Unreliable - Terrible Support - DO NOT BUYPosted .
I am electrical and computer engineer and was very excited to use this product. After three months of being disappointed, I returned it. Three of my friends have the same issue, they are unable to open or close the garage door from the app 90% of the time. I was locked outside of my garage since I decided to purchase this item instead of a replacement garage door opener. In theory it was a great idea but this item needs much more developing. Emailed support and they were not helpful. They suggested I re-install or update the app. No further troubleshooting done and I was left hanging after that. I have created my own solution with a WEMO Maker and a magnetic switch. The wemo maker works 100% of the times and took me 10 minutes to install. Not only do you gain reliability but it's also $40 less!! The magnetic sensor is optional but can be set up to send you alerts like the original MyQ setup if combined with IFTTT.

Great gadget!Posted .
This thing is awesome. Before buying I had few questions that I couldn't find the answer for on any of the reviews, I also called the MyQ company and was still not giving the answers I need, so I hope to answer the questions that others might have. First off my garage is finished (dry wall and all) so I really did not want to mount the device, did not want to drill holes, so my question was does it have to be drilled, the answer is NO. In fact I don't have mine in the garage, the company wants you to put in the garage for the flashing light and the alarm sound, but I use mine to just make sure it's closed when I'm away, so no need for the alarm in the first place, which leads me to the next question. Does the alarm sound when you close the garage door with the car remote or the keypad or or or? answer is NO, again the alarm only sounds and the light comes on ONLY when you use your smart phone to or use the online app to close the door. Alarm is loud but not as loud as some of the reviews make it out to be. Last question I had is the range, I have a 3 car garage with 2 doors, problem is I have 2 car garage on one side of the house and the 3rd car garage is on the other side of the house, would it reach with just a 2nd sensor or I need to buy another hub? answer is it does reach. That's another reason why I have the hub in the house to be in the center of both sensors, connects better to the WiFi network. I'm an OCD person and needed to take pics of my garage door closed when I went out of town, now I can just check my app and make sure it's closed. To upgrade my garage door opener was $450 each with installation, so for my setup it was $900, with this little hub and 2 sensors I was able to save $785 as I got it on sale from Best Buy. Also the sensors I didn't want to drill in my garage doors, so what I did was use the velcro it came with and added some external tape to keep it in place. Best of all, if we ever move, it is simple to take with me for the next house, unlike replacing the entire garage door opener.I would recommend this to a friend

Great product, be careful with IOS7 as of Nov 2013Posted .
I am very happy with this MyQ garage door opener and the install was very easy – except with Apple IOS 7. I followed the process several times and called the Chamberlain phone support. I give them kudos for being open on a Saturday and having short hold times but was annoyed by the typical script where you must answer questions unrelated to the problem just so the operator could get you to a tech. In the end the support person I talked to did not solve my problem. I ended up solving the problem myself. During the install you must connect to the device via Bluetooth and “Add the Wi-Fi hub to your Wi-Fi network” (more on this later). I did this several times and my iPhone app (with IOS 7) would always fail saying I had to enable Wi-Fi on the hub. I reset the unit several times trying to figure out what was going on. Finally I tried my wife’s iPhone that still has IOS 6 – worked perfect. Bluetooth connected, it updated the software on the MyQ Hub and everything worked perfect! I never did confirm with Chamberlain that this is a IOS 7 bug and probably by the time you read this it will be resolved. If not hopefully I saved you some frustration. Now, something I find interesting. When I used my iPhone to connect to the device and added the “Hub” to my network somehow the MyQ Hub obtained my Wi-Fi password from my iPhone. I never typed in my WEP Wi-Fi password in the iPhone app but when I look at my router DHCP lease table I see the MyQ listed with a valid IP address. I have searched online and have not found any reference to how you can transfer a WEP key using Bluetooth but somehow it must be possible. It is cool, very easy to set up. I guess it just sorta freaked me out that a device can learn my Wi-Fi password using Bluetooth from my iPhone. Now, how does it work? Fantastic! I have the app installed on my wife’s phone and my phone but have not tested Android (assume it works). The reason I purchased this product was the positive reviews and because I have a problem leaving my garage door open. Sometimes I will remember about a mile from home and have to drive back to check and close the door. Other times I just forget! I live in Minnesota and have a heater in my garage that keeps it at 45 degrees. Last year I drove to work at least 4 times during sub-zero weather and left the garage door open (garage heater ran all day). I figure I will pay for this product with reduced natural gas costs very quickly! I set up an alarm to send a push notification and email if the garage door is open for longer than 30 minutes. I have not fine tuned this time yet but figure I don’t want alarms going off when I am taking out the garbage so 30 minutes feels like a good setting. I tested it at 2 minutes and the alarms fired like they should. So far I have not left it open longer than 30 minutes. One feature I love is when you close the garage door with the application the MyQ hub flashes a bright light and sounds an alarm before closing the door. My Wife has the app installed as well and sometimes I may be working on a project and leave the door open on purpose. Now if my wife sees the garage door is open and decides to close it at least I will know it is going to happen and be able to override the open by hitting the wired opener. I have only had this opener a few days and I don’t normally write reviews. I am very happy with this product. I only share my frustration with IOS 7 to help others. I would definitely recommend the Chamberlain MyQ garage door opener.I would recommend this to a friend

Nice addition to a "smart" homePosted .
The myQ is a nice addition to any "smart" home. It gives peace of mind that the garage door is shut and alerts when the door is open and closed. The Chamberlain tech support people, while courteous, were not that much help with installation. Here's some lessons learned that will make your install much more easier: 1. go with the WPS option when connecting to your router. 2. after connection is established, add port forwarding for the myQ hub in router settings. The TCP port is 8883 and the UDP port is 2165. Go ahead and do this, even if you don't have any connection issues. 3. while the myQ hub only will connect to the 2.4ghz band, there is no need to turn off the 5ghz band on your router (unless router only runs on 5ghz band). 4. despite the manual saying to attach the hub on the ceiling and at least 2 feet away from the garage door opener, place the hub at the furthest location from the garage door opener that still allows for the system to work. I found that the closer the myQ hub is to the garage door opener, the better chance for radio interference from a regular garage door remote, keypad remote, or the homelink remote inside cars. And when there's interference, the myQ hub will drop the connection to the router and you're going to be re-setting and re-connecting again. The Android app is ok but could be improved. My biggest issue with the app is that there is no notification of whether or not the myQ hub is connected or disconnected.I would recommend this to a friend

Great Product - Almost Perfect Set UpPosted .
Bought this because I am always afraid I have left the garage door open. This solved my problem. There are basically two components. A sensor you attach to the garage door itself. It is a simple transmitter that senses when the door has changed from vertical to horizontal (open) and sends a signal to the second component. The second piece is the receiver and wifi gateway. Once you attach the Receiver near the opener, (NOTE: You have to plug the transformer into an electrical plug) and plug it in, it starts blinking a BLUE LED (there are a number of different color LED's that mean different things). Then, you start the Android or iPhone Chamberlain MyQ App, turn on Bluetooth and pair your phone with the MyQ and it walks you through the rest of the set up which asks permission to join your wifi network and registers the MyQ with the Chamberlain server. NOTE: It did not register with the server the first time. I unplugged the unit and started it again. This time, no problem, it linked perfectly and the rest of the process went perfectly. Once that happens, it asks you to link the Sensor on the Door to the system, asks you to push the LEARN button if you have a Rolling Code Opener and then attempts to open and close the door. Mine worked the first time, perhaps because I have a Lift Master, which is a Chamberlain company. Note that you should look at the Guide which is in the phone App. It will explain how to set up the Email or regular Notifications to your phone. The Alerts are very customizable. Also, if you want to edit how an alert works, you have to write an entirely new one and delete the prior one. There is no EDIT ability. I think the App could be fixed to allow this feature. I've only had the unit for less than 24 hours, so I'll update this review if there are any important things to let you know. And, I called Customer Service to find out if there is a battery in the Door Sensor. Julie was wonderful and knew the product very well. There is a small battery. I suggested they add this information in the Manual, which says NOTHING about changing the battery or what type of battery it is.I would recommend this to a friend

Love it. Very easy to install and setup.Posted .
Love it. I have the MyQ installed and used an extra sensor for the 2nd Garage Door. Haven't had any issues. Installed everything is about 10 minutes and it hasn't failed yet. Very reliable. Once I closed the Garage door with the regular Garage remote and it didn't update on the MyQ App so I got an alert that my door was still open but I just checked the Live Feed from my Garage CAM to verify it was closed and refreshed the MyQ App. I get notified when the Delivery Man pulls into my Driveway by the Ring Pro Doorbell and then Im able to open the Garage Door for him to set my package inside on the work bench. I then close the Garage door once he walks back to his truck. I have a CAM setup in the Garage so I know hes not stealing anything and I have the schalge fe599 door lever installed on my Garage door that leads into the house so I can make sure its locked. Everything is working well together. I use the SmartThings hub v2.I would recommend this to a friend

My favorite IoT Product so farPosted .
This little thing has consistently impressed me. It’s not close to my router but has only dropped off the network 2 or 3 times in several years. And for being relatively inexpensive, this has ironically been more valuable than almost any other product I’ve purchased. It’s saved me when I’ve been locked out of the house multiple times. It saved my dog three times when the garage door didn’t stay closed I had no idea and was headed across town... An identical unit I purchased for my elderly Mother let’s me know via notification every morning that she’s gotten up and gone out to get the paper and walk her dog; as someone who prefers not to be forced to speak for as long as possible in the morning this has been a Godsend! And finally, in October when I had my garage broken into in the middle of the night, my phone told me a split second before my Doberman did... and the combination of a ghost garage door closing and Mango's where did that come from impersonation of the Hound of Baskerville from the warm side of my utility door meant that the lousy jerks dropped almost every tool they tried to carry off as they ran in terror from my garage- the last one getting clotheslined by my little garage gremlin as he lowered the door for me! On top of that, getting voice control with Google Assistant took about 45 seconds and suddenly and unexpectedly I had the ability to let people in from upstairs without even needing the app on the iPhone. Alexa still can’t do it, after a few hours of my time. I also really love having a record of time open and closed- and FYI I solved the occasional issue I was having where my garage would close all the way but after a brief pause on occasion open- I live a long block off a very busy road and my garage is the last unit in a complex - so it wasn’t hard for me to barely miss that occurrence by turning to pay attention to traffic - and as I mentioned the woman of the house is a really smart Doberman who was quite happy to go exploring... I created a custom alert that rather than just text me “Garage is Still Open” which I do have it do after 30minutes... I used the same alert but changed the parameters and message so I get a notification “Garage is still closed, “ about 5 minutes after the fact. That way before I get to the freeway I know if I need to make a upturn... After the second time it happened, Mango was just sitting in the garage looking at me driving up. She hates to be in trouble. Lol Another thing I really love is that it was easy to use IFTT to give me subtle hints that my door has opened or closed in case I didn’t hear it.I would recommend this to a friend
Q: QuestionDo you have to leave wifi router on all the time to allow this to work or does it use cellular data?
Asked by Firefighter25.
- A:Answer The my q is attached to your home wi-fi, which has to be on all the time, however when you want to open or close the garage door, your phone or tablet can be connected via cellular and the device will still operate.
Answered by Steveo
Q: QuestionIs the Myq compatible with a regular garage door opener? I would prefer to have the option to use a standard button opener when within range In addition to having the option to use my phone from anywhere. If so, What is the set up process?
Asked by Lauren.
- A:Answer If your garage door already works with a garage door opener, the myQ effectively is another one you mount to the ceiling and garage door. So yes, your existing opener still works.

Q: QuestionMy garage is detached. It is located approx.30' from my house & my wifi internet router is another 20' or so into the house. Is that too far to allow this to work? I see the main unit sits on top of the opener and plugs in, is door sensor batt powered?
Asked by aceinsureya.
- A:Answer Go to your garage with your phone and see if the wifi works there. If it does, you are good to go. Main unit does not sit on opener. It goes near opener. Door sensor comes with a battery already installed.
