Are you trying to connect your Chamberlain MYQ to your Google Home? Look no further, because in this article, we will guide you step-by-step on how to connect your MYQ Chamberlain MYQ-G0401-E WiFi Garage Door adapter to your Google Home assistant. We understand that the process can be a bit confusing, especially if you have already tried the Google app and the “Works with Google” integration. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

Before we get started, make sure that you have already installed the MYQ app and have an account set up. Once you have done that, follow the steps below:

  1. Download Google Assistant: To begin, download the Google Assistant app from your app store. This app will be used to connect the MYQ Chamberlain MYQ-G0401-E WiFi Garage Door adapter to your Google Home assistant.

  2. Accessing the Menu: Open the Google Assistant app and tap on the three lines with three dots icon located in the top right corner. This will open up a menu.

  3. Explore More from Assistant: Scroll down in the menu until you find the option that says “Explore More from Assistant.” Tap on it to proceed.

  4. Search for MYQ: In the search bar, type in “MYQ” and tap enter. The MYQ Chamberlain MYQ-G0401-E WiFi Garage Door adapter will appear in the search results.

  5. Link Your Account: Tap on the MYQ Chamberlain MYQ-G0401-E WiFi Garage Door adapter and it will prompt you to link your account. Follow the on-screen instructions to link your MYQ account to Google Assistant.

After completing these steps, you will have successfully connected your MYQ Chamberlain MYQ-G0401-E WiFi Garage Door adapter to your Google Home assistant. However, there is a slight inconvenience with the integration as you will have to use the phrase “ask MYQ to close my garage door” to control it. But don’t worry, we have a workaround for this as well!

To make controlling your garage door more seamless, follow these additional steps:

  1. Open Google Home App: Open the Google Home app, which is the original app for controlling your Google Home devices.

  2. Create a New Routine: Tap on the plus button to create a new routine. You can name it whatever you like, for example, “I’m Leaving the Garage.”

  3. Set Actions: Inside the new routine, set the actions you want Google Assistant to perform when you say a specific phrase. In this case, you could set it to “When I say to my assistant, ‘I’m leaving the garage,’ please do the following: ask MYQ to close my garage door, turn off my lights, and stop my music playing.”

By creating this routine, you can easily control your garage door by simply saying “I’m leaving the garage.” Google Assistant will then execute the specified actions, including closing the garage door, turning off the lights, and stopping any music playing.

It’s important to note that while the MYQ Chamberlain MYQ-G0401-E WiFi Garage Door adapter works, it may not be the best option available. There are other garage door openers and closers that offer better integration and features. However, if you already have the MYQ Chamberlain MYQ-G0401-E WiFi Garage Door adapter, this guide should help you connect it to your Google Home assistant efficiently.
