Let there be Light…and Savings!

LED lights are revered for their brightness, cost savings, and long life, however, traditional LED light bulbs can cause multiple problems for your garage door opening system. Some brands of LED bulbs can be are not designed for the harsh environment of the garage, suffering breakage and short lifespans. Some LED light bulbs can even interfere with radio frequencies, affecting the responsiveness or range of your opener’s remotes.

The Genie garage door opener LED light bulb is specifically designed for use in the garage and fits many popular garage door opener models and brands. The range of your remotes will not be limited with the long-lasting Genie LED light bulb as our lights create little or no radio frequency to interfere with openers. The garage door opener bulb is designed for ultimate performance in the harsher environment of the garage. These bulbs are cold weather tested and damp location rated to function without the many inconveniences associated with traditional bulbs. Genie’s LED bulb illuminates any garage down to temperatures of –30C (–22F) and is tested to withstand 5G of shaking force, which far exceeds normal garage door opener vibration force. Genie even tested the shatter resistance by throwing it off the roof and letting it fall four stories.

So Quiet, Your Teenager can Sneak in Past Curfew

You thought your daughter’s boyfriend was just being helpful when he gave you Genie’s Universal Garage Door Spray Lubricant for your birthday. Then he helped you apply the spray lubricant to your noisy door tracks, the screeching lift chain, and even that squeaky outside door hinge. It was only then that you realized homecoming was next weekend and your daughter had already asked for an extension of her curfew…

Garage doors & openers get a lot of use and over time need proper maintenance to ensure quiet, efficient operation. Lubrication on moving parts can help minimize wear and tear, saving hundreds of dollars in replacement costs over time. Genie offers three different types of lubricants designed specifically for garage door opener use.

This Universal Garage Door Spray Lubricant can be used with most style garage doors and helps maintain hardware to extend the life of your door. The universal lubricant is long-lasting, often only needing a single application to yield results. In addition to reducing friction on moving parts, the spray lubricant can help inhibit rust on metal components, all without harmful solvents.

Genie also makes a universal screw drive lubricant that can be used to lubricate the screw drive rail. Maintaining the screw drive with this high-quality lubricant can help extend the life of your opener and guard against operational damage from worn parts.

Finally, Genie has formulated a low temperature multi-purpose lubricant, known as Lubriplate grease. This low temperature lubricant can be used with most garage door openers, including chain-glide mechanisms and screw drives. This lubricant is a must if your garage remains unheated during the winter.

Park Perfectly, Every Time

Is your bumper inside the garage or still sticking out into the driveway? Can you walk all the way around your vehicle to get the groceries out of the back hatch? How close ARE you to your son’s extremely expensive set of golf clubs that he constantly leaves in the front of the garage? Answer these questions and more with Genie’s Perfect Stop Parking Indicator. With the easy-to-install system, just drive forward in your garage until the yellow ball touches the windshield, and you’ll know you’re parked at the same distance every time you enter your garage.

The foam parking ball is mounted to the ceiling and lowers into place when the garage door is opened. It can be retracted when the door is closed, so it isn’t in your way. Compatible with all garage door openers and safe for your vehicle, the Universal Perfect Stop System is simple but extremely effective.

Less Devices Means More Convenience

We all have too much technology to keep track of these days: cell phones, tablets, Bluetooth®, headphones, television remotes, air conditioner remotes, the list goes on and on. If you live in a gated community, that list may also include a gate remote to get you to your property and then a separate garage door opener remote to open your personal garage door. Wouldn’t it be great if you could use one remote to open the gate to your community AND your garage door? Genie thought so too, which is why we created the Genie 4-Button Universal Garage Door and Gate Opener Remote.

The Universal garage door opener remote made by Genie, is compact in size and has four programmable buttons to use for garage door openers and gates.  The remote is compatible with most major garage door opener and gate receiver companies (Genie®, Overhead Door®, LiftMaster®, Chamberlain®, Craftsman®, Sommer®, Linear®, Wayne Dalton®, Ryobi®, Guardian®, Xtreme® brand, and Marantec®). The Universal garage door and gate opener remote is easy to program, has multiple programming options, comes with a visor clip, and includes a keychain.

Open Says Me

Automatic garage door openers are perfect for your busy lifestyle…except when the power goes out. Don’t get stuck outside ever again with the Keyed Emergency Release Kit from Genie. A garage door emergency release lock is a necessity, especially if the garage door is the only entrance to your garage. The garage door emergency release lock is universally compatible with all brands of garage door openers, installs quickly, and easy to use. The release attaches through the top of the garage door and allows you to release the garage door opener manually with a key.
