Get Ready for the Holidays with myQ and Amazon Key

October 4, 2022

Calling all holiday bargain hunters.  As you gear up for holiday deals, make sure you are setup with the myQ app and Amazon Key In-Garage Delivery.

Why should you take a few seconds to get setup with myQ and Amazon Key In-Garage Delivery?

A recent survey* by Chamberlain Group found 74% of homeowners take security measures to avoid having a package stolen, including canceling plans/staying home from work to wait for the package or having it delivered to a friend, family member or neighbor’s home. With myQ and Amazon Key, you don’t have to reorganize your day or worry about packages going missing and groceries being left out in the rain. Packages and groceries are securely delivered to the garage where they stay until you are free to get them.

Amazon Key is a secure garage delivery solution that adds convenience and peace of mind to daily life. Your package is the key to your garage, giving a trusted and vetted delivery driver one-time access – no need to give them your garage code or be around to let them inside. And, in order to move on to their next delivery, drivers must ensure the garage door is closed once the package is delivered. It’s easy, safe and secure.

With the busy holiday season on the horizon, now is the perfect time to setup myQ and Amazon Key so you can have holiday packages and groceries conveniently delivered to the garage – which can also be leveraged as a hiding space for presents. Here are steps for getting setup with the myQ app and Amazon Key to ensure you are ready for the holidays.

1.Look up and link up.

Amazon Key In-Garage Delivery works with myQ smart garage door openers. You might already have one and not even know it!

 Look up to see if your garage door opener already has myQ technology. If there is a myQ logo and a WiFi logo, or it says “powered by myQ” on your garage door opener, download the myQ app and follow the steps to connect your opener(s) to the myQ app.

Then link to Amazon Key in the myQ app. When you add your holiday bargains to your cart, select “FREE Key Delivery” at checkout to receive your deliveries in your garage. A multi-step authentication process verifies the driver, package and package location before granting temporary one-time access to your garage.

2.No myQ, no problem.

All new Chamberlain and LiftMaster brand garage door openers come with integrated myQ technology. If you’re handy and want to install it yourself, look for a myQ smart garage door opener by Chamberlain at leading retailers like Amazon, Home Depot, Lowe’s and Menards. If you want it professional installed, contact your local LiftMaster dealer – go here to find one near you.

Getting a new smart garage door opener that works with the myQ app and comes with the latest bells and whistles – like integrated LED lighting, quiet motor, a built-in camera and battery backup – can be a real game changer for you and your family. Not only will it work with Amazon Key In-Garage Delivery, but with the myQ app you can monitor, open and close the garage door from anywhere with your smartphone or within select vehicles’ in-dash garage control features.

Not in the market for a new garage door opener? The myQ Smart Garage Control connects your existing garage door opener to myQ. You’ll see its pretty simple to do!

3.Add a myQ Smart Garage Camera.

Keep an eye on your deliveries and watch them happen in real time when you add a myQ Smart Garage Camera to your smart garage door opener.  The myQ Smart Garage Camera adds streaming and recorded video to the myQ app so you can see who is coming and going when you’re not home.

*Chamberlain Group commissioned an online quantitative survey among a nationally representative sample of 1,000 US adults ages 18+ who wone a house with a garage.
