Nowadays when you look around, it seems like everything can be controlled through your smartphone. Honestly, I do pretty much everything possible on my phone, which is why I upgraded to accompany all the apps I have. I’m just as guilty as anyone else when it comes to social media, but my phone is used for so much more. My phone is used to pay bills, check my kid’s grades, ordering food from restaurants and even adjust lighting in my house. Recently, I’ve had the chance to check out the MyQ® Home Bridge from Chamberlain and it fits my lifestyle perfectly. The MyQ® Home Bridge can connect to any garage door opener that was built any time after 1993. All you need to do is download the MyQ® app from the Apple Store and connect through your Wi-Fi network. Learn More about the MyQ® Home Bridge before purchasing.
The first thing you need to do is install the bracket and slide your Home Bridge into the bracket. Afterwards, all you have to do is connect it to your Wi-Fi through your app.
Connecting to Home Network
When it comes to connecting to my network, it was actually pretty easy. When you log into the app, it’ll ask if you like to add a new device. Click the plus sign, with your device being plugged up it should connect to it. Once the device is connected, it’ll ask you what you like to connect to, which is the garage opener for me. Once it’s connected, you can open and close the garage as you please and it’ll let you know when it’s closed. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s left the house and forgot to close the garage, which makes your wife go crazy.
Great for the Family
Since me and my son park in the garage, after I set it up, he downloaded the app and entered my information to use it also. It was really quick and easy, plus with the app it’ll show you how long the garage door has been opened or closed. If you’re like me, someone who forgets everything, those features alone is great for you.
