Smart Garage Door Openers

I was surfing the internet the other day and came across a blog about how you can use your phone to open your garage door.  According to the article, all you need is the following:

  • transistor from Radio Shack
  • soldering iron
  • Bluetooth headset
  • handful of wire ties
  • couple of 12” wires
  • various pliers, wirecutters, etc.

After your have acquired this assorted equipment, you disassemble the headset, remove the earpiece housing by carefully working it loose with a pair of pliers, isolate one of the speaker wires, cut off the black wire and solder the transistor to the red wire from the headset.  Then you need to plug this apparatus into an outlet and hang it from your garage door opener.  You then are able to open your door by going to settings on your phone, hitting the Bluetooth setting and then hitting disconnect.  You do have to do this within a couple of seconds, apparently, or it won’t work.  Different phones do require slightly different instructions.

All seems a bit much, doesn’t it? I mean, unless you possess a love of tinkering, I couldn’t imagine a normal person going through all of this trouble for the simple pleasure of opening a garage with a phone. With all the aps that exist in today’s smart phone marketplace, there should be a far more optimal way to use your phone to open a garage door.

Sure enough, there is.

Liftmaster, the leader in Garage door openers, has a solution that doesn’t require soldering iron. Their new technology “MyQ-enabled” Internet Gateway is a simple solution for using any brand smart phone to not only open your garage door but also to control your home lights as well.  And you don’t need to be standing in front of your garage.  This can be done from any remote location

Their four new garage door openers – the LiftMaster® Elite Series® 8550 and Premium Series 8360 with Battery Backup, the Elite Series® Model 8500 Wall Mount opener, and the Premium Series 8355 – are the only ones in the marketplace with MyQ® technology built right in. This offers you a new level of home activation as opposed to an expensive, hardwired home automation system.

The standard “T-rails” can be converted to stronger “I-rails” with Linear’s bolt-on Carriage House Conversion Kits CHCR-7/8, CHCR-8, and CHCR-10.

To make installation even easier, all the controls and indicators are on one side of the operator. Easy access is provided for the open and close limits, open and close door force settings, transmitter learn/erase button, and RF signal/interference indicator. The built-in diagnostic system flashes the operator’s dual courtesy lights to indicate six possible trouble conditions.

The LCO75 includes infrared safety beams, a 3-button Model MCT-3 transmitter, a lighted deluxe wall station with vacation mode radio disable switch and courtesy light control button.

Liftmaster Garage Door Openers Bucks County PA

Steich Overhead Doors is a proud dealer for LiftMaster garage door openers. LiftMaster® residential garage door openers offer a broad selection in performance, features, and durability. All of their models offer the ultimate in safety and security features, and are available with a variety of horsepower levels and drive systems for all types of homes and applications. They are also proven to withstand even the harshest of elements and years of extended use, and are available with innovative accessories designed to make home access even more convenient.

Older garage door openers were not designed with the safety features of today’s models. The following information is from Liftmaster’s website:

Position on Garage Door Openers Pre 1993

We are committed to the highest standards of product safety. Over the years, the LiftMaster® brand has led the industry in introducing innovative product safety features. As a company, we have manufactured garage door openers for 50 years with a safety record that ranks as one of the best in the industry.

In the early 1990s, the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) enacted into law new rules ensuring that all garage door openers manufactured after 1992 had external entrapment protection devices, such as infrared sensors or sensing edges, in addition to the internal contact reverse mechanism. Garage door openers made prior to 1993 are safe and reliable if installed, tested, and maintained properly. However, the vast majority of these older units are not equipped with infrared sensors or other external entrapment protection devices, and thus do not meet today’s standards for garage door opener safety. To insure the highest degree of safety and customer satisfaction, we believe it is important that pre-1993 garage door openers are replaced, as opposed to being repaired.

Steich Overhead Doors does not recommend the repair of any pre-1993 LiftMaster garage door openers. We believe this decision will provide you with the latest in technology and more safety, security, and convenience features. We believe this decision is in the best interest of our customers, as safety always comes first.
