercial automatic door sensors.
This is to avoid any unnecessary activations of the sensor in a small domestic / residential environment and triggering numerous false door opens.
Two motion sensors are needed per Autoslide door – ie. one inside and one outside.
REHANDING DRIVE SYSTEM
The Autoslide drive system is designed to be rehanded easily if required. (ie. reassemble motor on the drive system from left to right to suit different door openings and/or applications) REHANDING INSTRUCTIONS.
Below Illustrates When Autoslide Must Be Rehanded Before Installation:
Floor Mounting Autoslide to a Slide LEFT to Open Door
If Autoslide can only be installed at the bottom of a slide left to open door, then the drive system must first be rehanded so it can then be floor mounted to the left of the moving panel in front of the fixed panel instead of the clear opening.
Installing to a Slide LEFT to Open Internal Cavity / Pocket Door
For internal cavity / pocket doors, Autoslide should only be installed to the top of door. For a slide left to open pocket door, the drive system must first be rehanded so that the motor and gear is on the left of the system. The Autoslide unit can then be installed on the top to the left of the door.
Top Mount over Fixed Panel on a Slide RIGHT to Open Door
By default, Autoslide can be top mounted without rehanding to a slide right to open door by installing unit over the clear opening. If installation over the fixed panel is preferred, then the Autoslide drive system must be rehanded.
