When buying a garage door opener you may become overwhelmed with all of the options that are offered on the market. In our previous blog post we spoke about the new battery backup law that went into effect which basically states no new garage door opener can be installed without a battery backup. With that being said there are plenty of really helpful functions that your opener can offer. So, it is important to understand what you want out of your garage door.

Whether it be the brand or functionality we think that there is a garage door suitable for everyone’s needs. For instance, if you are into the technology lifestyle (which most of us are) then check out the Liftmaster 8500W. First off, the sleek design speaks for itself, this garage door opener mounts to the side of your garage door vs crowding the overhead space! The 8500W has smartphone control. What is that you ask? Lets just say you leave the house in a hurry and can’t remember if you closed that darn garage door? Well with the smartphone control you can not only close the garage door, if in fact you forgot to close it but it will also let you know if it is shut or not… giving you peace of mind. Lets face it we all have a lot going on in our days, and taking away the worry about the garage door being open or shut can really help us focus on our other daily tasks we have to do. If this hasn’t impressed you yet, then wait until we tell you about Amazon Delivery! What does that have to do with anything? Everything! You can now get your Amazon packages safely delivered from a one time code an Amazon Delivery carrier gets so that they may open your garage door and place your package safely inside and close up once delivered! You will even receive alerts when your garage door is being opened and closed! The possibilities are just endless with the Liftmaster 8500W and the sleek design.
