Traveling Motor Technology

Quiet. Durable. Strong.

The Direct Drive garage door opener is the only one of its kind to offer Europe's leading innovative technology. Unlike conventional garage door openers that use a noisy chain, belt or screw, the Direct Drive has only one moving part. The motor glides silently along the chain which is embedded in a sturdy steel rail. It is perfect for homes with living spaces above the garage. The Direct Drive features very smooth operation with soft start and stop technology. Because the motor is located at the door instead of the back of the opener it maximizes the power. There is no gear damage like with conventional garage door openers.

Features

Safety features: Safety beam sensor sends an invisible light beam across the garage door opening and automatically reverses the door if anything interrupts the beam while the door is going down. The additional internal obstacle detection system sensors every door movement and reverses the door if an obstacle is in the way.

This opener (with the blue buttons) is a newer version of the model 1041 (red buttons); to my knowledge the only differences are HomeLink and rolling code, both of which are a must in my opinion. Regarding the mechanics and basic features, I second the great reviews for model 1041. With just a tall ladder this opener wasn't hard to install at all (by myself, without a helper).

It is incredibly (extremely, unbelievably, wonderfully, fantastically) quiet. QUIET. Really. The neighbor's garage from across the alley is now louder than mine. And that's when I'm standing directly underneath my new opener. However, as mentioned in the reviews for model 1041, this opener could use a little more zip, and that's why I deducted a star. The opener also doesn't have Internet connectivity or a battery backup, if that's important to you, you should look at different models.

Here are a few things that I found out while installing this:
- It is only compatible with A15 bulbs or smaller. The instructions only mention an inch size, so if you don't do the math real quick and put in a standard A19 bulb (such as the special Philips A19 garage door opener bulbs), you WILL melt the plastic housing (light bulbs are in eights of an inch, so 19/8 = 2.375 and that's more than 2).
- Go to homelink.com for your programming instructions. I wasted an hour following BMW's directions and didn't get anywhere. The web site said "push all three buttons" and it worked immediately (this seems to be the only opener that requires all three buttons to program)

There's a great warranty and in addition to all kinds of replacement parts Sommer also sells a side mount kit, which is intriguing in its own right.

My main goal was low noise and this opener delivers. However, I do wish someone figured out a way to increase the speed of this system by 40% or so by hacking it. But then again, patience is a virtue.

Verified Purchase
I recently replaced my liftmaster 1/2 hp professional chain driven garage door opener with this one from Sommer. What a difference. The Liftmaster was loud and caused some vibrations in the room above the garage. You always knew when the door opened. With this opener, you barely hear the motor running, and no more vibrations. I bought it just for those reasons and I'm glad I did. I'll be replacing the second garage door opener as well.

Setup was easy enough but took some time. Total time invested with taking the old opener down and getting the new one up, about 3 hours. The hardest part was not having help balancing the openers and the tracks as I was taking them down or putting them up. I looked at the instructions beforehand to get an idea of what to do and that helped. The pictures were good enough and self explanatory. The quality of the track seemed sturdy enough. The provided hangers were flimsy. I ended up using my old angle brackets, but readjusted them. The bracket that attaches to the track and supports the end of the track seems sturdy enough. One of my problems was that angle irons didn't fit flush in the inset of the bracket so the bracket was a little torqued. I fixed this with getting a longer screw to attach to the bracket and added a rubber bushing between the bracket and angle iron so it be more flush. I ended up using the same wiring from the old unit as it was already tucked away nice and neat. I tried to use my old sensors as well but that didn't work. I ended up opening the housing of the provided eye sensors and was able to attach the old wires without a problem. The wall control is a little cheap looking but not a big deal. The remotes are nice and thin and easy to program. Overall, the build is nice and simple.

This garage door opener was a mostly simple install. I was replacing an existing garage door opener that no longer worked. So, I was able to re-use some of the existing hardware (which made the installation easier).

Programming the homelink was a bit of a journey. I was able to program the homelink with 2013 Toyota Sienna without any issues (took only a couple of minutes); however, when I tried to program a 2012 Mercedes C350, none of the instructions helped. I went to the homelink site, through the MB manual and to the sommer site. I even called both homelink and sommer support and didn't get very far with either of them. I then decided to go back to the sommer website instructions. All the way down at the bottom there is a hyperlink to "For a smaller percentage of vehicles that are not covered by the instructions above". Skimming through the web page, I didn't notice the link because it was the same color as the surrounding text. Clicking on that link sends you to a pdf on dropbox with the following instructions:

For HomeLink modules with a multi-color LED (these HomeLink modules are not as common, usually found on certain European vehicles):
1. Press and hold the outer two buttons for approximately 10 seconds, releasing only when the HomeLink indicator light turns green.
2. Wait approximately 10 seconds for the HomeLink indicator light to turn off.
3. Press and hold the middle button for approximately 20 seconds, releasing only when the
HomeLink indicator turns green.
4. Wait approximately 10 seconds for the HomeLink indicator light to turn off.
5. To ensure HomeLink is in the proper training mode, press and hold each of the buttons
individually.
