Chamberlain MyQ + IFTTT to be integrated into Smartthings?


(ytwytw) #1

There is a new (not free!!!) service coming from Chamberlain to link your GDO with Google Assistance or IFTTT

https://myqservices.com/account/login

$1 USD/$1.3 CAD per month, or buy 10 get 2 month free

one month free trial.

Is it possible to use this to replace MyQ Lite DH? at least it doesnt need any sensor on the GDO…

Thanks

You don’t need a sensor on the garage door.

I’m not controlling the garage door with SmartThings, I don’t need to do that. But I do want ST to report on the garage door status, and use it to drive actions in Smartthings.

So I have the Chamberlain app sending notifications on my android control tablet… and ST, via Sharptools and AutoNotification, intercepting those notifications and using them in ST.

One-time small fee for some of those apps.

In fact, I do want to use ST to control my GDO, and I want to see the status on ST.

Looks like the official paid integration cannot open the door, only close.

Useless to me, back to the myQ lite + sensors
