I grabbed the Chamberlain belt driven opener when it was on clearance a while back. Still haven't installed as my current opener isnt broke yet. But would I need this in order to be able to close via my phone?

Thanks for pointing that out. I assume that's the unfortunate path we are going to be taking with all the smart home devices in the future. Subscription fees on top of subscription fees. We temporarily had a "no hidden fees" phase in the mid 2000s/ early 2010s during the "cut the cord" era but now cut the cord era has evolved into this current day "convenience fee" where paying a little more is becoming more acceptable.

I'm 100% against buying any product that I'm forced to pay monthly to use it, I don't consider owning that as it's more like renting. Those $4.99-$14.99 subscriptions add up quickly and majority of the time it comes from the "free trials" of something we tried once. Once people are charged for another month they think "meh, I may as well keep it for the month now since I paid for it"..... then forget again to jump through the million hoops to cancel it.

As long as people keep buying products that are locked to subscriptions companies will continue to force them on us and increase the fees once they feel people intergraded it in to everyday life.

VISA said in May they were changing the way they allow companies to charge after "free trial" is over. Companies will now be forced to get written permission AFTER the free trial is over, never before. They will have to seek permission before every charge, every month and can't force you to give permission in advanced just to use the service. This will help VISA to minimize chargebacks and maybe help us deal seekers in the future.

If you have a smartthings hub, you can indirectly get Google Assistant or possibly Alexa support. There is a custom device handler out there for it.
