OAK BROOK, Ill.—LiftMaster, a manufacturer of professionally installed access solutions has introduced its myQ Mobile Credentials, a solution that allows community residents to use their smartphones as a secure key for seamless entry across their property’s access points.
Residents using the new LiftMaster Smart Readers and/or Smart Video Intercoms to enable myQ Mobile Credentials with the myQ Community app offers flexibility to enter building access points, including front doors, elevators, parking garages, amenity rooms, and package rooms with their smartphone, while maintaining security and eliminating the need for physical credentials like key cards or fobs.
“The feature rich myQ Community app already makes life easier and safer for residents by offering them a seamless way to enter a property and share access with guests,” comments Jenny Lytle, general manager of commercial emerging business, LiftMaster.

LiftMaster points out that Multi-Housing News identifies keyless entry as the top digital amenity that renters will look for in 2023. The company boasts that solutions like myQ Mobile Credentials that leverage the smartphone as an all-access building pass foster a greater sense of security than physical keys because the solution is less likely to be lost, stolen, or cloned.
Moreover, for property owners, the company continues, solutions like myQ Mobile Credentials make it easier for property managers to specifically track who is entering a property.
The new myQ Mobile Credentials provides residents with three ways to gain access to a property when using their smart phones:
- Tap: Users can tap their smartphone against a reader or video intercom as if it’s a key fob.
- Touch: Residents can touch the reader with their hand while the smartphone is in a pocket or nearby.
- Alert: Residents can press the myQ Community notification Alert that appears on their smartphone when approaching the entrance.
LiftMaster emphasizes residents using the myQ Community app also have access to one-way video calling and two-way video voice communication to identify guests before granting access, recurring or one-time virtual guest passes, and a ”press to unlock” feature that allows residents to unlock authorized entrances remotely with their smartphone.
Other user conveniences the product update provides include smart-home friendly features such as Siri voice control that allows residents to seamlessly access a front gate, garage or front door hands-free with a simple voice command.
