With the new iOS 12 coming out by September, one of the coolest features is the shortcuts App. Within Shortcuts, you have the ability to define which action to perform in which order. It leverages a concept similar to the "Workflow" App. It would be really helpful if there was a way to integrate the MyQ app for smart garage hub in the scenario as follows

1) Shortcuts uses Siri as a baseline
2) I could define a shortcut which would - Open the Chamberlain App, authenticate automatically, navigate to the available garage doors, open or close a specific garage door by Name. 
3) The app would perform the action and close out. 

I am not a Homekit user and do not find value for it since most devices dont work with it anyway. I also find it silly for Apple to make you use a special chip and make a device just to enable homekit. This will be an acceptable workaround for most people. 

Happy to participate in Beta Testing if you would like. Thanks and looking forward to hearing from your team.
