Chamberlain RJ0101 Garage Door Opener Review

January 24, 20243 min read

Hey everyone, TJ here from Sanctified Homes, and today I'm excited to share my experience with a game-changing garage door opener: the Chamberlain RJ0101. This isn't just any garage door opener; it's a smart, efficient, and space-saving solution that's transforming how we think about garage door openers.

Introducing the Chamberlain RJ0101

The Chamberlain RJ0101 is a jackshaft garage door opener, a type of opener that's mounted on the wall next to the garage door. This design eliminates the need for the traditional overhead opener and the accompanying bar, freeing up ceiling space and reducing noise.

Design and Installation

The installation process, while requiring a bit of time and the right tools, is straightforward. I spent around 2 hours installing it, with the longest part being gathering all my tools. One unique tool you'll need is a metal step flashing bit, necessary for installing the automatic locking mechanism – a great safety feature.

Features and Functionality

Quiet Operation

One of the standout features of the Chamberlain RJ0101 is its quiet operation. Compared to traditional chain-driven openers, the noise level is significantly reduced, making it a great choice for attached garages or those under bedrooms.


With its wall-mounted design, the RJ0101 opens up space on your garage ceiling. This space can be used for additional storage, especially beneficial for garages with high ceilings.

Battery Backup

The opener includes a battery backup, ensuring that you can still operate your garage door even during a power outage. The battery is trickle-charged while plugged in, offering up to 12 hours of use.

Smart Features

Being a smart garage door opener, the Chamberlain RJ0101 can be controlled and monitored via a smartphone app. This adds a layer of convenience and security, allowing you to operate your garage door from anywhere.

My Experience with the Chamberlain RJ0101

After installing and using the Chamberlain RJ0101, I can confidently say it's a fantastic investment. The quiet operation is a noticeable improvement, and the additional ceiling space is a welcome bonus. The installation process, while requiring some specific tools, is manageable for anyone with a bit of DIY experience.

Performance and Reliability

The opener performs reliably, with smooth operation and consistent functionality. The automatic locking mechanism is a great safety feature, adding an extra layer of security to your garage.

Cost Consideration

Priced at around $500, the Chamberlain RJ0101 is an investment. However, considering the features, convenience, and space-saving design, it's a worthwhile investment for anyone looking to upgrade their garage door opener.

Conclusion: A Worthy Upgrade

The Chamberlain RJ0101 Garage Door Opener is more than just a tool; it's a modern solution for a common household need. Its combination of quiet operation, space-saving design, and smart features make it an excellent choice for any homeowner looking to upgrade their garage door system.
