The 1¼ HP Belt Drive powering this Garage Door Opener Kit with myQ® ensures lifting a 7 ft. garage door is no problem even in cases of severe weather or when the door is made of solid wood. Ideal for attached garages, the steel-reinforced belt drive delivers smooth and quiet performance time after time. The integrated battery backup ensures the garage door will work even when the power is out. You can easily control your garage door from anywhere at anytime, as well as get real time alerts, all from your smartphone with the myQ® app. And with a wireless keypad, outside access is available with a simple touch. It can be programmed with up to 24 permanent PINs and 24 temporary PINs for limited, single-use access, and comes with an all-weather cover. Plus, the 3-Button Remote control allows you to easily program up to three garage doors and boasts a frequency range of up to 1500 ft. The multi-function LCD wall controller activates lights with motion detection and is the central hub for system diagnostics and custom programming. You can even set it to auto-close the garage door after a certain amount of time, giving you peace of mind that the door is closed. The included Safety Sensors stop the garage door from closing if something is in its path. Backed by our highest warranty, you can rest assured that the motor and drive are covered for a lifetime.
