Remembering to close the garage door

Just about every homeowner has been there. You’re in such a rush, trying to get out the door for your morning commute, weekend getaway or just doing the daily chores and forget to close the garage door.  Though this could seem just a small little “oops”, it can compromise the security of your home. It can be just as bad as leaving open your front door. An open garage door can look very inviting to thieves. Yet it can just pain be hard to keep remembering to close the garage door with such a busy life. Chamberlain, a major garage door opener company with brands like Chamberlain and Liftmaster, has thought of situations just like this when they created the MYQ app.

Chamberlain (and it’s brands like Liftmaster) garage door openers are wifi compatible. The MyQ app work on your smartphone, allowing you to close your garage door even when not your not there, even if your 100 miles away! With smartphone control you can monitor and control your garage door from anywhere using your smartphone or tablet. The app also give you notifications as well. My q app lets you check to see if your garage door is open, and when the last time it was closed. Parents, this is a great feature if you have a teenager that loves to try ton sneak out of the house using the garage.  You can also set notifications on how long the garage door has been opened. That is a great feature in case you are going to bed and forget to close the garage door.

Now, at this point, you might be thinking, “ but I have an older unit that does not come with that built in capability”.  That has also, been thought of. The MYQ Smart Garage Hub is compatible with most garage door opener brands manufactured after 1993. If your garage door opener has safety sensors, it is likely compatible.
