Help with Chamberlain MYQ and Smartthings


(Joseph Fattizzi) #1

I just bought a chamberlain MyQ Garage door opener. I previously was using the linear zwave to open and close the door.

However it doesn’t seem to be working with my new chamberlain.

What can I use to control the new Chamberlain MyQ and integrate with smartthings?

Hello, I am new with Smartthings and I am just getting started. I have a Chamberlain My Q garage door opener, do I need to purchase the MY Q HUB to integrate with Smartthings as stated above or will this method integrate without the MY Q HUB. Thank you for your help!


(Joseph Fattizzi) #5

It depends if you have the MyQ with the wireless module built in or not.

How do you install this I to SmartThings.
Please consider that I have no clue what anyone is talking about… total rookie trying to figure out how to upload this code into SmartThings account…
There is no repository… i am no sure how to install it…
Correctly as it is not my code…

Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks

Please edit post Erik so that we don’t have more people logging in with the incorrect url. Thanks :slight_smile:

Done - thanks :slight_smile:


#11

Thank you sir!

I try not to have that link displaying anywhere. I even edited the quote so that it is not clickable :slight_smile:


(Erik) #12

Just out of curiosity - why don’t you like the link displayed? Is it a security issue? Or that the main link is different than the link I posted?

Thanks!

Because https://account.smartthings.com will redirect you to the appropriate shard for IDE. The other address does not. So if someone uses the other address and their account is not on the original shard and they happen to install an app or dth, it will not show up in their ST app.

I had no idea! I learn something new everyday :slight_smile: Thanks.

@aroman1 How can I tell if I have the “wireless modulebuilt in” (to My Q Garage) that you are referring to?


(Rich) #16

Can you operate the door with the app on your phone… if so, you are ready to go.


(Todd Basche) #17

I have the app too. Andbi subscribed to ifttt integration for 1 per month and now iys integrted wirh smartthings. I can tell when doors or ligjts go on or up or down.

I’m pretty sure I followed all instructions completely. I created and published the smartapp and device handlers. Connected my account to GitHub. Was able to add the app from the SmartThings/SmartApps/+My Apps. Logged into MyQ and added the Gateway Brand, selected the garage door, and hit save. But no garage door was added to my list of things, no short cuts to do anything. Please help!

Something does not look right with that location. The MyQ Lite app should be set up in Automation > SmartApps > MyQ Lite. Using the Classic app.

Hopefully you installed the following app?


(M) #20

Yes, that’s the same thing. Using the classic app --> automation --> Add a SmartApp. I figured out the problem is that the app was trying to install the garage door without a sensor, and I didn’t have the “MyQ Garage Door Opener-NoSensor” device handler added. However, my garage door does come with a tilt sensor. So currently, the app is installed, but it’s not possible to see whether the door is open or closed. It also does not appear that it is possible to add the tilt sensor? Instead it looks for other contact sensors I have located throughout the house. Thanks again.

UPDATE: I just noticed I have to purchase a tilt sensor other than the one I received with the My Q. What a complete waste of money this thing has been. Should have just bought the GoControl.
