MyQ


The MyQ integration lets you control MyQ-Enabled garage doors through Home Assistant. Device names in Home Assistant are generated based on the names defined in your MyQ Device mobile app.

Configuration

Adding MyQ to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by using this My button:

MyQ can be auto-discovered by Home Assistant. If an instance was found, it will be shown as “Discovered”, which you can select to set it up right away.

Manual configuration steps

Binary Sensor

Your MyQ gateway will appear as a binary sensor that shows if the device is connected.

Cover

Garage doors and gates linked to your MyQ account will appear as covers.

Using HomeKit controller for local control - No Apple device required

If you have a 819LMB or 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.

If bridge is currently paired (otherwise skip these steps)

  • Open the Apple Home App to the Home that the MyQ device is paired with.
  • Touch the Home Icon.
