Probably some type of motor that gets powered by electricity.

Some require an outlet on wall near the top of the door (on hinge side).

Wow, you made an electrical post? I'm surprised. I didn't even think you were an electrician.

I installed a few like this a couple years ago. A receptacle above the door worked great.
Installed strike plates with them.
Knowing usage and furniture placement is important for the strike plates.
The strikes were LV and I left extra cable in the wall so the plate could be relocated later..
This model has a shorter hold open time then the ones I did. But I like the remote this one shows.

This is a complete kit that is required in most (perhaps all) areas.

I've done a bunch of the stanley magic open door openers/closers. The full install manual is online.

Most that I’ve connected were wired on the hinge side with a 120/15a circuit. Hard wired into the motor. You could hook up a cord though. The motor is mounted above the door. The remote switches can be either battery (wireless) or wired from the motor, low voltage.

I like the switch and lock option placement.
Thanks

I've done a couple of Stanley's as well and they are pretty specific. The ones I've done were hard wired and the feed had to be precisely placed since space inside the units was tight.
