Rated 5 out of 5 by from 21st Century Garage Door Opener I had two of these units installed at the same time, and after 4 months I couldn’t be more satisfied with the units, the quietness, and the ease of use, both on site, and remotely. The remote notification is a real benefit, and the ability to open and close either, or both garage doors from anywhere has been extreme useful. I have had several friends purchase these units after having seen mine in operation, and they are thoroughly satisfied as I am. The battery back up is a God send. When the power went out I was able to open and close my garage doors numerous times before the power came back on, and not once did the doors not open or close. Now that’s a convenience, and the door locks are a secure feeling. When they lock, there’s no opening the door from the outside. The “pros” far exceed any “cons”, but there are some minor “cons”. There are no “cons” with the installation, however, when it comes to WiFi connections, and remote openers set up, there in lies the “cons”. The best thing to do is make sure you have a good WiFi/router connection, and the units are connecting, then call customer support and have them walk you through the set up. Customer Support, is by far the best I’ve dealt with in the consumer world. They are patient, and take all the time needed to make sure everything is working properly, and the customer is comfortable with the operation. Then, they continue to follow up to be sure everything is correct. The WiFi connecting can be problematic, but not the end of the world. What is really an issues is connecting the openers to your home link in your vehicles. Even with a remote homelink systems option, none of my vehicles would connect. I wasn’t about to throw the baby out with the bath water, so I just use the remotes that came with garage door unit. The age of my vehicle may the reason ( my newest is a 2013), but when I get a newer car, the home link may work with that car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liftmaster 8500W I just purchased a set of liftmaster 8500W from weshipgarageparts-com and would like to say the order arrived in a very timely manner. I purchased on a Monday and by Wednesday it was delivered to my home. On Sunday I installed the first of the garage openers from the set and took my time on a the installation for a flawless install and clean installation. I am very impressed with the units quietness and craftsmanship of unit. I like the motion sensor activated overhead light and non-existent overhead drive rail and motor unit is a very welcome feature set that allows for maximum clearance in the event you want to install a garage door lift. This unit replaces a worn out linear unit and I am very glad to have the liftmaster 8500W as a replacement. I would highly recommend this unit to any homeowner looking for a cleaner more advanced installation of a garage door opener. Personally this is the way all garage door openers should be put together.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Opener but Sub-Par Tech First of all as an opener this little thing is pretty amazing. It’s super quiet and very good looking. My only grouch is that it has a hub built in but that hub does not support Apple’s HomeKit. Users should not need to buy a bridge just to get HomeKit support when they have already bought one of highest end product. I wish LiftMaster has a way to upgrade their software to support Apple’s HomeKit in the future. Also, I found the App to not be very good. Things like TTC can’t be programmed from the App which just seems silly. I was also unable to get HomeLink to work with my 2012 Subaru Forrester despite everything I read seeming to suggest that it should work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best garage door opener I was in dire need of a new garage door opener since mine broke so I did my research and came across the liftmaster 8500W. I was specifically looking for an opener with wi-fi capabilities and my old opener was a wall mount so I decided on the 8500W. It comes with the opener and a back-up battery, 1 LED wall mount display, 1 LED overhead light, 1 track lock and 1 car remote. Let me first say how awesome this opener is. It's so quiet and powerful. The LED light is very bright and it automatically comes on when you enter the garage. The track lock automatically deploys when the door is closed so it gives you added security. So after the 2 hour installation I was dreading hooking this up to Wi-fi and downloading the Liftmaster MyQ app. Within 5 minutes I was totally hooked up and was able to control everything from my phone. Impressive Liftmaster!! After that I had to pair my homelink in my truck to the opener and 2 minutes later it was done with no hiccups. I am so glad I chose this opener and I love the added space by choosing a wall mount over the belt drive. Go ahead and buy the 8500W. You won't be disappointed!
