One of the things I started becoming more conscious about this year in order to try to make my family’s hectic lives a little easier was automating our home. I especially love and seek out devices that can be paired with a smart phone, since I rarely go anywhere without mine.
For the most part our family likes to enter and exit our home through our garage instead of the front door. Honestly it is a lot easier than giving our kids keys to the house that they could potentially lose.
My family and I travel frequently therefore it is very important for us to know what is going on at our home, even when we are not there.
Did you know you could control your garage from your smart phone?

Recently I was introduced to the Chamberlain MyQ® Home Bridge and I can’t believe I haven’t heard about this device sooner.
I will admit to you that I am not a very handy person, but I was able to easily install the Chamberlain MyQ® Home Bridge within less than 5 minutes on the inside wall of our garage. Once it was plugged in and turned on, I connected it to our wifi and the Chamberlain MyQ® Home Bridge was ready to go. The last step was to download the Chamberlain MyQ® Home Bridge app for iphone, which only took about 2 minutes.
Once that was up and running my husband opened up the garage door to test the Chamberlain MyQ® Home Bridge, and I was instantly alerted on my iphone that the garage door was open. There was also a running timeclock of how long it was open for. Being able to open and monitor the garage door from my phone is such a huge benefit, especially for safety reasons. I able to check on our home, as well as see if anyone (mainly my teenage son) has accidentally left he garage door open.
Check out these three additional benefits to the Chamberlain MyQ® Home Bridge and how it can truly help you automate your home:
1. Compatible with Apple HomeKit™, adding the ability to ask for status of garage door and control MyQ®- enabled devices with voice control via Siri®.
2. Helps put your home on autopilot with Apple HomeKit™. By connecting to Apple HomeKit™ the homeowner has the ability to control smart devices such as a thermostat or lights so they can be adjusted when opening or closing the garage door.
3. Ability to connect a garage door opener to IFTTT or Google Home.
