Brighter light and broader coverage lets you do more with your space

OAKBROOK, Ill., Aug. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a recent LiftMaster® survey, 88% of American homeowners agree that the garage has more purposes than parking a car. As the garage continues to become the go-to room for hobbyists, handymen and workout enthusiasts alike, it is no surprise that 2 in 5 homeowners agreed that they would use their garage even more if it had better lighting. Improving the usability of garage amenities such as a workbench is just one of the many benefits of having a well-lit garage space.

The new LiftMaster WLED DC Battery Backup LED Wi-Fi® Residential Garage Door Opener includes a Corner to Corner Lighting™ system specifically designed and engineered with advanced technology that helps evenly distribute light to fill the entire garage with 3,100 lumens of daylight-like lighting. Additionally, the Corner to Corner Lighting system's long-lasting LEDs means homeowners will never have to change a garage light bulb again.

"When we talked with homeowners, even those who felt satisfied with their current lighting were eager to find ways to introduce more lighting to their garage," said John Villanueva, Vice President and General Manager, Residential Access Solutions for LiftMaster. "As homeowners look to make the most of their garage, lighting plays an important role in increasing the functionality and quality of the space. The WLED provides homeowners with an all-in-one device that combines superior lighting, smart home technology and battery backup to help further maximize the value of their garage."

Key features that come with the LiftMaster WLED Garage Door Opener include:

  • Smart Home Capabilities: Complete with built in Wi-Fi and powered by myQ® technology, homeowners will have the ability to open and close their garage door from anywhere and will receive alerts if its left open. Homeowners will also enjoy the ability to link myQ to other smart home devices with which LiftMaster has partnered.
  • Integrated Battery Backup: Homeowners have peace of mind with a Battery Backup system, as it keeps the opener working in a power outage, so homeowners and their families can still get in and out.
  • Quiet Operation: An ultra-quiet DC motor and soft start/stop smooth operation ensures for comfortable living spaces near the garage.

Additionally, homeowners can customize the WLED Garage Door Opener with powerful add-ons, like the Automatic Garage Door Lock, which creates an extra layer of protection serving as a deadbolt for your garage door. Homeowners can also add more convenience with Wireless Keyless Entry and the Mini Universal Remote Control.
