Opening your garage door with one click is the order of the day. But do you automatically open your garage door just in time so you can roll up the driveway? This is a rare thing that will require a smart controller for your existing system. Just today, you can get the latest version of the best smart garage controller you can buy, Chamberlain’s myQ smart garage door opener, on Amazon for just $ 20.
That’s $ 10 less than the MSRP and the best price yet in 2021, but also only $ 2 more than the all-time low. The deal price ends just before midnight Pacific time on Monday evening Pacific time.
We reviewed a previous version of the Chamberlain myQ garage door opener in 2019 and gave it four stars out of five and an Editors’ Choice Award. “MyQ’s great capabilities and rock-bottom price make it an easy, premium choice for smart garage control,” we said. To date, it remains the top recommendation in our roundup of the best smart garage controls.
This newer version is an incremental upgrade over the previous version with a more compact design and a newly triggered mounting plate for easier installation. It also includes Bluetooth Low Energy integration which is supposed to make initial setup a little easier. The company says this controller will work with most major brands of garage door openers made after 1993 as long as they have standard safety sensors.
We really liked the original version of this garage door opener controller. With the new improvements and the $ 20 impulse buying price, we recommend this as a great upgrade to your existing setup. Remember, you have to pay for an extra sensor for a two door garage!
