Imagine that you are going away on a vacation and you now have the ability to open your garage door for your neighbor so they can feed your cat or water your plants. Or have you ever had the “I left the garage door open” moment? Wouldn’t it be comforting to be able to check and make sure that you closed your garage door without having to turn around and go back? Or, you are on your way home, it’s late and dark and you now have the ability to turn on some house lights just so you don’t come home to a dark house? Or even turn your lights on or off at certain times while you are away on that overseas trip to discourage any potential break-ins. You can do all this and more with the LiftMaster Internet Gateway accessory and one of the three new garage door openers that are equipped with all these innovative features. The Built-in MyQ Technology has the ability to communicate, manage and activate other MyQ enabled devices in your home. This gives the home owner greater control and security since you are now able to open or close the garage door or turn on or off lights using just your smart phone or computer from virtually anywhere in the world. With the Battery Backup, you’ll be able to get in and out of your garage even during a power outage.
The LiftMaster Internet Gateway works with the LiftMaster Models 8550, 8360 and 8500. All you need to do is use your internet-enabled mobile device, smartphone, ipad or computer to connect remotely to the LiftMaster Internet Gateway, the gateway then communicates with the garage door opener to open or close or communicates to your home lights to turn them on or off.
