Exclusive CAME Gate Operators Integrate LiftMaster Technology and Performance with Superior Design Elmhurst, IL - August 2012 - LftMaster, the lindeing manufacturer of access automation in North America, has joined forces with Italy-based CAME Cancelli, the foremost producer of access automation in Europe, to unveil a new line of residential gate operators that deliver on design, technology and performance. LiftMaster will exclusively market three CAME-branded operators optimized with LiftMaster’s Security+ 2.0™ technology, providing the North American marketplace with innovative gate access solutions.
"CAME brings a new, unrivaled design to our current offerings and boosts our dealers’ ability to provide a wider array of solutions to their customers," says Jim Roberts, CEO of The Chamberlain Group.
On the new joint venture, Andrea Menuzzo, CEO of The CAME Group states, "This partnership was a natural fit – LiftMaster’s leadership position in North America provides CAME with a broader customer base, the right technology and service support. Coupling those strengths with our engineering yields a perfect blend of design and performance."
The CAME partnership demonstrates LiftMaster’s commitment to evolving the design and capability of its products. The Security+ 2.0 radio technology has been incorporated into selected ETL-approved 24V DC CAME residential gate operators: a slide gate operator, an underground swing gate operator and a column-mount swing gate operator. Along with its efficiency and security features, the Security+ 2.0 radio technology virtually eliminates interference, has up to double the range of standard remote controls for reliable and immediate access, and works with all LiftMaster Security+ 2.0 remote controls.
