    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.
