Like many people we wanted to add LEDs to our garage door opener, the performance and longevity just make sense. Unfortunately, after installing new LED bulbs in our Chamberlain garage door opener, we noticed a problem. The reliability and wireless range of our garage door opener remotes had gotten significantly worse.

Of course, it seemed like signal interference might be a factor, but the source of the interference wasn’t immediately obvious. After considering a few other possible sources, we set out in search of GE’s garage door LED lightbulbs at the local home improvement store.

Initially, I was shocked at the price – even for LEDs. However, as I picked up the packaging to understand the justification for the existence and cost ($20/pair) of LEDs, I got the answer for the cost and the solution to my problem.
