Technology is ever-changing the way we live. It makes life faster, easier, and more convenient in many ways. Just as there are technological advances in just about every facet of life, garage doors are no exception. When new advances in garage door technology come out, we like to shine a light on them so you can know what the newest and latest options that are out there for you. This time we wanted to spotlight this advancement of garage door technology, MyQ Pet Portal.
While not exclusively involving the garage door, the MyQ Pet Portal was showcased at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) this year as one of Chamberlain’s latest developments (Liftmaster’s parent company). The MyQ system is the same system Chamberlain created to give you better control over your garage door and allows you conveniences such as Amazon packages to be delivered inside your garage and knowing when your garage door opens and closes.
This same kind of technology is now being applied to pet doors. The MyQ Pet Portal comes integrated in a select offering of Kolbe doors with material and color options. You can control the pet door remotely through the MyQ Pet Portal app, authorizing when your pet can go out, and you can monitor your pet’s activity through live video streaming and two-way audio. It’s easy to install, with no extra wires, but it does require bolting a bracket to your ceiling. The MyQ Pet Portal is compatible with Nest, Wink, Xfinity Home and Google Assistant.
