Win-It Wednesday: Genie Garage Door Opener Prize Pack

by Tara Kuczykowski on October 12, 2011 · 942 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday, with 24-hour giveaways just for you!


Have you ever wondered if you remembered to close the garage door? Or have you ever worried about the safety of your garage door?  If so, then the Genie SilentMax 1000 garage door opener and its many new safety features will offer you peace of mind.

Not only does the SilentMax 1000 provide intelligent design for the homeowner that wants quiet performance with superior design and conveniences, it also offers some pretty amazing safety features like a comprehensive Safe-T-Beam system that meets or exceeds CSA regulations, an auto reversing system that prevents it from closing if something is in the way, and a superior encryption system that automatically changes the access code every time you use it to prevent unauthorized persons from opening your garage door.

The Genie SilentMax 1000 is so simple to install that my husband was able to put it up without assistance in about an hour. I have to say it definitely lives up to its name -- it's the quietest garage door opener I've ever heard (or not heard in this case). I was in the house and had no idea he was already testing it out!

I love the keypad entry system because it means I don't have to carry bulky keys with me when I go for a walk or to the park, and it's also great for those rare occasions when the kids beat me home from school. They just punch in our PIN number, and can let themselves into the house.

One of my favorite features is the optional Network Adapter. It's easy to get distracted when pulling out of the driveway with a carload of kids, so this handy little feature tells me at a glance whether or not I've remembered to shut the garage door. The Network Adapter remote will beep and flash green when closed properly or give a warning tone and flash read when not closed properly.

Today, one lucky Deal Seeking Mom winner will win a Genie Silent Max 1000 Garage Door Opener prize pack that includes:

  • One SilentMax 1000 Garage Door Opener
  • Closed Confirm 3-button Remote and Network Adapter Combo

To enter, tell me what your biggest safety concern is with garage doors.

my biggest fear is my family not being safe. We have a very unreliable garage door.

4 shanty October 13, 2011 at 8:27 am

Garage doors don't come with the on-the-wall locks anymore so it seems that if you lift hard enough, anyone can open them

5 Rhonda October 13, 2011 at 8:35 am

My biggest concern about garage openers is that someone may use a hanger to open it anyway. Does this garage opener prevent that?

6 Jenna October 13, 2011 at 8:44 am

I absolutly need a garage door opener. ours broke and we have to manually open and close it. winter is coming and that will be awful!!!

13 Dorothy F. October 13, 2011 at 9:35 am

The fact that it won't close if something is in the way. With a toddler this is great to have.

I am always afraid that I have left the garage door open....so I end up turning around and checking

18 Tricia P. October 13, 2011 at 9:41 am

Our garage is not attached to the house, it's off an alley way. I occasionally worry the door has been left open because we can't see it from the house and while no one could enter our home,. they could steal things from the garage or our cars.

One of my biggest issues with a garage door is making sure that it is always closed. Also making sure that it will stop if something/someone is in the way.

Our safety concern? We have an old manual garage door and its so dangerous as it is heavy and can drop on your head! We need to upgrade to this!

41 gina October 13, 2011 at 11:19 am

My biggest fear is my dog getting out out! The door from the house to the garage never closes fully so its super important that the garage door stays shut!

42 Julie October 13, 2011 at 11:25 am

We have never had a garage door opener and I would love one.
