Overview

Konnected’s new Smart Garage Door Opener blaQ picks up where myQ dropped the ball — making your Garage Door Opener Smart again with local, cloud-optional integration with your favorite smart home platforms. Designed for Chamberlain/LiftMaster garage door openers with yellow, red, orange, blue, purple, or brown learn button, including those with myQ built-in.

It can control the door and report back the actual status of the door (closed, opening, open, closing). For Security + 2.0 door openers, the obstruction sensors, light, wireless lockout and even motion sensing are also integrated.

Note some models outside of the US may not be compatible with Konnected BlaQ. Please reach out to Konnected to confirm compatibility before purchase.

As a local based integration if there is internet disruptions you will still have control / feedback over your garage door through Control4.
