MyQ App & Garage Temperature

Huge, missed opportunity here...  Why doesn't the MyQ App show the temperature in my garage.  I could trigger alerts based on the temperature.

I just purchased and installed the B970.  It has the door controller with the temperature readout for the garage.  That's great that I can see the temperature in my garage..... while I'm in my garage, lol.  But I thought I would be able to monitor the temperature via the MyQ App, which is what pushed me to get the B970 over the B550 or B750.

I store temperature sensitive items in the garage, and it would be nice to be able to monitor and alert based off of the temperature sensor built-in to the GDO unit.

YES! This would be a great addition and very useful. I really wish I had this feature while we were on vacation so I could monitor if my garage was getting close to freezing.

The ability to monitor the inside temp of the garage would be most helpful via My Q please add!

@Johnny, is the thermostat version homekit (Apple) or Google Home (Android) (not sure which device you use). capable?  If so you may be able to get that data and control your GDO through say home kit.  I've done some of the beta testing for the MyQ team, but outside of testing, I almost never use the MYQ app. Everything I do with the GDO or other devices is controlled via Siri or the Apple HomeKit app. I have my GDO and a couple of other devices in my "Garage" room and I can review and interact with them on a single page.

@Scott Weidig , there's no thermostat.  The Chamberlain B970 has a thermometer built-in to the door control pad.  It has a screen on the pad that reads-out the temperature in the garage, among other things.  As far as I know, that temperature data is only available as a readout on the door control pad.  It should be made available via the internet connectivity to the MyQ App, IFTTT, GA, etc.  If this data were made available through MyQ, you would be able to check the temp in your garage, or even set alerts.

FWIW, I'm an Android user, with Google Home devices.  I have no intention of paying a subscription service to Chamberlain for the linking though.  It's ridiculous that they charge a monthly/yearly fee for something as simple as IFTTT for example.

Cheers!
