Securing your property with an automatic gate is a smart way to protect your physical assets and your family’s well-being. However, your automatic gate will need a gate-opener system to function.
Luckily, today’s gate openers include state-of-the-art designs, all-encompassing safety features, and an upgraded user experience that ensure smooth operation. They’re an essential part of all automated gates, especially swinging or sliding ones.
Over 11 million housing units are secured by either walls or gates, many of which have automated features. Eagle Operators and LiftMaster are two popular gate operators that have gained attention for their reliability over the years. Both gate operators have top-notch opening systems, but how are they different?
Continue reading to learn about each operator’s distinct traits, pros, and cons, and make the right choice for your property.
What sets them apart?
Choosing the most suitable gate-opening system for your gate is a wise investment for your safety and finances.
Installing an automatic swinging or sliding gate operator can increase your property’s safety and value — especially if it’s supported by a quality operator. Eagle Operators and LiftMaster are companies with a reputation for quality products at affordable prices that work effectively with almost any automatic gate.
But what sets them apart?
Troubleshooting and Customer Services
Eagle Operators have a team of technical support experts available to deal with any technical challenges customers might face. Plus, you can contact Eagle Operator’s customer service and ask them for a suggestion if you aren’t sure about which gate opener to buy. Simply go to the company’s website and fill in the contact form, or speak to a technician. Whichever approach you choose, rest assured you’ll get the help you need.
When it comes to LiftMaster, the company does not offer any immediate technical support. Users report delays when trying to reach their customer service, but your inquiries will be tended to, nonetheless.
Ease Of Use
Eagle Operators gate openers are equipped with control boards and remote controls that make using the openers super easy. You also won’t have to buy extra accessories to make the most of the gate opener — everything you need is provided in the initial set.
One of the perks of using Eagle Operators’ gate openers is the Diamond Control Board, the ultimate featureful control board that’s user-friendly and fully adaptable. Plus, you can find the installation manual online for a smooth installation process and simple troubleshooting.
What separates the LiftMaster gate openers from the competition is their compatibility with the HomeLink 4.0 system. For full access to LiftMaster’s features, you can always buy a Compatibility Bridge if your car doesn’t use the abovementioned system.
All in all, both gate openers are easy to install but should you have any issues, you can always find both manuals online.
Price matters, especially if it’s in line with all the perks offered by the gear.
Let’s start with Eagle Operators. For an Eagle-1 slide gate operator featuring two wireless remotes and a receiver, you can purchase a ½ HP gate opener for $1299. On the other hand, a similar model slide-gate opener by LiftMaster will cost you around $1560. Though this is more pricey than the Eagle Operator, customers love their reliability and length of use.
