MyQ App and notifications: can I be notified if a door/gate is open after a certain time?

Is there a way via the MyQ app (or the fledgling IFTTT integration) to receive a notification if a garage door or gate is open (i.e. in the state of  being OPEN, as opposed to being triggered to OPEN)?  I'd like to be informed at 'bedtime' if any of my doors are still open.

(Alternatively, is there a way to have automatic actions sent a specific time (such as 10 pm ) to close all doors?)

Thanks!

(I have a 828lm hub for 2 8550w myq garage door openers and a driveway gate.)

You can do this with IFTTT, however MyQ for some reason wants to charge for an IFTTT subscription. 

Look for the fine print at the bottom of this page: https://www.myq.com/ifttt.html

You can do this without signing into FTTT, simply go to Alerts in MyQ app, create an alert, set your conditions i e. Alert if garage door is open after X minutes select push or email alert and Save

you can do this without signing into FTTT through the MyQ app. Go to alerts, create an alert. Set your conditions IE garage door is open and turn off toggle by as soon as it happens. This will bring up the option to set a time interval. Set the time, choose push or email notification and Save. You can also go into schedules and set a rule to automatically close the garage door at a specified time
