How To Set Up myQ Alerts & Schedules

By:   Niki D'Angelo | Published:

Whether you want to schedule times for your garage door to close each day or be alerted when your door has been open for 10 minutes, the myQ® app can help. Set up push and email notifications and create schedules for your garage door today.

How to Set Up Alerts on myQ Garage Door Openers

To set up a text alert with myQ, you need to follow these simple steps:

  • Open the app and tap the + symbol.
  • Click on the “Notifications” tab.
  • Select the device you want to set an alert for.
  • Give your notification a name.
  • Decide what conditions need to be met to warrant an alert.
  • Choose notifications or delayed reminders.
  • Determine what times and days you want to be notified.
  • Select whether you want push notifications or email alerts.
  • Save your selections.

You can set notifications to go off when your garage door is open, closed or stopped. Or, you can choose to get alerts when the garage light is on or off. Decide if you want the reminders within seconds of the action or if you’d prefer a reminder after several minutes.

How to Use the myQ App Schedule

Aside from setting up basic alerts, you can also create myQ schedules in the app. Schedules allow you to automatically open or close doors, turn on or off lights, and more at specified times. To create a schedule:

  • Enter the myQ app and press the “Schedules” tab.
  • Tap the + symbol.
  • Select the devices you want to set a schedule for, then tap the arrow to continue.
  • Choose the action you want to be completed, such as locking, unlocking or closing the door.
  • Set the time you want the action to happen, then select the days.
  • Decide whether you want push or email notifications.
  • Name your schedule.
  • Click the “Save” button.

Now you have created a schedule for a particular action. You can create multiple myQ garage door schedules based on different activities, such as closing the door after you leave for work or turning the garage lights on five minutes before you normally pull into the driveway.
