LiftMaster 8500W Wall Mount Wi-Fi® Residential Garage Door Opener Wins Parade of Products Award at Pacific Coast Builders Conference


Oak Brook, IL, June 20, 2018LiftMaster®, the number one brand of professionally installed garage door openers and access solutions, is pleased to announce that the 8500W DC Battery Backup Wall Mount Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener received a Parade of Products Award at the Pacific Coast Builders Conference (PCBC). The Parade of Products Award recognizes the best residential building products at the show, honoring outstanding achievements in innovation. Stop by the LiftMaster booth #1265 to get a demonstration of the 8500W.

An innovator in garage door opener technology, LiftMaster is always evolving to address homeowners’ sophisticated lifestyles. The 8500W Garage Door Opener’s space-saving design mounts alongside the garage door, freeing up the garage ceiling and inspiring homeowners to get creative with how they use the space in their garage. Further helping homeowner’s tap into their garage’s full potential, the 8500W is powered by myQ technology that allows users to open and close their garage door from anywhere, receive alerts if it’s left open and link to other smart home devices. LiftMaster’s reliable and advanced garage door opener technology solutions has made it a go-to source for many contractors and builders.

“Our reputation is built on quality, which is why we showcase LiftMaster Garage Door Openers in our design center. Year over year we have found them to be the most reliable garage door opener in the market,” said Dennis Webb, Vice President of Operations for Fulton Homes, a family-owned and operated homebuilder in Arizona. “Also, LiftMaster is constantly evolving its products to offer superior functionality that helps us differentiate ourselves from other homebuilders. A number of our homebuyers have been upgrading to the LiftMaster 8500W not only because it frees up garage ceiling space for storage, but it’s also very quiet.”

A recent LiftMaster Survey found that 73 percent of homeowners identify noise as a key consideration when selecting home devices/appliances. The LiftMaster 8500W is powered by a high-performance DC motor that provides smooth operation and, when combined with the wall-mount design, minimizes noise and vibrations through the ceiling and interior walls. Additionally, the LiftMaster 8500W features an integrated battery backup system, ensuring continued operation during a power loss. Homeowners will also appreciate the included LED Light (Model 827LM), which can be placed anywhere in the garage and controlled with myQ technology.

“We are honored that LiftMaster 8500W has been selected as one of this year’s PCBC best new product,” said John Villanueva, Vice President and General Manager, Residential Access Solutions for LiftMaster. “Launched in January 2018, the LiftMaster 8500W Wall Mount Garage Door Opener is quickly becoming a must-have smart home product that is inspiring homeowners to get creative with how they use the space in their garage.”

The 8500W Garage Door Opener will be one of six LiftMaster products that will be featured in the LiftMaster booth #1265 at the Pacific Coast Builders Conference June 27 – 28, 2018 in San Francisco. LiftMaster will also be showcasing its new WLED Garage Door Opener with Corner to Corner Lighting™ that illuminates the entire garage with daylight-like lighting. LiftMaster’s new Connected Access Portal, High Capacity (CAPXL) telephone entry system, powered by LiftMaster Cloud™, will also be demonstrated in the booth showcasing its smart, expandable, cloud-based solution that lets community managers control multiple entry points and manage several communities from a single dashboard.
