Remember the days when you had to manually open the garage door—in the snow, both ways? Thanks to automatic garage openers, those days are long gone. Now, you can open your garage door from the comfort of your vehicle with the click of a button.
But when it comes to choosing an automatic garage door opener, there are many different brands, models, and features to consider. Here, we’re breaking down the features of our favorite LiftMaster garage openers.
Why choose a LiftMaster
LiftMaster is one of the industry professionals’ top choices across the US, with over 4,000 dealers and installers nationwide. When people think of automatic garage door openers, they think of LiftMaster. And for a good reason. LiftMaster offers some of the most advanced safety and security features, like photo eye safety sensors, force-opening protection, automatic lock capabilities, and technology to defend against code hackers.
LiftMaster 8500w raises the bar
One of the key features that sets the LiftMaster 8500w apart is its space-saving wall-mount design. Traditionally, garage openers mount on the ceiling—reducing your overhead space. Not with the 8500w, which mounts on the wall right next to the door. Its quiet design also minimizes noise and vibration, without sacrificing the power to open heavy doors.
Plus, with Wi-Fi remote compatibility, you can connect your garage opener with your smartphone. The app lets you receive alerts and open and close the garage from anywhere. You’ll never have to second-guess if you closed the garage, or leave your guests waiting outside if you’re running late.
LiftMaster 8587w for a powerful lift
Need to lift an extra heavy door? Then the LiftMaster 8587w is your go-to. This mega-powerful door opener has a steel chassis, I-beam, and trolley to lift the heaviest garage doors, including carriage house and solid wood. Like the 8500w series, this model comes with all the best safety and security features, as well as built-in Wi-Fi for remote monitoring and control.
