I have the MYQ-G0201.
At least I got the free HomeBridge Hub for being registered on the MyQ forums because they promised HomeKit support then dropped it.MyQ wrote: We have identified a system issue with myQ Garage (MYQ-G0201 / 821LM) and the myQ App scheduling feature. For garage door openers that require a door sensor, we have seen low batteries prevent the door from closing as scheduled. Since security is our top priority we are disabling the schedule-to-close feature for all myQ Garage users until further notice. We are working to address and fix this system issue. The Smart Garage Hub (MYQ-G0301/821LMB) and Chamberlain/LiftMaster Smart Garage Control (MYQ-G0401 / 821LMC) are not affected by this issue.

I find it handy if I get a package delivered when I'm not home. They ring my video doorbell and I can open the garage to let them leave the package and then close it after.

I've let friends and family in through the garage when running late and even to pick up tools and drop things off for me. I also like the alert if I've left the door open past a certain time or it's been open for x-amount of minutes/hours I get an alert. We make the kids take the trash out in the evening and they sometimes forget to close the door. The alerts are handy.

Good point. I think the idea behind not allowing voice commands to open a garage door is so that it doesn't happen accidentally. I think that's their logic anyway.retrojimmy wrote: ↑ I have this. And I don't like it. Using the app to open and close is good. The notification from the app is good and quick. Only thing that bugs me is that I cannot say "hey Google, open the garage." That don't work. Even telling Google to close the garage don't work. You have to say "hey Google, tell MyQ to close the garage."
You can try using the app Simple Command, but they are currently having issue linking to Chamberlain.
It's a small thing, but it bugs me. I managed to have a work around using routines from Google Home and Tasker. But it wasn't straight forward and easy to set up. But now telling Google to open or close the garage works the way I like it to.
Edit: saying "hey Google, tell MyQ to open the garage," won't work as well. Something to do with security/safety purpose.

The old sensor does work with the newer hub. That is exactly how I installedES_Revenge wrote: ↑ These always go on sale for cheap in US--either B&M HD stores (which you can't get to easily these days) or Amazon.com (which will ship to Canada). These days it's the newer model that's being sold more often there. This looks like the older model but nice to see it's cheap and available locally/off-the-shelf.
As a note the newer sensor (white) will work with the older hub, but the opposite is not true. The old sensor will not work with the newer hub. So if you get the old model and want to add a second sensor you can use either. However the catch there is the old model is less reliable and more problematic with things like randomly opening, and opening instead of closing.
When these go on sale on Amazon.com (i.e. US site) usually the kit (hub + one sensor) is cheaper than buying a single sensor. You can also use two hubs and two sensors (two complete kits), if you want to.
Each hub only controls a max of two doors (with an additional sensor), doesn't matter which version. Therefore if you have a 3-door garage you'd have to have two hubs and three sensors.
