The Genie SilentMax 1000 garage door opener is the perfect option if your garage is attached to your home. This model comes with an industry leading 140V DC motor that is lighter in weight and provides ultra-quiet and smooth operation, so that your family will not be disturbed by a noisy garage door opener. The soft start and stop feature of the motor offers smooth garage door travel, an improvement over AC motors. It’s powerful enough for almost any residential garage door, up to 7 feet in height (or 8 feet with an extension kit sold separately). The SilentMax Genie garage door opener offers increased opening speeds, up to 9 inches per second, yet still has safety features for your peace of mind. The Safe-T-Beam system helps prevent accidents via an invisible infrared beam across the door opening, which reverses the door if an object crosses the beam of LED light. The beams are enhanced with diagnostic technology to alert you if a malfunction occurs. Even the lighting system in the SilentMax is geared toward your safety: the 2 Bulb Bright Lighting System has space for 2 100-watt bulbs (not included) and an innovative power head design that places the lighting toward the back of the garage where you need it most. Equipped with Intellicode Security technology, the SilentMax 1000 provides extra safety by preventing unauthorized access to your garage. Intellicode is a rolling code technology that automatically changes the access code on each door activation. The Genie garage door opener is fast and easy to install, with a premium reinforced low profile c-channel rail that presents a clean design to help protect against dirt and debris build-up. Flush-mounting capability allows for low headroom applications and requires no additional hardware for assembly. The Genie SilentMax 1000 belt drive garage door opener comes with a Limited Lifetime Motor and Gearbox , and accessories include two pre-programmed 3-button remotes, a Wireless Keyless Keypad and a Multi-Function Wall Console (Control Panel) with vacation lock and light control button. Genie’s SmartSet programming makes setup for the opener fast and easy, with the simple push of a button. Due to California Senate Bill No. 969, as of 01 July 2019 all garage door openers, sold to or installed at any residence in California, must have a battery backup system included. Please search for Genie battery backup to find one that is in compliance with this law.

  1. Pineapple

    Great unit.Bought this to replace bad motor on an existing unit already installed. Replaced myself rather than pay a garage door guy a ton of $ to travel out and diagnose the issue. Worked like a champ.

  2. Amazon Customer

    Incredibly quiet!Replaced an existing door opener, making install easier. I never knew these things could be so quiet and smooth. Using a wireless genie control panel replacing the wired one provided in the kit, so easy to setup! You won’t be disappointed.

  3. G. Christman

    Easily self installation after studying instructions before starting. All the bells and whistlesThe instructions could be improved

  4. open says a me

    It Works!First garage door opener I have ever had. Hired someone to install it.It works great, I love it. I am too old to be opening and closing garage doors. So I am happy that I got it.

  5. Joshua

    Doesn’t shake my house when I open the garage!I bought this to replace an ancient Craftsman door opener, and I’m stunned by how much quieter it is than the old one. It’s quieter than most of my battery operated power tools, for instance.Installation was a (relative) breeze. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The only thing that was a pain for me was there’s a pipe going right across the middle of my garage and it was a pain to get the track over it, but that’s not the product’s fault.The remotes have a decent range on them, and the door panel is wireless so you can put it anywhere, and easy to pair with the base unit.All around it’s an excellent unit, and it was an outstanding upgrade for me.

  6. Emily

    QuietVery quiet and easy to install. I love it.

  7. Kindle Customer

    Very quietThis door opener works very well. Installation took several hours. Used some of the old hardware. Needed to use Geenies motion detectors. Used the old wiring . Programming the individual car remote buttons is tricky. Got one done. Subaru recommends watching a specific video. Should be OK.

    Works great; quiet, but make sure you add surge protector to your outlet.I actually got this as a replacement for an identical unit that stopped working. Went through all the diagnostics, and ended up it was a the control board. Called Genie, and of course, the unit was only a couple of months out of warranty. To buy the board, it’s ridiculously priced at $140, so makes no sense – just buy a new one. Now I have spare parts like the belt, remotes, etc. Afterwards, did some research, and found a lot of folks had issues after a power outage – the spike when the power comes back kills the board – hence, putting in the surge suppressor. Picked one up for $7 at Home Depot that fits nicely in the ceiling outlet, and glows to tell you it’s working.There was one difference in this unit over the previous one. The older unit had “close confirm” remotes which had an LED that blinked & beeped to confirm the door is closed – nice feature as I’m usually halfway down the block when I get the beep so don’t need to hang in the driveway. Luckily, the module from the old unit plugged into the new one, so I was able to use my old close confirm remotes.I believe this feature has been replaced by something they call Aladdin, but it’s not a standard feature on the opener like the close confirm was.So works great, but took away a star for electronics that can’t survive a power outage, and omitting the close confirm feature, although the price is still the same.

    Silence is golden, what a wonder!Although not experienced installing garage door openers, the directions were easy to follow and the product is amazing! Quiet, easy to program in my car, and the outside keypad a great option for the kids! No more lost or misplaced remotes!
