Ultra-Quiet & Strong Belt Drive with MAX Lifting Power

The Chamberlain MyQ Smart WiFi Garage Door Opener features a super strong steel-reinforced belt drive and is built from high-grade materials for exceptional performance, reliability, and quiet operation.

Powered by Chamberlain's MAX Lift Power System™, the Chamberlain MyQ Smart WiFi Garage Door Opener delivers lifting force equivalent to 1-1/4 HP, the highest lifting capacity in the category for superior performance in extreme conditions. Frequently used garage doors require more horsepower for reliable performance, year after year. If your garage is often used as a main entry point into your home, MAX Lifting Power may be for you.

And perfect for attached garages, the B970 features anti-vibration technology to deliver years of smooth, ultra-quiet performance you can sleep through.

Two Built-In Garage Lights

Two 100-watt standard or CFL bulbs (not included) provide ample light for confident and safe movement around the garage. And the Wall Control Panel displays time, temperature, diagnostics, and allows you to control the door and turn on the lights, too. It even has a built-in motion sensor to automatically turn the lights on for you when you enter the garage (optional).

Includes Remotes, Wall Controls, and More

The Chamberlain MyQ Smart WiFi Garage Door Opener includes two (2) 3-button TriBand™ frequency remotes that let you control a combination of up to 3 openers or Chamberlain MyQ interior light modules (sold separately). Exclusive TriBand™ technology boosts remote range up to 1,500 feet for a quicker entrance and exit.

Also included is the wireless exterior keypad that permits access with a four-digit secure code. Unmatched Security+2.0® 100 Billion code encryption protects against hacking, and Posilock™ anti-theft protection assures that once the door closes, it stays locked.

Additionally, included Safety Sensors project an invisible beam preventing the garage door from closing on people, pets, or other objects.

About the MyQ Mobile App

The free MyQ Smart Garage Control mobile app for Apple/Android smartphones and tablets (and the matching mobile website for non-iOS/Android users) gives you remote control over your Garage Door Opener and other MyQ wireless devices. You can also set schedules and receive activity alerts as mobile push notifications or emails, or both.

Furthermore, linking the MyQ app to partner apps offers more enhanced control options such as garage door voice control or geo-fencing (may require an accessory purchase or subscription fee. Subscription fee applies after 30-day free trial ends. Visit www.chamberlain.com/technology-partners for more details.)

HomeLink In-Vehicle Remote Control System

If you have HomeLink built into your vehicle's interior (such as the mirror, visor, or overhead console), you can program it to control the Garage Door Opener.

NOTE: The Compatibility Bridge™ (not included) is necessary for certain vehicles. Visit bridge.chamberlain.com to find out if a Bridge is needed.

Optional Accessories

You can also optionally purchase additional MyQ wireless devices for use with the hub, such as MyQ visor garage door remotes, MyQ keychain remotes, MyQ remote control lamp modules and switches, and more (all sold separately).

Garage Door Compatibility & Installation Details

The Chamberlain MyQ Smart WiFi Garage Door Opener works with both sectional and one-piece garage doors. However, the garage door opener should NOT be installed on a one-piece door if using devices or features providing unattended close*. Unattended devices and features are to be used ONLY with sectional doors.

The garage door can measure up to 7 feet in height with standard hardware. A rail extension kit (sold separately) is required for a larger door measuring 8 feet (8808CBP) or 10 feet (8810CB). All standard installation hardware is included in this complete kit. Installation is made simple by pre-programmed remotes, the snap-lock rail system, and online installation videos.

The included Safety Sensors project an invisible beam preventing the garage door from closing on people, pets, or other objects.

*Note: The Timer-to-Close (TTC) feature, the MyQ app, and MyQ Garage Door and Gate Monitor are examples of unattended close and are to be used ONLY with sectional doors. Any device or features that allows the door to close without being in the line of sight of the door is considered unattended close.

About the Backup Battery

The included backup battery charges while the Chamberlain MyQ Smart WiFi Garage Door Opener is plugged into an electrical outlet. The battery requires 24 hours to fully charge. A fully charged battery supplies 12VDC to the Garage Door Opener for 1 to 2 days of normal operation during an electrical power outage. After the electrical power has been restored, the battery will recharge within 24 hours. The battery will last approximately 1 to 2 years with normal usage.
