Home automation is all the rage these days. If you’re ready to jump on the bandwagon, then you’ve come to the right place! We’ll walk you through how to begin your home automation journey with MyQ Technology from LiftMaster. All new LiftMaster motors come with automation capability. Here’s what that means for you.

 

Control Your Garage Door Remotely

We've all been there before. You're halfway across town when suddenly, you can't remember if you closed the garage door. With MyQ technology, you can monitor and control your garage door from anywhere you have access to the internet.

 

Open and Close Garage Doors

MyQ makes it easy to let the pet sitter into the house while you’re on vacation. With the MyQ app, you can open and close your garage door with the touch of a button.

 

Open and Close Gates

Having guests over can be a hassle if you have to explain how to open your gate. Do it for them remotely with the MyQ app!

 

Preset Garage Door Schedule

If you don’t want to worry about manually closing your garage door every night before bed, simply use the scheduling feature to program your garage to shut at a certain time.

 

 

Operate Accessories from Your Smartphone

Wouldn’t it be convenient to be able to control conditions in your garage from anywhere? Now you can with the MyQ app and MyQ accessories.

 

Turn Lights on and Off

You can use your MyQ app and compatible accessories to make it appear that someone is home while you’re away. And if you forget to turn off the garage light before you leave home or crawl into bed, no worries! Simply use your phone to shut it off from wherever you happen to be.

 

Adjust Temperature

MyQ technology allows you to adjust your garage’s thermostat to ensure the perfect temperature at all times. This feature is especially handy when you take advantage of LiftMaster’s Smart Partnerships.

 

 

Monitor the Safety of Your Garage

Your garage is a part of your home. It’s important to keep it safe! Keep tabs on the condition of your garage with the MyQ app and MyQ devices.

 

Check Door Status

If you just can’t remember whether you closed the garage door, you can use MyQ to check its status.

 

Receive Alerts

MyQ Technology allows you to receive real-time alerts when your garage door opens or closes. You’ll know exactly what’s happening at your home no matter where you happen to be.

 

View Live Video Feed

Take your monitoring up a notch with the MyQ app and compatible video accessories. MyQ Technology enables you to view live video of your garage from your smart device.
