BTW, you don't get an external keypad either which I knew when I bought it but seems dumb on a high dollar opener like this. You can get an opener costing half this much with one in the box. But conveniently you can buy a separate one for another $40. I guess this is the new buesiness model for Liftmaster? I'm surprised there isn't a credit card reader on the wall switch so you can open the door.
This has been going on for the last few years, users on the official Chamberlain website forums have complained, even complired their own scripts that are compatible with the above units, which allow to open/close the garage door, but Chamberlain keeps taking them down. There's only one reason, and that is because they can't monetize it.
There is also a mounting Class Action suit filed in the state of NJ now for false advertising for the above reason. Buyer beware!
Some other things to be aware of:
- the screws to tighten the shaft-coupling have square heads, not hex, and they're hard to get to with a wrench when you're mounting the unit to the shaft (see picture). A 12-point socket on an extension is your friend here.
- completely disconnect the door from your old opener before setting the travel limits. Don't just pull the manual release cord on your old opener, because even if it's riding freely on the track, it still interferes.
- after setting everything up, check the service menu on the wired wall mounted controller (press and hold the 'light' button, then press the 2nd navigation button), specifically the "transmitters" section. Make sure it shows the exact number of remotes you programmed. After I first installed mine it showed 4 instead of 2, because it apparently managed to pick up some remotes from around the neighborhood while I was trying to program the buttons in my cars. This resulted in my garage door opening when one of my neighbors opened theirs.
- while it is compatible with the Google Assistant, it's a bit clunky and limited. You have to say "hey Google, tell MyQ to close the garage" instead of just "Hey Google close the garage". You can't open the garage this way either, you can only close it. And finally, you need a $1/month (or $10/year) subscription. That's right, after you just paid nearly $500 for a fancy garage door opener, you're going to have to continue to pay for the privilege of integrating it with the rest of your smart home setup.
- if you have an older car, you may need a "homelink repeater", as this opener only supports the new "2.0" standard.
