This weekend my fiance and I went to visit my parents who live in San Diego. We arrived Friday evening. Traffic had been pretty heavy so we were looking forward to relaxing and watching some TV with my mom. As we were watching we had an unexpected power outage. My dad works in the evening and was on his way home from work. Our first thought, after we accessed some candles for light, was wondering how he was going to get in the garage without any power. Thankfully we had an Entry Systems employee with us and he knew exactly what to do! He disengaged the motor and lifted the door manually. The first thing he said was, “Don’t you wish you had a battery backup for your motor?”
Unfortunately my parent’s house was not equipped with a battery backup to use in a time like this. We saw this weekend how unexpectedly things can change and helpful it would have been to have that battery backup. Make sure you are prepared for the next power outage by adding a LiftMaster battery backup to your garage door opener!
With a battery back-up on your operator you won’t end up stuck in the next power outage.
The LiftMaster 8550 and 8500 both have battery back up capabilities. For more information about garage door openers, click here.
We are excited to announce that we are able to beat our deal from August making this the best one in 40 years! We love the 8550 because aside from being one of LiftMaster’s quietest, most reliable operators, it comes with a lifetime warranty on the motor/belt and is loaded with the latest technology. Forgot to close the garage? The Timer-to-Close wall console can be set to close 1-99 minutes after being left open. Can’t find the house key during a power outage? The battery back up can operate for 1-2 days without power! Need to let in the repairman but can’t get away from the office? You can control your garage door from your smartphone, anywhere in the world. You can also set up alerts to be notified when your garage door is operated while you’re away. Peace of Mind. Reliability. Safety.
