Rated 5 out of 5 by from Software feature needed I had a Liftm aster installed in July and was pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was. I downloaded the app so I could control it remotely. The missing feature that I expected was an alarm/reminder to my phone to tell me that my door has been up for x number minutes. I don't keep my app open all the time. Please talk to your software people about this upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy To Install This 8500 series Liftmaster garage door opener is the easiest opener you will ever install. I’ve had mine for a couple of months now and it works flawlessly. I also have the internet gateway module which is very easy to link up to the door, so you can monitor your door on your phone, tablet or laptop. You know when it was opened or closed and for how long. You can also remotely open or close it. The outdoor key pad also is very easy to program, and it works great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Has some issues You can only have one wired wall unit attached. I found this out after purchasing and installing several 883lm pushbutton controls for my garage/shop. I did this after Liftmaster support told me they would work. Well, they don’t. Liftmaster does not have a solution except “buy a remote”. I have a large shop with multiple people in it. I can’t ask them to all use a remote. Second issue is that when a wall unit fails, it opens your door and leaves it open. That’s a safety issue. My insurance company would cancel my policy. I will be removing the wall unit and installing a dumb button. That causes me to lose the motion detector and many features which led me to purchase the 8500. Liftmaster needs to resolve these problems before I will recommend the 8500 to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great garage door opener w/one small design flaw I woke up this morning at 6am to a text from my neighbor informing me one of my garage doors was open. Long story short, I was shocked to discover that it was due to the wall control (888LM) failing. I called customer service and spoke to a rep who was very understanding and was happy to send me a new wall control right away, no charge, despite my unit being 3yrs old. I spent less than 5min on the phone and was happy to get things squared away. Up until this point, the LiftMaster garage door system I had installed in my new construction home was great. But to learn that when the wall unit goes out, it automatically OPENS the garage door seemed ridiculous. Seems like a major design flaw that needs to be fixed and I see that plenty of others have had the same issue 2-3yr after installation. The rep also mentioned a bad batch of wall units the company was dealing with but said mine (which had a date on the back that said "10/13") wasnt part of that batch, FWIW
