Has a solution been identified for Phantom Operation?  I installed mine this weekend and my garage door has opened every day this week.

We apologize you are experiencing Phantom Operation. There are a few things that can cause this type of problem. The most common causes are: possibly caused by a neighbor's remote being inadvertently programmed to your opener, a stuck button on a remote control, or a shorted wall-mounted door control sending unwanted signals to the garage door opener.

I have included troubleshooting instructions below:   Why does my garage door opener activate on its own?

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Any updated link available as this one no longer works.  Mine just started doing this last night.

I just got a Chamberlain B750 @ Home Depot to replace my killed LiftMaster. It goes up while I'm gone. Surprised I still have bikes.
I wish my old LiftMaster remotes would operate it.
Maybe my old LiftMaster wall button will work better than the smart + fancy crap ? No it doesn't.

This is real B$

When my stuff is stolen I'm suing Chamberlain + Home Depot.

Our garage door opener is less than 1-year old and I am experiencing the same issue detailed above. I am shocked to learn so many others are as well, yet it seems this issue has not been addressed. Will someone from support please reach out to me immediately as I fear my home’s/family's security is at risk.
