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.

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.

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 912.
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.

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.

I could have installed this myself, but I got the Home Depot experts/contractors to install it for me. Glad I did. I am now on my 4th garage door opener in 19 years. I first started with a Craftsman (12 years) then a Direct Drive ( 3 years). A Ryobi with all the attachments ( 1 week. Don't waste your time or money... Needless to say returned that POS). 1st time with a Chamberlain. By far the best and most features of any brand I've had in the past. Web and battery backup is top notch! This unit is quiet and opens/closes quickly. The installer told me that the only garage door is better than this one is a Lift Master. Lift Master makes Chamberlain. I think this unit is second to none. It even has a sensor at the main control pad to turn on the garage door opener lights automatically when I open my back door going into the garage. I don't even have to touch anything to turn on the lights inside a dark garage. Hail ( better than saying....ell) the lights are on a timer, so it will turn off. I love that I can open or close the door on my smartphone. I can tell if the door is either opened or closed on my phone as well. You won't be sorry if you buy this opener.

After decades of using either Genie or Overhead Doors, I needed a new opener, so decided on this Chamberlain (based on the many features advertised). Wow, I haven't been disappointed. It was extremely easy to put together and install - took exactly 2 hours for me, by myself, to take down my old opener, put together the new Chamberlain, and get it mounted in place. It then took another hour to set up the wifi, app, outdoor wireless remote (took 30 seconds at most). I did make the mistake of trying to use the existing safety sensors from my old opener. SUGGESTION: DON'T DO THIS! I hooked up the existing wires, and the garage door wouldn't close. After trying to re-connect wires, etc, it still wouldn't work. I had to remove the old, and install the new. Took less time than trying to get the old one to work! I highly recommend this opener.

I did have it professionally installed with metal rollers replaced. It is mind blowing the sound level difference this unit makes. Before you use to hear the person coming into the garage from anywhere in the house to "Where did you come from?". There really is a considerable sound difference. There a few nice features like opening and closing the door, and monitoring the door from your phone. Great for those OCD people who forget to close the door and checking on when people come in and go throughout the day. I bought it mainly for the belt drive and battery backup but I do wish it came cheaper with a smaller HP drive. I think they do this purposely to make you purchase their "expensive model". This unit has almost everything you need it. With that being said the previous remotes may not be compatible. Check on the website if this matter to you. Due to space constraints I had to keep the old brackets for reversing sensors.

The motor is quiet. So first off, it meets the basic requirements. However, the opener is supposed to link with Homelink systems in your car. It did for one of my cars but not the other. Both are Toyota's. I had to purchase a converter kit for $24.99 in order for the Homelink system to work. That was disappointing. Also, according to the information supplied once the item was purchased (not before) the backup battery is only expected to last one to two years. This was a second disappointment.

The biggest problem I have though is that I paid for it to be installed but could not get a hold of the company that does the install. I talked to a person at the store and they gave me the number of another company that they use. The install went good but I have had problems with the openers in all of our cars from the beginning. We have to push it 5 to 10 times and still may not close and we have to use the app on my phone or get out and push the code. I called the installer and they said since I bought it myself I had to call the store because they only warantied the install. I called the store and they said since it wasn't their primary installer they wouldn't cover it and I need to call Chamberlain. I called Chamberlain and they said it was probably the light bulbs. I have tried several bulbs and nothing has changed. They said if I wanted to take it to the store they would replace it but I had to take it down myself. There was a reason I paid for the install. Works fine with the phone app but not all of the family has the app. I thought spending extra money I would get a better opener. Lesson learned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Door Opener We chose the 1 1/4 HP as an upgrade to out previous lift master 1/3 HP chain drive. This unit is so much quieter, and we didn't use any rubber isolators between the unit and the garage ceiling. We wanted a battery backup and a unit with built in wi-fi (but we are a bit reluctant to set this up yet until we are satisfied with security protection.) Very easy to install - only had to move the ceiling brackets a couple of inches. We had a Chamberlain Clicker remote (the kind with dip switches and a program button inside) and it was very easy to program. We could have used to remotes that came with the unit, but our community gate system was already programmed to the dip switches on the old remotes so we needed to keep using these. This was achieved using the yellow learn button inside the new opener along with the Clicker remote instructions. Very easy process. About 2 minutess to complete. Took my time with the install - about 4-5 hours (Solo, DIY). Love the belt drive and everything about this unit so far.
