  • DYE Garage Door Openers?

    In this thread you educate me on the new hotness. Would be cool if it had an app/wifi so criminals could hack in to it. Two requirements are that it syncs with my automobiles and has a battery backup since that is my primary entrance point.


    Anything suggested will need nG certification of course.

      Mine is being a bitch so it is time to replace it.

        Mine is slow as fuck, requires multiple button presses to get moving, and makes strange noises. I guess 'being a bitch' describes it pretty well.

        I'd like to be prepared for the day it decide that it has had enough.

          Interesting. The first time I open mine every morning it only works from the hard wired button. None of my remotes will do the trick. But after that, it's fine for the rest of the day. Super fucking retarded.

          Your problem might actually be in the coiled spring above the door, assuming your door tech isn't 900 years old. I had to get mine tighten once when it was struggling to open.

          Get a can of this shit too.




          Makes the door super stealth.

            Nice! I'll give it a try.

            Mine is almost as old as we are -- pretty sure it dates back to the original construction of the home in '78

              I doubt your next one will last that long

                Things are definitely not made with longevity in mind any more.

                Except Weber grills. That thing is indestructible.

                  I suggest Jackshaft style, it's direct drive with no overhead chains/belts. Attaches directly to the spring-shaft and mounted on the wall right next to the garage.

                  I recommend a Liftmaster 8500. I have two of them, one in my 2-car and one in a high-lift configuration for my 14' 3rd car garage. They're quiet, DC motor, and secure with automatic locking deadbolt once closed. Optional is the battery backup, I haven't bought it (I keep a key lock/hidden in my shed). And Internet gateway, which I have but rarely use...

                    Looks like they also have a newer more traditional overhead model... I have no experience with this particular model but it has all your wants built-in, and is DC belt drive. If you go with a traditional overhead model as opposed to Jackshaft style, highly recommend belt drive. Much smoother and quieter.

                        Those where the posts I was waiting for.

                        I don't even get how that first one works though.

                          These are all like motorcycles. You can have a chain, a belt, or a shaft drive the door. Shafts are stronger and quieter than the other two.

                          That is the sum of my knowledge so far.

                              I mean how it mounts to the wall right by the door. I've never seen anything like that.
