Best solution for multiple doors?

  • Question
  • Updated 5 months ago
I have 2 separate single garage doors.  
From some reading I've done it sounds like I only need one of the openers to have WiFi, and the other needs to have integrated MyQ.  Can this be confirmed?  For instance could I get a B550 and B503, and have them both be "smartphone enabled", or would I need 2x B550?

Another question.  I was at Lowes yesterday, and they have the B503, and B730 (B730 is on a special right now).  While Lowes.com and Chamberlain.com both indicate these units have MyQ but no WiFi, the packaging at Lowes did not indicate MyQ, and the image shown on the box does not have the MyQ logo on the opener, as the image does on Lowes.com and Chaimberlain.com   Can it be confirmed that ALL B503/730 have MyQ, or is it possible some older model year or something are lacking MyQ?

Thanks!

Brandon, I can't answer your specific question but I would strongly recommend reading through this community postings before committing yourself to a Chamberlain system if you are wanting to integrate it with say Apple Home or Alexa ... they have not been very customer friendly or proactive in following the technology. Lots of prolonged promises, canned answers and where they do finally come up with something it ends up costing your more money and/or a subscription fee. Only providing at a cost what most of the smart home systems provide as part of the original product in most cases.

Just take the time to read the postings and see how that fits with what you want to do. There are other options that might better fit your needs.

Formerly a happy Chamberlain/Liftmaster customer for decades ... now not so much.

Thanks, can you confirm from my question above if B503/B730 have MyQ and can connect to a B550?  Do I need a Homelink bridge to work with a 2004 Lincoln Navigator factory Homelink system?

Thank you!

Brandon, as long as both openers are MyQ enabled (i.e. have the MyQ logo on the motor), you can pair your non-WiFi unit (B503, B730) to a WiFi unit (B550). First set up WiFi on the WiFi-capable unit and add it to your MyQ account. Then add the non-WiFi unit as a device. These articles may help: 

-- Connect WiFi unit to a home network: https://goo.gl/rBN6We

-- Add Device (MyQ motor unit): https://goo.gl/ye6Dyd

Regarding HomeLink, you will need a bridge in order to program your 2004 Lincoln Navigator into any Chamberlain MyQ or WiFi garage door opener. 

Let me know if you have any questions. Lauren

Why would you want Alexa to open the garage door? Anybody in earshot of the Alexa device could open the door. Chamberlain pulled the shill and capability for security reasons not financial.
