Chamberlain Group, Inc. (www.chamberlain.com) announced today its new MyQ® app Account Linking center, offering access to and control of other connected devices around the home. MyQ Account Linking allows integration with the Nest Learning Thermostat™ today, with additional access to other devices in the coming weeks.
For the past three years, Chamberlain MyQ products have offered homeowners the ability to access, activate and monitor the security of their home. MyQ products are UL Listed under UL325, the leading standard for garage door openers, which ensures safe and secure remote closing of garage doors. Chamberlain’s track record in remote safety and security (critical when controlling the largest door in the house) enables it to play a key role in the connected home alongside some of the leading consumer electronics brands.
Beginning today, the Chamberlain MyQ app works with Nest, allowing users who opt into this integration to experience increased energy savings and comfort. When users open the garage, the MyQ app can tell Nest they’re home or away, so people don’t waste energy heating or cooling an empty home. Additionally, users can set their Nest Thermostats to “Home” and “Away” modes from within the MyQ app. MyQ app integration with Nest is available in all markets where Nest Thermostats and MyQ products are sold, with apps available for iOS and Android devices.
The MyQ Account Linking center will offer one-click access to multiple devices around the home, including lights and locks as a part of the Wink App integration, coming soon. MyQ technology offers homeowners an enhanced connected home experience by allowing people to view, open and close their garage door and receive alerts and notifications from anywhere.
“Our new Account Linking center along with live integration with Nest are the first steps in our broad and important connected home initiative,” said Cory Sorice, Strategic Business Unit Leader—Connected Products at Chamberlain Group, Inc. “MyQ technology is built using a sophisticated safety and security protocol that just isn’t found in other devices. Combined with the app’s sleek interface and flexible platform, MyQ products and the MyQ app incorporate connected-home technology that integrates easily with others. We’re thrilled to work with the top consumer electronics brands as a preferred partner in making the smart home a reality.”

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
