Does Home Bridge Replace the Internet Gateway?

  • Updated 7 months ago
So I have about year and half old garage door openers chamberlain on my 2 single doors. They have WiFi on them and purchased a internet gateway last year but never installed it due to complains and everything I read on the forums of not being HomeKit. So I was debating on selling it now since I’m getting the Home Bridge... do I need the internet gateway still for my 2 garage doors?

I don't think so, The HomeKit enabled bridge replace your current bridge/gateway. But before doing anything, look at this post : https://myqcommunity.chamberlain.com/chamberlainmyq/topics/canada-homekit-bridge?topic-reply-list%5B...

3hours ago, the community manager offers free home bridge to the community (I think you're eligible !)

Hi Matthew, openers that a MyQ logo AND a wi-fi logo do not require a gateway. Your openers will connect to the internet without any additional equipment. With that said, if you would like to add HomeKit compatibility to your garage door openers, you will need to add the MyQ Home Bridge.

Thank you, I guess I will just wait for the Home Bridge to come so I can hook it up to my HomeKit and Apple TV

Roger, in order to use Siri with your B970, you will need the MyQ Home Bridge. Here is a link: http://bit.ly/2xQj655 

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks, Chuck

I have a WD962KEV, and my gateway just died. If I get a Homebridge, do I still need another gateway?

I just had 6 Chamberlains installed with MyQ. 3 of them have Wi-Fi built in and 3 don’t. The 3 that don’t do have MyQ logos on them. Do I need an internet gateway for them?
