Can MyQ disable alarm system when I open garage door?

When I come into the driveway and open my garage door using MyQ from
Liftmaster/Chamberlain, can it also disable my Abode home security
system? Using Apple HomeKit?

I don't want my alarm system going off when I open/enter garage. I don't
want to manually have to both open garage and disable alarm.

Thanks in advance.

If your alarm is connected AND HomeKit compatible (maybe with a physical ou virtual hub), yes.

Mine for example, with envisalink and homebridge, I have a scenario « arriving at home » which light up the house, turn off the alarm and unlock the main door.
Adding the garage door is a finger click away :)

I would imagine it’s possible by setting up an automation when the door opens to disarm. But only if the alarm is HomeKit compatible and disarming is an option in HomeKit.

The issue is ultimately when you leave you have to open your garage door and that too would disable the alarm

You would have to then manually rearm it with HomeKit/Siri

You could also set automation to arm when the door is closed but then it’s also armed when you’re home and away.
