JT, 

As of right now the MyQ Garage does not have the ability to close the door if it is left open for a certain amount of time. You can set up a notification to let you know if your door has been open for a certain amount of time and then use the app to close it. We are working on this for the future. There is not a door control that would give the PD220 that capability. 

If you have any other questions, let me know.

Any update on this?  I specifically googled auto close garage and this product came up.  I don't see why it can't just close the door if it sends an alert after an amount of time.

I'm not sure if this applies to you, but I saw that if you have a MyQ GDO with the smart 880LM control panel, it can be set to close the door after a certain period of time (I forgot what options are available).

If that works with your GDO perhaps you can use that. It also has a motion sensor to turn the light on automatically when it detects motion.

Hello – The MyQ Garage does not have the ability to automatically close the door. It would give you the ability to open and close the garage from the MyQ app or website. There is no way to add the Timer to Close feature to the PD220.

Any update on this? I would imagine it's a software/programming change. The alert is helpful, but auto close would be a very nice addition!

Chamberlin was too busy working on the paid IFFTT integration so they dont develop on their own app anymore.

Try the 880LM Smart Panel I suggested a year ago.

The PD220 is a Security + 2.0 opener and the 880LM says it's compatible with Security + 2.0 openers.

Buy an additional device for a similar chron job timer?  No thanks.  I am a developer.  This isn't a difficult feature to add.  They aren't doing it because they want you to buy additional products.

I would like this feature to and might return it for another that has it. I'm glad I can get an alert if left open for a period of time but what if I don't check my phone for an hour? I really want an auto close timer.
