As we venture into the holiday season, most of us are scrambling to safely reinvent treasured family traditions and create a bright spot in what has otherwise been a challenging and stressful year. While 2020 was a tough one, your holidays don’t have to be. For those looking straight ahead to 2021 we have some great hacks for ending 2020 on a bright note. If you are still seeking ways to make this season bright and stress-free, here are some quick tips on how treating yourself to a myQ Smart Garage can help you through the hurdles of the holiday season and to have a Happy New Year! 

Santa Sees Everything, and with a myQ Smart Garage, You Will Too:  

He sees you when you’re sleeping, and knows when you’re awake, but if you ask us, Santa’s got nothing on myQ! With the LiftMaster Secure View Garage Door Opener and the myQ app, you have full view of what is happening around the garage, and always know whether or not you or a family member has left the garage door open. You can check the status of your garage door, plus open and close the garage door using the myQ app whether you are home or away. With myQ Guest, you can even craft your own Naughty/Nice list and securely and conveniently invite up to three people to control and check the status of your myQ connected garage door from anywhere. 

Make Your Schedule and Check It Twice (Or Whenever You Want) 

With the myQ app’s scheduling options you can finally enjoy a long winter’s nap (or at least have peace of mind) knowing that your garage door is shut and secure when you want it to be.  For example, you can schedule your garage door to close at a specific time in the evening so you can have a worry-free night once you turn the lights out. This is an easy way to keep your home secure, especially when you’re busy with the holiday rush. 

Shop Smarter and Protect your Packages with In-Garage Delivery: 

If you’re planning to do most of your holiday shopping online this year, like nearly 50% of Americans, it’s even more important than ever to be prepared with a secure and contactless delivery solution like Key by Amazon In-Garage Delivery. Amazon recently expanded the service to millions more Prime members in more than 4,000 cities across the United States. Ensure your gifts, decorations and everything else you need to have a safe and happy celebration are protected against damage, theft and weather. All you need is a myQ smart garage door opener linked to Key by Amazon app to have packages delivered directly into your garage.  

Let myQ Smart Access Devices Be Your Holiday Helpers: 

Whether you are looking for the perfect gift for family and friends or your own Santa’s Helpers, myQ powered smart access devices provide easy smart home upgrades that work seamlessly with your existing myQ Access Ecosystem. 

For extra convenience and security, the LiftMaster Smart Garage Camera can be easily installed and connected to a myQ smart garage door opener, adding streaming video, recorded events and 2-way communication to the myQ app. Yale | LiftMaster Smart Locks  upgrade existing locks with a keyless entry system that can be locked or unlocked anytime, from anywhere through the myQ app. It’s easy to see why these myQ Smart Access Devices make the Nice list. 

Seek Comfort and Joy in Your Home AND Garage: 

This year, our living spaces have become the center of all our holiday celebrations and activities. With everyone snuggled in at home, utilizing extra room and making home comfortable and cozy is more important than ever. If you are seeking some extra room to spread out, why not extend those hygge vibes to your garage? With plenty of fresh air, the garage is a sensible space for hosting loved ones while remaining socially distant. You can add space heaters, fairy lights and your favorite holiday drink to create a comfortable festive atmosphere. Cheers!
