Elmhurst, IL, United States, 2014/07/10 - Letting consumers control their garage door opener along with other Wink - compatible devices from anywhere - Chamberlain.com.
MyQ Empowers Consumers and Puts Peace of Mind in the Palm of Their Hand; Garage Door Openers from Chamberlain and Most Major Brands to be Compatible with Wink.
Chamberlain Group, Inc. announced today that its Chamberlain MyQ will be integrated with the Wink app, which provides one quick and simple way to connect consumers with the products they rely on every day. Chamberlain MyQ empowers users to easily and confidently control and monitor their garage door anywhere and receive customized alerts when the garage door is open or closed.
Because the garage door is one of the most frequent access points to the home, MyQ is essential to the connected-home experience. MyQ technology brings peace of mind, security and control to consumers who may sometimes forget to close the garage door, want to open it from afar to let people in, or just keep a closer eye on their home from anywhere. Consumers with Chamberlain MyQ-enabled garage door openers or the MyQ Garage™ used with their existing garage door opener will be able to access and control their garage doors from within the Wink app.
“Opening and closing the garage door is so much a part of our daily routines that it’s hard to remember if we closed it on the way out, and MyQ strips that worry away,” said Cory Sorice, Strategic Business Unit Leader Connected Products at Chamberlain Group, Inc. “MyQ gives people peace of mind that their house is secure after they’ve pulled away, and more control over the biggest door into their home. As awareness and interest in the connected-home space increases, we’re excited to be among the trusted brands working with Wink.”
Chamberlain’s integration with Wink will launch this fall. For more information, visit chamberlain.com/wink-partnership.
