Connect your Garage Door Opener to MyQ:
A Step-by-Step Guide
The myQ app is a convenient tool that allows you to remotely control your garage door from your smartphone. If you have a compatible garage door opener, you can easily connect it to myQ and gain the ability to open and close your garage door from anywhere.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to connect your garage door opener to myQ:
- Make sure you have the necessary equipment. In addition to your garage door opener, you’ll need a myQ Smart Hub and a Wi-Fi router with an active internet connection.
- Download the myQ app from the App Store or Google Play Store on your smartphone.
- Follow the instructions in the app to create a myQ account and link it to your Wi-Fi router. You’ll need to enter your Wi-Fi password and may need to enable “smart home” or “works with” permissions in your router’s settings.
- Once your myQ account is set up, you’ll need to install the myQ Smart Hub. Follow the instructions in the app to connect the Smart Hub to your Wi-Fi router using an Ethernet cable.
- Identify the make and model of your garage door opener. If you’re not sure what type of garage door opener you have, you can usually find this information on a label attached to the motor unit or on the manual that came with the opener.
- Follow the instructions in the app to connect the opener to the myQ Smart Hub. You may need to press a button on the opener or enter a code from the app to complete the connection process.
- Test the connection by using the myQ app to open and close your garage door. If the connection is successful, you’ll be able to control your garage door remotely from your smartphone.
That’s all there is to it! With a compatible garage door opener and the myQ app, you can easily control your garage door remotely, giving you added convenience and peace of mind. Additionally, if you’re a myQ user, you may be interested in the convenient service of Amazon Key In-Garage Delivery. This service allows you to have your Amazon packages delivered directly to your garage, providing an extra layer of security and convenience.
To use Amazon Key, you’ll need to have a compatible garage door opener that’s connected to myQ.

Once the package is delivered, the delivery driver will use the myQ app to open your garage door and leave your package(s) inside.
