If you like giving practical gifts for the holiday season, I would highly recommend the MyQ Garage device. Any homeowner with a garage would enjoy having the abilities of this gadget – which allows you to control the door with your smart phone!
We recently received the MyQ Garage to test out as part of our holiday gift guide. I don’t know how many times we have driven away from our home only to wonder if we closed the garage door or not. We store quite a bit of belongings in there, so I would hate to leave the door up for everyone to see.
With MyQ Garage, however, I can quickly open up an app to check the status of the garage door. No more worrying about having our stuff on display for everyone. Also, I no longer have to share the code with family so they can gain access to our house when we are gone. We were able to change the code to something no one else knows for added safety and protection for our home.
Setting up MyQ Garage was simple. The instructions told my husband exactly how to connect the device to our current garage door opener. We each installed the app on our phone (my iPhone and his Android phone) and paired each app to the MyQ garage. This was also easy with the on-screen instructions. Within 30 minutes, we had everything set up and ready to go.
James stood there and tested it out, opening and closing the garage door with the mobile app. I pulled up our account on my laptop, and could tell inside the house if he had the door open or closed. When he went to work the following Monday (we installed the MyQ Garage on a weekend), he tested it again and it worked perfectly.
This will give us one less reason to worry when we leave the house – especially when we are leaving in a rush and/or with our two kids in tow! Both of those reasons are valid enough to forget about the garage door as we pull out of the driveway!
