Wink and MyQ

So I've got Wink to interface with MyQ and its worked out great. I can open and close my garage door with my apple watch, which is what I've been wanting to do since I got a MyQ enabled opener. 

The only thing I cannot get it to do is have IFTTT show my wink shortcuts for some reason. If I could get it to do that, then I can geofence an area to trigger my wink shortcut to open/close garage door. I will keep trying to get this to work while Chamberlain/Liftmaster figure out the error in their ways and make MyQ open to IFTTT natively.

Found this: http://www.wink.com/help/products/chamberlain-myq-garage-door-controller/

First question in the FAQ answers why: 

Why can't I create a Robot to open my garage door?
Wink does not allow you to open your garage door using a robot, as it poses a potential security risk. This is also the case for connected locks.

Sounds like BS (Camberlain cockblock) or they have no confidence in their authentication system.

I just tried to do this, which would be awesome, but I ended up at the same result as you......fail. It's definitely a restriction though.

Hello Scrimp212 – Thank you for being a MyQ customer. I am glad that you were able to use the integration of Wink and MyQ to get the Apple watch to open and close your garage door opener. In regards to your suggestion about IFTTT we will pass this on to our developers.

If you can add enable robots functionality too that would be great!

Agreed! If I could have a scheduler/timer, either with the MyQ app itself or wink or IFTTT and do some automation, then my whole house would be MyQ.
