A MyQ-Enabled Garage Door or Gate Operator allows you to easily connect to your home from anywhere in the world, so long as you have your smartphone in hand.

This revolutionary app, for both iPhone and Android, gives you both peace of mind and a sense of convenience (not to mention you can open/close your garage doors on demand from wherever you happen to be at any time).

When you add certain accessories to your MyQ garage door, you can:

  • Control your garage door and house lights with your smartphone
  • Get notified if your garage door opens or if you forgot to close your garage door
  • Know if your garage door opens while you're away

MyQ helps you stay close, stay connected, and stay in control of your home and garage. Now let's meet the MyQ accessories that make it all happen.

Internet Gateway Router

The router allows you to connect your garage door opener, gate opener and other MyQ accessories to the Internet, thus enabling your smartphone to become a control center for your devices.

Remote Light Control

MyQ allows you to control so much more than just your garage door. With the Remote Light Control, you can plug any lamp inside your house to the device and control it with your smartphone or garage door opener remote control (you'll need the Internet Gateway Router).

Garage and Gate Monitor

With your garage and gate monitor, you can monitor and close up to four garage doors or gates from any room inside your house.

Can I control my garage door with my smartphone even if it doesn't have MyQ Technology

It is possible for you to add MyQ smartphone control to garage door openers from LiftMaster, Chamberlain, Craftsman and Assurelink, even if they don't have MyQ Technology built in. All it requires is the addition of a MyQ Retrofit Package, called the MyQPCK, so long as these openers have safety photo eyes.

In fact, you can easily add MyQ smartphone control to virtually all other garage door openers in North America that have safety photo eyes. For major brands not listed above, MyQ Garage enables smartphone control of most major garage door opener brands.

It's time to take control over your garage door and home

Smart homes and devices aren't the wave of the future - they are the here and now. By being able to control devices through your phone and be notified of any breaches or unexpected activity, you can enjoy a greater peace of mind that your home, family, and prized possessions will remain safe and intact.

Sure, smart devices give you a great level of comfort and convenience, but in the end, the security measures associated with your smart devices simply can't be replicated anywhere.
