It’s the summer holidays, which means it’s a time to get away and have some fun!
For many families, it often takes several reverses out the driveway as family members run back to check the house or search for forgotten essentials before you’re finally on your way!
Among all the chaos of getting out the door, you can cross ‘checking if the garage door is closed’ off your list with myQ. Merlin’s myQ technology helps monitor your garage with 24/7 monitoring and sends you real-time notifications when your garage is accessed, so you can take action if something isn’t right.
Here are four other ways Merlin can give you peace of mind while you’re on holidays.
24/7 monitoring and real-time notifications
With Merlin’s myQ technology, your garage door is constantly monitored. You can check the status of your garage door in the myQ App at any time, and real-time notifications are sent directly to your phone or Apple Watch whenever your garage door is opened or closed.
Give a friend access to your home
If anyone needs to access your home while you’re away, to water the plants, put the bins out or bring in the mail, it’s easy and convenient to let them inside! Just use the myQ App to remotely open and close your garage from wherever you are in the world.
Monitor your garage’s access history
If your friend is doing you a huge favour and checking in on your home, there’s no need to bother them with a phone call to make sure everything is okay! In the myQ App, you can easily check when your garage was last accessed, so you can have peace of mind that your home is being looked after.
To view your history in the myQ app:
Log into the myQ account
Tap the menu bars on the top left
Tap on History
Make it look like someone is home
If you have the myQ Remote LED Light, you can schedule the myQ App to turn the light on periodically, giving the illusion that someone is home to ward off would-be thieves.
