I didn't know when I purchased this online that it had to be wired to the board of the opener therefore I had to get an electrician to install it. Luckily I didn't have to pay for that otherwise I might have exchanged it for one that just gets plugged into the outlet and the opener plugs into the surge protector. If it said it has to be wired in the description I must have missed that part. I wanted to get the Chamberlain because I trust this brand and knew it would be compatible with my Chamberlain opener without the possibility of voiding my warranty. It also was the best priced among all online retailers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DR Simple, but intelligently designed
More than a typical surge suppressor for the power line feeding your device. Also protects against surges coming from the remote sensors; like from a lightning strike hitting one of them. That makes it a little more complicated to wire up, but nothing too strenuous. I also appreciate the green LED indicator. If the unit has been "sacrificed" by a hit, the LED goes out and you know you're no longer protected - time to replace. Very compact unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ECK Very satisfied!
I have had the product for about 18 months now and am very happy with it. We live in Texas and get quite a few thunderstorms. I never have to worry about my garage door openers getting fried from a lightening strike. These surge protectors are awesome! My brother in law is getting ready to put in new openers and he too is ordering these surge protectors!

a power surge in my home destroyed the circuit board in my garage door opener. the circuit board cost over $100. fortunately my opener was still under its two year parts warranty. hopefully it never happens again with the added protection of the surge protector.

So far we've had a couple of power outages in the area because of lightning and my garage door opener is holding up. I would recommendthis product for everyone who lives in the area where it's always raining and lightning, this product is a must. I didn't know they made surge protector for garage door opener until I replace my garage door opener over a month ago because the lightning hit the transformer in my neighborhood. I wished I had known I would have saved about $300.00.
By the way, my son installed it in 1 minute.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandyHal a REAL best option to replacement
this device will save money... Home Depot was less costly than other list prices and free shipping to the store only took 3 days. Installation was a snap.... no additional wiring. After having to replace one motherboard from an incidental lightening storm, the savings against possible future events is great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeCap Works excellent... as described.
While living in Florida is so nice, we have more than our fair share of lightning. This product works as described. I've never had an issue with my opener for as long as it was installed. Installation is as easy as plugging it in. Recommended! You could buy a surge protector in other stores, but this is made especially for a garage door, so you wont have wires hanging or other issues. Nice!
