Ratings and Reviews
After a couple of months this still works flawlessly.
I read all of the negative reviews on this MyQ wifi sensor and garage door opener. I set up a mesh network to assure excellent connectivity. I set up a motion sensor activated camera in my garage to verify proper operation. I installed the sensor top center of my garage door. I installed the wifi sensor/operator within the required range of my garage door opener and followed the set up requirements step by step.
I do not use this with a whole house network as that takes another step and monthly payments for some company to make my phone have one less app (lame).
Since install I have had zero issues. We have lost power and had several brown outs during a couple of tropical storms with no issue.
My son is 10 and the last to leave in the morning, so I had to set something up to assure that my garage door was closed after the little dude rolled out to school. It turns out that he always remembers to close the garage door, but my 14 year old daughter....not so much.
Buy this thing and remember, without suitable wifi and correct instillation, it is your fault that this doesn’t work.
Not always reliable
I own the LiftMaster garage door opener for approximately 8 months, and it works fine. However, the App is the problem.
In theory, the concept is amazing — to open your garage door remotely. However, if it would be more reliable, then it would be worthy of more stars. There is a glitch that doesn’t always alert you when the door has either opened or closed, causing you to panic if you are away from your home and see one alert without the other. The second glitch causes an error message that doesn’t allow you to close the door and forces you to “reset” it by manually pushing the Liftmaster button. Well, if you are remote, there is no way to manually reset it, so your garage door remains open while you are not home. The third glitch keeps you waiting in permanent hourglass mode until the app times out so you are unable to open or close the door.
Please update the app to fix these bugs. It needs to be more reliable > 60% of the time. The 40% of the failures can be detrimental if you are not home to do the fixes that are required.
Won’t stay connected
Didn’t buy the unit because of the wireless ability, but after the unit was installed I figured the connection would be handy. Installed a router extension device to insure good signal strength. Confirmed wireless signal was good, with both my iPhone as well as an Alexa unit; both indicate strong signal. So I follow the menu instructions, get the garage door opener connected to the wireless and everything looks fine. Open the garage door from the smart phone app and thought, yeah this is pretty cool. Then suddenly the signal on the app shows no connection to the wireless and the garage door no longer responds. I repeat the install procedure several more times, each time with the same result;the wireless will stay connected for maybe up to one minute and then disconnects.
So I call the garage door company that installed the LiftMaster unit and they have a technician come out. After he tries and gets the same result several times he tells me that, “the wireless devices in these openers really aren’t very good, the technology is way behind the times, and you’re just not gonna be able to use the wireless feature”. End of story. WTH?? I needed a garage door opener capability for my H-D bike, so spent another 40 bucks and bought a small profile remote opener. While I don’t really absolutely need this MyQ feature, it still pisses me off that it doesn’t work.
