It was simple to program and install ... It worked on the very first try!

It was simple to program and install, and I am a novice at DIY. I was replacing an old keypad. After programming and installing... IT WORKED ON THE VERY FIRST TRY! How often does that happen? The jury is still out on the pros and cons of the keypad as I just intalled it and I am unsure of the durability, and I am not sure that plastic = high quality... but we shall wait and see.

Two minutes to mount, 30 seconds to program. Worked first time!

Mounted it inside the house, by the back door so can open or close garage door inside out of the weather! Two minutes to mount, 30 seconds to program. Worked first time!

I would be a bit leery about mounting it out in the direct weather for obvious reasons, but also try to enter code in pouring rain or blowing snowstorm.

Easy to put it up... Programming was easy...

This is my second Genie Excelerator. I decided to replace my 12yr old one with this one. (Old one still worked fine.) Easy to put it up, maybe 1.5 hrs. Programming was easy. I also bought the battery backup. It too was easy to install. I really like the fast up speed on this model.

What a great, simple and affordable remote!!!

I have a 22 year old Genie Garage Door opener. It finally bit the dust and was certainly a candidate for the Smithsonian Museum. My wife bought a new car and I needed a replacement remote opener to program the installed opener in her car. Needless to say I shopped around and decided on this one, "Good Decision", I'm the kind of guy who breaks out in a cold sweat when trying to use the T.V. remote. This opener and the directions that came with it, took about 5 minutes to set the codes and it worked the first time. I was in shock!!! What a great, simple and affordable remote!!!

BOY oh BOY, this opener is the quietest I have ever heard...

My old opener did fine, but it burned up after 20+ years. Bought this one as a replacement, BOY oh BOY, this opener is the quietest I have ever heard. Barely even know it is opening, I thought the noise before was coming from the door itself, but not now. If you did not see the door moving you would not know if it is opening or closing. Thanks Lowes for handling such a great product.

This will be my go to opener if one of my other two would go bad...

Once I had it installed there were no adjustments. Just pressed the button and the travel and downforce adjustments were made automatically. After about 50 opening and closings, I have had no problems with this opener to date. This will be my go to opener if one of my other two would go bad.

This remote was easy to program, the batteries are easy to find, and overall, this purchase was a much better value than the last garage door remote we bought to supplement the original one that came with the garage door opener purchase back in 2000.

Better construction, more durable, should last longer.

W.O.W!!! Amazing how scary quiet this is! Very simple instlation.

Purchased this item to replace an old 1992 chain 1/2 HP driven garage door opener. W.O.W!!! Amazing how scary quiet this is! Very simple instlation. Color coded bags are fantastic to help with step by step installation. This was my very first install and I can honestly say it was a breeze. Install Took a couple hours just to make sure I was doing everything according to the instructions correctly. The longest part I wouls say was running the included wires for the safety beams since my old opener did not have that feature. I purchased insulated staples to help keep the wire secure to the walls while running them down to the safety eyes. Overall very simple set up. Love the 2 remotes, easy to connect to your cars home link , and now my garage door doesn't sound like its abou to explode any more! 1 suggestion would be to tighten all your bolts on your garage door and spray the joints and moving parts with a garage lubricant to make your door sound even quieter!! 5 stars for this opener.
