This app will work with customers that have Xfinity home service and a Chamberlain garage door.
How is Works
The way MyQ works is it allows the user to control and know the status of the garage door. Whether it is open or closed, it can be controlled from the phone. This also works as a home security feature. Home owners will never have to worry if they forgot to close the garage door when they left because they can check on their phone. MyQ is now available for both Android devices and iOS.
MyQ will give notifications every time the garage door opens or closes. This will make users feel safe about their home when they are not home. It is like an alarm system in its own way. Xfinity Home app does not have push notifications as of yet, but they are planning to include it in the app in the near future. But MyQ has this skill in its tool belt.
