After an introduction at CES in January, and an expected launch date of April 2017, Chamberlain's MyQ Home Bridge has today been made available for users to purchase. For users already in the company's MyQ ecosystem, the MyQ Home Bridge will upgrade any MyQ garage door opener with the addition of Apple's HomeKit.

This will allow users to control their garage door with Siri, set scenes within the Home app, and connect a MyQ garage door opener with other HomeKit-enabled devices, so users could make a smart thermostat or light bulb adjust accordingly to when their garage door opens or closes. The company also has a series of MyQ lighting accessories that can be connected to HomeKit, and be controlled with an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Apple Watch.

HomeBridge Feature 2x

The MyQ Home Bridge adds smartphone control to your MyQ enabled garage door openers (without built in Wi-Fi) and MyQ lighting. Get peace of mind knowing the main access point to your home is secure. This easy to install product allows you to check the status or control your MyQ products from anywhere.

Never worry again if your garage door is left open. Plus, this product is compatible with Apple HomeKit and Siri Voice Control. If you are an existing MyQ user with an Apple device, upgrade your garage door opener and MyQ lights with HomeKit to make your smart garage even smarter.

Following CES in January, Chamberlain-owned company LiftMaster announced that all of its residential garage door openers will be upgradeable with HomeKit compatibility thanks to the new MyQ Home Bridge. Chamberlain itself also announced a Smart Garage Hub aimed at new members entering the MyQ ecosystem of products, but that has missed its July 2017 launch date and it's unclear when it might debut.

Those interested can purchase the MyQ Home Bridge from Chamberlain's website for an introductory price of $49.99, which will rise to $69.99 sometime in the future. The device's page also has a full list of compatible garage door openers and a quick start guide for installing a new Chamberlain device in your garage.

1. Website crushed for everyone else?

2. So what exactly do I need for an old school (but compatible) opener? Just this next to my opener? This + internet gateway? This + old bridge + internet gateway?

I have a relatively new (purchased 3 months ago) Liftmaster opener that works with the MyQ iOS app. The free app tells me whether the door is open, and allows me to open/close it remotely.

Why would I spend $50 just to be able to open/close the door with Siri?
To consolidate everything into the home app, access from control center, use Siri, create automations..

You might not care for it, but there are plenty who do. The garage door is one device. But once you have many home automation devices from many manufacturers, it can get annoying having to jump into several different apps to perform such actions.

Stinks, I bought the old bridge and looks like it won't work with HomeKit.

So it looks like MyQ Home Bridge ($50 now, $70 later) requires MyQ Garage Door Opener ($130). Isn't there a bundle that packages both? Seems silly to not update MyQ Garage Door Opener with a new hub that doubles as a bridge.
