After installing automation locks on all of our exterior doors, I was thinking what the next project I should do that will be useful and it to automation my garage door.
I been doing searching and researching on this for the past 2 days on about this. I am quite disappoint to learn I own one of those "secured" garage door opener Craftman "yellow" learn button which mean I cannot just hook a relay switch or use any of the zwave opener since it will only work when wired to it's own "secured" door button on the wall.
In other word, who own newer garage door opener are screwed if it myQ enabled and pretty much all of the major garage door opener manufacturer is using myQ for Homekit, Google, or Alexa integration. I think that is why there is not much smart garage door opener on the market today because myQ pretty much have cornered the smart garage door market. You can read more about it at https://www.myq.com/smart-garage-hub
From what i figured, I have two choices but there may be third one however I don't know if it can be integrated into HE yet.
First choice - Get a myQ Internet gateway (it's not the same as myQ Smart Garage so don't confuse the two) https://www.liftmaster.com/828lm-internet-gateway/p/G828LM and use custom driver along with a zwave or zigbee tilt sensor. The searches shows this method sometime is spotty for other who have tried this method. Not supported by Homekit, Google etc ...
Second choice - Built a zwave or zigbee relay switch and sacrifice a garage remote control for the relay switch to operate along with a zwave / zigbee tilt sensor. @gavincampbell already did this with his garage door, you can read about it at DIY Garage Door Control Solution. I still want to be able to include it to my Homekit so I am not sure if it can be set up on Hubitat to work on Homekit as well. This is something I would most likely do.
Third possible choice - Wait until someone develop a custom driver for the latest myQ smart garage hub - https://www.amazon.com/Smart-Garage-Opener-Chamberlain-MYQ-G0301/dp/B075H7Z5L8/ref=sr_1_1_sspa which support Homekit, Google etc but my search come up empty but I read on Smartthing that it came be access using IFTTT however i just started with Hubitat so I haven't learn much about IFTTT yet. If you buy this from Amazon with Amazon key and a prime member, you will get 30 dollar in credit if your first package stored in garage using Amazon key so this would only cost you 5 dollar to buy, unfortunately, Amazon key is not available in my area
I really like third choice it if someone here already have one up and running with myQ Smart Garage and would share it with all of us how it done.
I am going to go ahead and do relay/remote control project because I like tinkering but I would need some help on setting up driver and rules for Zoo Muiltrelay and tilt sensor to work together hopefully that we can get it to work with Homekit API bridge. I do have the bridge working great with all my door locks. Adding garage door opener to it will make my wife very happy!
Any help or feedback will be greatly welcome here!!
