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.

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.

I am trying to get the quietest opener, which model should I get? Does the higher horse power the quieter motor?
Asked by: Ken
If your track is smooth with no binding point in door motion the HP is not a factor in that the the springs make the door balanced. (you can open a very heavy door by hand ). If there are 'binding points' the higher HP will power through these with less, or no, 'Jerking' .

Customer Reviews

1-1/4 HP Smartphone-Controlled Ultra-Quiet & Strong Belt Drive Garage Door Opener w/Battery Backup & MAX Lifting Power is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 838.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would recommend if you enjoy working on garage door openers as your hobby and enjoy weekly chat... I would recommend if you enjoy working on garage door openers as your hobby and enjoy weekly chats with customer service representatives. Otherwise I'd steer clear. I bought this to install on an 8 foot garage door. It worked great for about 8 months but then it started having trouble opening and closing the door. It started by slowing down significantly, even with the door detached from the opener. A couple of weeks later it completely stopped moving and would display several different error codes ranging from "Battery replacement suggested", "Motor control error", "Excessive force detected" along with beeping every 30 seconds. I contacted Home Depot who I purchased and ordered installation through and they told me I had to contact the manufacturer for warranty concerns. Chamberlain sent me a new logic board to replace which wasn't that difficult but it did not solve any of the problems I was experiencing. They then told me it was likely the motor that needed replacing and are now sending me a new motor and battery. I asked if they would send someone to do the replacement but they said they only warranty parts and I would have to pay out of pocket to have replaced or do it myself. I contacted the contractor that did the installation and they refused to do the replacement as well because they only warranty their initial installation, not part replacements. This is one of the most expensive residential openers you can buy and even though I didn't need one this powerful I bought it for the lifetime warranty on the motor which I never expected to need. If I knew using the warranty meant spending more than a month without a working opener and several hours replacing nearly every major component of the opener myself I would have bought one of the cheap ones and just replaced the opener when it died.

I did the installation myself. We have a segmented door that pulls up on a track. Pretty common if you don't have a one piece door. The old opener was a 1/2 HP chain drive unit. I was hoping I could make most of the brackets work on the new opener but that was just asking too much. In the end I had to replace the bracket on the header over the door with one supplied with the kit. My garage is finished and there are hanging brackets for the motor unit that are attached to structure and dry walled in. I didn't want to move them and the new motor unit didn't line up to the old brackets. I got a couple of pieces of aluminum plate and drilled holes to make an adapter plate. I reused the wiring for the door sensors and the remote button pad. With all that, the entire installation probably took me 2 hours to do. It could have been done in less time but I was doing a retrofit. The opener itself is packed with features. The best one is the in-garage control panel that has the open button also allows you to add new remotes. A big improvement from climbing a ladder to push a button on the motor unit. There is an app for it for smart phones that allows you to open the door remotely and look to see if the door is closed (cuts down on wondering if I really closed the door when I left). There is a motion sensor that turns on the light in the unit when you enter the garage. And battery for those days when the electric company just can't be bothered to deliver a fresh load of electrons. The remotes have a good range (50'-100') compared to our old opener the we had to drive right up to the door and try 3 times to get it to open. There is suppose to be something to allow you to remote home automation lights but I haven't fiddled with that yet. The instructions are fairly good. Luckily there isn't too much to assemble and if you stare at the pictures long enough it will make sense. Operation is very quiet compared to our old chain drive unit. We kind of miss the old door's being so loud everyone in the house knew it was being opened, but we don't miss it much.

I have installed 4 openers before this one over the last 50 years. Instructions were clear, assembly easy, and physical install was even easier for an opener that I was installing solo on a 16'X7' steel door. I can see where the novice or inexperienced might find this a challenge, especially if the right tools and technique are lacking. It is extremely quiet and the only sound is from the door itself. Remotes have great range and the software interface with my network is perfect. I always know the status of the door, even shows history of opens and closes. The backup battery works perfectly for those times that there is a power outage. The only complaint is that the track does not have a channel to run the wires from the safety sensors. My last opener (Craftsman 1/2hp screw) had a channel in the rail which made it a visually clean install. I used a PVC pipe to run adjacent to the track. If I get another idea I will implement it.

Poor support with this company when a warranty claim is needed. The MyQ Wi-Fi has failed in my unit. I have been trying now for 8 days to get this unit serviced or replaced and going thru endless hoops trying to have my device serviced. All I keep hearing is that the home router is bad, how can that be when 12 other devices are connected and working (Nest, Ring, AppleTV, etc.) This unit was purchased back in October so I know that the MyQ did work and when it did work it worked excellent. But after the last few days of trying to get support I can not recommend this product to anyone. I have been treated so poorly that this is the first review I have ever written on a product. So when I tell you to use caution when considering this product- please take it and look at another brand with Wi-Fi options.

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.

You can NOT open the door a few inches and hold it there. The door wants to close every time. After a few attempts the screen shows error. My old screw type opener allowed me to open the door and stop it anywhere. It did not close until I hit the button again. Huge flaw in what could be fantastic opener.

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 3 out of 5 by from myQ disappointing money grab I needed a garage door opener with more power to handle my heavy door, and am happy with this unit from that perspective. I didn't buy it for the wifi connectivity but it is disappointing - the options for operating the garage door from another device are to 1. login to the myQ app repeatedly every time you want to open/close or 2. pay a monthly subscription fee to connect it to 3rd party apps that actually perform automation tasks. $1 per month to open my garage door? I thought thats what the $250 was supposed to cover. I like option 3 best: tape a remote to the back of my smartphone. Don't advertise products with features that don't come with the product...having to pay a separate fee for them.
