Did you know the first garage door operator was invented in 1926 by CG Johnson? It wasn’t until the 1970’s that they became widely used in homes, however.
Since then, the garage door operator has improved by leaps and bounds. Smart home appliances and devices are growing more and more popular. This is true for your garage door, as well. LiftMaster’s myQ app is designed to bring that smart technology to your garage door. The free app is available for both Apple and Android devices, and is standard on most of LiftMaster’s residential garage door operators.
What Can the myQ App Do?
LiftMaster myQ now offers the convenience of hands free use and makes it easier to monitor your home than ever before. Our customers in Durham, Chapel Hill, Cary, and Wake Forest are loving the options myQ provides and the additional home monitoring they have access to.
Here are a few of the app’s most popular features:
Link with Google Assistant – You may now link your garage door safely to your Google Assistant. Using voice commands, you can open and close the door, or ask if the garage door is up or down.
New Sound Notifications – A gentle toned alert from your phone now indicates that the garage door has been opened or closed.
Share access – Do you have a trusted pet sitter, family member, or repairman you would like to grant temporary access to? Just set up a guest profile and give your visitor temporary access to your home via the garage door for monitored entry and exits. You may add up to 5 guests.
Set a Schedule – With the ability to set the garage door to be closed or for the light to come on at a certain time, you’ll never have to worry about closing the garage door again. Set the garage door to close daily at 8pm, or whatever time is best for you. If you are away, you may also set a timer for the light to come on in the garage at any time.
Double Check Your Door – Can’t remember if you closed the garage door? Just check the app! myQ will tell you if your door is open or closed right from your phone.
Receive Amazon Deliveries – Use the Key by Amazon feature to have your Amazon deliveries left securely inside the garage with the door closed behind the delivery person. Never worry about porch pirates again!
