How far away can you operate the remote from your car and have the door
My Stanley openers finally quite and I could only open it about 30 ft from
the door some days I had to be almost 10ft away.
I can't decide on a Genie fast open ( screw drive) or the belt drive
The screw drive slings grease on the outside of the door.
There are units that can operate the door from 1500' away,

standpoint you should be within visual distance from the door.
Personally, I would go for the Chamberlain operator.
I bought the Chamberlain, because of the fact that that's its belt driven
and quiet, and stayed away from the Genie because I don't want a line of
grease on the outside of the door from the rotation of the screw drive.
