Recently we posted the before and after shots from a CHI Overhead Garage door and springs installation in Austin and this is the garage door opener we installed for them at the same time. This work was done for a customer that had just completely remodeled their home and garage.
It was a 2-car garage with one 16′ x 7′ door which we installed plus it had a center mounted garage door spring that we also installed. Smartly the customer grabbed a great opener unit.
They went with a LiftMaster 8500 Elite Series which we mounted on the right side wall so it is out of the way. As you can see by the after shot the unit sits on the wall instead of being mounted overhead which has many advantages over the standard ceiling mounted garage door openers.
This unit usually gets very high marks on reviews because it is much more quiet than some of its’ counterparts not to mention it is WiFi enabled!
New LiftMaster 8500 Garage Door Opener Opener was side mounted & working great
You may be asking WiFi enabled? Yes, you read that right it is a smart device. Meaning you can download a free app with no annual activation fees and it allows you to control and monitor not only your garage door opener but your home’s lights as well.
This means you don’t have to use a remote for your opener, you can use your phone! You can also set it to send you a push notification or email about your lights and door opener which can come in handy, security-wise.
But as far as security, which is something you need to be concerned with when it comes to your garage door, this opener has you covered. The LiftMaster 8500 uses something called Security+ 2.0, which means that every time you use your remote it sends it a new code making it harder for crooks.
The 8500 also has a motion detector so you don’t have to flip a light-switch it will come on automatically and turn off when there is no more movement making is easier and safer for you.
One other feature that really makes this unit stand out among other garage openers is the power deadbolt lock. This helps to prevent criminals from forcing open your garage door giving them access to both steal from there but also to make it easy for them to get into your home itself.
Another huge selling point for the LiftMaster 8500 Elite series Garage opener is that it comes with a lifetime motor warranty plus it also comes with a 5 year parts warranty as well. So as you can see LiftMaster stands behind their work which is why we are happy to install their openers.
