When choosing a garage door opener, it can be hard to sort through the features and figure out what really matters to you as a homeowner. So we’re here to help.
The LiftMaster WLED and the 85503 are the top two high tech garage door openers on the market today. While they share many of the same high-end features, they each have special one element that sets them apart. Read on to learn more about what these LiftMaster openers offer to determine which one is best for you!
Favorite Features on Both Openers:
myQ technology allows you to control your garage door, no matter your location. You’ll be connected with your garage door from the palm of your hand, giving you access to open or close your door, receive real time notifications, preset a schedule for your garage to close at a certain time, and give access to family members so they can remotely manage the garage door.
Pairing myQ technology with Key by Amazon allows safe and secure in-garage delivery of your packages so they’re protected against thieves, bad weather or damage. Delivery is contact-fee to promote social distancing and you’ll have peace of mind that your packages are safe inside of your garage.
Upon delivery day, you’ll receive real-time alerts about the status of your package. The driver will open your garage with a one-time code on their hand-held device, place the package just inside the door, and close the garage door without ever having stepped foot in your home.
Battery backup enables your garage door to open or close during a power outage. This feature offers comfort in knowing you’ll be able to access your garage door and added protection during inevitable storms or unforeseen outages.
The 85503 and WLED are powered by belt drives, which run on a steel reinforced belt and are virtually silent. Unlike a traditional chain opener, the belts on these openers have a lifetime warranty creating an opener that is more durable, silent, and hassle free for years to come.
What Sets Them Apart:
The LiftMaster WLED comes equipped with ultra bright LED lighting (3,100 lumens to be exact!) that lights up the entire garage space. Corner to corner lighting makes it easier to find what you’re looking for or navigate the garage without mishap or injury.
The LiftMaster 85503 features a built-in camera that allows you to see and hear what’s going on in your garage on HD-quality video. The camera auto-adjusts to light levels including night vision to capture activity, no matter the time of day.Two-way audio gives you the ability to talk to anyone in your garage and hear what’s going on.
