When you take advantage of home automation and myQ technology, there are a number of situations you no longer have to worry about. MyQ technology from LiftMaster gives you complete control over your garage and provides unprecedented accessibility and security for your home. Check out these emergencies that your WiFi-powered garage door system can save you from, and then have myQ-equipped products installed in your home

 

I forgot my garage door opener!

We’ve all been there before. Whether you went out with friends or had a hectic morning, forgetting your garage door remote doesn’t have to be an emergency anymore. Simply use your smartphone and the myQ app to operate your WiFi-powered garage door without a separate remote. Your garage security is all at your fingertips—as long as you remember your smart device!

 

My kids left the garage door open!

Kids will be kids, and sometimes that means forgetting to shut the garage door. With the myQ app from LiftMaster, you can monitor the status of your garage door no matter where you happen to be. You can even set up a schedule for your door to open and close and receive alerts whenever your system is operated. Thanks to myQ, you can have peace of mind that your home is secured.

 

The dog sitter can't get into our house!

You're out of town and realize that you forgot to pass along the front door key to your dog sitter. Rather than going into an all-out panic, simply let your dog's sitter into your home via the myQ app on your smart device. Compatible devices enable you to view live video feed of your garage so you can rest confidently knowing that all is well back at home. 

 

It’s late and the garage is pitch black!

Late-night grocery runs can leave you in the dark with your hands full. Now you can simply turn on your garage light with your myQ app and compatible accessories. You won’t have to fumble around for the switch, and you can manage it all from the comfort of your car.

 

I’m out of town and don’t know what’s going on at home!

Between the control and monitoring features mentioned above and a number of other partnering automation programs, you can take control over the condition of your home no matter where you are. The myQ app works with a number of smart device partners, including Google Home/Google Assistant, Nest, XFINITY Home, Alarm.com, Apple HomeKit, and Amazon Prime Key. A monthly subscription is required with most of these services, but with it comes a whole new realm of security and accessibility. With whole-home automation, you can adjust the thermostat temperature, turn lights on and off, and view live video feed. Even when you're away, you'll be in the know about what's going on at home.
