Chamberlain Expands Smart Home Footprint at CES 2017
Chamberlain Makes Leaving and Returning Home Smarter with MyQ Support of Lighting Products
Chamberlain has led the industry in establishing strategic relationships with multiple category innovators – Apple, Nest, Xfinity. The company's support of these partners increases the usability and value of the leading connected-home ecosystems by delivering new levels of convenience and control to consumers. Following are the CES updates to several of these initiatives:
In 2017, Chamberlain is bringing HomeKitä compatibility to MyQ-enabled devices. By July, Chamberlain will launch the Smart Garage Hub with support for HomeKit, a device that will allow users to open, close or check the status of their garage door, and turn MyQ-connected lights on or off using the Home app via their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple Watch, or by using Siri.
"The value of MyQ technology extends far beyond the garage, but into the daily fabric of families and their lifestyles in the home," said Cory Sorice, Vice President of Marketing for Connected Products and eCommerce at Chamberlain. "Through our growing product line, new features that add convenience and control, and expanding partnerships with tech leaders, Chamberlain has established itself as the industry's preeminent smart home innovator."
Additional Chamberlain innovations and advances announced at CES include:
In addition to the garage door, MyQ users can control Chamberlain lighting products with their smartphones. Connected control of lights through the MyQ app enables consumers to come home to the comfort and safety of a well-lit house. MyQ can control lights on or around the home's exterior, and in the home's living spaces. Chamberlain Smart Light Switches (http://www.chamberlain.com/
Convenient New Features
Chamberlain adds new levels of control and convenience to MyQ-enabled devices by allowing multiple users the ability to access and control MyQ products. The designated owner of the MyQ app can add up to two additional users to the system, each with their own specific access rights. Unlike other multi-user systems that send all alerts and updates to everyone with access, Chamberlain is smart enough to only send communications appropriate to each person's level of access – Account Holder, Home Occupant or Guest.
Chamberlain's new scheduling feature ensures the garage door will never be left open and users will never come home to a dark house again. MyQ users can create schedules for closing their MyQ connected garage door and turning MyQ lighting on and off at specific times. Text or email notifications can be scheduled when the garage door has closed or the lights have turned on or off. Ideal when the traveling, MyQ-enabled lights can be turned on and off at specific times, mimicking the presence of someone at home. Lighting schedules can also be set remotely, providing peace of mind even when homeowners forget to set a schedule before leaving home.
