I would like to see a myQ channel added to IFTTT to allow integration of myQ with home automation applications.

Chamberlain really slow out of the door on this one.  We've been asking for a long time, they're simply not interested apparently.

I have noticed the same thing.  In earlier posts, they would actually respond that they are looking into integrating with IFTTT,  That was from posts up to a year ago. 

Chamberlain has fallen behind and lacks the expertise and/or vision to become the kind of company that will keep their products relevant in the home automation industry. 

I highly recommend you look elsewhere if you are interested in anything but their native app to control your environment.

You can connect your My Q to the Wink hub and use IFTTT. The only thing you can't do is make the door close with IFTTT, you can make lights and other things work.

Really, Chamberlain? Your customers have been asking for years for IFTTT integration for the MyQ service, and after years of requesting, badgering and begging, you FINALLY set it up - but for a fee? What an absolutely astonishing and disgusting money grab. I don't have to pay a fee for any of my numerous other smart home automation links with IFTTT or other services - Why would I pay for yours? You won't even let me open my own garage door with your service!!!

There are other options. They may even cost more - but I refuse to pay a subscription to use my own garage door. Your management has clearly gone insane.

I will not spend another cent for one of your products from any of your companies as a result. I'll also be sharing my sentiments with everyone I know. Chamberlain, as a company, is slow to meet current technology, tone-deaf to customer requests, and greedy besides. Is that worth the $1/month you wanted?
