Mina's Online Shopping Game Changer

Am I the only one who is hooked on online shopping? Whether it’s for Jack, my dogs, or even for work, my front porch is constantly stacked with packages! My neighbors probably think I have an online shopping obsession. Honestly, they’re not wrong! But when the weather starts to turn (it’s already started snowing in Indianapolis!), I want to keep all of those packages out of the elements.

Recently I discovered something that is going to change how I online shop FOREVER. Chamberlain’s myQ smart technology allows me to open my garage remotely from anywhere in the world. So, if I’m on a job site filming and someone needs to get into my house, I can remotely open my garage and let them in from my smartphone.

When I was in LA filming Rock the Block, I could have opened the garage door for my husband when he got locked out of the house. Instead he had to get a key from my sister, which isn't the end of the world but I’m definitely glad I can open the garage for him from my phone from now on. What’s even better is that myQ technology works exclusively with Key by Amazon in-garage delivery. When you link the myQ App with Amazon Key App, if you are an Amazon Prime member, you can select "in-garage delivery" at check-out. (Click here to see if you are eligible for in-garage delivery). This means my Amazon packages can be delivered directly into my garage! Game Changer!

In order to use the myQ App and take advantage of in-garage delivery you need a myQ-connected garage door opener. We decided to install a new LiftMaster Garage Door Opener with built in myQ technology.

However, you don't have to buy a new garage door opener. You can make your existing opener smart by installing a myQ Smart Garage Hub. The myQ Smart Garage Hub is designed to work with all leading brands of garage door openers and is super easy to install.

It only takes 3 steps! First attach the Hub to the ceiling near the garage door motor. Next up, there is a sensor that sticks to the top garage door panel. They even supply the sticky strips! Finally, just download the myQ App and connect to your Wi-Fi. That’s all!

Remember what I mentioned about free in-garage delivery for Amazon Prime members with the myQ App?cWell Amazon has this App called Key and when you link it to your myQ App you can get your Prime packages delivered right inside your garage. So now all my neighbors have no clue my online shopping obsession is alive and thriving. And all my packages stay safe and dry inside my garage.
