Vivint Integrates Chamberlain Group myQ Smart Garage Control
Vivint’s partnership with Chamberlain Group provides customers with seamless control and monitoring of their smart home and garage from a single app.
PROVO, Utah — Vivint Smart Home (NYSE: VVNT) has integrated the Chamberlain Group’s myQ smart garage technology into its app.
Offering more than the ability to simply open and close a garage door from the Vivint app, homeowners with a myQ smart garage can benefit from alerts that let them keep track of daily comings and goings, according to an announcement. Additionally, integrating myQ technology with Vivint’s smart home system makes it easy to give secure access to visitors and package deliveries, the announcement states.
With myQ technology already integrated into Chamberlain and LiftMaster brand garage door openers, many garages are already equipped with myQ or have the ability to add the technology through a myQ Smart Garage Hub, according to the company.
The integrated Vivint smart home system includes a Vivint Smart Hub and smart locks, lights, thermostats, cameras, garage door control, security sensors, car protection and more — all controlled through a single app. In the COVID-19 era of increased online shopping, you can take advantage of contactless delivery by remotely opening the garage to allow drivers to place packages in the garage.
According to recent research from Strategy Analytics cited in the announcement, more than 50% of consumers in smart homes with garages find the idea of in-garage delivery extremely or very appealing.
“As the garage is an important extension of the home, securing it is an essential part of our smart home offering,” says Vivint CTO JT Hwang. “[Chamberlain’s] innovative leadership in smart garage access solutions, and impressively large customer install base, makes them an ideal partner. Integrating with myQ connected garage door openers allows us to provide more of our customers with a new level of safety and convenience.”
