LiftMaster Partners with Alarm.com to Integrate myQ Technology into Home Security System

LiftMaster is partnering with Alarm.com, a provider of connected home services, to integrate LiftMaster’s myQ technology with the existing Alarm.com interactive services platform. Now Alarm.com subscribers can remotely manage, monitor and control their garage door opener activity using the Alarm.com user interface, which provides control of all the home’s mission critical systems.

Through this exclusive relationship, Alarm.com subscribers will now have remote access of their garage door opener via the Alarm.com mobile app, whether the customer is in the driveway or halfway across the world. Subscribers will also be able to use the innovative Rules Engine from Alarm.com to automatically close the garage door when the security system is armed and receive instant notification if the garage door is left open too long.

"Alarm.com is always looking for ways to extend the value of the platform to improve homeowner safety and security. Integrating LiftMaster garage door opener technology, myQ, into our current product offerings is a natural extension of home safety and control," said Jay Kenny, vice president of marketing for Alarm.com. "It’s exciting to bring new innovation to homeowners through our exclusive partnership, making everything connected so you’re always in control and aware of what’s going on at home."

Equipped with LiftMaster’s patented technology, customers of the Alarm.com connected home platform will now have the ability to:

  • Automatically close the garage door when the security system is armed
  • Receive notifications if the garage door has been left open or check in anytime to know if it is open or closed
  • Use the Alarm.com mobile app to open or close the garage door from anywhere in the world  

The products include safety features when a garage door is being controlled remotely and out of sight to the user. An audible sound and flashing light are activated before the door closes so anyone nearby is aware the door is about to operate remotely.

"LiftMaster is devoted to creating the highest-quality, seamlessly interconnected products and services for our customers, bringing them peace of mind in their everyday busy lives," said Bob Heisner, vice president of marketing for LiftMaster. "This partnership with Alarm.com extends our ability to offer the ultimate in control, security and safety to more security dealers and installers as well as residential customers."

The integrated capabilities are available to Alarm.com customers with LiftMaster garage door openers manufactured after 1998.
