How Merlin’s myQ tech makes life easier for this busy family of five

Merlin’s myQ technology has been supporting busy working Australians for the past three years, and our technology is more convenient than ever in these chaotic times!

myQ smart technology is designed to conveniently connect you to your garage whether you’re at home or away. With the myQ App, you can monitor and control your garage door right from your smartphone, and get real time notifications from wherever you are. Even if you’re self-isolating or in quarantine, you can let the delivery driver into your garage to drop off your parcels or food delivery safely, ensuring contactless delivery.

Don’t take our word for it: Meet Graeme

myQ has become a stable in the Hughes household. For Graeme Hughes’active family of five (including a Tibetan Mastif cross Swiss Shepheard dog), no two days are ever the same.

“Like many households, we often are pulled in two, three or four different directions at the same time. Our commitments require exceptional communication and high levels of flexibility in the family setting. We love it and despite the pulling and pushing of schedules, we are very close knit and would not change it for the world,” says Graeme.

Graeme has been using Merlin’s myQ technology for over 12 months and has found that it completely integrates into his day-to-day life.

“myQ technology is like the helping hand in the home. We’ve used it not only to check if we’ve left the garage door open, but also to let family into our home when we’ve been interstate. It’s so convenient and means that nobody will ever be left outside,” says Graeme.

“We are also a very active family, and not having to take heavy keys or the garage door remote with you when walking the dog or going for a run is so impressive,” adds Graeme.

Security is paramount

Merlin’s myQ technology is equipped with the highest level of security features on the market.

“As a family, we are huge car fans and have a number of cars in our possession, so it’s so important that we can keep them safe in our garage. With myQ technology sending us real-time alerts anytime the garage is opened and being able to check if we left the garage door open, we know that our garage is secure,” says Graeme.

Safety first

myQ is not only a game changer in security, but safety as well. With children and pets in the home, it’s important to know that your garage door opener complies with Australian safety standards. In fact, a Merlin survey showed that 1 in 10 homeowners have had a family member or pet injured by a garage door, which proves it’s a significant problem in Australia.

Merlin’s range of garage door openers are fitted with the premium safety features, and myQ technology provides an extra level of safety. The myQ system comes complete with The Protector System (Safety IR Beams), which will reverse the door in 2 seconds in the event of an obstruction.
