Wayne Dalton idrive garage door opener for doors with torsion spring systems
idrive Torsion openers are designed for sectional steel or wood garage doors that use traditional torsion counterbalance springs. To identify torsion springs, look for exposed springs coiled around a steel bar above your door.
The idrive opener sets new standards for garage door safety, appearance, and technology. By mounting idrive on the wall above your door, you can eliminate the belts, chain, screw drive, and track that clutter your garage ceiling. That mean less noise and vibration are transferred to adjoining living areas. According to independent tests, idrive is quieter than any chain drive opener you can buy.
This unit is has been discontinued. Please look at the Liftmaster Model 8500 for a replacement unit - Liftmaster Elite Series Model 8500 Wall Mount Garage Door Opener
The idrive unit is not mounted to the ceiling, so it doesn't transmit noise and vibration directly to any room above. Since no chains or screw drives are utilized, quiet reaches a whole new level as many of the mechanical parts that create noise on traditional openers are eliminated. Wireless wall station Our five-function wireless wall station controls door open-close, light on-off, programmable pet opening, 10-second closing safety delay and transmitter program button. Includes low-battery indicator. Because of its wireless design, it can be located anywhere in the garage. For more convenience, install two or more.
Programmable Pet Opening Button
With one push of the button, your door will open to a pre-selected height between 6" and 30", allowing pets to easily move in and out. This feature is also beneficial for garage ventilation. Security Light This energy efficient security light plugs into any electrical outlet within line-of-sight of the opener. Automatically lights with opener activation and stays on five minutes for safer, easier night entry into the garage and home. Also operates manually from wall station without having to activate the opener.
Homelink is an integrated transceiver (a transmitter and receiver) that can be programmed to activate radio frequency (RF) devices such as garage doors. It is available on over 100 different vehicles.
Streamlined Design - Since the unit is mounted directly to the wall above the door, there is no unsightly rail stretched across your garage. Also, if your garage has ceiling beam support interference, you won't have to cut ceiling joists to attach the rail, as in the case with traditional openers.
Soft Start/Soft Stop Control - Rarely found in other openers, this control smoothly opens the door as it starts, and gently lowers the door as it closes. This feature greatly decreases wear and tear on the door, and eliminates noises due to jolting starts and closes.
Automatic Travel Limit - The system will automatically compensate for changes in temperature and floor level variations to allow the door to seal properly. This eliminates having to adjust the door yourself.
UL Listed - Wayne-Dalton is the first and only Manufacturer to earn the UL 1998 Listing Mark for garage door openers. Integrated Operating System - The opener does not exert a driving force on the door to close it, as do traditional openers. Instead, it actually senses any unusual force as the door moves. This highly-sensitive design creates a system that provides the maximum in garage door safety, thereby helping to avoid injury to family, friends, pets, or damage to vehicles.
Door Closing Delay Button - Gives the user 10 seconds to walk out the garage safely before the door starts to close. Active Door Position Sensing Capability - Constantly monitors position of moving door in case a quick reversal is necessary. Electronic Systems Monitoring - Automatically monitors for operating malfunctions, alerts homeowner with a flashing light.
Secure Locking - The idrive opener makes forced entry nearly impossible as it has an automatic door lock. At the end of every door close cycle, the motor rotates down into a locked position on the garage door. If an attempt is made to lift the door, its weight causes an out-of-balance condition to the springs, rotating the motor even tighter against the door.
Rolling Access Codes - The idrive opener uses sophisticated rolling code technology to prevent code stealing. Every time you operate your opener, it resets the access code. With literally billions of combinations, it is virtually impossible for a thief to steal your code and break into your home with a code-grabbing device.
Energy-Efficient Security Light - Automatically lights when the opener is activated. Stays on for five minutes for safer, easier entry into the garage and home. It can also be turned on independently of the opener itself for lighting convenience.
