Mitsubishi teams up with Liftmaster, Chamberlain to make your garage door smarter
The My Mitsubishi Connect platform has a new component that removes the garage door opener from your car's visor, cup holder, or anywhere else you may have it stashed in your car. The new myQ Connected Garage dynamic technology platform was developed by Chamberlain Group. It allows access to garage door functionality from within an infotainment screen.
The technology will debut on the 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, which was recently refreshed for the new model year. Users will be able to access myQ via the car's 8-inch infotainment touch screen, located at the center of the dashboard. The technology will also be available to 2018-2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross owners, through the My Mitsubishi Connect app.
"Today, drivers are limited by the ability to only open and close the garage door when they are within line of sight of the door," said James Trainor, Vice President General Manager of Automotive for Chamberlain Group. Chamberlain Group is the parent company of the Chamberlain and LiftMaster garage door opener brands and myQ connected technology.
"We are thrilled to partner with Mitsubishi Motors to help enhance the driver experience when it comes to garage control. myQ Smart Vehicle Access allows Mitsubishi to integrate smart garage control capabilities within the car's in-dash touchscreen, allowing drivers to safely control, secure and monitor their garage door from wherever they are on their journey. With myQ Connected Garage, they can stay connected to home and know that their garage is secure."
According to Bryan Arnett, Director of Digital Product Strategy for Mitsubishi Motors Research and Development Americas, customers have indicated that controlling their garage door through the infotainment system is one of the most highly desired in-dash features.
To get in-dash garage control, go to your My Mitsubishi Connect app and on the "Services" page, select "myQ Connected Garage." Here you will be able to see if you have a myQ smart garage door opener. If you do not have one, you can select "Add a Hub" within the app to purchase a myQ Smart Garage™ Hub, a quick and easy way to add myQ to an existing garage door opener.
