Have you ever wondered if you left your garage door open after leaving the house for work? Have you ever wanted to let someone just into your garage to drop something off, but didn't want to give them the code to your key pad? Have you ever wanted to turn a light on in the house so that you aren't coming home to a dark house? Have you ever wondered what time your teenager really got home last night?! If you said "yes" to any of these questions, then you want the MyQ technology from LiftMaster! Currently it is available with the purchase of the Internet Gateway Accessory and can connect with your LiftMaster 8550 (Belt Drive Opener with Battery Back-up) of LiftMaster 8500 (Residential Jackshaft Opener) and a router.

Yes, LiftMaster supports HomeLink. If a car was manufactured before 2006 with HomeLink you will be required to purchase a repeater kit in order for their car to work with the LiftMaster 8550 opener. These kits are available from Hamburg Overhead Door at no charge with the purchase of a new LiftMaster 8550 opener. If your car was purchased between 2006 and 2012, you can check to see if the car is compatible with the 8550 by clicking on this link http://www.homelink.com/program/process if not you will need a repeater kit. In 2013, HomeLink should be compatible with all new LiftMaster garage door openers and will not require a repeater kit. If your car has Car2U (which has three yellow LED lights and can be found in some Ford and GM products), which is not supported by HomeLink or LiftMaster, the customer will have to purchase a repeater from Car2U. LiftMaster does not stock or manufacture these repeater kits, Car2U is not associated with LiftMaster or HomeLink, and LiftMaster has no agreement to work with Car2U.
