If you already have that, then all you need to do is download the free app from the Play Store (Android# or iTunes #Apple). The opener will connect wirelessly to your network wireless router.

no, you do need an ethernet-style wired connection. The receiver communicates with the door opener using a radio signal similar to the remotes you keep in your car, but depends on a wired internet connection to communicate remotely to your smartphone, etc. Note that the MyQ also needs power at the point of internet connectivity. If your wi-fi router has no ports available you need an ethernet hub for splitting the internet connection - these are pretty cheap. I ran into this with my installation - I have an Apple airport wi-fi router with a single input ethernet cable port and no network outputs other than wi-fi, so I dusted off my old Linksys router with the 6 outputs on the back and just use it just as a hub with the wi-fi not configured. The cable modem wire goes into to the Linksys input port, and the MyQ and Airport plug into the Linksys's output ports. Works fine. Read Less

Answer: 
What a joke, I contacted chamberlain, their tech support said that 1.25hps is equivalent to 3/4hp. Chamberlain's site says hps is horsepower strength. After searching google i find that NOBODY except chamberlain uses HPS. Literally, there are no posts about "horsepower strength" in relation to motors or engines anywhere, except on their site.

So not only does 1.25hps lure consumers to thinking its actually better than a 3/4HP drive unit, but homedepot put 1.25 HP, not HPS on their title for this product online, but also, then mis-stated it being 1/2 HP in the specifications of the online product. Read Less

Answer: 
Not sure if you're getting the facts correctly from the description you've referenced. It may be a good idea to visit your local HD store and read it right off of the box. The WIFI technology has worked very well. Hope this helps you, whatever you buy, don't buy a Genie!

1.25 HPS Belt Drive Battery Backup Smartphone Ready Garage Door Opener with MyQ Technology is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 370.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE it! I considered this product simply because of the lifetime motor, lifetime belt and is very quite! My nephew assembled the unit, uninstalled our old Genie and mounted this. I was left to deal with the electrical part. Since I am NOT an electrician, I installed the wires generically to the walls and ceiling until I can have an electrician attach the wires to our existing concealed wires. The belt hangs a bit loose but it doesn't appear to pose a problem. I also mounted the wireless key pad on the outside wall of the garage door! I LOVE the ease of using my q. I believe this to be the best garage door opener on the market!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full features and easy to install Great door opener. Compared to genie after power surge took one of our openers out. Genie is not what it was in the past. Chamberlain is very quiet and fast opening. Included the keyless entry pad, 2 openers, and wifi MyQ system. This is the opener I would buy if the other genie went out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought the opener on 11/21/2016 and home depot could not get an installer to install until 11/29/... Bought the opener on 11/21/2016 and home depot could not get an installer to install until 11/29/2016 ( Ronson Door Sales & Home Depot Coon Rapids) . I wish now I had canceled because of the wait. The opener was installed in under an hour but stopped working within an hour of being installed. Called both Ronson Door Sales and Home Depot and neither got back to me until the next day and neither would take care of the opener not closing. I had no lights on for the sensors on either side and super slow opening. I had to hold the buttons down on switch to close. The installer would not assume an responsibly for the opener failing within hours of being installed and Home Depot just said call installer and after that call Chamberlain. I have stopped payment for opener and install. After 24 minutes of music with Chamberlain hanged up and waited, then called again and waited 19 minutes. Based on conversation with Chamberlain opener is not hooked up right and door might not be balanced. Just as I was starting to give up I saw a garage door company truck for Genie coming down. I flagged him down and he was short of time but quickly discovered a wire not hooked up correctly. He then witnessed the slow, speed of the opener and said the installer missed something or the motor is already going bad. Home Depot in Coon Rapids, MN and Ronson Doors still will not help. I will likely this weekend take it down by myself and return this super slow opener. I have yet to get the Wifi to work or my van and car remotes to work with this Chamberlain, will go back to Genie. This was the top model for Opener at Home Depot, piece of junk for the money. My screw drive Genie was ask quiet or quieter than this model. The opener takes 20 seconds to open my 7 ft door and 17 to close. My third garage with an old genie closes and opens in half that time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All that and a bag of chips too! My 23 year old son assembled inside of an hour. The new Chamberlain replaced an older alternate brand opener and the difference is amazing. Super quiet (worth price of admission alone), auto shuts in 10 minutes, sensor light knows when we enter the garage and comes on, display panel on the opener as noted in picture. Then top this with outside security panel where we simply open by entering a code replacing a keyed entry and the fact we have a phone app and can check if it's open or closed. This unit has the safety sensors that prevents it from closing on someone the former model didn't provide due to its age. Add it has a battery back up and seriously this simply should have been done years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chamberlain 1.25HP Belt Drive Garage Opener This thing is amazing. It's more powerful than I really needed but the MyQ feature, among others, was a good upgrade. I have used the MyQ app to open/ close and to check if I had actually closed the door quite frequently. The installation wasn't too bad - follow the pictures and you should be ok. I was able to put this up myself using the existing mounting holes and L-brackets. I just needed a hand getting both ends up to the right height at the same time. It runs really smoothly - MUCH quieter than my old one. My bedroom butts up to the garage so not hearing the door open/ close when I'm trying to sleep is great. I plan on installing the wireless keypad sometime in the spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet as a mouse When My 15 year old chain driven Liftmaster finally gave out (at the same time that I had to have a garage door repair company replace two thrown sprigs), the technician quoted me $500.00 to replace it, and it would have had none of the features this thing is packed with. I had never installed a garage door opener before, had this assembelled in 20 mins and installed in 30 min. The myQ installation is also a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet Operation and Feature Rich I ordered this unit to replace a ten year old high end screw drive opener that was loud and lacked many of the features offered by this new opener. The installation is definitely not quick if you haven't replaced a garage door opener before, but is not overly complicated if you have the time to read the instructions and the space to keep everything organized. There are a lot of parts and pieces, and the instructions don't do a great job of identifying which parts go where, so you'll definitely want to keep all of the parts together and well sorted. The only mistake that I made was assuming that, because two prior garage openers had been mounted to the drywall in my house, the instructions were being overly cautious when requiring that the header be mounted to wood. As it turns out, this door is jerkier (perhaps because of the 3/4 HP motor) and it ripped out of the drywall before I was even done training it. It is definitely quieter when mounted correctly anyway, so make sure you follow directions and mount it to a stud! I also used the installation upgrade package, which includes a horizontal bracket, upgraded vertical brackets, and covers for the wires. I would highly recommend this upgrade for a cleaner look once installed, and the rubber sound dampening bolts included to attach the motor housing to the ceiling bracket. Perhaps it is a bit pricey for what it is, but the cost is only a fraction of the overall cost of the opener, and is worth the improved appearance and quiet operation. The sound of the motor takes some getting used to, as it sounds like my drill when the battery is dying. I am not used to hearing a high pitched whine from the garage door opener, so I initially felt like it was underpowered. As I've gotten more used to the sound, however, I realize that it is simply a different sound. More importantly, it is much quieter. I noticed a difference in the garage, but the real difference is inside the house. Our old opener would trigger the motion-activated camera in the nursery and vibrate pictures on walls bordering the garage. All of this is gone, and you cannot hear the opener AT ALL from the nursery that backs up to the garage--even when listening for it. What a life saver! I used a decibel meter to measure how loud the old door and new door are when opening and closing, and attached a picture of the comparison. While the old door opened much faster, it was at a cost of about 20db more noise. The close speed is about the same, but this new opener is about 10db quieter. A 10db increase is double the noise, and a 20db increase is quadruple the noise. So while the opener is not truly "whisper" quiet, it is less than half as loud as my old screw drive opener, which I would consider to be of average loudness. The app is very useful, but has limited functionality. It literally only allows you to see if the garage is open or closed, how long it has been in that position, and to remotely open or close it. I attached a video of the app being used to open and close the door. As you can see, there is a 1-2 second delay (over 4G LTE cellular connection) in response time, plus a 10 second warning to alert anyone nearby when the door is about to close due to a timer or remote close command. One of my favorite features, which is not heavily advertised, is that you can put the opener in learn mode from the control pad rather than climbing up to press a button on the motor. This is also how you set up the included remote keypad and the included internet gateway. The internet gateway must be connected to a router via Ethernet cable, so make sure you have a spare port on your router/switch. My router and switches are all the way on the other side of the house from the garage, but I have absolutely no issues with connectivity. The only connectivity issue I have is with the Homelink in my 2011 Hyundai Sonata. I checked the Homelink website prior to ordering this opener, and found that this model was one of very few that didn’t have a warning that a repeater may be required. Well, when I called after attempting to program my car to the opener, I found out that I do need a repeater. I only had to pay a few dollars S&H and wait 5-7 business days to get the repeater, but it seems that very few cars will work without one. The repeater will not work when the power goes out, but the keypad still works so you don’t have to keep an extra remote in the car. And I attached my internet gateway to the same UPS that powers my router and modem, so I can still open (though not close) the door with the app when the power is out. Overall, it is a great opener that is really quiet and has a ton of great features that make life even easier, at least once you get it all installed and working properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Install (Replacement Unit) Purchased this unit yesterday after my previous battery back-up opener stopped charging the battery. Rather than spending the money for a very expensive computer board I decided to purchase another unit. This is an upgraded version of my previous opener. It was a perfect fit and was able to just remove the belt from the old opener, removed the 2 bolts holding the track to the unit and 2 bolts that secured the unit to the brackets. Took me about 75 minutes total install time. This unit is very quiet and cant be heard in the house or especially the living area above the garage. Remotes are preprogrammed and I programmed 2 other units right from the wall control. Setting up the MyQ only took a few minutes and connecting to the app was easy.
