Since its inception, LiftMaster has participated in the annual International Door Association Expo. This year’s expo took place in Atlanta, Georgia. Over the course of 4 days, exhibitors and attendees participated in demonstrations, workshops and discussions at various locations around Atlanta.

If you weren’t able to make the trip or missed our team at booth 723, we’ve got all the latest updates below.


We enjoyed previewing our new Garage Door Automatic Lock. The product launches late this summer and is designed to add an additional layer of security to your home. When engaged, the Automatic Lock makes your garage door impenetrable. Additionally, the audible ‘click’ of the lock provides you with proof your door is secure. The lock is an additional accessory that will be available for three opener models.

Another feature was an update to our Firehouse access solutions line. We have upgraded the LED lights on the Red/Green traffic light. This upgrade makes the lights brighter and more visible to help decrease the potential for any accidents when quickly exiting the station. Keeping emergency personal safe as they rush to the aid of our communities is a high priority for LiftMaster.

If you’re a community manager, listen up! Our team held a demo of our brand new CAP XL. It’s a bigger, better version of our current IPAC. The larger screen makes finding resident information that much easier. Also, the unit connects to the LiftMaster Cloud so that you can manage the system from anywhere. Stay tuned for more information in the coming months.


Some favorite moments took place off the expo floor. Our team had a blast at the Exhibitor Hospitality Party at the Georgia Aquarium which we were proud to help sponsor.  The Garage Band ‘Mo Money’ was rocking and kept the party alive all evening.

We loved donating to this year’s 2017 IDA Tancil Horne Charity Award recipient, Just 1 Book. Donations were taken in the form of new or gently used children’s books and will be distributed to underprivileged youths in Central Florida. It’s always a great feeling to give back to local communities.

Another notable moment was receiving the 2017 IDA High Roller Distinguished Service Award. The award is given to a member or dealer in the industry for demonstrating innovation, integrity, honesty and quality. All of which we strive to provide in all aspects of our company each day. We were proud to have our Chief Customer Officer and other directors there to accept the award.

We truly enjoyed engaging with our authorized dealers, customers, and other industry experts and thank everyone who stopped by our booth. We look forward to seeing you next year!
