The home of the future isn’t in the future anymore. Today, many homes are outfitted with many smart devices. From digital assistants to remote-access locks, homeowners have plenty of choices when they want to make their lives easier and safer with technological advancements.
Garage door systems are no exception. One product, myQ for garage doors, is one of the latest gadgets that people have started to request by name when upgrading their garage door systems.
What Is the LiftMaster myQ?
The myQ system is a Wi-Fi-enabled, subscription-free garage door opener that can attach to any new or existing garage door. After professionals install the wireless garage door opener, the corresponding cloud-based app allows you to monitor your door and control when it is open or closed.
By adding a myQ garage door system, homeowners can improve the way they use their garage doors and minimize risks associated with what is likely the largest entry to their homes.
Benefits of myQ Garage Door Openers
If you’re comfortable with your standard garage door opener, you probably don’t think about all the ways that a garage door opener with myQ could improve your life. Here are just a few of the advantages to having an expert install a myQ opener:
- You never have to wonder if your door is open or closed: We’ve all had the uncomfortable feeling that perhaps we left the garage door open after leaving the house. The connected myQ app works on your smartphone to show you if the door is open or shut. That way, you can close it promptly if you forgot.
- You can open the garage door for petsitters or delivery people: Wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have to give out keys to your house? The myQ system can serve as a way to “buzz” anyone into your home upon their arrival. You can even schedule your garage door to open or close at certain times of the day to make the process even smoother.
- You can hook up the myQ with some current smart home devices: If you have a Nest device, your myQ app can work with it. Getting more mileage out of every smart gadget for your house makes sense and improves your efficiency.
- You can monitor two garages: Some families have more than one garage. The myQ app enables you to have complete control over two garage door systems at once.
The Simple Setup of a myQ Garage Door Opener
Old-fashioned garage door openers may still work, but they don’t offer the same level of convenience or security that smart garage door openers can. Whether you want peace of mind or to impress potential homebuyers and encourage higher bids, think about adding a LiftMaster myQ garage door opener to your garage.
