Picking the Right Garage Door Opener

Gandert Door Company offers two different lines of electric garage door openers: residential and commercial. Each of these options are manufactured by LiftMaster and have a proven track record in the industry and meet exacting performance requirements.

In addition, all of our models offer the utmost in safety and security features and are available with a variety of horsepower levels and drive systems. We pride ourselves on providing options for every home or business. But say you are a homeowner, and you aren't sure what kind of garage door opener you need. This blog will help you through some questions to think about in order to make your decision.

First, what kind of features would you like? LiftMaster offers quiet and ultra quiet operating models. If your garage is attached to your house, ultra quiet is probably what you want. Lighting is also a feature to pick. Do you want standard lighting or ultra-bright LED lights? Depending on how much time you spend in your garage, you might want a brighter light to work with.

LiftMaster also offers four safety and security options for you to choose from.
  1. Connectivity: This allows you to have the myQ connection to your smartphone. You can control your door, locks, and lighting through a few taps on your phone.
  2. Battery Backup: This one is obvious. If the power goes out, it will allow you to still be able to gain access to your garage without disconnecting the door from the opener.
  3. Integrated Video Camera: For those interested in even more security, having a camera built into your garage door opener will allow you to see who is accessing your garage and when.
  4. Automatic Garage Door Lock: With this option your door will deadbolt automatically upon closing, giving you even more protection and security.
Beyond these safety features, you also have to think about the door the garage door opener will be handling. They typically come in two powers 1/2 horsepower and 3/4ths hp. If your door is very heavy (or large) or if you live in a rough climate, you will definitely want to consider the stronger 3/4th hp motor.

Then there is the drive style that you want. Most doors in the past have used the chain drive, and it is still the most budget-friendly. Now, you have the choice of a belt drive as well, which is a very quiet run. For those with space issues, the wall-mounted drive is also something to consider.

Secure View Garage Door Opener

We want our garages to be safe from being broken into and our possessions from being stolen, but they are often not as well-protected as the rest of the house. Security systems are useful, but often the cameras are put inside living areas and maybe around the outside of the garage, but that will cost you extra. Wouldn't it be nice if we could have a handy security system that would actually be inside the garage without the extra cost? Enter the Secure View Garage Door Opener from LiftMaster!You have probably seen doorbells by Ring, Vivint, Nest that come with a camera so you can see who is at the door before they even ring the bell. The integrated video camera in the Secure View Garage Door Opener works similarly, but it can also be manually tilted and rotated 360 degrees to see everything that happens in the garage. The glare-resistant, night vision lens auto-adjusts to light levels in the garage to capture everything and anything that passes through the garage.
