New Technology in Garage Door Openers


Smart Home Technology


The next generation of garage door openers are transforming the garage space with new features that meet the needs of today’s busy homeowners! Believe us when we say that these are not your father’s garage door openers. Their sleek, contemporary design, with modern lighting experiences, elevates the garage into a more functional extension of the smart home.

Sleek, attractive design and premium features replaces the ordinary garage door opener with an aesthetically pleasing and highly-functional smart home device. This updated smart home design with advanced integrated LED lighting brings exciting new features to your modern home. Read on for some of our favorite technology:

Enhanced myQ Connectivity

Enhanced myQ technology makes it easy to link to the myQ app to control, secure and monitor your garage from anywhere. It enables convenient access experiences and keeps track of your garage door and garage opener health for quick and easy service repairs when needed. You will know right away if there is an issue with your garage door and take the hassle out of service repairs by easily connecting with a trusted dealer through the myQ app. Conveniently share your myQ Diagnostics™ report to ensure a rapid repair.

Integrated LED Lighting

LiftMaster’s new line of next gen garage door openers include units with a 2,000 lumens Corner to Corner Lighting system that provides a 360° ring of LED light to uniformly brighten every corner of the garage or a dual lighting system with 1500 lumens of long-lasting LED light that brightens high traffic areas of the garage.

Built-In Camera

Stop imagining and see what’s going on in your garage. Free real-time video monitoring lets you see what’s happening whether you’re at the office or on vacation. View past activity with either a 7-day or 30-day video storage option–available via a monthly subscription. Plus, with 2-way audio you can tell your neighbor where to find the ladder or welcome the kids home with 2-way communication. You can easily connect to myQ cameras and locks to see and control all your garage access points. Get a full view of what is happening around the home (i.e. if a door was left open, kids got home from school, the dog walker came, etc.)

Integrated Battery Backup

During a power outage, access to or from your garage may be critical. Integrated Battery Backup gives you peace of mind that you can get in and out when the power is down. This feature is available in many of the newest Next Gen openers.

Amazon Key and Guest Access

This new technology allows you to enable convenient access experiences like Amazon Key for secure In-Garage Delivery of groceries and Amazon packages. You can conveniently share and manage access without sharing passcodes or keys. Set up guest profiles and directly manage when they have access to your home through the myQ app.
