HomeKit compatibility will enable users to open, close, or check the status of their garage door, and turn MyQ-connected lights on or off, using the MyQ Connected Home app on iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. Siri voice commands and HomeKit scenes will also be supported on compatible devices.

The MyQ Home Bridge will have an introductory price of $49.99, and cost $69.99 afterwards.

At this point I still don't see the value in Homekit integration. Individual apps still work best for me.

The Chamberlain group is the corporate parent company to LiftMaster, Chamberlain, Merlin and Grifco. They also supply Sears/Craftsman. Liftmaster brand is generally pro installs and Chamberlain the DIY. I would think that the DIYers would have the worse reviews.
