MyQ Scheduling allows you to set up a schedule to close the garage door and turn on
and off lights with compatible MyQ accessories at specific times within the MyQ account.

Create a schedule on the MyQ Home Control app
  1. Tap the Action bar
  2. Tap Schedules
  3. Tap the +
  4. Name the schedule
    Tip: The notification for the schedule will only indicate that it was "triggered" but will not indicate what action was taken. If scheduling a light, consider naming it with "off" or "on" in the name. A "triggered" door schedule will only be for a closed door.  
  5. Under Set my, tap on Add Device and check the device you want to add a schedule to. For the lights, select if you want to turn on or off. Tap on the Back to get back to the schedule.
    Note: For both, on and off, you need to set up two separate schedules. One for on and one for off.
  6. Under At this time, tap on Time and choose the time. Tap on the Back to get back to the schedule.
  7. Under On these days, tap on Day and choose the days (will default to all 7 days). Tap on the Back to get back to the schedule.
  8. Choose the type of notification you would like under Notify me by
    - Push notification
    - Email
  9. tap SAVE

Create a schedule on the web site

  1. Under Schedules, tap the +
  2. Name the schedule
  3. Under Set my Devices, select device to add to schedule
  4. Under At this Time, select time for schedule
  5. Under On These Days, select days to set schedule
  6. Under By Sending Me, select notifications type, push notification or email
click Save

Raymond - I will look this issue and see if I can find out more for you. 

Lou -  At this time, the MyQ app does not allow users to schedule their door to open.

I have my schedule set up to turn a light on/off.  On my account history it shows the triggers are working but the light does not respond to the commands.  I am using the Android app on a Samsung S6.

If the door is already closed, my close schedule is actually opening the door.

The scheduler is still not working. I get a scheduling error every time I try to set it. I've been waiting about 4 months for a fix to this issue. The schedule feature is the #1 reason I spent the money on this device, but it appears I was misled by Chamberlain. Is a fix coming, or is Chamberlain intentionally misleading their customers?

This feature doesn't work.  Every time I try it I get a Save Schedule Failed. I will be returning it to purchase another product.

Lauren,  This seems as though this is a known issue that's been out there for some time.  Is there an ETA for a fix?  If one is not forthcoming, I'll have to be returning this unit which is a shame as it does everything else I needed it to do.
Thank you,
Jeff

So what is the story here? Is Chamberlain going to fix the scheduling app? I can't tell if the battery issue in the sensor is a real problem. My sensor is working, so that would seem unrelated.

Auto close is an important function of the My Q garage door control. 

If this glitch in your app is not going to be corrected please let me know so I can return my purchase to Lowes for a full refund.

It appears Chamberlain's media department needs to get it together. I purchased this unit specifically to schedule my garages to close. Evidently I should have read the community forums, not the marketing pitch (on the actual packaging) to learn it actually doesn't do what it says...nice work!

I have bought the Garage door opener with MyQ and we are quite happy.  Before we invest in the light switches we are trying to figure out if you can set multiple schedules for going on and off.  Such as our porch light go on/ off in the evening and On/off in the morning.

Hi Derek, so glad you are happy with your new garage door opener.  Here's an article that covers how to create a schedule in the MyQ app: https://goo.gl/7WMQSM  Of course, let me know if you have any other questions.   Chuck

I have been trying repeatedly to set a schedule. The app keeps telling me that due to security concerns it is not possible to set a schedule. What is going on?

A few years ago MyQ allowed this function for about 1 month.  The issue is that the sensor will not transmit a reliable "close" or "open" condition if the battery is low.  Owner's doors would open on a close schedule if the door was physically closed.  All MyQ and your normal door openers do is complete the circuit and the door either goes up or down. You know this because the button on your garage does not have a specific open or close command.  This happened to me while I was at work.  My neighbor called 2 days in a row saying my door went up at 9:00 AM. This is because my sensor battery was low and didn't detect that the door was closed.  It opened it instead on my 9:00 AM close door schedule.  This is a huge liability to MyQ.  Someone could gain access to your garage and house because through an unintended open door.  Until MyQ can detect the battery voltage and report a correct low battery instead of just counting ups and downs like it does.  They can't allow a schedule to modify an action on the door.  I'm looking at other door openers that have a fail-proof detection system like a photo-cell or my favorite, distance detection sonar.  None will use a battery powered sensor.
