What says ‘Dad Gift’ more than a piece of technology? Dad loves that garage and he also works hard for us to not only provide but protect. So, when you give Dad a gift that protects his favorite place in the home as well as everyone and everything inside his home then it is a gift that will get a lot of use and he will always remember where it came from. The MyQ Garage from Chamberlain brings Dad and the family peace of mind that the largest entrance to your home is never left open and forgotten about.
Whether you have busy lives or have elderly family you check in on often, this MyQ Garage will show you if you have left your garage door open. It consists of a Wi-Fi Hub, Door Sensor and free app. Together they work so you can control your garage door from anywhere (in the world).
MyQ Garage works with most sectional garage doors that roll up (not the flip out). We have the roll up with the safety sensor low to the ground and it connected with ease. You need quality wi-fi in your home or building that the garage is attached to. Works with iPhones 3GS and above, iPad, iPod touch, android smartphones, most android tablets, windows and other devices.
The instructions are very easy to follow and once the hub is connected to your wi-fi you switch to the app to connect your existing garage unit to the MyQ garage. Chamberlain also has partnerships with some known names such as Nest Cam, SmartThings and Wink so you can easily create a well-connected environment for your home or building. Once set up there are no ongoing fees, you are ready to control your garage door from your device anytime.
I connected my hub and app and tested it out. The app shows you very simple images like below alerting you to whether your garage door is opened or closed and for how long (have a teenager? There’s no lying to you when they actually got home-lol). I love how simple the app is and what a great way to make sure your home or a loved ones home is truly secure at any hour of the day. There is no worse feeling than wondering if you remembered to close that garage door.
MyQ Garage is available at many retailers and online, visit Chamberlain MyQ to learn more and find a retailer in time for Father’s Day.
