      There is NO service fee, & the Ethernet cable does NOT run to the garage!
      Perhaps the previous reviewers had an older version, because the one I purchased Dec. 2013 made NO mention of any services fees on the box, the instruction manual, or the Assurelink website. In fact, the online FAQ explicitly states: "How much does AssureLink connectivity service cost? There is no charge for Assurelink Connectivity." http://clubdeals.craftsman.com/assurelink/faq/ Furthermore, anyone who thinks you need to run an Ethernet network cable to the garage didn't read the directions. The cable is for connecting the included Internet Gateway to your existing router, wherever that may be. The included 2 ft. Ethernet cable is all you need. Mine sits right next to my router. The Internet Gateway then communicates WIRELESSLY to the garage door opener control panel. That said, this product works perfectly right out of the box. I can check the status of the door including how long it's been open/closed using any PC's web browser or on my Android phone. I also like the TTC (Time-To-Close) function on the control panel. You can see the door to auto-close after 1, 5, or 10 minutes. There is also an override "HOLD" button and a LOCK function, if needed. It really has everything you need. Since I was replacing an existing Craftsman control panel, I used the existing screws and holes since they were both 3.25" apart from each other. The only thing that isn't working right now is the "Events" tab on the Assurelink website. Not a showstopper by any means. If you are hesitant to try this because of the alleged fees, don't let that stop you. I should have bought this years ago.

      Works great with one catch
      It was easy to install and does everything it should do. However, as stated in a previous review, it is only service fee free for the first year. This is not a big problem but the description leads you to believe that there will never be a service fee. The description needs to be changed at the very least.

      annual service fee???

      Device was easily installed and works great. Love that I can open the door from anywhere. Very convenient and no longer need to hide a key for those emergency situations.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Waste of money

      Bought this for my Sears belt garage door opener after confirming my unit was compatible. Connection was easy and registered fine both online and on my Smartphone app. While the garage opener continues to work fine, their server/software system is just trash. Most of the time I have to wait HOURS for an event the register on my smartphone, even if I am at home and connected to WIFI. Then there are MANY times where, with only one open/close cycle, it tells me that it did it 3-5 times. Other times, I am told BOTH doors opened when only one did. And finally there are times I am told it opened as soon as I log in, but it didn't. And if you try using the PC interface, it is even worse - 90% of the time it does not connect (SERVER CONNECTION FAILED / TRY LATER) and when it does it says there are NO EVENTS. I don't believe it is the software app but rather Sears' (Chamberlain's) TERRIBLE implementation and support of the 'system' to record/broadcast the information. Bottom line is DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY BUYING THIS ADD-ON OR A SEARS / CHAMBERLAIN GARAGE DOOR OPENER WITH ASSURELINK.

      Easy to install

      This is my second installation with a new home, and the instructions for connecting up to the internet is much improved. The hardware installation was an ease, with an existing non-Craftsman garage opener that was already in place.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Grand Slam!!!

      I just purchased the Assurelink Gateway for my existing Craftsman garage door opener. From out of the box to up and running took only 10 minutes. Half of that time was spent hunting for the account confirmation email, which Google misdirected to my spam folder. This product is really neat, could not be any simpler to install, and performs well. THANK YOU!!! (Purchased it on line too, came two days early!!!) Grand Slam Homer Sears!!!

      Up or Down?

      Occasionally a leaf will stick on the bottom of my garage door and will trip the safety beam when the door is almost down. The safety beam being being tripped will open the door. I have the Assure Link set to send me a message when the door is open after about 10 minutes and i can close it wherever I am.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great Features

      Setup easy. The only thing that needs improving is the Craftsman App. It tells you if the door is open or closed, but you have to press the button many times, sometimes you have to log out and back in to get it to work. When it does work it says closing/opening forever until you again close and reopen the app. About the dunce that had the door come down on top of his truck, if the door was adjusted properly, the door would have reversed when it touched the truck. About the other dunce that the lights would come on at random, read the manual. The motion sensor can be turned off. I have the Time To Close feature set at 10 minutes. Plenty of time to start car and back out and insure it closes if you forget. The lights flash and a alarm sounds for 30 seconds before the door closes. One nice feature I would like, a camera. I have some wireless Dlink security cameras ($20 each on sale) one in the garage to record anyone entering the garage. Family and friends have code to wireless keypad, so they can use my pool as they please. Alerts can be set up to notify you by email or app, when the door is opened, closed, left open for an set time. I don't want constant alerts so I'm using the 10 minute to Close option instead.
