This unit is so quiet that the neighbors don't know when I'm coming or going...

To be honest, I watched a professional install it. This opener replaced a 30 year old unit that was so noisy the neighbors complained. This unit is so quiet that the neighbors don't know when I'm coming or going. Delighted with my state-of-the-art garage door opener!

I was pleasantly surprised by the pricing... and the features were all I could ask for.

I was pleasantly surprised by the pricing at the time of purchase. ($168) and the features were all I could ask for. It is amazingly quiet, probably due to the rubber belt drive. I installed it alone, in about 2 1/2 hours. Which included removing the old chain drive model, and photo-eyes, wall control, etc. The two new remotes are pre-programmed which I found really convenient. It also has two light bulbs, which accept newer style lamps. Wiring is easy with push style connectors, instead of screw type. Adjusting was also easier than other units I've installed in the past as well.

This remote control works perfectly.

Best Purchase Ever for my old Genie garage door. This product is very easy to do the programming. Although my powerhead is the old model Intellicode (probably manufactured prior to 1995), this remote control works perfectly.

Love my new garage door opener...

Love my new garage door opener. There are some features I like a lot one being the opener button near my inside door. I can turn the light off and on as I need it. My old one I had to open the door for the light to come on and the wait for the light to go out. This one I can do it almost instantly. Saves electricity. I just wish it were a little quieter. I guess the next model up would have been better, but I bought what I could afford.

The unit was super easy to install and it is amazingly quiet... The integrated wifi is awesome!

The unit was super easy to install and it is amazingly quiet. The integrated wifi is awesome! I can open and close the door remotely and better yet can tell if the door is open or closed at any time. The system lets me know on my smart phone when it is opened or closed each time it is operated. This feature gives me peace. I can also go to the application on my phone before I go to bed and know that its closed without having to leave the bedroom. The unit also came with an outdoor remote so if I don't have a phone or if someone needs to get in they can enter the combo and they have access.

MrBill | February 02, 2016

Nice job Genie folks...

After 23 years my Genie screw drive opener decided it was tired and gave up the ghost. Went to Home Depot and looked over what they had and thought this SilentMax 1000 sounded like it would work fine for my application. I’ve had chain drives, screw drives and tape drives but never a belt drive but thought it should quiet with a belt. Just hope the belt lasts a long time, which it should since it’s steel reinforced. This was definitely the easiest installation of an opener I’ve ever done. Went together easy, mounted easy and setup was very easy. Some things actually do get better over time. The first time I used it I was very surprised by how quiet it is. So if you worry about not hearing the door open in the middle of the night, this thing is probably gonna make you worry a lot more. A nice feature that should have been implemented years ago is the front facing light bulbs. Most people walk to the front of their vehicle to enter their home and now I can see. Also like that the door slows down as it closes and opens to it full extent. Doesn’t have the abrupt stop action like before. Nice job Genie folks.

This opener is the best I have ever had. I had it professionally installed by the Home Depot. This unit looks great, is quiet, and fast. It gently starts, then speeds up, then gently slows down to close. I'm thrilled!!

I never have to wait to pull in my garage anymore...

Recently I drove off before my garage door had completely closed. It reversed on a broom handle and left my garage door open and the entrance to my house exposed. I found out that the Genie Company makes a closed confirm remote. I purchased it for my Genie Trilog 1500 garage door opener. It works with the Network Adapter that I plugged into the back of the motor. Now, after I push the button on my remote, and I back my car out, the remote beeps and a light flashes, confirming that my door has closed all the way. As a side note... I've had no problems with my Genie Trilog opener since it was installed 5 years ago. My previous opener, a Genie Belt Drive Stealth, worked great for 15 years and never broke. I upgraded to the Genie Trilog because I wanted one that opened my door fast. I never have to wait to pull in my garage anymore. As a precaution, I installed a computer battery backup above the motor. These motors have circuit boards like a computer and I don't want to take any chances on lightning or power surges burning something out. Also, my wireless keypad quit working. I went online and found instructions to reset it and now it works great again.

This garage door opener works really well...

This garage door opener works really well. It's a lot quieter than others that I've seen and it also moves pretty fast. I got mine installed by Home Depot and the technician did an excellent job. It's a really good price for what you get. I love that it comes with two remotes and a wall unit for outside the garage. Now I can go bike riding without having to bring my house key with me! Oh, and there's also a way to operate the garage door opener in case the power goes out. Cool.

The new remotes work just as they should...

I just activated the two remotes that I recently purchased and everything went well. With my particular opener I needed to open up the light lens to get to the button that reads the new code.... A short step ladder and a screw driver. The whole thing took me about 5 minutes... very easy. Unless you are keeping your old controllers you will want to erase the old codes first and then program the new remotes in. Both steps are spelled out in the instructions (step 4 and step 2) and only require pressing a couple buttons. My old remotes were worn out and were a hassle. The new remotes work just as they should.

The soft close/open feature is great... It is also very quiet...

If you follow the instructions it is easy to install. The belt is contained inside the rail so it doesn't sag like other current belt drives. The soft close/open feature is great for setting the door to close tightly. It is also very quiet....the door hinges and springs make more noise than the opener motor.
