Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Huge Flaw The opener itself is great. It is extremely quiet and looks good. However, it is not compatible with most vehicles built in garage door openers. My vehicle from 2012 does not work with this opener without buying extra parts for my car, because the vehicle is already 2 generations behind. I understand the need for security, but updating the security system so fast is frustrating for owners. It is a great opener, but is extremely frustrating to actually use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Opener - Poor User Guide I love the quiet operation of the 8550WL belt drive with DC. My wife loves the sensor lighting when she uses the garage refrigerator. I like being able to open and close my garage doors with my smart phone and being able to monitor the doors from far away. I don't need to carry a remote control in the car any more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Garage Door Opener. Terrible documentation. I have spent hours looking for the diagram of the garage door ‘learn’ button and how to be sure it doesn’t destroy the current settings. No such manual exists. Also tried programming the bridge for it, so I could use Apple apps. Had to return it because no documentation. It would have had 4 stars with decent paperwork.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Purchased two of these with hurricane door installation. After hurricane Irma power was out and our doors still opened. Surprised how quiet they are. App is nice too. Forgot to close a door and was able to check on it and close it 16 miles away.
