Initially it worked perfectly. I was receiving all of my push notifications. But recently they stopped. I had to reinstall the app. Worked perfect, then the notifications stopped....again. My phone has had a series of system updates. I'm not sure if the two are related but it sure is coincidental. Although, my husband and I have the exact same phone, he also has had a system update, but he's still receiving notifications. I guess I will have to do another reinstall. 11/13/17 Update: Once again, I have stopped receiving notifications of when my garage door opens and closes. And once again, I will do another reinstall. Note: I have a Samsung Note 4 that is current in software. My husband has the exact same phone but continues to receive notifications.
Works perfectly. However, we need to be allowed to decide for ourselves if we want to have the ability to close and open the garage door via voice command with google assistant or other voice activated assistant. Chamberlain, please tell us when you will make your paid service for use with voice control fully functional at the user's choice? This is a serious downfall. All that's needed is turning on both opening and closing for the garage door via voice control and add a disclaimer if Chamberlain requires one. This should by the clients "risk" to take at their choice. I don't see a point paying for voice control of my garage door if I can't open AND close the door via voice. Please advise. Best regards, Andrew.
The app itself does work good, but the hardware I have is a problem. The sensor on the door must be cheap or something, as mine will often give alerts that the door opened even though it hasn't. Instead of providing peace of mind, it creates the exact opposite. The app is only as good as the hardware it serves. The door openers with this WiFi capability built in are probably better, but the sensor on the door method is pretty terrible for me.
I have had problems with the app in the past but it's been working well for over a year now. The company has been aggressively asking me 2 review the app or send feedback everytime I launch the app, which I find extremely annoying so here is my review. Now stop harassing me with it. Thank you very much.
It works but I have to have 2 places at home. When I try to add my 2nd garage door to my original place I press the learn button on the unit once or even the learn button on the wall mount twice when it say to but nothing happens. It ends up timing out with an error.
I'm on the fence with this product. Its neat the way it is designed to work. It makes your old garage door opener smart. On the down side, its unreliable. My doors always open with the app, but never close. It goes through the obnoxious warming beeps ect, but no closed door, no lights on my opener showing it had a problem. Also, charging for IFTTT and Google home support is just flat out low, especially when the product is flakey to start with. Anyone looking to setup garage door automation, I suggest looking to a different solution. I haven't tried any of the other, but I do find the myq rather lacking.
