MYQGATEWAY development? Is it dead?
« on: May 07, 2017, 10:50:42 pm »
After reading many messages on the forum it looks like there was an update to the MYQGATEWAY 1.36 back in Feb 2017, but the app does not work.

Anyone have any additional information?

Thanks

Development on the MyQ gateway has more or less ceased. Chamberlain/Liftmaster has never offered any support. To the contrary, they have done their best to break 3rd party apps. As clearly shown back in February when they changed the API several times, breaking 3rd party apps in the process.

The MyQ gateway truly was a community plugin as a number of people contributed to it. Including myself. My Craftsman version of it died last January and I cannot get a replacement as they have been discontinued. I also have a zwave GDO (Telguard) that works just fine so I can't see spending $100+ to get a new MyQ setup that not only relies on the internet but also is owned by a compnay that wishes to lock it down.

My suggestion would be to get a Zwave garage door opener such as the Telguard or the model Lowes sells for Iris and use that.

I have seen other posts stating the MyQ plugin no longer works.  Just to share, I just used it to open my GD 2 days ago and it worked just fine.  It was also reporting the open/close status correctly.

Mine is still working also... It's the Chamberlain model. Accurately reporting and working with a garage door close to the house and another quite a bit away from the house...
