Beyond enjoying the many luxury features available in a modern Mercedes-Benz, you can connect your vehicle with the myQ® Connected Garage service — often included with Mercedes-Benz vehicles at no additional cost. Linking your car to myQ will allow you to operate your home garage door using the MBUX Voice Assistant. Any Mercedes-Benz with a center display screen and the MBUX Voice Assistant is compatible with myQ.
How to Connect myQ to Your Mercedes-Benz
Connecting myQ to Mercedes-Benz vehicles is easy — simply follow these steps:
- Check your garage door’s compatibility: Most modern garage door openers are compatible with myQ — especially those from LiftMaster and other Chamberlain Group brands. You can use the myQ Compatibility Tool to verify.
- Connect your garage: Use your smartphone to download the myQ Connected Garage app. Then, follow the steps within the app to register the garage with the myQ service.
- Ask to link your vehicle: Inside your car, ask the MBUX Voice Assistant to link your myQ account. Say, “Hey Mercedes,” then dictate your command after the listening tone sounds. Your instructions will prompt a quick response (QR) code to appear on the display screen. Scan the QR code using your smartphone to view the myQ sign-in page.
- Complete setup: Sign in to the myQ app, then follow the steps within the myQ website to finish connecting your vehicle.
What Can You Do With myQ Connected Garage and a Mercedes-Benz Vehicle?
The myQ Connected Garage offers a host of convenient options for Mercedes-Benz owners. After connecting your myQ account with your vehicle through the MBUX Voice Assistant, you’ll have access to a few tools for monitoring and operating your garage door.
Garage door operation is one of the most valuable features available through myQ. With this service, you can view garage door controls on your infotainment screen. You’ll find a button that you can tap to close or open your garage door on the spot. You can also program your door to open or close automatically when you reach or leave a specific distance from your garage.
Control and monitor your garage through the myQ interface that displays whether the garage door is opened or closed. Now, you can rest assured knowing you shut your door rather than assuming. Plus, you can easily close your garage if you accidentally leave it open.
