For the person that spends a lot of time in their garage, the WLED garage door opener features Corner to Corner Lighting™ to illuminate your entire garage. The purpose-built, long-lasting LED system is engineered to deliver daylight-like light to every corner of your garage, allowing you to do more in the space. Complete with built in Wi-Fi and powered by myQ® technology, homeowners will have the ability to open and close their garage door from anywhere and will receive alerts if its left open. The WLED also comes complete with an integrated battery backup system which keeps the opener working in a power outage, so homeowners and their families can still get in and out. For more information, visit www.liftmaster.com/led-light-garage-door-opener/p/WLED.
