The best thing is to see how ideas for smart homes become products that solve everyday problems, This year, LiftMaster presented a whole range of Smart Garage products that extend the myQ experience, integrate Amazon Key Delivery and may finally make your garage a real space in your Smart Home.
Intelligent garage camera
If you already have an opener and just want to add a camera, LiftMaster offers the Smart Garage Camera, a standalone, white camera with a magnetic base and 140-degree wide-angle view. Attach the camera to the bottom of your existing opener and you're done.
The Smart Garage Camera can be displayed in the myQ app, where you can also control your garage door and display live feeds. You will receive warnings and recordings in 1080p HD if motion is detected in normal light or night vision. If you want to talk to the person in your camera feed, there is an integrated two-way conversation with adjustable volume and the option to activate or deactivate the sound. You can save video clips in a cloud storage subscription for seven or 30 days. The Smart Garage Camera will be sold at Liftmaster.com and retailers starting at $ 260 at the beginning of the second quarter.
LiftMaster Wi-Fi garage door opener
If you are looking for a new opener on the market, the LiftMaster Wi-Fi garage door opener takes over the technology of the Smart Garage Camera and integrates it into the opener. This black, round camera is located on the underside of the opener for a bird's eye view of your garage. The Wi-Fi garage door opener is sold by LiftMaster retailers for $ 450.
Delivery of Amazon Key in the garage
The delivery of Amazon Key in the garage is not new, but LiftMaster's approach with the new Yale | LiftMaster Smart Locks certainly seems to be refining it. Yale and LiftMaster jointly offer versions of the intelligent Yale locks, which are designed to extend from the garage to the inside of your home and are cause for concern for some people who are nervous about home delivery.
If your opener, camera and lock are set up in the myQ app, the system automatically locks your garage door with every delivery. If you wish, the entrance door can be unlocked after the delivery is finished as soon as the garage door closes. You will receive notifications and can view the live feed. You can enable blocked access for up to three people using the myQ Guest function.
There are two options: keyboard lever or touchscreen latch. Yale | LiftMaster Smart Locks will be available on Liftmaster.com and select retailers beginning in the second quarter at a price of $ 260 for a lock and Wi-Fi bridge.
If you love the idea of secure package delivery but are not yet ready to let someone, a smart garage option could be a good fit.
