The Smart Garage Control is compatible with most brands of garage door openers manufactured after 1993that use photoelectric sensors that do not shut off. It is not intended for use with openers in which the photoelectric sensors located near the bottom of the garage door change power mode , or any Chamberlain Group opener with a yellow learn button manufactured between 2010 and 2021, or any Linear opener.Use our compatibility tool to help you check if your garage door opener is compatible.
Your Smart Garage Control must be within 50 feet of your Wi-Fi router. If the Wi-Fi signal in the garage is weak, try moving the router closer to your garage to minimize interference from walls and other objects. If you are still experiencing issues with a low signal, a Wi-Fi extender may be needed. For help with testing and improving your Wi-Fi signal strength, visit our Support Site.

An Intuitive Setup That Requires Wi
In the Chamberlain MyQ Smart Garage Control box, youll find two main pieces of hardware and some extras. What you wont find is a garage door opener, though the MyQ system works alongside your current garage door to make it smart.
The smart hub, which weve been affectionately calling the brain, gets mounted on the ceiling, close to the actual garage door motor. Its a square piece of plastic with technology inside to connect with your garage door, along with some buttons and a power port. Chamberlain didnt hold back on branding with two big logos. The other piece to the puzzle is a door sensor that will live in the bottom corner of the physical garage door. Its much smaller in comparison to the hub and opts for a battery. Its all pretty simple, and Chamberlain includes some mounting tools for an easy installation.
Alongside the physical hardware, youll need the MyQ Garage & Access Control app its available for Android and iOS. The app is the main control panel for both setup and using the MyQ. Youll also need to create an account, and fair warning, it can take a bit to get the confirmation email. That delay in creating our account was the only delay we experienced.
And during setup, get ready to see your garage door make some sudden movements. In our experience, it will raise and lower a few times throughout the process. And when its done, youll be able to control, see a status and even link it with other smart home systems through the app.

Great upgrade to an existing opener. Was quick and easy to install, five minute setup and fifteen minute install. Now I can the check status of the door and operate it from my smart phone. Color blends in with the garage. Nice upgrade for a none Wi-Fi garage door opener.

Works Great as Advertised. Set up was simple and easy, 15 mins tops. Works as expected. Text notifications come every time. Love how you can set a schedule for the garage door. I have it close every night at midnight just in case someone left the door open.

Simple set up. Added my wife as co-owner and she was able to set up her phone just as easily without my help. I am planning on ordering a second sensor for the other bay in garage giving us ability to monitor house safely from anywhere via our phones.

For instance, if you closed 40 minutes ago, it will show just that. You can easily tap the garage door to open it as well. You can also view a timeline of sorts that shows you when the door was opened or closed. Its all quite handy.
From a security standpoint, youll need to be actively signed in and authenticated to launch the app. You can opt for a passcode on your mobile device or use the built-in authentication method, such as unlocking with a fingerprint or your face. The app at this time doesnt offer a two-factor authentication solution, but were hopeful it could be supported in the future.
You can also share access to your home and the garage door through the Users tab. Theyll need to create a MyQ account and authenticate. And the common theme here is that Chamberlain isnt adding complex interfaces to access information or functionality. Its all front and center with menus at the bottom.
