The Best Electric Garage Door Opener

Is your garage opener starting to feel its age? Could this be the time for you to change it? But which garage door opener model should you choose? With so many makes and models, and with the prices varying between single and double doors, it’s easy to be lost. If you’d like to purchase the best electric garage door opener currently on the market, here are the reasons why LiftMaster’s 8550Wwill both meet all your needs and last a long time.

It’s top features: quiet, efficient and uses leading-edge technology

If you are looking for a garage door opener that’s efficient, uses the most modern Internet technologies and especially, lasts a long time, the 8550W is sure to impress you.

  • It’s among the quietest

This model door opener comes with a DC motor. Compared to door openers with AC-type motors often found on the market, a DC motor starts slowly, increases to a normal speed, then slows before stopping. No shaking or unnecessary noise. And don’t worry, it’s not slower opening or closing that a regular garage door opener. What’s more, it’s a door opener that uses a rubber belt reinforced with steel to drive the motor instead of a chain. This makes it a much quieter opener, especially if you have a bedroom located over the garage.

  • It’s reliable

It’s equipped with a backup battery so you can continue to open and close your garage in case of a power outage. This battery is strong enough to supply the opener through 20 open/close cycles. Then, as soon as power returns, the battery recharges itself.

  • It keeps you safe

It comes with the Security+ 2.0 system from LiftMaster. This ensures that the signal from your remote cannot be picked up by anyone else.  As well, it has the Timer-to-Close feature in case you forget to close your garage door after leaving, which is especially handy for those who back into the garage to park. In addition, it is equipped with a motion detector which activates the garage opener lights if you enter by the access door, very practical if you don’t want to stumble around a dark garage looking for the control panel to turn on the lights.

  • It has the latest in communication technology

Using Wi-Fi, you are able to open and close your garage door from your smartphone, tablet or laptop, wherever you are in the world. With the MyQ system, you can get alerts telling you if someone uses your garage door and at exactly what time. This technology removes the worry of wondering at your place of work if you closed the garage door or not. As well, this feature allows you open the door remotely, giving access to someone you trust.
