A garage isn’t just for parking vehicles anymore. More and more people are using their garage for a workspace, gym and extra living space. Having a well-lit garage space is important. Many homeowners have been putting LED bulbs in their existing openers causing their openers to malfunction and the remotes to quit working. This is due to the opener not being set up for the use of LED bulbs. Many LED bulbs will interfere with the electronic radio frequencies. Even LED lights in your garage or rooms nearby can effect openers. So to solve the problems, LiftMaster, the leading manufacturer of garage door openers, developed the new LiftMaster WLED Opener with LED lights built in. This amazing opener lights every corner of your garage and has many top features, making it one of the most popular openers this year.
The new LiftMaster WLED Opener with LED lights was specifically engineered with corner-to-corner lighting to help distribute light evenly throughout your entire garage. This new lighting system has long-lasting LED bulbs, giving you 3100 lumens of bright daylight-like lighting. You won’t believe the difference it makes. Vice President and General Manager of Residential Access Solutions for LiftMaster said, “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.”
