Please add IFTTT and potentially Echo integration. I would love to have geo-location enabled opening and closing of the garage door! Also it'd be great to ask Alexa to open, close, or check on the garage doors.

safety??? this is full BS...
I was at CES and saw Chamberlain, what they announced is poor!
how about making sure that the garage door is always closed at night, like after 10pm for example...
how about closing the door if it stays open for too long...
Having to buy hubs and // connectors, developping triggers and by-passes is not the solution... This kind of feature should be out of the box.
The MyQ app is also very poor, offering guest access and family members should be there.
I returned MyQ and switched to Gogogate... best decision ever

Really, Chamberlain? Your customers have been asking for years for IFTTT integration for the MyQ service, and after years of requesting, badgering and begging, you FINALLY set it up - but for a fee? What an absolutely astonishing and disgusting money grab. I don't have to pay a fee for any of my numerous other smart home automation links with IFTTT or other services - Why would I pay for yours? You won't even let me open my own garage door with your service!!!

There are other options. They may even cost more - but I refuse to pay a subscription to use my own garage door. Your management has clearly gone insane.

I will not spend another cent for one of your products from any of your companies as a result. I'll also be sharing my sentiments with everyone I know. Chamberlain, as a company, is slow to meet current technology, tone-deaf to customer requests, and greedy besides. Is that worth the $1/month you wanted?

Mr. Baumann, just wanted to let you know the the Corporate Communications team has received you emails and have shared your concerns with the management team. I understand your frustrations and will keep you updated on any new information I receive. I'm sorry I have nothing more specific at this time. Lauren

I am in agreement with Mr Dan Baumann Jr I will not be purchasing any more Chamberlain products.  Furthermore I will recommend to my friends when asked to purchase some of the other Ifttt compatible products.  It is a shame that Chamberlain chooses to charge for this service.  Chamberlain folks have a lot to learn about customer service.  Shameful!

Lauren, how many times are you going to relay our complaints before you realize that Corporate Communications does not care and is not going to do anything about it?
