New Amazon Key and The Smart Garage Door.

Now more than ever it is advisable to include MyQ technology into your garage door opener and lifestyle. With LiftMaster smart garage technology, you can operate and monitor your garage door from anywhere with a smartphone app. MyQ enabled garage door openers are designed to keep you in control and aware of who has access to your home through your garage doors.  These new openers will lessen your stress in many ways by providing you with push alerts (in real time) when the opener is in use. You will be able to check if your door was left open and can be set to send you a notification if someone is tampering with the garage door. The app will alert you when the door has been left open, is being operated by another person such as when your loved ones get home from school or work and much more. You can also preset days and times for the garage door to close and open which is perfect if you have children coming and going. If needed, you can share access with up to 3 other people to the MyQ control. 

Another nice feature that MyQ and LiftMaster offer is the LED light that can also be set to activate on its own schedule.

The most recent upgrade is exciting and involves a partnership of Amazon. Ordering online has never been easier and package delivery is now stress free. No more worries about whether or not you will receive you packages safely. Now here in Austin, TX, eligible Prime members have access to Amazon Key with “In Garage Delivery”. It is super safe and as simple as securely linking your MyQ account with the Amazon Key app. No more worries about the safety of delivered Amazon packages and no more having to rearrange your life simply to receive packages.

According to reviews on the MyQ website the app is easy to use and customers are grateful for the reminders and alerts.

If your garage door opener is not WiFi capable that’s ok.  LiftMaster manufactures an upgrade kit that can be installed to update your system to MyQ.
