Open or Close your Garage Door. FROM YOUR PHONE. From anywhere. Need I say more? ok. I will because I need to meet the minimum. We have a pair of Chamberlain MyQ equipped garage doors. Unfortunately while they tout this ability, you still need to buy this device to make use of the technology. Once installed on your router, you will need to hit the learn buttons on your garage doors. the device will then recognize the doors and will sync up to them. from there, open the app and close your doors. they will beep and lights will flash and your dog will bark. then your door will close.
Overall, it was easy to setup. Glad the account is free and not another money grab.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RJA Setup easy, works fine.
Worked out of the box and now I can control my new LiftMaster door using the Android app on my Galaxy S5 phone. A little costly but I got a better price at Home Depot than elsewhere including tax.
NOTE: I installed this in the Ethernet port of a Netgear EX6100 WiFi range extender near the garage instead of the router and it initialized and works just fine.
Now I can't wait for my other 25-year old opener to fail so I can get it replaced by my home warranty company with another compatible LiftMaster unit!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jsolomon Works like a charm
This does exactly what I wanted; it allows me (and my wife) to open/shut the garage door from anywhere and to check its status if we're curious if it was shut.

My garage door started acting up and would open and close on its own. Since then I have learnt that some neighbor might have picked up same frequency and might be causing this issue. Anyway, I got this to monitor my door when I away and can get notifications. So, on demand, I can open and close the door by using just the app. The setup was easy. All you do is hook it up to the router and then make it talk to the MyQ garage door opener using learn button. And, yes you do need chamberlain( or liftmaster) account and from that point on you are all set. You just set alerts/notifications that you want. The unit works for both chamberlain and liftmaster systems. As of today, I am pretty happy that I got this. Wish it was a wifi device though. But i can live with this for now.

Great product! Saves time from having to drive back home just to make sure you did close your garage door.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rdelinda Well worth the money for the peace of mind
This product works great! I was always forgetting if I closed the garage door when I left the house, and several times had to turn around and go back to check it. Now, I don't have to, I can just check my cell phone and have the peace of mind knowing it was closed. I highly recommend this product to anyone who can use it with their garage door opener!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dub No more garage door openers !
I'm forever misplacing garage door openers, (moving from vehicles to motorcycles, to bike), however like most folks I never forget or lose my phone!
Install was easy, I think needing to hardwire it to the router was a bit out dated, a wifi connection would have been better. If you've programmed a garage door opener before the process is similar and as straightforward.
The app does what its supposed to do, allows you to open and close the doors, get a status on a door i.e. if the door is open the app display it as such. Getting alerted when the door is opened or closed is great!.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ExpressiveDriver Excellent Product - Easy to Set up
The gateway was relatively easy to install. Paring it with the garage door opener was a little more difficult because of the instructions on the opener.
