Factors to Consider in a Garage Opener
To choose the right LiftMaster opener, you need to consider features and suitability for your door. For example, how much horsepower do you want? If you want a long lasting opener, the more horsepower the better. Low horsepower garage openers need changing every few cycles. The size of your door will also impact your decision.
Lift Master openers have a lot of features that competitors just can’t match. The LiftMaster 8587W, for example, has a ¾ horsepower motor. It’s one of only three professionally-installed garage door openers that does.
Remote Control LiftMaster Technology
Another important factor to consider is technology. Do you want an opener with Wifi and app? LiftMaster’s myQ Connectivity allows you to control your garage door from your smartphone or using cloud-based software. With one tap you can check on your door, open or close it, no matter where you are.
