If you were lucky enough to attend this year’s International Builders’ Show, you were wowed by all the new innovations on display. One of the most popular show stoppers was found in the LiftMaster exhibit where home builders were inspired by the capabilities of the Model 8500 Wall-Mount Residential Opener.

It is only natural that LiftMaster showcase this increasingly popular opener, which mounts on the side of the garage door, not on the ceiling overhead, freeing up ceiling space for storage, or just for a clean interior appearance. The attendee excitement surrounding the opener was overwhelming. They were surprised by the sleek appearance and ultra quiet operation and it truly impressed every visitor at the LiftMaster booth with more than half testing the in-booth demonstration.


The 8500 is also equipped with MyQ® Technology which enables home buyers to achieve home automation by securely monitoring and controlling their garage door opener – and houselights with Remote Light Control accessories – with their smartphone and the free MyQ app. Learn more about the LiftMaster model 8500 >
