New: both the 8355 and 8360 residential door openers now come with built-in Wi-Fi
October 25th 2016
The 8355 (½ HP, belt drive) and 8360 (DC motor, chain drive) garage door openers now come with built-in Wi-Fi, right in the motor housing, instead of installing an Internet Gateway (828LM) which had been needed to use LiftMaster’s MyQ technology.
Since the invention of the automatic garage door opener, the technology behind this one-button-remote device has remained relatively simple.
But with the inception of the Internet of Things (IoT) came the MyQ garage opener from LiftMaster, one of the biggest manufacturers of garage door openers in North America. MyQ is LiftMaster’s answer to connecting your garage door opener to smart devices so they can be controlled from anywhere on Earth.
Does your neighbor need to borrow a pair of pliers from your toolbox? Now this can be achieved with just a tap. And for those of us who have left home more than once fearing they forgot to close the garage door, the MyQ home control app will alert you and let you remedy the situation.
