Can someone help me understand the difference between the MYQ-G0201 and the MYQ-G0301? Am I correct that HomeKit support can be added to either version with the additional purchase of the MyQ HomeBridge? Thanks!

MYQ-G0301 is the upgrade to MYQ-G0201. The MyQ Home Bridge device delivering HomeKit compatibility will work with both products. Let me know if you have more questions. Lauren

does this mean, the MyQ home bridge is needed regardless if you have either G0201 vs G0301 for home kit compatibility.  I am reading this as if you need homekit you need both the 201 and homebridge or 301 and homebridge

PATEL, MyQ Home Bridge is the device created for integrating with HomeKit. MyQ Smart Garage Hub is the device that allows you to open, close, and monitor your garage door with your smartphone, and is not set up for HomeKit integration. Hope that clarifies things. Thanks, Chuck

Thank you.  I understand that.  I suppose I am inquiring about a way to schedule closing the garage door.  I am noticing some threads that this has been an issue for a long time.  I cannot use the app to schedule the door closing and the threads that I have read have same "we are working on a solution" responses.  Can you give more information?
Is there a compatibility with alexa?

Hi Luis,

What functions do you want to work together? Normally, people use either the remote or the app one at a time.  Is your remote control working fine on its own?

if I install this and choose to use the app obviously as I read the regular remotes won't be needed and I am fine with that except what happens if phone dies? Or internet goes down? how can I get into my garage? My outside keypad is like a remote. It sounds like it won't work?

Hi Craig,

We are looking into Luis' concerns regarding the app and the remote not working. However, if you have a remote programmed as well, it should work as well.

Sometimes the application comes interogacion sign or shows me low signal and I can not open the garage door.
I have to turn off my cell phone or restart it, sometimes it works sometimes not.
That is why my question is how to make the application and my remote control of my garage work together.
And I tried to setup the application and my remote control works only one of the two works.
I have to buy a new device so that it works both at the same time.
