If you recently bought a MyQ device, you might have found that the easiest way to integrate with your Amazon Alexa or other voice assistant is to set it up with IFTTT.
Setting up your MyQ garage door is simple, follow the instructions below.
As you enable the Applet of your choosing, you will be required to connect your MyQ account and any other service you wish to integrate.
Create a MyQ garage door widget
With the IFTTT button widget, you can close your garage door without opening your phone. Simply tap the button on your phone screen or smart watch to activate the connected Applet.
To use this widget, you will need to have the IFTTT app for your iOS or Android device, and enable widgets. You can read more here.
Close the door when you leave
Using your mobile device as a location trigger, IFTTT can make sure your garage door is closed when you leave your house or when you lock the doors. You will never have to turn around to check if you remembered to close the garage door again.
These integrations can be the element that give you peace of mind when you leave your home. You can head to your destination with the knowledge your home is secure and your garage door is closed.
Know what’s going on in your home
Get personalized notifications about when your garage door opens or closes. Whether you want a text on your phone or a flashing light, it’s up to you.
Keep the lights on (or off)
Come home to a well lit garage or save energy by turning the lights off when you leave. You can make sure it happens without having to do a thing. It's the magic of smart home automations.
Smartest home on the block
Your MyQ device powers so more than just your garage door. With IFTTT, you have the capacity to completely integrate your home to make it exactly the way you want it, every time you walk through the door. Turn on your lights, start the music, and set the temperature automatically.
