The new feature-rich units have an improved radio system and are equipped with MyQ® technology – a patented two-way communication system that allows the units to open and close the garage door and manage other household devices via smartphone, tablet or computer from anywhere, anytime. They also offer many other features that take security and convenience to a whole new level. Watch our video and read more below to learn more.
1. These New Garage Door Openers Can Do More Than Just Open and Close the Garage Door
The new LiftMaster® 8550, 8360, 8500 and 8355 garage door openers have built-in MyQ® technology that enables you to operate the garage door or turn house lights on or off from anywhere, anytime – all by using a smartphone, tablet or computer. This offers you a new level of home activation as opposed to an expensive, hardwired home automation system.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The LiftMaster® Internet Gateway is only compatible with garage door opener models 8550, 8360, 8500 and 8355. These models have a yellow learn button. It is also compatible with LiftMaster® Security+2.0™ gate operators (models CSW24V, CSL24V or LA500), and lighting accessories enabled by MyQ® technology.
2. Reliable Battery Backup System Is Now Available in a Chain Drive
If you're a chain drive loyalist or have heavy carriage-house or solid wood doors that may need steady performance and lifting power to open, the Battery Backup System now comes in Premium Series model 8360. And the Elite Series® Model 8500 Wall Mount Garage Door Opener has an optional Battery Backup. All you need is the battery itself (model 475LM).
3. Security+2.0™ Technology Eliminates Radio Interference and Guards Against Code Theft
This enhanced radio performance has twice the radio range and communicates with the garage door opener in different frequencies, virtually eliminating interference. It also uses a different code every time the remote control is used, guarding against code theft, ensuring your home, family, and belongings are safe and secure.
4. Timer-To-Close Feature Ensures the Garage Door Is Never Left Open by Accident
Now you can have the garage door automatically close after a pre-programmed number of minutes – ideal if your hands are full or you are unloading the car. This gives you added peace-of-mind for you and your family, ensuring the largest door to your home closes behind you. This feature requires the Motion-Detecting Control Panel with Timer-to-Close or the Smart Control Panel®.
Integrated Battery Backup
Both the 8550 and 8360 feature a reliable integrated Battery Backup System that ensures the garage door opener, as well as the safety and security features, will continue to work, even when the power is out. That is added peace-of-mind for you and your family, as the garage door is often the main source of entry for many homeowners. And if you live in an area with frequent storms, you know how important it is to be able to access your home when you need to. And now, the Battery Backup system is also available in a chain drive – in Premium Series model 8360.
The Elite Series® Model 8500 Wall Mount Garage Door Opener has an optional Battery Backup. All you need is the battery itself (model 475LM).
