Chamberlain today announced the launch of a new version of the MyQ Smart Garage Hub, which is designed to allow smartphone users to control their garage doors from anywhere using the accompanying MyQ app.

The MyQ Smart Garage Hub, which connects to a home Wi-Fi network, is compatible with most brands of garage door openers manufactured after 1994. The new MyQ Smart Garage Hub supports improved communication between the hub and the garage door sensor, enhanced sensor battery monitoring, and automatic identification of available Wi-Fi signals to make installation quicker and easier.

"The MyQ Smart Garage Hub was developed in response to customers' requests for improved Wi-Fi connection reliability and enhanced communication between the door sensor and the hub. And, it further develops our line of secure and reliable connected products," said John Villanueva, Vice President and General Manager of Residential Access Solutions at Chamberlain Group.

When paired with the MyQ Home Bridge, the MyQ Smart Garage Hub also works to enable HomeKit compatibility so the garage door can be controlled via Siri commands. The MyQ Home Bridge, released in August, pairs with the new MyQ Smart Garage Hub, the existing MyQ Garage, or a MyQ-enabled garage door opener.

The MyQ Smart Garage Hub is priced at $99.99 from the Chamberlain website, and for a limited time, Chamberlain is offering a $20 discount on a $150 bundle that includes both the MyQ Smart Garage Hub and the MyQ Home Bridge with the promo code SGHHBPCK20.

I will never connect a door lock or door opener to the internet unless the answer is true to the following question:
Would I bet my life and those of my family that these devices can’t be hacked?

can ≠ should
If someone really wants to threaten my life and those of my family they could use a fairly low tech solution to circumvent the security on my home: a rock through the window successfully hacks the security of most home windows. Also a hammer or sturdy piece of wood.

Most GDOs operate by RF anyway which is certainly as susceptible to attack. Do you manually open and close your door garage door?

And why couldn’t this new version include built-in HomeKit support to begin with? o_O

Put in code SGHHBPCK50 to get $50 off, essentially you get the hub bridge for free. Just got mine. This is for the $149 bundle.

So, whats the difference between the Smart Garage Hub and just the MyQ Garage previously reviewed here: https://www.macrumors.com/review/chamberlain-myq-garage-home-bridge/ Is this just an updated version of the MyQ Garage? Both require the Home Bridge to integrate with Homekit

To make things less clear... the description here: https://www.chamberlain.com/ces seems to indicate that homekit compatibility is included.

UPDATE: The garage door sensors have been updated to. Unfortunately, the new sensors are not yet for sale individually yet. If you have more than one garage door, you'll have to wait to add them.

Confirmed that you can get a $50 discount, but had $13 shipping. Both units for 112.98. Looking forward to hooking this up. Maybe I should have tried SGHHBPCK100.

We just put an ecobee4 in the house and we're loving it.

Should be noted that $100 is just about half the cost of an entire garage door opener with WiFi built in
