1. These new garage door openers can do more than just open and close the garage door

The new LiftMaster® 8550, 8360, 8500 and 8355 garage door openers have built-in MyQ® technology that enables you to operate the garage door or turn house lights on or off from anywhere, any time – all by using a smartphone, tablet or computer. This offers you a new level of home activation as opposed to an expensive, hardwired home automation system.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The LiftMaster® Internet Gateway is only compatible with garage door opener models 8550, 8360, 8500 and 8355. These models have a yellow learn button. It is also compatible with LiftMaster® Security+2.0™ gate operators (models CSW24V, CSL24V or LA500), and lighting accessories enabled by MyQ® technology.


2. Reliable Battery Backup System is now available in a chain drive

If you're a chain drive loyalist or have heavy carriage-house or solid wood doors that may need steady performance and lifting power to open, the Battery Backup System now comes in Premium Series model 8360. And the Elite Series® Model 8500 Wall Mount Garage Door Opener has an optional Battery Backup. All you need is the battery itself (model 475LM).


3. Security+2.0™ technology eliminates radio intereference and guards against code theft

This enhanced radio performance has twice the radio range and communicates with the garage door opener in different frequencies, virtually eliminating interference. It also uses a different code every time the remote control is used, guarding against code theft, ensuring your home, family and belongings are safe and secure.


4. Timer-to-Close feature ensures the garage door is never left open by accident

Now you can have the garage door automatically close after a pre-programmed number of minutes – ideal if your hands are full or you are unloading the car. This gives you added peace-of-mind for you and your family, ensuring the largest door to your home closes behind you. This feature requires the Motion-Detecting Control Panel with Timer-to-Close or the Smart Control Panel®.


Integrated Battery Backup


Both the 8550 and 8360 feature a reliable integrated Battery Backup System that ensures the garage door opener, as well as the safety and security features, will continue to work, even when the power is out. That is added peace-of-mind for you and your family, as the garage door is often the main source of entry for many homeowners. And if you live in an area with frequent storms, you know how important it is to be able to access your home when you need to. And now, the Battery Backup system is also available in a chain drive – in Premium Series model 8360.

The Elite Series® Model 8500 Wall Mount Garage Door Opener has an optional Battery Backup. All you need is the battery itself (model 475LM).



What is MyQ® Technology and Why Is It Special?


Just imagine being on vacation and having the ability to open your garage door for your neighbor so they can water the plants and feed the cat. Or being able to check and make sure you closed it after leaving for your business trip overseas. Or even having the ability to turn some house lights on when you're on your way home, just so you don't come home to a dark house. You can if you have the LiftMaster® Internet Gateway accessory and one of our four new MyQ®-enabled garage door openers – model 8550 and 8360 with Battery Backup, model 8500 Wall Mount Garage Door Opener, or model 8355 Belt Drive.

Built-in revolutionary MyQ® technology has the ability to communicate, manage and activate other MyQ®-enabled devices in the home. This gives you greater control and security – you can open or close the garage door or turn on or off lights using your smartphone, tablet or computer – from anywhere, any time.


How It Works

The LiftMaster® Internet Gateway (model 828LM) works with garage door opener model 8550, 8360, 8500 and 8355 (these models have a yellow learn button), and gate operator models CSW24V, CSL24V and LA500. Models 8550 and CSW24V shown below.

Use your Internet-enabled smartphone, tablet or computer to connect remotely to the LiftMaster® Internet Gateway. The Gateway then communicates with the garage door opener or gate operator to open or close, or communicates to home lights to turn them on or off.
