Given we are the ONLY Authorised Merlin Dealer in the Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Hunter Valley and Port Stephens Area you can be certain that all products are genuine. Merlin put a lot of time, resource and money into research and development to ensure that each and every garage door motor that is manufactured and sold is of the highest of quality and is compliant with current Australian Standard and New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 60335-2-95. It is important to choose a Merlin garage door motor from Macquarie Garage Doors as you do not want to end up with cheap models that are non-compliant as they may be a fire risk or safety risk which could cause damages to person or property and potentially void insurances if found to be at fault.


The most exciting product we are able to introduce into the market is the Merlin MyQ Smartphone Monitoring and Operating System. This is the latest and greatest addition to the already fantastic range of garage door motors. With this addition it gives you the ability to not only open and close your door but to also monitor its open or closed status, recieve notifications about the door operating and with multiple users of family and friends potentially added you can check the log to see who has operated the door 24/7 365 days of the year so long as wifi is connected to the Merlin MyQ Gateway at home. Another great incentive to upgrade to the Merlin MyQ motor is that it comes standard with our upgraded E960M Premium 2.0+ Remote controls and also the IR-Safety Beam Kit.

With the world advancing to mobile smartphone connectivity now is the time to upgrade to this fantastic and convenient and secure product!
