The garage door opener brand LiftMaster recently debuted a free app called MyQ, which gives consumers the ability to monitor and control their garage from virtually anywhere. With a growing number of consumers turning to their smartphone to keep an eye on their home, the new app is the perfect tool for making sure that the garage is never vulnerable.
The MyQ app from LiftMaster is a free application available for iPhone and Android devices. The app works by connecting to nearly any garage door brand and then sending notifications to homeowners if the garage door is left open. Users can then close the door remotely simply by using the app. MyQ also has other handy security features such as a scheduling function for turning lights on and off.
As LiftMaster's vice president of marketing John Villanueva explains, the app ultimately provides homeowners with "greater peace-of-mind, security and access, whether they're on vacation, at work, or running errands."
