myQ FAQs

1. What is myQ Technology?

myQ is Merlin’s Internet Activation and Monitoring Protocol for garage door systems.  With this technology, a smartphone or tablet can be used to monitor and control your garage door opener from anywhere in the world.


2. Can I connect a myQ opener directly to my phone or computer?

No.  You must use a myQ Gateway connected to a home router. The router must have a continuously active internet connection (also known as broadband internet).  A dial-up connection is not acceptable.

3. What are the necessary items required to establish a residential myQ system?

The Merlin myQ Connectivity Bundle includes:

  • The myQ Gateway Kit with power pack and cables.
  • The Protector System (Safety IR Beams).

The homeowner requires:

  • A home router with continuous Ethernet connection port.
  • Smart device to activate the opener.

4. Can any other device be controlled with the myQ Gateway?

Only myQ branded devices such as garage door openers and the myQ Remote LED Light  specifically with myQ technology can be controlled with the myQ Gateway.

5. How do I connect to the app?

Download the myQ app from your smart device’s App store.  Go to Apple App Store or Google Play; Android – go to the Android Market.

To receive Push Notifications from your garage door, ensure the Notifications are activated in the Iphone Settings menu.

Tip 2

To receive Event History information, the Alert option in the myQ App must be active.

Tip 3

When using the phone App, limit the Alert Name to 14 digits, otherwise all the history message will not appear.

Tip 4

Refreshing the App occasionally by logging out and logging back in with the password, will ensure the latest upgrades have been added.

In the garage, keep the IR Beam area clear to avoid accidentally blocking the safety beam system and creating a false alert.

If you are having issues with your internet service, you are still able to OPEN and CLOSE your garage door locally, with the remote controls.

Tip 8

Solid Green Led on the Gateway indicates it has connected to the internet.

Tip 10

One Gateway module can pair with up to 16 garage door openers, provided they are located at the same site and within radio range.
