Praised by Amazon shoppers, the extremely quiet Chamberlain WD962KEV has been called “the best garage door opener I have ever seen and not heard.” The unique belt drive allows this model to be quieter than either chain or direct-drive models. Additionally the unit comes with safety features like an advanced object sensor that immediately stops the door on contact, external keypad, and sensor-activated lighting. This model is compatible with HomeLink systems and can be controlled via smart phone. Available from Home Depot; $254.
