When I was kid, I thought my dad used magic to open the garage. Now I know better.

Is this deal for me?

This Chamberlain .5 horsepower garage door opener is down to $132.18 on Amazon. This garage door opener normally sells around $155, and this price matches a low we haven't seen since 2016.

If you get Chamberlain's Internet Gateway, you'll be able to connect this garage door opener to your Wi-Fi and subsequently the Chamberlain MyQ app, which turns this garage door opener into another piece of your smart home.

TL;DR

  • What makes this deal worth considering? - While replacing a garage door opener is not the easiest thing in the world, this is a great deal price and should definitely be something to consider if you're using an ancient system that hasn't been touched since FDR was president.
  • Things to know before you buy! - If you want to add smart functionality to this opener using the MyQ app, you'll need Chamberlain's Internet Gateway to make that happen.
