It's great for opening and closing the door from anywhere and to check status but that's all. I can't change any settings such as locking out the garage door or turning motion on or off. I can't turn the light on or off. I can't schedule the garage door to open "for security reasons" (shouldn't that be a warning and then left up to the individual?) I can't schedule the door to close partially (leave a small crack for ventilation in the summer). There is so much that can be done but just isn't possible with this app.
While the app does what its suppose you, it's slow to open and then slow to get the garage open. All the app needs to fix this is a garage door open close widget or at the very least API for Tasker/IFTTT/Zoom Widget, but untill they add something like that, it's easier to use a regular garage door opener. The notifications from the sensor are nice. That's the only good comment I have right now.
12.23.2017 UPDATE: To be fair, the root cause of most of my issues was due to a dead MyQ door sensor battery; the installed battery died after 10 months. However, the mobile app did not alert me to that issue as advertised. My rating would be higher if Chamberlain would restore the SmartThings compatibility. Until then, this is not a smart home compatible device. Fails to accurately display open and close status. No longer supports SmartThings and basic smart home funtions. Notifications are not reliable. Anyone have a good recommendation for a better solution?
Works as stated. I really wish they would improve this app tho. Would like to see landscape support and/or a widget. Just takes too many steps to open my garage door from the phone. I've dropped my review down one star because there seems to be no growth on this software, no IFTTT support, no widget, no Android auto and no real updates. C'mon Chamberlain!!! I have dropped to one star because in order to use this app with IFTTT you have to pay a subscription which is absolutely ridiculous!!!. Chamberlain you should be ashamed of yourself!
The app works ok. Does the basic door functions. It does not work well the Google Home Assistant. MyQ does not understand any command given. It would also be useful if I could setup multiple accounts for others in my family, so alerts could go to multiple emails.
Subscription Fee for integrating with Google Home. So disappointed. Not much good function on Chamberlain comparing to other brand on the market. Why would it even use the word smart. It should remove the word smart and use dumb instead. False advertisement. It's so 'unethical' to even charge a fee for integrate with Google Home. This app not even listed in Google Home for installation.
