Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Can't believe how quiet this opener is, compared to the chain driven one I replaced. Great for built-in garages.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect except for older vehicles’ Homelink Easy to install. WiFi enabled features are great. I give it four stars only because older Homelink equipped vehicles cannot connect but I was aware of this limitation before I bought the opener.

Does this unit have to be programmed to stay open until I manually close it?

Asked by: Donna
No, it does not need to be programmed. Once the door is open, it will stay open until you manually close it. It does come with options of timer to close. For any information, please contact Support for assistance.

Single door garage, but 8 ft in a new built home. is this too much hp ?-- i like the idea of battery back up. My question is: for this model, which extension kit will be required?

Asked by: Linda
The HP on this opener would be just fine for your type of door. However, you will need the 8ft rail extension model 8808CB-P.

This is a 1 1/4 hp opener. Can I replace my old 1/2 hp garage door opener with this one?

Asked by: chilly
Having more lifting force just means that the opener doesn't work as hard so it will last longer. It's great for doors that get frequent use.

What is diffrence between Chamberlain Smartphone-Controlled Ultra-Quiet & Strong Belt Drive Garage Door Opener with Battery Backup Model # B970C|Store SKU # 1000837132 And Model # B1381C|Store SKU # 1001160876

Asked by: Saeed
you'd really have to side by side compare them. This company is one of those that has product sku for each variation and sometimes virtually identical products with little to no information disambiguating them - sometimes this is done to prevent "price match" requests. thankfully the product works (in a way). The app functions, but the google home integration is horrible. The wrong method of integration was done which makes using voice for it exceedingly awkward, but at least it's easier than operating manually. I've got a fair bit of experience with smart home products - setting it up is easy. the belt drive is immensely quieter than the chain drive. The battery backup works well, which is good for storms, and the lights are bright. Was a simple upgrade.
