    Works well and very useful. Easy install

    • Written by from Third Lake

    We didn't have to mount it on the ceiling near the garage door opener, we mounted it near our door to the house. I've used it when we traveled to give me some peace of mind since it tells you how long the door has been closed. I like that if someone is coming over and I'm not home, I could open the door for them while I'm talking to them on the phone. And I like being able to check the door half an hour after I leave the house to see if I really closed it.

    Chamberlain MyQ Garage Universal Garage Door Controller

    • Written by from BRENTWOOD

    Followed Instructions and had it working about 20 minutes after I received the package !!! It hooks up quickly to your wireless network and then you install the iPhone app and pair it with the wireless router.....THen it's just a matter of syncing it to your opener...I have Lift-Master openers and they work great with the Chamberlain MyQ set up....

    Really nice way to let friends in who are staying over and don't have to hand out keys...and worry about their whereabouts..

    Bought this for myself last Christmas. It installed very easily and within minutes I was online operating my garage door from the my MacBook, iPad, and iPhone. Never again to I have that nagging feeling about the status of my garage door. Well worth the money!

    this works perfectly...

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    Sometimes I accidentally leave my garage door open, and even when I remember to close it I'm not 100% confident it is closed... So, I purchased this item hoping that it would enable me to relax... The unit installed quickly (about 15 minutes) and immediately worked... I now can see if my garage door is open or closed from anywhere in the world... I can also open or close the garage from anywhere, which is very handy when I forgot to close the door or I need to let someone into my house when I'm away... This is a home run product, simple, inexpensive (worth every penny) and it solves a common problem... I see there is one bad review for this product that stated the reason behind the poor rating is because an unauthorized code was picked up during setup process. This is a ridiculous reason to give a poor review as 1. it is the garage door opener that picked up the stray code not the MyQ unit and 2. The solution to this problem is simple, just retrain the garage door opener (which involves pushing 2 whole buttons, one on the opener and one on the controller and it takes an entire 30 seconds to do)... Bottom line, if you want to be able to control your garage door via your phone, get this awesome piece of tech...

    Great toy! Unreliable product !

    • Written by from Bronx

    I was looking for a product like this for a long time.
    I some time forget to close my garage door when I leave home for work.

    I bought this product from online Apple store, bought an additional airport express to improve the wifi signal then I installed it yesterday.
    Although installation instruction was not that great. It required me to create an account with the vendor .
    I was very excited, it worked like a charm.
    I was able to check the status and open and close my garage door from my office.

    Unfortunately, this evening after I returned home, the app stalled and failed to log onto my account, after multiple time rebooting my iPhone and the app, it gave an error message.
    When I search the error number in the online vendor site - it means unable to connect to the device, wait a few minute and then try later.

    I checked the wireless signal in my garage it was excellent.. I had to park my car outside,
    After multiple attempt over 15 minutes, I entered home through my front door (luckily I had my front door key with me today).

    Open the door using the manual switch inside the garage.
    One hour later, the app started to work again

    I learn my lesson, yes it is a cool device. NOT PRACTICAL..
    You need more dependable product for locking and unlocking your main entrance.
    Sorry, I am going to return it tomorrow

    Use with caution!

    • Written by from Ashburn

    Following installation on 3-21 everything seemed to be working great. Loved being able to check my iPhone and see that door was closed. However, during the last few days - once at night when I was home and today (4-17) when I was away - neighbors called to let me know that my garage door was open. Checked my iPhone today and it showed it had been open for 22 minutes, while I left over 2 hours before that. I closed it from the App and called Chamberlain when I got home. To my surprise, I was advised by their technical support that due to this running over the Internet, there is a 3-5 minute period of time after pressing the "learn" button to set up the controller during which time any other devices used in range of my opener will actually sync with my garage door opener and be able to access it in the future. Granted, the likelihood of this happening may be minimal, but it CAN happen and did. Thus, someone else was opening my garage door, unbeknown to them. I advised I was going to unplug the controller to stop this, but was advised by Chamberlain that in order to remove the other devices, I had to wipe out all codes on the garage door opener and reprogram only those that I wanted to have access. Glad they told me that, but quite a pain to redo everything, except this, of course. Everything should now be okay, and Controller is going back to the Apple Store where I purchased it. Loved idea but do not believe it is safe.

    A useful tool for absent minded people

    • Written by from Vista

    I was always forgetting if I closed the garage door. I got this nagging doubt after I am half way to where I am going and then worry about it until I get home or turn around and go back to check. The door has also stayed open all night because I forgot to close it. The MyQ garage door controller is a great solution to the issue. I programmed mine to send me a notification if the door stays open for 10 minutes or more. If I get an alert, I can close the door no matter where I am (cell/network connection required). The device is easy to install and set up. If you have an iOS device, it gets all of the WiFi network information from a bluetooth connection the device establishes with your phone. I have had no issues with it so far. The best part is no more trips back home to check that door.

    Easily smartphone enables any garage door

    • Written by from Mercer Island

    The MyQ Controller mounts in your garage. It connects to your wireless network so your smartphone can access it via WiFi or the internet via a MyQ (free) service. The MyQ Controller acts as a repeater that sends open/close commands to your garage door opener as if it were a door transmitter in your car. This means it works with nearly any garage door opener.

    A separate battery powered sensor mounts on your garage door which confirms if the door is opened or closed. The iPhone App shows a picture of your door in the open or closed state.

    You can buy an additional sensor from Chamberlain to work with a second garage door. But that's it. This allows you to smartphone control up to two garage doors.

    The iPhone app is basic but workable. Graphics show you the current state of the door and tapping the door opens or closes it.

    Easy to install and program especially if you have programmed the transmitters in your car before.
