Additional Super Tech Features You Should Know
This LiftMaster opener has an additional safety feature that is slightly different than all the other openers that The Garage Door Company exclusively offers. Connected with the MyQ app, camera recording can be utilized if your garage is detached from your home, or you would simply like the extra piece of mind.
The camera recording will also be activated if you set up Amazon Key. As an Amazon Prime customer, Amazon Key is a delivery service that allows authorized shippers for in-home and in-car delivery during specified times. This is to prevent packages from being stolen, and is beneficial for people who are away at work or on vacation. When you sign up with Amazon Key, it will prompt you to buy a smart door lock kit, and Amazon will install it for free. The LiftMaster 87504-267 Garage Door Opener is compatible with this service, and for a delivery, the camera recording activates through motion sensing and records the entire visit. Amazon website has more information about Key, and how a delivery driver uses Amazon Key.
You can utilize the camera feature from your smartphone, and either watch something live or view a recorded video clip. This smart garage door opener offers motion detection with a LED lighting system allowing you to monitor who’s in your garage.
Chain Drive Garage Door Opener
A chain drive garage door opener is the most widely available and affordable type of garage door opener. Like most overhead garage door openers, a chain drive garage door opener operates on a rail and trolley. As the name suggests, a chain drive garage door opener operates on a metal chain. Because of this construction, chain drive openers tend to be noisier and have a more involved maintenance routine. However, the new chain drive LiftMaster model has a much quieter function than its predecessors.
With chain drive garage door openers, problems arise with broken sprockets and stripped gears. Sprockets carry the stress of the garage door weight and may need to be replaced due to wear. If you regularly follow through with garage door maintenance, your opener should stay in good shape and last a long time.
LiftMaster 87802 Garage Door Opener
This model stands out from the exclusive LiftMaster collection The Garage Door Company has to offer for how much weight it can lift. Calling all glass, wood, and steel garage door owners! The heavier garage doors need this heavy-duty chain drive opener to open and close with ease. There is also a backup battery control if there is ever a power outage. This chain-drive LiftMaster opener will last a longer amount of time due to it’s simplistic mechanical parts.
For owners with a larger garage, commercial body shop, or free-standing garage this garage door opener has a 360° light ring with 2,000 lumens of long-lasting LED light built in for good measure.
Wall Mount Garage Door Opener
The alternative to overhead door openers! The wall mount garage door opener, is also known as a jackshaft garage door opener, or side mount garage door opener. Modern garage door openers have been trending towards wall mount openers like the LiftMaster 8500W Garage Door Opener. Instead of operating overhead, a wall mount garage door opener installs beside the garage door, so it frees up ceiling space. This is also great for heavy doors because it attaches directly to the garage door springs. This makes a wall mount garage door opener stronger and more durable.
A wall mount opener also invites more storage space for your garage area since it operates out of the way of any overhead carriers. If you have a very low or very high ceiling that reaches 10 feet or more, a wall mount opener is left to be your only option.
LiftMaster 8500W Garage Door Opener
