A full review of a wall mount Chamberlain RJO20 garage opener.

Chamberlain RJO20 is a wall mount garage door opener that is placed discretely on the wall beside the garage door and therefore enabling you a lot of functional space in the garage and on the ceiling. The wall mount design eliminates vibrations and noise and delivers a silent operation.

With a simple installation of the MyQ application on your smartphone, you will have full control of the garage door, receive notifications about its movements and also set schedules wherever you are. Furthermore, the Security +2.0 technology delivers unique encryption and protects you against any RF hacking. This is also complimented by the Automatic garage door lock that basically deadbolts the door upon closing.

Another great feature are the safety sensors, which protect both people and vehicles in cases when and obstruction occurs.

Users say

“The RJO20 is a great opener and I would recommend it to anyone who has a torsion bar/torsion spring setup for a garage door. It’s quiet, easy to install, and feels very well built.”

From Amazon

“This is a pretty excellent garage door opener. It is so super quiet, pretty much all I can hear is the rattle of my door – gone are the days of loud clunky overhead pieces. Operation is simple – both via the app and the regular buttons. The included remote works without additional pairing. App takes about 30 seconds to set up, and works perfectly. When you close the garage via the app, the garage emits a loud warning tone before closing to ensure that no one is in its way.”
