Adding z-wave control to existing Liftmaster wall-mounted control panel

There is a simple way to do this, but it may be too expensive, and I am reluctant to recommend these now even though I use them in my own home. this is essentially a robot finger. It has its own IFTTT channel, so integration with echo or SmartThings is very simple using IFTTT.

The reason I am now reluctant to recommend them is that they have changed from a locally operating no fee model to a cloud-based annual service plan model. So I’m not as happy with these as I used to be, but I should mention them as they are an easy solution for retrofitting which doesn’t damage the original device or alter the safety mechanisms. .
