A1 Garage is proud to announce that we now stock and install Liftmaster myQ Smartphone Universal Garage Door Controllers. Use your smartphone to control most modern garage door openers and gate operators from anywhere.
Transform your average garage door into a smart garage door!
The myQ smart garage door opener provides you with much more than just the ability to control it from anywhere with the help of your smartphone. It has a whole host of features that will benefit homeowners, keeping your property and family safe and secure, using a simple and convenient app.
Features and Benefits
Garage Door Open and Close Alert – With your myQ app, you can set up an alert to inform you when your garage door opens or closes. This feature lets you know when family members are coming and going. You can check that the kids have closed the garage after leaving for school or know that your spouse has got home safely. It also highlights any suspicious activity, so if your garage door is opened and it wasn’t you or someone you know who could do it, you can take action straight away.
Never Worry About Your Garage Door Being Left Open Again – We’ve all experienced that feeling of dread: did I really close the garage door? You can ask yourself this question on the way to work and end up turning back and wasting precious time. Or even worse, if you are on vacation, and this question might ruin your trip by playing on your mind. This will no longer be an issue as you will be able to find out from the app if your garage door is open or closed and then close it from wherever you are, be it in an important business meeting or on vacation on the other side of the world. You can also schedule your garage door to open and close at specific times.
Safety in Mind – When you close the garage door using the myQ app, there will be an audible alarm and a bright light that flashes on and off to warn anyone near it that the door is going to close.
Simple Installation – Installation of the device is simple and completely wireless. There’s a metal bracket mounted in the garage wall or ceiling that holds the myQ hub and comes included with its fittings. The sensor is affixed to the garage door with some double-sided tape that comes included.
Included Integrations – myQ offers free integration with these services: Alarm.com, Amazon Key, Alpine-in vehicle dash system, Clare Controls, Tend, Honeywell Total Connect, Wink, and Xfinity. You can also choose subscription-based integrations, including Google Assistant and IFTTT.
Allow Those You Trust to Access Your Garage – The garage can be one of the busiest access points of the home, but you are in total control of who accesses it and when. You can add up to five users that you know and trust to the myQ app by sending an invite and setting them up with guest profiles.
However, It might be that you need a tradesperson, friend, neighbor, or delivery driver to enter your garage when you aren’t about. You can arrange a time for them to be there when you open the garage door remotely and close it when they have done what they need to do.
This is perfect for delivery drivers when you want them to drop off a package that needs to be kept secure and out of any inclement weather. In addition, if you are an Amazon Prime member, there’s an even greater benefit when it comes to deliveries.
Link Your myQ Garage Device to Amazon Key for Safe and Secure Deliveries
For Amazon Prime members in select areas across the U.S, another benefit of investing in a myQ compatible garage door opener is that it is compatible with Amazon Key. This enables Amazon customers the convenience of contactless delivery straight to their garage.
Once your garage door opener is connected to the myQ service, it is simple to set up the Amazon Key app without any additional installation required.
The way it works is simple– once you have linked your myQ device to Amazon Key for In-Garage Delivery, you can use it for any package you are getting delivered by Amazon.
If you aren’t at home to receive the delivery, a driver will open your garage door using a hand-held scanner. The delivery driver will leave the package inside the garage out of any vehicles’ path and then close the door using the scanner. You’ll be kept informed at each step from a notification that the package is out for delivery: that the driver has arrived, that the delivery is completed, and that the garage door has been closed securely.
As well as the convenience of having your Amazon items delivered securely when you are out of the house, be it at work or on vacation. The package will also be safe from damaging weather such as rain or hot sun. Even if you are indoors and prefer a contactless delivery, you can still take advantage of in-garage delivery, so you have no interaction with the driver.
As Amazon’s top priority is to protect their customers’ security and privacy, Amazon drivers are screened and are not given keys or access codes to your garage. You are also in complete control and have the option to block access to your garage using the app if you decide to change your mind on the day the package is to be delivered. Additionally, if the delivery was not completed to your satisfaction, or your property or the package was damaged, you are entitled to file a claim.
Though not required, an optional Amazon Key compatible camera such as the myQ Smart Garage Camera will allow you to watch your deliveries in real-time.
