I have 2 new garage door openers. One is a Chamberlain B550 with built in wifi and the other is a Liftmaster model 8500 My Q without wifi. Can I control the 8500 through the B550 as an accesory My Q device?

Lauren, thanks for responding.  I have not yet heard from a customer service agent.  Please let me know if it is possible to utilize the WiFi in the B550 to connect the 8500 to the linkmaster My Q app.  Thanks!

Ryancarrie, I think I have the information you need. Yes, you can use the WiFi from your B550 to add your 8500 model to the account. You would just add it as another device. Let me know if you need anything else. Lauren

Lauren, that is good news. I've tried to add it a few different ways. Please direct me to the instructions to link/learn the 8500 to the app via the internet connection in the B550.
Thanks, Ryan

The
model 8500 is compatible with new Security+ 2.0 remote controls. The
8500 comes with the 888LM MyQ Control Panel. There are two causes that
may be the problem with pprogramming to an 8500.


  • Remote compatibility

  • The location of the learn button
