App-enabled garage door openers have been well-received thanks to the help of the Chamberlain MyQ® garage controller. Users of the MyQ® Garage controller have become familiar with opening and closing the garage door with an app. But the MyQ® isn’t ready to call it a job well done. The MyQ® Homebridge is the newest addition to the MyQ® ecosystem and with it comes Siri® voice control, Apple Home app control and so much more.

Some of the first things to become easier include unlocking doors, turning on and off lighting and keeping track of schedules. MyQ® Home Bridge adds opening and closing the garage door to the list of things that can be done with your voice. The Home Bridge turns already installed MyQ® Garage Door controllers into Apple HomeKit™ compatible devices.
