Using the MyQ/LiftMaster Connection with SimpleCommands



SimpleCommands provides almost all of the features you enjoy on the MyQ app, but with ubiquitous and simplified control. Check in on your garage doors and open/close them from anywhere. You can even control your MyQ switches from anywhere.



Your MyQ Items are the names the MyQ garage door openers and switches. If the Item name is not to your liking can add a SimpleName and use that name instead.

  • I have Alexa and the account is linked with the skill successfully and MyQ is linked successful but everytime I try to give a command to open or close the door I'm getting Alexa errors

  • Hi K,

    Since Alexa does not directly recognize garage doors, make sure you are using SimpleCommands Routines to control MyQ through Alexa. Once you discovery these Routines make sure to phrase your commands like, "Alexa, start [routine name]", or, "Alexa, turn on [routine name]."

    Let me know if you have any more questions!
