Overriding the foto cells?

Is it possible to override the foto cells by just connecting the wires at the rear of the opener so I do not need to foto cells to get the doors to close via the app? At the moment I can open the doors with the app, but not close them since I do not have the foto cells mounted.

No, the sensors need to be connected,  There is a signal that is being monitored for and if not seen it will not allow the door to close.

I have see where people tape the sensors together facing each other and then mounted them above the opener.  However this defeats the purpose of them.

Ok - I hear you.
Next question: I have the LM60 openers and I have also gotten hold of 3 sets of foto cells. Can anyone show/tell me how to connect the wires at the back of the LM60s? A picture would be great :-)
