The NEW Genie Residential Wall Mount Garage Door Opener is now available at authorized Genie garage door opener dealers. 

The all-new wall mount designed Genie garage door opener models 6170 & 6070 eliminate the traditional rail and powerhead design. These wall mount models attach directly to the garage door's spring tube! (Not compatible with reverse-wound, outside pick up spring cables, or with rear-mounted torsion springs.)

6170 & 6070 Wall Mount Models Offer: 

  • A Cleaner Look: Eliminating the rail and opener from the ceiling brings a clean and open look to your garage. This opens up more room for storage or other purposes. 
  • Compact: The Compact design fits into tight side room spaces between the garage door track and the wall. 
  • Headroom: Ideal for garages with overhead beam obstructions that prevent installing a traditional garage door opener. 

Often referred to as a residential jackshaft garage door opener, the wall mount models also include the newest Genie garage door opener accessories. Featuring the wireless wall console, Bluetooth LED light fixture and the door lock.

Model 6070: Both the Aladdin Connect smart capability and battery backup options can be added later to the 6070 wall mount model, but do not come standard with it.
