Are you looking for the perfect last-minute Christmas gift for your home? 

I partnered with Chamberlain Group Inc. (CGI) and installed a new LiftMaster Wi-Fi® garage door opener that is myQ-connected. With myQ smart technology, I now get Amazon packages delivered inside my garage with Amazon Key. I also can open my garage with my smartphone from anywhere and always check to see if the garage door is open or closed.

You can purchase a LiftMaster Wi-Fi® garage door opener as a thoughtful gift for a new homeowner. But there is another great option. The myQ Smart Garage Hub allows homeowners to add connectivity to their existing garage door opener (it works with all major brands of garage door openers). You can check to see if your existing garage door opener works with the technology here.

Is that the best gift or what?

I wanted to share just how amazing this product really is.

Five Ways our myQ-connected Garage Door Opener Has Made My Life Easier

#1 Worry Free Package Delivery

Amazon key App

With the new myQ smart technology I can connect my Amazon account to Amazon Key.

Prime Members can simply link their myQ App to the Amazon Key App and select “in-garage delivery” at checkout. On delivery day, customers receive notifications via the Key App during every step of the delivery process, from when the package is en-route, to when the garage door opens for the driver to deliver the package and then securely closes. Before a garage door will open, Amazon verifies that the correct driver is at the right address through an encrypted authentication process. Once this step is successfully completed, the door opens, the package is placed in the garage and the driver will wait to move on to their next delivery until the garage door closes. 

Plus, if you are going away for the holidays, it doesn’t mean you’re online shopping habit has to stop. Your Amazon packages can be delivered safely inside your garage.

When I am out and about, I don’t have to worry about my packages. If you knew how often I ordered packages from Amazon, then you would know how much I need and appreciate this service. (Just ask my husband as he will gladly tell you …) 

#2 Dog Walker Access

Dog walking service is incredibly popular. And how nice is it that they can have their own code (instead of a key) to get into the garage? No more forgetting to leave out keys or worrying that the wrong person might find your key! Now I simply give the dog walker guest accessibility through the myQ App from my smartphone.  A simple solution and a huge time saver.

#3 Forgotten Key Solution

Our house in Ventura is really close to the beach. We spend a lot of time on the beach and quite often we manage to lock ourselves out of our home. Now we have a family code that we can all use to enter the home. Can I even tell you how wonderful this is? 

Sometimes we get unexpected calls from friends in the area that want to see hour home or stop by. Now I can give them a code or even open the garage door opener from my phone. 

#4 Repairman Access


Even though we aren’t at the beach house full time, I do have repairmen that need access to our house. The biggest problem we face is sand in our washer and dryer. Go figure. 

We are also going to be doing some construction on our home and I will definitely assign codes to everyone that needs access. I am so happy I don’t need to give anyone access to our home with a key. 

#5 Garage Door Left Open?

Using the myQ App on my phone, I can check to see if our garage door is open or closed anytime, anywhere. Now I never have to wonder if the garage door is open – which is one less thing you have to worry about. With the myQ App, I will always know whether or not I (or a family member) has left the garage door open. You can check the status of your garage door, plus open and close the garage door from your smartphone — no matter where you are. Additionally, you can get real-time alerts when your garage is opening or closing to keep track of daily comings and goings.I love the peace of mind I get knowing my garage is secure, especially when the house is vacant!

  1. I have a habit of shopping online more than buying at the store, because it is convenient and fast. I can choose what I like and don’t have to travel a lot.
