Are two remotes and wireless keypad included in the price listed or do I have to buy separately? When I went to purchase this opener on your website remotes and key pad came up as accessories I could purchase separately.
Asked by: Bob
Yes, they are included with the unit. If missing you need to contact Home Depot.

can led lights be used instead of the incandesent bulbs

Asked by: bruttus
Depends. I just had mine installed-runs smooth, quiet, until the lights I installed ( EcoSmart 800 lumen ) came on. Then nada, zip, door stillness. None of the remotes or the keypad or the HomeLink in the car operated the door. Then back to the Depot to buy 73w bulbs with the halogen capsules. Everything now works perfectly. I didn't get CFLs because I am too impatient to wait for then to warm up to full brightness and their bases can get too hot. Would have been nice to not have to burn so much electricity and have the longevity of LED.

Is it normal for the door to pick up speed the last two feet and almost slam down?

Asked by: Alpnglo
No. That's not normal. I would disconnect the opener (from the disconnect mechanism) and try to lift and lower the door by hand. If you're able to lift and lower it smoothly all the way without the sudden pull you're describing at the end of the travel, then you likely have a defective door opener. If you feel a shift in the door load near the end when closing it manually, you may have mis-adjusted springs or a bad spring on your door which will cause a load imbalance and can damage the opener. If that's the case, you should get those checked by a garage door tech. There's a guy in our area that replaces the springs for about $100 for one and $170 to do both. Given how dangerous it is to do yourself, it's a good deal.

I have an existing Genie garage door opener in place and looking to upgrade. Would I be able to reuse the railing I already have in place?
Asked by: Frankie
Regarding the LED bulb issue... I put LED bulbs in my genie opener and immediately lost signal to my wall remote. Additionally, my three car remotes became hit or miss. I put the normal lights back in and everything works fine. I would stray from the LED's due to signal issues.

1-1/4 HP Equivalent Ultra-Quiet Belt Drive Smart Garage Door Opener with Battery Backup is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 969.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super quite easy to install Love how quiet the opener is. I can barely hear it lift the door. Love the connectability and ability to use my smart phone to control the doors. The motion sensing light switches mean I can walk in the garage without having to worry about turning a light on. The PROBLEM: apparently they changed openers so Homelink (the opener built into cars) in late 2013 so you need to either use the remotes that come with the opener or you need to get the bridge to use the built in car remote. They could at least put that in the manual so you don't spend an hour trying to set it up and then a 10 minute phone call to find out you need an additional item.

Only one problem thought, the Home Link setup requires that you put in the SN of the unit....Well, ours had a atypical SN and therefore, Home Link system would not recognize the unit. When contacting Chamberlain I explained the situation and was refereed back to the manual page 32 which fully explains the setup process, so they say. Well, the setup still calls for the SN to set it up. What it doesn't say, is if you have an atypical SN and its accepted where do you go from here????? My question back to Chamberlain was "Whats the atypical SN doing on my unit and how do we fix the problem....still waiting for a response.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy This was a huge upgrade from my loud, Genie screw drive. The install and configuration took about half a day. The belt drive is so quiet that it's a surprise when someone walks into the house. The phone app is a nice feature that allows you to monitor and control the door. We also like the motion detector that turns on the lights and battery backup for power outages. As with other reviews, we did have an issue with the Homelink button not working with a 2009 vehicle. I had to order the Homelink Repeater Kit which is only $7 if you call Chamberlain directly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product was missing a part and the circuit board was unresponsive. I ordered the opener and used the Home Depot installation service. I had not opened the box at all (was told by the installer not to do so). When installed, the product was missing the door opener button. When the installer tried to temporarily hook up the system to our old button, the circuit board gave no response. He told me that I would need to call and get a replacement circuit board and new button. It seems likely that someone had returned this unit for a faulty button/board and it was simply repackaged and placed into inventory for the next person to deal with (which would be me). The installer was very nice and easy to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't wait for my other opener to go out so I can have 2... I bought this as a replacement for a 14 year old opener. I wasn't sure about spending extra on the Wifi - but am VERY glad that I did. the unit was as easy to install as any opener... The best feature is the ability to set alerts and receive text +/or email alerts based on your criteria. ie - I set one alert for any time the door is opened between midnight and 6 am (unusual activity) - and another if the door is left open more than 10 minutes (at which point it will close - AND - send me a note)... Pros: * Very quiet opening and closing. * Wifi was easy to hook up and both the App and Alerts are very useful. * Good lights, motion sensor is handy. * Backup Battery CONS: * NONE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!! I wish I would have bought this garage door opener sooner. It's extremely quiet and has the ability to do multiple functions. The only downfall is the wifi feature. It requires you to turn on the wifi on the garage door opener but the website where you have to register the product stops responding if you're linked up and trying to access the site through your wifi network. I turned off the wifi and now the site is accessible but I can't link the device. I contacted chamberlain and was told the wifi must be on in order to register the device. It still won't allow me to connect. Look up the issue on YouTube and some people will describe the same problem I'm having.

Chamberlain's customer service is by far the worst I have ever experienced. They literally do not care about their customers after they have their money. The web connected app is terrible, with false notifications, failed opens and closes and a horrible outdated design that is difficult to navigate. They are now charging a fee to access your opener from sources other than their own app. There's a monthly fee for access from google home or ifttt which no other company has ever been greedy enough to charge for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WD1000WF is a well designed instrument! Instructions were very clear. They made special effort to explain the spring activated trolley attachment to tighten the belt. Had factory lubrication on the main gear sprocket that the belt ran around, but curiously in the maintenance instructions of the opener did not indicate any further grease was necessary. Had trouble putting the three screws in the gear cover - they did not fit well. Set up was easy, especially the sensors - they have a wide tolerance to aligning them. Guessed my alignment of them on my first try! Internet set up was easy, remotes easy to program. DC motor is incredible - slow moving of the door at the beginning and end of cycle! You will never get that out of an AC motor! DC motor does have brushes, but has a lifetime warranty as well as the belt! Came with all batteries. My wife loved how quiet it was. Aside from my bodily aches and pains it was a trouble free installation. Most of my work was to take down the old Stanley opener and prepare the way for the new one.
