I got a new home recently. And for the first time in my life, I have a garage! And a smart garage door to boot! However, if I want to integrate the rest of my stuff into it (like IFTTT or the Google Assistant), I have to pay $10. Per year. Per integration. You can sort of get around that by setting up a Google Assistant applet in IFTTT (two integrations for the price of one), but when I tried their free one month trial, it turns out you can’t even use their partner integrations to open your garage door– only to close it. Lame sauce.
Fortunately, @thomasmanduchira was able to sniff the traffic on the MyQ app and document the MyQ API. Here are my instructions setting up a proxy API to allow me to control my garage door from any device I want, however I want, wherever I want.
