The MyQ Smart Garage Control Sensor is a great gift for anyone wanting to make their home, more of a smart home at a practical price. The MyQ is a hub that functions the same way a smart garage door opener does, but saves you the cost of changing your entire garage door system. If you want to make your garage door a smart device without breaking the bank, this $30 device is a great way to start.
The MyQ Smart Garage Control allows you to open and close your garage through your phone using the MyQ app. With an internet connection you cannot only open and close your garage door, but you can also give access to friends and family members so they do not need a key to access your house. A nice feature Amazon offers is the “Amazon Key”, which allows Amazon to make deliveries inside your garage using the My Q Chamberlain Smart Garage Control.
What we liked:
- Easy Video Step by Step Setup
- Cost Effective
- Access to know when Garage is open / closed
- Ability to close or open garage no matter location from a mobile device
- Works with most opener models
What we disliked:
- Battery life is good, but need batteries on standby (CR 2450 Lithium Batteries)
- Needs re-synced / calibrated at times
- MyQ App can be slow at opening
Overall, the MyQ Chamberlain Smart Garage Control was very worthwhile for us. The ability to make your garage door into a smart device with a low one time cost, made it a must have for those that are transforming their house into a smart house without breaking the bank. The setup is a simple step-by-step video that makes it so anyone can easily install this device. If you are looking to make your house a little smarter, we suggest this device for your garage door.

The MyQ Chamberlain Smart Garage Door Hub is a very cost effective way to make your existing garage door a smart garage door. Within 20 minutes of opening the box to installation, you'll be ready to use the MyQ Chamberlain Smart Garage Door. The device works through your WiFi, so you must have a signal that reaches your garage area.
Allowing access to your garage and giving other family members user names, this device is well worth the low price tag. Although you do have to maintain this device by keeping the Lithium CR 2450 batteries on hand, the life of the batteries do last. We highly recommend buying this device if you want to keep up with the Jones's and make your house a smart house.
