Chamberlain MyQ Home Bridge
It's back up on their site, but yet again it does not give the option to order for Canada...only available in the US.

I purchased the new HomeKit Chamberlain MyQ Home Bridge from the states and had it shipped to a US address and installed it last week. The installation instructions that came with the unit is garbage and it took quite awhile to get it setup. However once setup it's great! HomeKit integration and I can add 'scenes/automation' with my other HomeKit accessories.

Depends on where you'd like to start. The main homebridge(not to be confused with MyQ Home Bridge) project is at this link https://github.com/nfarina/homebridge

If Touch ID is desactivated on myq app, does it still ask authentication? Also is the new myQ home bridge asking for the same? Is it really possible to open by voice without authentification?bubuski wrote: ↑Sep 4th, 2017 9:21 amOhh...one important tidbit I discovered after setting up the HomeKit-MyQ link is that Siri won't open or close doors without authentication. So unless Apple introduces voice authentication it means you still have to physically hold your phone to get the open/close feature to work. Without authenticating you can only ask for the door status.
No, the new myQ home bridge replace the old myQ internet gataway and keep same functionality but add HomeKit. You only need the new one and a receiver in garage, built in garage door opener or accessories onesakswun wrote: ↑Sep 6th, 2017 10:33 amI'm trying to figure this out without going through chamberlains site.
I personally have an older Chamberlain garage door opener. Keypad by the garage door, basic door opener in the garage and a couple of remotes. I think its the whisper quiet belt one.
So in order for me to have Homekit accessibility to my garage door opener I'm going to need the MyQ Internet Gateway & the MyQ Home Bridge? Basically one device to make my garage door opener internet capable and another device to make it Apple compatible?

With an Apple Watch, you can have the authentication disabled and allow Siri to open/close garage doors.

Just did a little research. My older model Chamberlain NON-myQ whisper quiet is NOT compatible with the homebridge accessory. You basically need a newer model MyQ garage door opener. I'm SOL until I commit to buying a newer opener. Meh!

You don't need MyQ to make it work with HomeKit. All you need as a device that can short two wires and communicate with your iPhone.
