Rules and Notifications for Lift Master and Linear Garage Devices


If you're looking for ways to automate your garage door and receive notifications about its status, then you'll be glad to know that LiftMaster and Linear garage devices come with built-in rules and notifications. By setting up these features, you can ensure the security of your home and the safety of your family.


Rules and notifications are available for various functions of your garage door opener, including opening and closing the door, detecting when the door is left open, and monitoring the battery level of your opener. Here's a breakdown of the different rules and notifications available:


Opening and Closing the Door

One of the most useful rules you can set up is to automatically close your garage door after a certain amount of time has passed. This can be useful if you or someone else forgets to close the door, or if you want to ensure that the door is always closed when you're away from home. You can also set up rules to open the door automatically when you arrive home, or to close it automatically when you leave.


Detecting When the Door is Left Open

Another useful feature is the ability to receive a notification when your garage door has been left open for a certain amount of time. This can be helpful if you're worried about security or if you have pets or children who may wander into the garage. You can set up a rule to receive a notification if the door is left open for a certain amount of time, such as 10 minutes or 30 minutes.


Monitoring Battery Level

Finally, you can also receive a notification when the battery level of your garage door opener is getting low. This can be helpful in ensuring that your opener is always functioning properly, and that you don't end up with a dead battery when you need to open or close the door. You can set up a rule to receive a notification when the battery level reaches a certain percentage, such as 20% or 30%.


To set up these rules and notifications, you'll need to download the MyQ app and connect it to your LiftMaster or Linear garage door opener. Once you've done that, follow these steps:


1. Open the MyQ app and tap on the "Rules" tab at the bottom of the screen.

2. Tap on "Add a Rule" and select the type of rule you want to create (e.g. "Close the Door After 10 Minutes").

3. Follow the on-screen prompts to set the conditions for your rule (e.g. "If the door is open for 10 minutes").

4. Save your rule and test it to make sure it works as expected.


To set up notifications, follow these steps:

1. Open the MyQ app and tap on the "Menu" button in the top left corner of the screen.

2. Tap on "Notifications" and select the type of notification you want to receive (e.g. "Garage Door Left Open").

3. Follow the on-screen prompts to set the conditions for your notification (e.g. "Notify me if the door is left open for 10 minutes").

4. Save your notification and test it to make sure it works as expected.


In conclusion, setting up rules and notifications for your LiftMaster or Linear garage door opener can help you keep your home and family safe, and ensure that your garage door always functions properly. With the MyQ app and a few simple steps, you can set up these features and have peace of mind knowing that your garage door is secure.
