1. These new garage door openers can do more than just open and close the garage door

The new LiftMaster® 8550 and 8360 garage door openers have built-in MyQ® technology that enables you to operate the garage door or turn house lights on or off from anywhere in the world all using a smartphone or computer. This offers you a new level of home activation as opposed to an expensive, hardwired home automation system.

2. Reliable Battery Backup System is now available in a chain drive
If you're a chain drive loyalist or have heavy carriage-house or solid wood doors that may need steady performance and lifting power to open, the Battery Backup System now comes in Premium Series model 8360.

3. Security+2.0™ technology eliminates radio intereference and guards against code theft
This enhanced radio performance has twice the radio range and communicates with the garage door opener in different frequencies, virtually eliminating interference. It also uses a different code every time the remote control is used, guarding against code theft, ensuring your home, family and belongings are safe and secure.

4. Timer-to-Close feature ensures the garage door is never left open by accident
Now you can have the garage door automatically close after a pre-programmed number of minutes – ideal if your hands are full or you are unloading the car. This gives you added peace-of-mind for you and your family, ensuring the largest door to your home closes behind you. This feature requires the Motion-Detecting Control Panel with Timer-to-Close or the Smart Control Panel®. 




Battery Backup  Integrated Battery Backup 
Both openers feature a reliable integrated Battery Backup System that ensures the garage door opener, as well as the safety and security features, will continue to work, even when the power is out. That is added peace-of-mind for you and your family, as the garage door is often the main source of entry for many homeowners. And if you live in an area with frequent storms, you know how important it is to be able to access your home when you need to. And now, the Battery Backup system is also available in a chain drive in Premium Series model 8360.
