I took the time to install this opener myself and couldn't be more pleased. The remotes have quite the range, the opener is suuuuper quiet, the Wi-Fi connected app comes in handy in a pinch, the battery backup is very nice for us since power is spotty at times here, and the wall mount digital time/temp display with automatic light sensor is awesome! No more forgetting to turn the garage light off! My only complaint is that the Homelink isn't compatible with our GM vehicles and requires an extra $50 "gateway". Other than that, this opener is powerful and quiet and has me looking for another Craftsman for the other garage door.
I spent a little while setting this unit up myself. It's not hard, one person can do it. Everything worked just fine UNTIL I got the the place where I had to program my car's homelink. I noticed earlier a little yellow sheet that mentioned special instructions in case you were connecting your car, but I had done this a lot of times and did not give it a second thought. Well it turns out that you need a Compatibility Bridge to allow your car to work and if there is a power outage you'll need to use a remote. THIS IS A BACKWARD SYSTEM... I'm calling Sears and give them a piece of my mind. This kind of incompatible system should not be sold in today's wireless devices. DO NOT BUY THIS... LOOK AT THE REVIEW FOR CHAMBERLAIN'S COMPATIBILITY BRIDGE FIRST!!! THEY ARE ATROCIOUS!!!!
This is the greatest Smart garage door opener. It is connected to my iPhone. No longer use a gadget left in my car that some one could steal and get into my garage. A friend had this and I loved hers. Everyone will wNt this when they find out about it.
We replaced our craftsman chain garage door opener with this craftsman belt garage door opener and we were amazed with the quietness. At first we were happy with just having any garage door opener until we realized how noisy it was in the middle of the night. We decided to buy this craftsman belt and installing was super easy since we did not need to put a new rack on. We basically just replaced the motor and it only took about 5 minutes. Now you can hardly hear the garage opening and closing. Sometimes we have to check to make sure we closed it. It almost sounds like a toy motor and we even questioned its durability. However It’s been working great so far and you also get a 10 year warranty! One thing that took away a star from my rating was that we couldn’t use it with the home link we bought previously. We need to buy a receiver. You would think you would get all the previous benefits plus more with a higher priced upgraded item. Other than that, it’s perfect. Very happy customer.
Bought 2 of these openers, weeks apart to take advantage of the shop your way free $. I’m sure these are going to work great, I’m not even going to worry if the WiFi or connectivity is an issue, it’s a garage door opener. What urks me the most, is I have 9’ doors, so I have to purchase an extension kit (53729) Sears.com price $64.99 (of course out of stock) searspartsdirect.com price for the same kit number $126.99 and they have plenty! The kicker they won’t match sears.com price, they offer a 10% off when I talked to the rep. If a person in this day and age, can’t get a promo code for that, themselves. they really shouldn’t be buying online. But seriously the same part number, same craftsman’s manufacturer and more than likely, shipping the same warehouse and double the price???
I am pleased at the updates, less noise with opening & closing, the automatic closing after being left open x4 minutes.
