Garage door was randomly opening before myq. I bought myq to monitor. It happened to my wife this morning. I got 3 opens but no closed messages. Then I got alert door was open more than 5 minutes. I sent signal to close it and my wife drove back and checked and it was closed. What could it be that causes my garage to keep randomly opening. Is the 3 opens a clue? My wife says she waits until its fully shut before she leaves.

Chris - The symptom that you have described is called "Phantom Operation". There are a few things that can cause this type of problem. The most common causes are: possibly caused by a neighbor's remote being inadvertently programmed to your opener, a stuck button on a remote control, or a shorted wall-mounted door control sending unwanted signals to the garage door opener. I have included troubleshooting instructions below.
