ELMHURST, Ill., Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Most people don't think about it, but the garage is often the main door to your home. It provides access and keeps possessions safe. Opening and closing the garage door is so much a part of your daily routine that it is hard to remember if it was closed. That's why Chamberlain, the leader in do-it-yourself residential garage door openers, is introducing the solution to ensure you're in control of your home, from wherever you are – The Chamberlain MyQ Garage™.
Built off Chamberlain's MyQ technology platform, which connects homeowners to their home from anywhere in the world through their smartphones or tablets, the MyQ Garage™ is an easy to install product that allows users to open and close their garage doors, as well as receive alerts and notifications, from around the globe, with a click of an app. Regardless of the manufacturer, the MyQ Garage has been designed to work with the majority of garage door openers manufactured after 1993.
"Home connectivity is a growing part of our everyday lives," said Cory Sorice, Director of MyQ Connectivity. "Consumers want to be more in control. With MyQ Garage you have the ability to be connected, with total confidence that your home, family, and all your possessions are safe. Never again will you experience panic when you're out somewhere, wondering if you left your garage door open. With the MyQ Garage, you will always have peace of mind knowing you can close your garage door from anywhere!"
The MyQ Garage can be installed in minutes with no wiring required. Designed in collaboration with Apple's MFi team, the set up process on an iPhone® or iPod touch® allows you to add MyQ Garage to your Wi-Fi® network in just one click without having to type the Wi-Fi password that is already stored on your iOS device. As an alternative, the MyQ Garage can be added to your Wi-Fi network with most other wireless devices by entering your Wi-Fi password. Once added to the network, homeowners simply download the free app from the App Store(SM) or Google Play™ and follow the rest of the set-up instructions to program their garage door opener.
In addition to smartphone control, alerts and notifications, the MyQ Garage also provides a warning for anyone inside the garage prior to closing, as well as integrating with a garage door's safety sensors to prevent the door from closing when anything is in its path.
"We're extremely excited to be able to offer a product like MyQ Garage," said Sorice. "The MyQ Garage is an easy and affordable way to the upgrade your existing garage door opener to make sure you stay connected with your home."
The MyQ Garage is available at Amazon, Apple Stores, The Home Depot and select Best Buy stores. In Canada, the MyQ Garage is available nationwide at Home Depot, Lowe's, Best Buy and Future Shop.
