Using Yo+Pebble to open my garage

(Jose S) #1

I’d like to use the YO app through Pebble to open/close my garage. The only issue is that IFTTT doesn’t see my MyQ Garage doors as an option. Anyway that this could change?

Are you on Android or iOS?

I use a tasker task along with Pebble Tasker to perform a few different ST tasks. Works great for me.

For example, to open my garage, I hit the bottom button to launch PebbleTasker from within Glance. This brings up a menu with three options:

Audio -->
Call -->
SmartThings -->

Hit the bottom button again to bring up the ST submenu:

Door Lock
Garage Door
Laptop Plug

Then hit the middle button to open/close the garage door.

I should have updated this shortly after. It works. All I needed was to update my Smartthings channel to add my garage doors to the selections. Also, I’m on iOS.

As long as Smartthings recognizes your garage door as a switch, then it’s a matter of setting it up in IFTTT. Once you register for the account and activate the Smartthings channel it’s a matter of doing the same for Yo. Then set it up to be IF THIS - Text YO to IFTTT, then THAT open/close your garage.
