Can someone tell whether the hub can control two separate garage doors (each has their individual door opener motor) with an extra sensor (since the hub pairs with one garage motor, I am thinking it I will need two hubs to control two separate doors)? Please advise. In response to whether you would need two hubs for two sensors/garage doors-no you don't. I have one hub and it links to both sensors.

This only supports a few major brands. It doesn't support a lot of the wholesale "white label" garage door openers that mass home builders use.

Quote from MadPup
:
There is a story going around (likely an urban myth) about a thief finding an unoccupied house and shouting true an open window "Alexa, open garage door". While this might not be a true story it's definitely a concern. Hence I am avoiding enabling voice control of my doors until voice recognition is available. I see that Echo Auto has it, although not for security purposes.
Sounds like urban myth to me, not to mention the fact that I purposefully changed my Amazon devices wake word to something OTHER than "Alexa" because I didn't want stupid commercials on TV triggering it. So unless you've already been in my house and know my device's wake words, good luck shouting "Alexa" outside my house, it won't get you anywhere. Wink

I have no doubt this is true and exactly why Google devices won't open the door.
I have no doubt that's a bunch of BS. Find one CONFIRMED report online that this has actually happened. I can't find a single one. And as I mentioned, "Alexa" isn't my wake word, and I would suggest anyone with an Amazon device NOT use "Alexa" as their wake word especially if they have a TV nearby.

integrate w/ Tesla somehow or phone GPS app so it auto recognizes car pulling up/out? I can save $300 for Tesla homelink.
You can almost definitely get this to work with some kind of geofencing setup as long as there is 3rd party support out there somewhere for opening the garage door another way than pressing the button specifically in the MyQ app. Chamberlain makes a product called "HomeBridge" that adds Apple HomeKit support, but there is a 3rd party homebrew solution also called HomeBridge that is basically a server you run on a computer in your house that, when paired with the right plugin, can make almost any popular accessory work with Apple HomeKit. If one of those works, HomeKit has built in geofencing. Not as familiar with Android, but I'm sure there's something similar.

FYI - to those who have a MyQ Chamberlain garage door, you may be better served with a
828LM https://www.amazon.com/LiftMaster...B005FT4N2M. The difference between the two is that this unit supports more than just Chamberlain doors.

It's not on sale at the moment but this has a really long range and works really well for us.

My garage door opener has MyQ built-in and it works great. The app (I have android) works flawlessly. Not sure how hard this is to set up on a regular garage door though.

You'd need only one of those but two sensors to track the status of each one separately.
And it is probably cheaper to buy two of these just to get the second sensor...

Purchased from Amazon Services as used very good/repackaged. If not new in sealed package, may want to make sure you reset to factory BEFORE attempting the installation.

If someone yelling through your window to "open the garage" worries you - probably need to pass as you may not sleep tonight?

Set up may challenge your patience as it IS NOT plug & play. To double your pleasure - pair with the "Amazon Key" app and not only do you get notice of delivery, your purchases will be safe and dry INSIDE when you get home.

Very handy when the door is inadvertently left open beyond your specified window and it closes itself after sending the safety alert.

Note requires door sensors - "myQ is compatible with most brands of garage door openers made after 1993, including Chamberlain, Craftsman, Lift Master, Stanley, and more."

I have 2 garage door lift units for my garage, I assume I would need two of these?
That's my setup. Each unit comes with a base and a sensor.... the base unit can support two sensors but you would need to buy the 2nd sensor separately. Checking pricing, you will notice that it's cheaper to buy two of these complete kits and simply throw out the 2nd base.

I have had these working in my garage for a few months - LOVE IT. As others said, add a Wyze camera for extra security if you are planning to open it for others when not home. It saved me twice already when some delivery came and I wasn't home. Also once I forgot to close the door at night and the alert notified me at 11pm that the door is open (you can setup alerts for when the door is open for more than X minutes or if it's open at X pm).
Great little deal!

I've had a few smart garage openers, including the myQ. It is by FAR the most frustrating and buggy experience out of all of them. It's truly not worth 30 bucks. Check out reddit on users that have had the same experience, it's very rare to find someone who endorses this one - especially if wanting to use with Apple HomeKit. Just a heads up.

I set mine up with Alexa and a timed close at 8pm in case I forget to close the garage. I didn't use the phrase Alexa open garage door, instead used a passphrase.

I used a combination of the simplethings app and Alexa settings to set it up for free

1) You cannot open the garage doors by voice command, just like you can't unlock doors by voice (I mean by telling Alexa to open the door on its own). I don't recall if you can set up a passcode like you can for the door locks though, but those people worried about people standing outside your door screaming for Alexa need to take your tinfoil hat off and go play outside (in the chemtrails)

2) Quite a few people asking about MyQ being built and using this. Not sure why you would need to do that - you have this built into the door already. This is for making a non-MyQ door into one. In my case, I just replaced my garage door opener with a MyQ, but the 2nd door had a somewhat newer Chamberlain so I didn't replace both openers. Well, apparently they change the 'rolling code' frequencies over the years - so I can't make my physical openers work on both doors. So I'm going to pick this up and make the other door smart, so I can open and close both doors without having to carry 2 openers.

Hope that helps someone!

How much for the visonic? Can you share a link?
I purchased it through mydigitaldiscount (slickdeals post) for $10 about 2 years ago. They are currently 15. The link is below but any smartthings compatible door/window or tilt sensor will do.

I don't have any smart homehub... (Google , Alex...etc) I just want to check door status and open/close remotely. Would this one work with no additional subscription cost? Thanks for advice
