  • Updated 3 years ago
I have a Craftsman 1/2 hp 139.53985D with a purple learn button. According the to following webpage, http://www.chamberlain.com/chamberlai..., this garage door should be able to pair.

When I click the learn button, the MyQ app on my Android phone just spins for a minute or so and then says that it cannot connect. I have the MyQ device and wireless router literally sitting on top of the garage door opener.

When Sears says all their openers are MyQ, that still doesn't answer the question of if its include or merely upgradable.

In addition to Z-Wave, I would also check out Wink.   Wink directly supports MyQ in addition to a lot of other stuff.

Thanks, I tried Wink, which looks like it supports many products. Wink does not support Chamberlain lights, just the garage doors that mine needs a controller.

Chamberlain called today to confirm what I need to do to have my garage door MyQ. They do not have a date to add timers to the light which I will wait for. Not use but Chamberlain tells me just changing the on wall controller to the 888LM will give me the MyQ control. I would like to add that control.

HarrySamuel - For a purple learn button opener you will need the 888LM (MyQ Control Panel and the Internet Gateway 828LM. We do sell a Connectivity kit for our Chamberlain version which is part number CIGCWC. Here is more information. http://www.chamberlain.com/smartphone-control-products/smartphone-connectivity/myq-internet-connecti...

Donald - Yes, the MyQ-G0201 is compatible to a purple learn button. What error message are you getting when you try to add the device?
