Switch Beside Garage Door

Moved into this house last year , Trying to figure out what this button does ? the white wire goes to garage opener. . Tried pressing it while the garage door is opening/closing ,nothing happens.

  • What happens if you press it when the door's not moving??

  • Did you try it while the door was closed or open. My button cycles the door. opens it if it is closed, closes it if it is open. It does nothing if the door is in motion.
