Beingone of the major brands producing electric operators for garage doors, Liftmaster offers a comprehensive range of models. The brand, which is part of Chamberlain Group, has chain drive, belt drive and screw drive openers and wall-mounted units as well. Each Liftmaster garage door opener system includes a motor unit and hardware plus a pair of safety sensors. All rails available with the openers of the brand have a single-piece design.
There is a choice between models with AC motor and ones with DC motor. AC motors have great durability while their DC counterparts make little noise and tend to consume less power. In general, when the opener is set to a standby mode, it uses 75% less power than usual. Some openers come with a motor based on P3 technology, which allows for more reliable operation and greater durability. The main horsepower options include 1/2 and 3/4 horsepower.
One of the latest technologies used in openers of the brand is MyQ. It is designed to enable the remote monitoring and control of the device. Now it can come with Wi-Fi for wireless connectivity to the internet. The opener and door are operated via a specially designed application suitable for mobile phones and tablets. It is also possible for the property owner to receive notifications on the status of the automatic door via email or as pop-ups on a mobile phone.
Security+ 2.0 is the rolling code technology of the brand. It changes the code automatically so that there is a new one every time when the opener is used. This allows the Liftmaster garage door opener to make the garage and the entire house more secure. The PosiLock technology works to monitor the system against forced opening.
