Home security devices are becoming increasingly popular, but they’re also extremely pricey. Black Friday is an excellent time to purchase smart home security products because you can literally pay half of what you’d pay if you purchased the same device at retail price.
The MyQ Smart Garage Door Opener by Chamberlain is currently on sale for only $18 on Amazon. So for under $20, you can increase your home security and peace of mind. Keep in mind, this is a lightning deal, so it’s only available for a very short time period.
The MyQ device, which typically sells for around $50, basically turns your garage door into a smart garage door. It connects your garage door to Wi-Fi, so you can open and close your garage remotely from the companion app. You can also get alerts that let you know when your garage door opens and closes, so if someone enters your garage when they’re not supposed to, you’ll be notified.
MyQ by Chamberlain works with major garage door openers made after 1993 that have safety sensors, so you shouldn’t need to upgrade your existing equipment. MyQ is relatively easy to install, and you can typically get it up and running in about 10 minutes. The kit includes a Wi-Fi Hub with a mounting bracket, a power adapter, a door sensor, and the necessary hardware (like screws and fastening strips). All you need is a drill, screwdriver, and a ladder and you can install the MyQ Smart Garage Door Opener.
MyQ also works with smart home platforms like IFTTT and Google Assistant for voice control. Want to let someone enter your garage when you’re not home? You can give up to three people access to control your garage through the companion app. If you don’t have a smart lock, this is an extremely affordable way to grant guests access to your home. Another cool feature is the free in-garage delivery with a key. If you’re a member of Amazon Prime, you can even opt for free Amazon in-garage delivery and have your packages delivered securely into your garage if you live in select zip codes.
