WD962KEV Battery Backup Garage Door Opener
Chamberlain's WD962KEV garage door opener is easy to install and configure (click to enlarge).
Works Even When the Power Goes Out
With the WD962KEV garage door opener from Chamberlain, you can have complete use of your garage during a power outage. The WD962KEV features a built-in battery backup so that, when the power goes out, the garage door opener will still work. This system provides up to 20 open/close cycles during the first 24 hours of an outage.

Automatically Closes the Door If You Forget To
Thanks to a timer-to-close feature, you can set the WD962KEV to automatically close your garage door after a set amount of time--in case you forget to close the door yourself. This function can be programmed to close your door after one minute, five minutes, or 10 minutes.

Control Interior and Exterior Lights
This product comes equipped with Chamberlain's MyQ technology, which allows you to set it to automatically control interior and exterior lights, so that you never have to come home to a dark house. Chamberlain MyQ lighting accessories are required to take advantage of this feature and are sold separately.

Smooth Start and Stop for Less Noise
The WD962KEV features smooth start and smooth stop functionality to reduce the noise of the garage door as it opens and closes. This is especially great for houses with a room above the garage. In addition, automatic force-sensing technology constantly monitors your garage door opener system and adjusts it for temperature fluctuations.

Motion-Detecting Control Panel
Included with this garage door opener is a control panel that allows you to easily program the remote controls, keypads, and MyQ lighting accessories. The control panel also automatically turns on lights when movement is sensed.

Garage Door Sensors and Other Safety Features
The WD962KEV garage door opener comes with Protector System safety sensors with Rapid-Snap® brackets. These sensors project an invisible light beam across the garage door opening and automatically reverse the door if anything interrupts the beam while the door is going down. They will also stop the door from closing if contact is made with a person or object.

Other safety features include Security+ 2.0 anti-burglary technology, which assures that a new code is sent every time the remote control is used, and PosiLock theft protection, which keeps the door locked once it's closed. A manual release handle allows you to open the garage door in case of a battery failure.

The WD962KEV is backed by a lifetime motor warranty, a lifetime belt warranty, a five-year parts warranty, and a one-year accessory warranty.

What's in the Box
WD962KEV garage door opener, two remote controls, one wireless keyless entry system, and one control panel.

Verified Purchase
This product is the latest generation of opener technology from Chamberlain. It is extremely quiet and the warranty is fantastic (better than earlier generations). Please note that because this is a new generation, there WILL be compatibility problems with older generation openers. The remotes and remote keypad use Security+ 2.0 and the accessories use MyQ technology. This means that this opener will not work with previous generations of Chamberlain accessories, so be careful when purchasing them. Also, some reviews here that are not Amazon verified seem to not be for this unit and describe earlier generations. This unit is for 7' tall doors (kits available for taller ones). Note that the model carried by Costco looks to have a similar model number (WD962KD) but it uses the older technology so the accessories/remotes are not compatible.

Pluses over older generation belt driven models: Better warranty than earlier generations. Compatible with CFL bulbs. Cheaper/more capable monitor accessory. Auto-Close feature. Motion detecting light activation. MyQ Accessories are pretty awesome (see end of review for a summary). There are lots of reviews here regarding Homelink compatibility - I'd call Chamberlain before purchasing if you have HomeLink enabled cars (bear in mind if you need a repeater box it works on mains power so you can't use the car opener in the event of a power failure - an inconvenience, but not a deal killer - use the wireless keypad instead).

My recommendation is to go to the Chamberlain website and get a copy of the manual for this unit and read it before purchase to fully understand what you are getting. When reading the manual, you need to know that this unit comes with the Motion detecting panel, NOT the smart one.

This is the best garage door opener I have ever seen and not heard. It is well built and dead silent.

The WD962KEV opener is sold under as a variety of bundles. I happen to have the HD920EV (HD stands for Home Depot), the opener itself is exactly the same across all these bundles, it is the accessories that are different (HD920EV, 349544, WD962KEF, and WD962KPEV are the same opener).

My only complaint with this opener is the instruction manual. There is a fair amount of paper packed in the box. It would have been really simple for Chamberlain to publish and installation manual and then a separate manual for use. I'm not normally somebody that likes extra paperwork. In this case the installation is so complicated and long, and I will only use that part of the manual once; it seems logical to have a separate manual for adjusting, programming, and use. Sadly the whole box feels like a bunch of independent parts tossed in one box. The biggest omission is the whole HomeLink discussion - what kinds of accessories can I use with this thing, and the whole MyQ technology. There is absolutely nothing in this box about any of those cool things. I'm still totally confused about what accessories I can buy and what they actually do.

The garage door opener itself is incredible. A 3/4 horsepower motor is more than enough power to reliably open and close just about any home garage door. I had a LiftMaster 1/3 horsepower chain drive opener that lasted over 18 years. One day it shredded the drive gear and I decided it was time to just buy a new opener. My split panel garage door has parallel springs (not the roll up torsion springs). I had the door inspected for tension, and it turned out the door was just fine, my opener just got old and died.

Although I bought this product at a local store, this product is the same.

By far this is the quietest garage door opener I have owned. I am very impressed with everything about this product. Some people complained about the directions. I found them very clear. Some people also complained about some missing parts. Since each installation is very different, I can understand why some parts might not be included. The directions make it very clear which parts are missing from the kit.

There is a downside that was brought up by a previous reviewer. The garage door opener uses new frequencies or codes that are not compatible with automobiles older than 2011. The company that deals with the wireless stuff is called Homelink, a unit of Johnson Controls. I called up the company and told the representative that my car would not program properly. He told me my car was not compatible and I needed something called a Homelink Repeater. That would have been nice to know earlier, but I was able to order it from him for $7.52 shipping and handling. Supposedly this retails for $50.

My garage door opener is less that a week old, so I will have to see how it holds up long-term.

I purchased this opener at the local home improvement store this last weekend. Unfortunately I spent more than today's Gold Box deal, but that's another matter. :) I purchased it for the belt drive and battery backup feature. Once installed I was blown away by the included indoor monitor module and the control box for the wall since they have features I was not expecting. **As noted by a commenter it appears the bundle here does not include these options.

- Time and temperature display on the wall button module
- Auto-closing based on the timer
- Indoor monitor has light indication of an open door as well as an audible alert

The track length made it fit using the hanging hardware already in place for my Genie screrw-drive unit that had gotten WAY too loud. I highly recommend this opener.

HOMELINK USERS - The reviewers are correct about the homelink compatibility issue. This is not a new problem. Garage opener manufacturers change their security protocols and frequencies once in a while to thwart thieves who continue to get better. I knew this going in and did not consider the $34 repeater to be compatible with my 2007 and 2009 vehicles with Homelink to be an issue at all. While you're ordering that you can also grab an Internet connection module if you are completely geeky. :)
