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.

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.

Will the door close when the "Enter" button on the remote key pad is pressed?

I had a Liftmaster opener at my last house, and got all of the accessories to make it a MyQ accessible door. One of the things I really liked about it, was when I had a contractor or service person go to the house, I could let them in with the MyQ app, but they could close the door behind themselves. All they had to do was simply press the "Enter" button on the keypad, and it closed. It wouldn't reopen without the code or the app, but they could close it when they left. I absolutely loved that feature. Will this system do the same thing?
Asked by: JWilliams
JWill, Yes the remote keypad will do exactly what you are asking. Just hit enter and the garage door will close without opening until the code is entered or the button is depressed on the keyfob or wall switch.

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 714.

Liftmaster, owners of Chamberlain now feel it is just fine to charge you a monthly fee to open and close a garage door remotely through Google and IFTTT. Note that it doesn't matter what you paid for the device, they just want to charge you to use it. Liftmaster gets all the revenue. I bought this opener expecting to use it with home automation. Now, I've been railroaded by some stupid marketing genius. Caveat Emptor

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.

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 1 out of 5 by from Terriable customer service Bought this garage door opener from Home Depot . Could not get It to connect the myq for our devices. Called chamberlain technical support . The first time I couldn't understand the rep cuz of his accent . The 2nd time I called I talk to a woman and 45 min later they said my router has to be a 2.4 only . I have a 5.0 from my cable provider. So I'm unable to use the myq. So after paying $268 for the opener cuz we wanted the myq , then paid a company to install the opener I should have gone with the cheaper 1. I can return it but they will not reimburse me for the installation even though it never said anything about only compatible with a 2.4 router. Complete waste of time and money. I had to leave 1 star ,they don't even deserve that

They will not send someone to repair it. They offered to send a replacement part that I will have to install myself. A week later the part is still not here. I have called Chamberlain twice, had to wait on hold for 1/2 hour both times. I responded to an email from Chamberlain that was rejected as having an invalid address. I sent a message to company support that has not been responded to. I replied to an another email from Chamberlain that was not replied to. Simply put, they make a defective product and have poor customer support.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Monthly Subscription for Full Use Great garage door opener, but having to pay a monthly subscription to integrate with services like Google Home and/or IFTTT is unacceptable. We already pay a premium for the hardware and technology with the assumption that it will integrate into our existing smart home setup like every other device on the market. I understand there are additional expenses involved in supporting integrations, but that's why we pay a premium for the product in the first place. Ongoing monthly subscriptions for full use of the product you already purchased at a premium is a deal breaker.
