The Genie Signature Series Max Performance 6172H-B wall mounted smart garage door opener eliminates the traditional rail design. This Genie wall mount garage door opener features the Aladdin Connect smart home control and works with Alexa and Google Assistant, and it includes an integrated battery backup.

The Signature Series Max Performance 6172H-B wall mount garage door opener easily attaches directly to the garage door's spring tube mounted high and to the side of the garage door. This design opens the space above where cars would park in your garage.

    Great openers!
    Super impressed with the ease of install and programming. Ive installed 2 of these side by side for a super clean look. I have not utilized the wifi capabilities yet but expect them to work just as well. Only minor complaint is the range of the openers in my vehicles since these were utilized in a pole barn with 2 layers of steel.

    Very quiet, compact direct drive opener
    Replaced an older L***M****r with typical stripped plastic gears failure. Wanted something less noisy, since garage is below our LR.. every time door opened, could feel & hear it in the LR above. So, didn't want another chain drive type: Considered going to belt drive until I saw this direct drive model. After researching the direct drive models available, went with Genie. I have a property maint. business, & been in residential construction 36 yrs. I've seen numerous problems with the other main brand opener (L-M), so was interested in what else was available. I've not seen any real issues with Genie, although they don't seem to be as popular as the competition in my area. Nonetheless, I liked the design and specs on this unit, so ordered it from the HD. This model is relatively simple to install, if you have installed openers before. Frankly, it was harder taking down the old L-M opener and track (& messy!) than installing the new Genie. Pay close attention to the directions (which could be more clearly & coherently written). Be sure you have adequate side and headroom for the opener unit, which attaches directly to the door drum shaft (NOT for use with linear tension spring doors). You will also need to have a standard 120v receptacle installed within 5 ft of the opener, if no receptacle is available. As most openers are ceiling mounted, the receptacle for it it generally located 10-12ft back from the door, in the ceiling. This was the case for my installation as well. I had to run conduit and a new receptacle from the breaker panel in the garage to the opener, so keep that in mind when planning an installation. I have installed numerous other openers, so this was not difficult - although some aspects were completely new since it is a direct shaft drive design. This model includes an electric deadbolt lock that mounts to the garage door track rail to prevent forced entry. It requires a bit more effort (drilling for bolts), but nothing major. Installing the electric (safety) eyes was a snap. Ran the wiring to the main unit, connected the deadbolt lock, and tightened down the shaft collar pinch bolts. Fired it up without issue. Programming the unit to work with the phone app was about the only difficulty I ran into. The app refused to work (programming WiFi access was not as simple as it appeared either, but I've seen worse). Ended up using a 2nd phone to complete the app registration and installation. Once set up and installed, the opener worked perfectly - and FAR FAR quieter than anything I've heard yet. It's so quiet, we don't hear (or feel) it in the room above the garage! This unit has a soft-start and stop design, so there is no initial big jolt as the motor takes out slack, or slams the door shut. Just smooth as silk!! I like the direct drive method - no messy chain, no belt to wear out (or replace), and no big opener hogging the middle of the ceiling along with a chain or belt track. Even better, this model has a battery included so the unit works in event of a power failure. That's a big plus, and to me well worth the additional cost. Overall, I am well pleased with this unit after about 10 weeks in use. Be aware that in case of power failure, when running only on internal battery power, the door opener operates about half normal speed... not a major issue - just something to note. I have some minor reservations about the tension guide rod sleeves (nylon cable clamps essentially), as to longevity. Nylon tends to become brittle with age and heat, so these will probably need replacing at some point in the future. Luckily, these are standard inexpensive hardware store items, easily and quickly replaced - so no big deal. Otherwise, this door opener is excellent. Range on the remote (fob) is best I've seen - far better than others I have/had. The remote fob is rather small, and there is little or no tactile feel upon pressing the buttons, so that's one thing I'd say could be improved. I'll probably add other remotes anyway. I added the Genie external remote keypad opener with this unit, which was simple and quick. This is by far the best garage door opener I've installed, owned, or maintained yet.. so, if it holds up over time, I will be extremely pleased. As my other L-M old openers fail, I will be replacing them with this excellent Genie model.

      Great Opener
      Had this opener installed along with a new garage door by Mid Illini doors. Great unit; quiet works great. Battery back up is especially nice if there is a power outage. It replaced an Overhead Door traditional unit that just wasn't getting the job done anymore.

        works great
        That’s the easiest garage door opener I have ever installed. Easy to setup. I ride a motorcycle and needed an easy way to open and close my shop/ garage door via my phone which is connected to my bike. I can open or close my door and don’t have to worry about being in range because it uses the internet to control it. The install was very easy. The internet setup was very easy to do. Highly recommend

          Unwound cables
          This is my 2nd genie aladin product. App works good. Opener is quiet and functions as it should….now. I put this on a 12’x12’ insulated overhead door on my barn. After installing and setting limits, when putting the door down from the fulling open position, the shaft would start to spin and unwind the cables and create a mess before the door would move. Genie customer service was an absolute joke. (Which is the reason for 2 stars) Had to get spring pushers and pitch the horizontal track.
