LiftMaster LA412DC Solar Double Swing Gate Operator Kit - Click to enlarge!

The LA412DC is a solar powered residential swing gate operator with Industry-leading power management technology – it delivers power when needed most for opening the gate and minimizes power consumption at all other times for best solar performance. Its DC motor provides soft start/soft stop operation, which promotes longer gate and operator life, as well as dependable performance. The LA412DC is capable of operating gates up to 16 feet long and weighing up to 850 pounds per gate leaf.

An on-board Security+ 2.0 radio receiver is included with the LA400DC, accepts up to 50 remotes or you can monitor and control your gate from anywhere with the MyQ® Technology using your cell phone (see manual). Exclusive from Chamberlain®, this provides a single remote control solution for gates and additional access points. Two 12V batteries and a 12V 10 watt solar panel included as standard.

The LA412PKGU Swing Gate Kit now includes the LMRRU Monitored Retro-Reflective Photo Eye, to meet the UL325 Standard.
