PowerMax 1500 Genie PowerMax® 1500 Garage Door Opener   Giveaway

The folks at Genie Garage Door Openers are offering one of our lucky readers a FREE Genie PowerMax 1500. If you’ve got an older garage door opener then you’ll really want to enter this giveaway. Genie’s new garage door opener is full of great features and it’s really easy to install. Check out some of the features below:

PowerMax® 1500 (rails included)

Key Features

  • 1 HPc 140 Volt DC motor and direct drive screw offer powerful, smooth operation while keeping noise to a minimum
  • Compatible with almost any residential garage door
  • SmartSetTM programming allows for fast and easy set up
  • Auto seek technology reduces interference

Industry Leading Safety Features

  • GenieSenseTM Monitoring and Diagnostic Technology that minimizes noise, wear and tear on the door, while improving overall safety
  • Comprehensive Safe-T-Beam auto reversing system
  • Intellicode® 2 (a new generation superior encryption system) automatically changing the access code every time you use it to prevent unauthorized persons from opening your garage door

Installation

  • DIY install project
  • Genie’s YouTube channel offers how-to videos on programming your opener and changing the opener’s speeds

Please note: The PowerMax 1500 is the DEALER EQUIVALENT of the TriloGTM 1500. That means that if you were to buy this exact same opener from a garage door dealer, it would be called TriloGTM 1500 — but it is the EXACT same opener. All of the programming videos on Genie’s YouTube channel show the TriloGTM, so keep that in mind

Closed ConfirmTM Remote/Network Adapter Combo

    I like that it has a 1 HPc 140 Volt DC motor and belt drive that offer powerful and smooth operation while keeping noise to a minimum

  2. Matt Laski says:

    I’m most interested in the fact that the door would actually close properly with this opener, my current one has problems closing evenly and usually leaves a gap on one side or the other where the door closed crooked. The single feature that is most interesting is the remote door closure confirmation feature (green lights and tones). Sounds interesting.

  3. Andrew Gordon says:

    i like how silent it is.

  4. Kevin Ronningen says:

    The SmartSetTM programming which allows for fast and easy set up sounds the most appealing to me. Anything that is easy to install and easy to program always makes my life easier. Looking forward to learning more about the Genie PowerMax 1500, and hopefully installing one in my garage soon!

  5. Mike S. says:

    I think I like the fact that its so quiet the best. Nothing annoys me more than being woken up when my wife comes home after working a midnight shift by our 20 year old garage door opener grinding, rumbling, and clanking away.

    I’m subscribed to your email list with the email address I used to leave this comment.

    I would like you on facebook, but I won one of your facebook giveaways and never got the prize, so I figure those are run by someone else and its not worth the click.

  6. Sue D says:

    I like that it confirms it is closed and the access codes change.
    I am a newsletter subscriber.

  7. Julie D says:

    I like that it’s new, considering my garage opener is so old. It’s also super quiet too, which would be nice since my bedroom is next to the garage!

    I subscribed to your newsletter via email.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  8. paintergal says:

    1. I am a fan on facebook and made a comment.
    2. I already receive your newsletter via email.
    3. I like the Intellicode feature that changes the access code automatically. Cool feature.

  9. James says:

    We bought a house with a Genie garage door opener that was installed in 1979 and it’s still going strong! I think the belt drive on the PowerMax 1500 would be much quieter so we would look forward to that feature.

  10. Paul B says:

    I lke the intellicode and backward compatability. I already recieve your newsletter.

  11. Annette D says:

    I like the Intellicode® 2 feature, sounds very secure!

  16. mickeyfan says:

    What do I like the most about it? The fact that it IS a garage door opener. I currently don’t have one, and that stinks in this part of the country in the winter!

  17. Valerie Taylor Mabrey says:

    warning tone and flashes red when garage door does not close properly

  18. Marc S says:

    I like the security feature of automatically changing the access code after each use.

  19. Katharine D says:

    I love the Closed ConfirmTM Remote/Network Adapter Combo – I am always having to check to make sure I closed it as I am a frazzled Mom with too little sleep and too much noise from the back seat. This would be an incredible feature to have in a garage door opener

  20. Ed Daum says:

    I like the Safe-T- Beam system. We have an older system with no safety equipment and a 3 year old child (and a 10 year old golden retriver) who have both freightened us a few times by running under the door when it is closing. Need this system to prevent accidents.

  21. Kristy T says:

    I love that it’s quiet! Thanks for hosting!

  22. Mari says:

    I like that the Intellicode technology changes the access code every time you use it to prevent unauthorized persons from opening your garage door. I like the safety features.

  23. Jill L says:

    I love that the 1 HP 140 Volt DC motor and belt drive offer powerful, smooth operation while keeping noise to a minimum. Our current garage door opener is so loud.

  24. Bruce says:

    I like the idea of changing access codes each time.

  25. Mike Whaley says:

    I like the full HP for a smooth open and close.

    *I like the ability to change access codes. With my garage opener, I would have to keep my truck locked as afraid someone would open our garage through our clicker in our vehicle.

  30. Tom Medina says:

    I like the closed confirmed TM Remote. If you have ever driven off and left your door open, you would too!

  31. clynsg says:

    I would like the Close Confirm–I often have second thoughts about whether I had closed the garage door or not!

  32. Debbie C says:

    My favorite feature is the Closed ConfirmTM Remote/Network Adapter Combo because I always have to look back or worse DRIVE back to make sure the door is closed.

    chrisdeglen(at)gmail(dot)com

  33. Rich says:

    I like the possibility it will eliminate the annoying, constant hum from my current opener.

  34. Gillian says:

    Love the silence!

  35. Rick Blanford says:

    Since I work in IT security for a living, I am especially excited that they bumped up their encryption algorithm called Genie® Intellicode® 2 technology that makes it nearly impossible to crack.

  36. David says:

    I like the Genie because it is compatable with older garage doors.

  37. melissa Resnick says:

    how quite it is

  38. Ken McFarland says:

    I’m a subsriber already and I like the “direct drive screw offer powerful, smooth operation while keeping noise to a minimum”

    Low noise is always a plus with garage door opener. Since
    my current one just died. Winning this one would be fantastic.
    It’ll be replacing a terrible chain drive unit that was very loud.

  39. Erica C. says:

    I like how little noise it makes while in operation.

  40. Carol Foster says:

    I like the fact that it can control three garage doors since I presently have three and need three different openers

  41. shawna says:

    I like how quiet and the closed door confirmation!

  42. Breanne says:

    I like how quiet it is.

  43. carol y l says:

    I like the “•Intellicode® 2 (a new generation superior encryption system) automatically changing the access code every time you use it to prevent unauthorized persons from opening your garage door”. This sounds really good. We do not have a garage door opener but it sure would be nice!

    The feature I like best is that it gives warning tone and flashes red when garage door does not close properly…I call that peace of mind. :-)
    I like you on Facebook (Jaque Richards)and left a wall comment. :-)

  47. Beth Swanson says:

    I like the quiet operation of the Genie opener.

    We had two old (1970′s) garage door openers and recently replaced one that broke several months ago. The new opener is great, but I’m afraid the other old one is going to kick the bucket any day now!

  48. Kendra Gillilan says:

    Operates up to three garage door openers–love that

  49. Pat Cipolla says:

    My garage door opener was put in in the 80’2 and this new one you have would be much quieter and efficient

  50. Deborah Wallin says:

    I like the Safe-T-Beam® infrared beam system that senses objects in the door’s path to prevent entrapment

  51. Diane Baum says:

    I LOVE the closed confirm remote and wish we has something like this now. Our old door doesn’t always close all the way!

  53. Megan Cronin says:

    I like that this garage door opener is supposed to be quiet and safe for the doors. We’ve never had an automatic garage door and we would love to have one like this!

    I liked the Facebook page and commented on the post about this giveaway. I subscribed to the email.

    Thanks!

  54. Valeen N says:

    I really like the Closed ConfirmTM Remote/Network Adapter Combo! That’s always a fear of mine, driving off and leaving the garage door open.

  55. Steph A says:

    The feature I like best is that it changes the access every time you use it for home security and safety!

  56. Lauralyn Ward says:

    I really like that the noise level is controlled. That is such a useful feature when the garage is below a bedroom.

  57. Amy DeLong says:

    the closed confirm would save me lots of time
    ardelong2(at)gmail(dot)com

  58. I like the fact that it would be free if I won. :) and that it would not make near as much noise as my current one that needs to be replaced.

  59. Thomas Gerber says:

    I like that it gives visual and audible alerts when the door doesn’t close properly.
    I like you on Facebook.
