Chamberlain will not do the integration with Alexa, they feel they have got us already and we will live without it. Only thing a company like this understand is profits, if we start hurting their bottom line I can assure you they would create a API. Stop buying their garage door opener or their MyQ Garage. Start returning these things and buy another brand and I can assure they will start listening to their customers!

Sadly I already purchased 2 with the hope and expectation they would do the right thing.  I was wrong and it's pretty clear the company is stuck in the 90s.    My garage doors are the only item in my home that I can't control with my voice or smart awareness at this point, otherwise I live a pretty cool automated life. Chamberlain seems to be the last holdout of embracing modernization, and we all know what has happened to most companies that have failed to keep up, no matter how big (Sears).   Eventually a competitor comes along and fixes it when the vacuum exists.    

I was able to warn someone else in Lowes a couple months ago that asked me about this integration so they didn't make the same mistake as me.

I was in Home Depot today and walked out without the MYQ because the salesman told me it will not work with Alexa.  I can not believe that the company would block access to Alexa.  My bet is there will be a lot of these returned in the coming weeks due to people receiving the MyQ as a gift and finding out you can not use it with Alexa.

At one time a few months ago there was a skill that worked but Chamberlin forced its removal.  So they have the skill ready to go but refuse to release it.
