The Chamberlain MyQ Smart Garage Door Opener was one of the most popular items way back on Black Friday. It’s a life-changer (we’ll explain, below). But a lot of shoppers missed out, because it sold out fast. Now it’s back in stock at Amazon, and down to just $30 today—plus it includes a free $30 credit to Amazon Key, an in-garage delivery service.
Haven’t given a lot of thought to a smart home device that handles your garage? You should. It means you can have deliveries made to a safe spot when you’re not home, opening and closing the garage as needed.
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
You may not need more convincing, but if you do, read on.
How it works
Normally priced at $40, the MyQ Smart Garage Door Opener is universal, so it works with your existing garage door (no need to replace the door). Just add this smart home system to your existing opener (as long as it was made after 1993) and you’re good to go. It’s an add-on to all the standard safety sensors that your garage door opener already provides. You use the MyQ app to open and close the garage from anywhere. The MyQ Smart Garage Door Opener device comes in very handy when you’re away and have packages coming.
Shoppers love how easy it is to schedule openings and closings, and to get up-to-the-minute alerts. “Works as promised. I installed it in a couple minutes, and can control the doors with my phone,” shared a happy five-star Amazon reviewer. “My favorite parts are the schedule and the alerts. I programmed my doors to shut at 9pm everyday. This prevents leaving them open overnight, automatically. I also set it to notify me if the doors are left open for more than 45 minutes.”
The Chamberlain MyQ Smart Garage Door Opener comes with a $30 Amazon Key credit. Amazon Key is the retailer’s in-garage delivery service yourself—a life-changer that protects against bad weather, theft and damage. Here’s how it works: Instead of delivery people leaving your package in front of your door, they safely access your garage with the MyQ app. Amazon authorizes the delivery, and sends you a notification when packages are being delivered and the service is accessed. In-Garage Delivery Drivers, who are vetted with background checks, will securely slip the package inside your garage.
“The integration with Amazon Prime is fantastic,” raved a satisfied shopper. “Getting an early notification from Amazon the night before, then getting a notification that it was delivered is great!...I don't have to worry about having my package stolen (I had two stolen in the last two years), as they are now delivered into the garage, with the delivery person not taking more than one step into the garage (verified on cam). Nice!”
