[Amazon] [Amazon US] MyQ Smart Garage Hub G0301 $32.99 + $11.37 (shipping, import) USD (or $60.63 CAD)

While it's not as cheap as the Amazon.ca deal back in July this year, this price is not too far off from $49.xx + tax. Note that this bundle only includes one myQ sensor, so those that have 2 non-myQ-enabled (compatible) openers, will need to add one more sensor.

I recommend you order this from Amazon Canada since you probably will be returning it. I bought one and it constantly lost contact between the door sensor and the hub. I returned it to Amazon as defective and got a replacement with the exact same issue. Read the reviews and you'll see lots of people with the same problem.

Great device if it works consistently for you, but for I gave up after two tries.

I haven't had any issues with mine in the 3 years I've owned it.

Will have to see how well it works when it gets here. However, I'm hoping I won't have to use the sensor (at least according to Chamberlain chat support) since both of my openers are myQ enabled.

The first time I started losing connection, I changed the battery and it started working perfectly again.

Also, I cut the buzzer out and covered the light on top to be more stealth. The hub is loud and bright when closing the door.

Same, works very well with Apple Watch as well. There's free 1-year Google Assistant subscription as well. At least it was a few months ago. Not sure about today.

I haven't had any problem with the one I purchased on prime day. I wonder if the connection issues people are having is from weak WiFi in their garage. I have Google WiFi mesh network with 4 access points including one in the room above my garage.

I did the same.. That beeping was ridiculously loud!

For those on the fence about this products, I have the door paired with my smartthings hub using a custom handler/smart app. At 11pm, my garage door automatically closes if the smartthings motion sensor in the garage doesn't detect any activity. This can also be achieved through Google Assistant (minus the motion sensor part) by creating a routine that executes at a specific time.
