Genie 1560 DirectLift 1/2 – HP Screw Drive
With its patented Direct Drive system, the Genie 1560 DirectLift 1/2 – HP Screw Drive uses fewer moving parts to lift even the heaviest garage door and the opener tends to be more reliable than chain drive models.
This garage door opener includes an automatic 120-watt lighting system and Genie’s patented six-part Safe-T-Beam package which meets or exceeds all UL, state, federal and CSA regulations.
The system consists of an auto reversing system that stops and reverses the door when the light beam is broken, for enhanced safety.
Genie Intellicode ® technology helps prevent unauthorized persons from opening your garage door by automatically changing the access code every time you use it.

Genie 1560 DirectLift 1/2 – HP Screw Drive Reviews:
When we were reading through the customer reviews on Amazon, we noticed that the Genie 1560 DirectLift 1/2 – HP Screw Drive model opener only had eight (8) reviews and they ranged from 1 to 5 in scope.
The two 5 star reviews stated that they simply had no problems with their Genie 1560, while two of the four 1 star reviewers stated that the Genie company would not stand behind their warranty without a receipt and a UPC code to show proof of purchase. They each had a 15 year warranty and both openers failed after 7 years.
Another reviewer stated that the Genie 1560 DirectLift 1/2 – HP Screw Drive model opener would not open his 8 foot by 15 foot garage door. A professional garage door installer inspected the installation and agreed that the opener was simply not powerful enough to lift the door.
If you decide to purchase the Genie 1560 DirectLift 1/2 – HP Screw Drive, be sure to keep your receipt and be prepared in case the opener fails after a few years.
