Technology helps make our lives easier and these days it seems that there’s an app for everything! From getting food delivered straight to your door to keeping track of your health—our smartphones give us incredible power from the palm of our hands.
Have you ever left the house in a rush and then panic that you didn’t shut the garage door in your frenzy to leave? Or left for vacation and had to call a neighbor to check to make sure it’s closed? By opting for a smart garage door opener that’s connected to your cellular device, you’ll gain back control and peace of mind that your garage and home are safe. Amega Garage Doors and Openers provides and services openers that are compatible with the app.
What is MyQ Garage & Access Control App?
The MyQ Garage & Access Control App from LiftMaster/Chamberlain is an easy-to-use application that connects Wi-Fi-enabled garage door openers to your cellular device. The app allows you to check the status of your garage door at any time. It gives you the ability to open, close, and check the status of your garage door from anywhere.
Benefits & Features of a Smart Garage
Garages are often the first entry point to our homes. They keep your bikes, cars, and other valuables safe and secure. Accidentally leaving it open during the day or at night could potentially be dangerous for your things and your family. By using a smart garage door, you can rest assured that you and your family are safe from unwanted intruders.
Keep track of who is coming and going in and out of your home with real-time alerts. Get reassurance that your kids made it home safe from school by turning on alerts for garage door activity. MyQ also makes it easy to set up alerts when your garage door has been open for a certain amount of time.
Control From Anywhere
MyQ makes it simple to control access to your home from anywhere. Whether you are on vacation across the country or just running to the grocery store, you can always ensure you know what is going on at your house and that it is secure.
Another benefit of the MyQ app is the ability to set schedules. Go into night mode and close your garage door every night at the same time or set a schedule for when you leave for work so you never forget.
Sometimes you need to share access to your garage with family, friends or neighbors. MyQ lets you securely give limited access to up to five different users. You can set up and manage guest profiles to give permissions on when and how they can access your home. This makes it easy for anyone from grandparents stopping by to babysitters or even dog walkers!
Amazon Prime members have the added bonus of using their MyQ smart garage for in-garage package delivery. Amazon drivers receive a one-time code to access your garage to safely drop off packages to prevent missing or stolen deliveries and protect against damage and bad weather. Order groceries straight to your house and keep them safe from rain or get alerts when your latest online shopping delivery makes it to your garage. To use Amazon Key with your smart garage door, follow these steps:
- Make sure you link your myQ account in the Amazon Key app then,
- simply add items to your cart and
- choose “Key Delivery” before you check out.
Does the MyQ app work on all garage doors?
Most garage door opener brands are compatible with MyQ technology if the model was manufactured after 1993. At Amega, we are a proud LiftMaster Provantage dealer and all of the residential openers we sell have Wi-Fi capabilities and work with MyQ technologies. If you have an older model of garage door, don’t worry! You can still get connected by purchasing a MyQ smart garage hub. Chamberlain/LiftMaster offers tons of free resources and how-to videos online to get started.
