Whether you’re tired of having packages stolen from your front porch, or you need an easy way to let family members and guests into your home while you’re away, the MyQ smart garage door hub from Chamberlain is the perfect solution.

How It Works

The Chamberlain MyQ smart garage door opener is Wi-Fi enabled and can be controlled from your smart phone. You’ll get updates in real time when your garage door is opened or closed. The smart hub is easy to set up and compatible with multiple popular garage door openers.

Secure Package Deliveries

With more people returning to work, you can’t always wait for an Amazon package to show up at your door. The MyQ garage door opener allows Prime members to opt in and have Amazon packages securely delivered right inside their garage by linking their MyQ account in the Key app.

Guests Are Welcome

The MyQ guest access option allows you to securely invite up to 3 people to control your garage, so it’s the perfect option for grandparents who frequently come over to watch the kids, or teenagers who return from school before the workday is over.

Why Customers Love It

Amazon customers gave the MyQ garage door hub an average rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars with more than 26,000 reviews. Customers loved the feature that allowed them to set an automatic time to close the garage door so it wasn’t accidentally open all night, and the ability to close their garage door from a distance when they forgot before leaving for work.

Q: The grout line between my kitchen granite countertop and the tile backsplash has cracked for the umpteenth time. Each winter the crack appears, and each year I re-grout it hoping it will be the final time. Am I using the wrong grout?

I have the same issue with other cracks around my home that mysteriously open and close depending on the time of year. --Gary K., Columbus, Oio
