Amazon and Liftmaster MyQ Ensures Contact-Free, Safe Deliveries
Posted by Garage Door Specialist
The Liftmaster MyQ is a special feature launched by Liftmaster and Amazon. It provides a one-time access code you set for the day’s Amazon delivery so that packages can be delivered safely to your garage, even when you’re not home. The garage door is closed behind the delivery person and your package is safe and sound!
No one wants their Amazon packages piling up on the porch when they are out of town. Unfortunately, packages are commonly stolen right off people’s porches or doorsteps. Not to mention, the elements can damage your package if it is left in an area that isn’t covered.
This solves the problem and keeps your deliveries safe and dry! The Liftmaster MyQ is a solution for safe, contact free deliveries of amazon products. This feature has been available for well over a year after 72% of people surveyed said they take extra measures to ensure their Amazon packages are not stolen.
This was originally set up to allow safer delivery of packages when homeowners were not available to receive them. Now, it’s a way to ensure contact-free delivery, since the driver will not touch anything in your garage besides the package itself.
How Does Liftmaster MyQ and Amazon Key Work?
Homeowners must have the MyQ feature set up on their garage door opener as well as the Key by Amazon app, which takes minutes, and does not require any additional fees. When ordering through Amazon select “in garage delivery”. The day the package is delivered, you will see four notifications come through:
The package is en route
The driver arrives
The garage door has been opened
The garage door has been closed and the delivery is complete
To provide even more peace of mind, several safety precautions are taken. First of all, Amazon drivers must undergo a background check. They ensure they are at the correct home for package delivery with an encrypted authentication process. The driver is instructed not to leave the home until the garage door completely closes and is secure. In addition, you can monitor all activity on your MyQ app or in realtime on optional camera accessories sold separately.
