Chamberlain Helps Control the Smart Home from its MyQ App: Introduces Account Linking Center and Nest Thermostat Integration

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.”

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
