  • Hey Brian (Simple Commands), I’m not seeing “generic garage opener“ in the add items list, only the my q account connection. Which, just like the comment above, allows me to login, states that it has successfully logged in, but then does not load any of the devices.

    Are we to understand that you are aware of the issue and are working on a fix?

    Thanks!
