The manual indicates to have the feature - but it requires a special wall door opener which has the feature programmed into the wall unit.
I could not figure out how to turn it on, beyond getting a programmable wall control unit.

Yes but only from inside the garage using the emergency release handle and opening the door manually. For automatic usage when there is a power failure you need to have a model that has a battery back up system.

1/2 HP Belt Drive Garage Door Opener with MyQ Technology is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 171.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Whisper Quiet?? Although a leading consumer magazine gave it top overall marks, if you are looking for "whisper quiet" operation, as this model touts, look hard at models with slow start and stop. I bought this model for a location under a bedroom and while the motor operation is relatively smooth, the initial jolt of the motor opening and closing is not. Overall it's a good product, warranty, and has competitive features and price, but if you need whisper quiet, look hard at the Genie and Somner brands as well. If whisper quiet is not high on your list, then this model is a good choice considering all of its features and price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought this opener to replace one that had been in operation for more than 12 years before suffer... Bought this opener to replace one that had been in operation for more than 12 years before suffering a mechanical failure. This new opener is quiet and provides the power needed for a single bay door. I really like the ability to quickly set up and down travel and the door seems to automatically use the correct amount of force to open and close the door. The only thing I find odd is it seems to reset the tension on the belt each time the door closes. I do like that the opener came with a new button for the wall, two pre-programmed car remotes and a new keypad for the doorway. Means I didn't have to buy anything else. Otherwise it worked with all the old wiring and sensors. Nice quiet opener that works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Opener This is a very quiet garage door opener. It's much quieter than the screw type opener that I had. Assembly was very easy, as was setting the travel limits. Mounting the unit to the ceiling was a bit difficult, but only because I was doing it alone. The first one I bought was missing the bag of hardware. Chamberlain was going to send me a replacement bag, but would've taken over by week to get to me, so I took everything back to HD and exchanged it for the new one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Your car remote may not work!! And to make your car's HomeLink work you may need to buy a $25 bridge device. So another trip to the store to shell out more $. This may be the case for pre-2013 cars, even if your HomeLink worked with your old opener. There's no backward compatibility. Also, the instructions are not as clear as they ought to be on a couple steps. For example, it is not clear that you can not use your old safety sensors and mounted door control button.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Open Says Me! A good opener. I installed one of these for my home several years ago and it has operated flawlessly. This one I installed on a client's house and she is thrilled. I think it could be a little quieter, however it is good enough that I and my clients are satisfied. It has better lighting and other openers that I have installed. It's quality appears to be better than most. All-in-all, a very good value.

This opener is not compatible with my car to program, so I don't have to use the remote. Nowhere did it say that it was only compatible with certain vehicles. Now I have to order something called a "Repeater" for an additional $30.00 to make it work. If I had known this I could have easily bought another brand. I've programed two or three other brands to this car before with no problems!

It even has a motion detector to turn the lights on when you walk in and out even though the door is up. I highly recommend the whisper belt drive. It is very quiet compared to the chains. Easy to wire but a little challenging to assemble. This was my first and if I do another it would be much faster. The only reason I don't rate it at 5 stars is because they don't provide a motor mounting bracket to hang it from and it is heavy. I was lucky that the bracket from the old genie motor matched up perfectly and I had just enough heavy rated bolts to make it go together securely with some spare brackets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did the job but with a caution! The opener works very well. Caution! it did not fit in the same space as the older Chamberlain unit, requiring new ceiling bracing. This is where the complaint comes! The local Home Depot didn't say that you had to arrange for installation when you bought the unit, and they would have required us to disassemble the unit, return it, and then buy it again, with installation. Really? Home Depot needs to make it clearer about their limits up front. And to take down their big signs for the unit with lifetime motor warranty, that is no longer being offered . Disappointing, yes. Bait and switch? Maybe. We found a local contractor to install the unit for reasonable, so the job is done.
