LiftMaster® Model 8500

LiftMaster 8500Unlike more traditional designs, the LiftMaster® Model 8500 Residential Jackshaft Opener can be mounted on the wall beside the garage door, which is convenient if your garage has cathedral ceilings, or if you want extra overhead space for storage or a taller vehicle.


MyQ® technology enables you to securely monitor and control your garage door opener and houselights with your smartphone, tablet or computer.

Alerts can be received as email or pop-up (push) notifications on your mobile device so that you always know the status of your garage door and houselights.

MyQ mobile app is a free download requiring no annual activation fee.


P3™ Motors from LiftMaster® are reliable, durable and powerful – designed specifically for your needs

Ultra-quiet eliminates sound and vibration through the ceiling – perfect if you have a home with a room above or next to the garage.

Wall mount design frees the garage ceiling of hanging operators and rails and opens up the space for additional storage – ideal for cathedral or obstructed ceilings.

Remote light delivers 200 watts of light with adjustable light time delay.

Lifetime motor and 5-year parts warranty.


Security+ 2.0™ safeguards your household – with every click a new code is sent to the garage door opener so that the door opens only for you.

Alert-2-Close warning system provides audible and visual warnings when the garage door is about to close when using MyQ technology or Timer-to-Close.

Motion detector activates the garage door opener lights as soon as you walk in so no more fumbling in the dark.

The Protector System® has safety sensors that project a light beam across the garage door opening automatically reversing the door if anything interrupts the beam.

Power Lock Deadbolt ensures the door cannot be forced open.

To reduce the risk of injury to persons – When the LiftMaster® Internet Gateway is used with garage door openers, the operator must be installed with sectional doors.
