Car and mobile phone technologies continue to grow and adapt to the latest innovations, and garage door openers are no different. Manufacturers are always looking to address common garage door issues, like when you lose your garage door opener remote or when you forget whether you have closed your doors. With the power of updated hardware and a Wifi connection, you can upgrade your system to a smart garage door opener.
With LiftMaster’s myQ technology, you can make your garage door opener (most brands made after 1993 are compatible) smart. The myQ app allows you to control your home’s largest access point from the convenience of your phone. Below are some of the top features:
- Always Know When Your Garage Door is Open
The myQ app will let you know what the status of your garage door is. If you notice that it is open when it should not be, you can close it with the touch of a button – wherever you are!
- Get Alerts When Your Garage Door Opens and Closes
To get confirmation of the daily comings and goings through your garage – like when the kids come home from school – you can receive alerts when your garage door is used.
- Schedule Closing Times and Control Your Lights
Avoid any stress of knowing when your doors are closed by setting a time each day for your garage doors to close. Also, myQ light control allows you to preset days and times for the garage lights to turn on or off. This can be helpful for your home’s security when you are away on a trip.
- Receive Amazon Orders Right in Your Garage
Tired of worrying about porch pirates or leaving packages in the rain? If you are an Amazon Prime member, you have the ability to receive in-garage delivery by connecting your myQ App with the Key by Amazon App. You can securely receive your Amazon orders in the safety of your garage!
There are a few ways you can make your garage door opener “smart.” If it is already Wifi-enabled, be sure that it’s connected to your internet and you can download the myQ app now. If it is not Wifi-compatible, you can purchase the myQ Smart Garage Hub to connect most garage door opener models to Wifi. Ask a trusted garage door service to help you install it!
