Q:Does the belt come with the garage door opener or does a person have to buy that separately

Answer This Question

A:  I believe they use the existing device, ours was a chain, so a belt may have to be bought if one doesn't exist now.

    It's kind of weird to be excited about a garage door opener but I really was excited to open and install this. First, every thing is well packaged and all the parts are laid out well. The instructions are well written and the install was easy and intuitive. Pictographs and written instructions made the install that much easier and this was done in approximately 1 hour. I had difficulties with the app but contacted customer service and they were able to resolve it. The door opens, consistently, smoothly whether with the app, the key pad, button or opener. The app is free and there is no service to purchase. Once you have it- you have it. This is a chain drive which are notorious for being much louder than belt drives but this was not the case, particularly. Between the well written and illustrated instructions, the engineering, the app set up and operation, this is a great garage door opener for less than some are charging for the ability to use an app as an add-on to an existing system. Am I happy? You betcha!

    I've been holding off on the wifi garage door opener too long. It was time to find one and replace an older, failing unit. I have two doors but wanted to try the Beamup Sentry BU400 before I purchased two. I don't use Alexa, we are an apple homekit home so waiting for that integration but I can still operate the opener from the app on my smartphone. Anyways, installation was fairly easy (being my first time) and running the wires was simple due to an open attic space above. Pros: First, I like the door opener. It's powerful, quiet and aesthetically pleasing with the led lights and such. It fit in my existing setup and no modifications were needed. Cons: The rail setup is a bit weak. It's not like my old one, a solid piece of steel. I wish they would have allowed for the option to use the old rail system. This one snaps together and does not allow for fastening each piece together to prevent them from shaking loose. I may add self-tapping screws later. Another con I would consider is the bulky wifi controller. It lives outside of the housing which is strange, considering it's a wifi garage door. Then, paired with the opener you need 2 outlets above your door for it to operate. Then the amount of wires required is a bit much. You can see in my pictures I wire-tied them together as I am a big cable management person. Finally, I had some issues during setup connecting it to my car (tesla model 3 that has homelink) and my Liftmaster keypad. I still can not get my keypad to work, the car finally connected. Getting the wifi transmitter to connect to the phone app/my account also took 20 or so tries before it worked. In all I recommend the door opener after getting through my issues. It's quiet, powerful and more current to the technology, I just wish the wifi was built into the unit, the amount of wires was less AND the rail system was a bit stronger. We will see how it holds up.

    This is a very quiet garage door opener, while it is chain driven it is quieter than most chain drives. I like the bright light and the timer that keeps the light on while you get into the house. The instruction are pretty clear....the linking to HomeLink and the vehicles was not as easy as I hoped but it does work. The issues may be more vehicle related than the opener..I just don't know. The opener works as advertised and the physical installation was relatively easy. I wish the unit came with the remote keypad, that is something we use a lot. Overall, I recommend that opener.

    The BeamUp BU400 is a 1/2 Horsepower Door Opener. All the parts for a complete installation are included. The door opener is easy to assemble and make ready for installation. The directions are clear and concise. Pay attention to the details for an easy install. Allow about 4 hours in an empty garage to complete this task. The door operation is quiet and smooth. The integral LED lights are bright enough to light the entire garage. The motion sensing light is an added plus to this unit. The finish is smooth and clean. The added WiFi interface is a must have. This allows you to see the door status at all times from your smartphone. With the proper tools and ladders, the installation is easy. I preferred to install all the wiring, door eyes and buttons ahead of time and then installed the opener. There are times when an extra set of hands, makes this installation easier. The programming of this unit is easy and quick. Simply follow the instructions to set the door travel limits with a few button pushes. The door force is also easy to set up with an automatic feature that determines the required force. The door controller is a smart controller with a “Learn Button” for the remotes and vehicles. Follow your “Home Link” instructions for your vehicle to set this up. The electric safety eyes have indicator lights for assisting in alignment. The door button has an optional light only button and a vacation lock to set when you are away. Set up the Smart Door Controller, before installation for an easier set up. The Alexa integration works well and is a convenient feature. Nice product, nice finish, quiet and smooth operation.

    BeamUP…. Smart Garage Door Opener BU400 Sentry arrived in perfect condition and was very well packaged. This garage door opener comes equipped with a ¾ HP Heavy Duty DC motor with chain drive. I have to say I was skeptical about a chain drive as I have had a belt drive for many years simply because they have always been quieter than chain drive openers. Not this one. This is the quietest chain drive I have ever had even quieter than my old belt drive I am very happy about the lack of noise. Installation instructions were easy to follow and the Installation was simple and easy except for the controller unfortunately after 3 days of trying with our network provider to connect our WiFi to the controller (unsuccessfully) we gave up. This opener has lots of features like an integrated motion activated 3000 lumens (200 watt) LED lighting system, a smart garage door Controller (that I cannot connect to) a 3 button Remote, and a multi-function wall button. This garage door opener opens and closes my garage door with ease and I believe I will get many years of use out of it.

    Build quality low track strength for a 3/4hp is a joke. Light is always on when in sensor mode so had to disable and Alexa integration is another joke. Total waste.

    Not real satisfied, mounting brackets are junk, had to reenforce. Could not set up, had to email customer service which did help, had to take it apart and snap the motherboard in properly. Then I couldn’t get it hooked up to internet and found out that you can only use it on a 2G internet. I have had 5G for serval years. Paid $30.00 more for the internet capability. This should be told up front. Also track comes in pieces and a lot of plastic parts. Don’t see this lasting 22 years like the one I replaced. The Depot should give a credit back for false information.
