Is there a service fee associated with using the MyQ app and smartphone control?

No. There is no charge to use the MyQ app or service. You can download the app for free using GooglePlay or the Apple App Store.

We have a 2-car garage with 2 separate doors. Can one controller control both doors?

Yes, a single MyQ hub can control multiple garage doors; however, the package only comes with one sensor for one door. You’ll need to buy an additional wireless garage door sensor if you want to control a second door.

If I don't have my phone on hand, can I still use my existing Clicker remote to open and close my garage door?

Yes, your existing remote will still work. Additionally, if you use your traditional remote, the MyQ app on your phone will continue to send you open and close alerts simultaneously like usual.

What happens if I lose my phone?

Visit the online MyQ web portal at to update your login credentials or access your garage.

I want notifications if my door has been left open, but only between 7-10? Can I do that?

Yes, go to the rules section of the app and set the specific time frames that you’d like to receive notifications.

Can I control indoor lighting with MyQ Garage too?

Yes, MyQ Garage works with Chamberlain and LiftMaster branded MyQ Lamp controllers and light switches. A total of 16 devices (door sensors and lighting modules combined) can be controlled by one MyQ Garage hub.

How secure is this product? What kind of encryption does it use?

The MyQ security does not rely only on the Wi-Fi's security settings. Our communications from the MyQ Garage through our servers, and to any web portal, have at least 128-bit encryption or more. When the MyQ Garage commands the garage door opener, it will use all security measures of the original remote.

If I install three separate units at three different properties, will the smartphone app see and control all three units?

When you login to the app on your phone, you have the ability to choose devices and select or “Add a Place.” The MyQ Garage unit for each property will have a separate serial number that you will need to enter into the app.
