It may feel like school break just started, but summer is winding down and back-to-school season is on the horizon. Whether you are making the most of summer’s remaining days to spend quality time with your kids (check out our myQ Summer Bucket List for fun ideas), or are desperately counting down their return to the classroom, back-to-school is a hectic time. Having a connected smart home access ecosystem like myQ can simplify the management of after school activities, hectic schedules, and surprise homework assignments that are all part of a busy school year.
Here are some ways that myQ can help make back-to-school easier:
1.Earn an A+ On Morning Drop-offs
Getting kids ready in the morning is a battle on the best of days – not to mention during those first days back-to-school. With so much to remember on the way out the door, the last thing you want to worry about is whether you closed the garage door or locked the front door. With the myQ app, you can control, secure and monitor all your myQ connected entry points- even from the carpool line.
2.Get Ahead of “Surprise” Homework Assignments
“It’s due tomorrow,” is the last thing you want to hear from your little scholar at 9:00 P.M. on a Sunday.

Parents who have a myQ connected smart garage door opener with a built-in camera or a free-standing Smart Garage Camera can watch live streaming video or recorded events on their phone, and can even greet their kids with two-way audio communication as they return home.
