The MyQ integration lets you control MyQ-Enabled garage doors and/or lamps through Home Assistant. Device names in Home Assistant are generated based on the names defined in your MyQ Device mobile app.
Adding MyQ to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by using this My button:

If there wasn’t any discovered automatically, don’t worry! You can set up a manual integration entry:

Garage doors and gates linked to your
MyQ account will appear as covers.
Lamps linked to your
MyQ account will appear as lights.
If you have a
MYQ-G0303-SP, Home Assistant can speak HomeKit Accessory Protocol and control the device over the local network without the need to access to the cloud service. As a bonus, updates are push and near-instantaneous.
