After over a year of waiting, Chamberlain has finally released their HomeKit companion for their MyQ garage door opener system. Additionally, Fibaro has released an updated version of their water/flood sensor that also works with HomeKit. With these items, I’m finally able to consolidate my smart home a little bit more!
Back in Sept-2014 was when I first really got deep into testing some new home automation equipment. At that time I looked at all the hardware in my home and upgraded everything I could, such as the Rachio IRO irrigation system, and much more. Since then I’ve swapped in/out a few different home automation hubs, and in doing so have tested two of the most popular smart home garage door systems on the market today. Let’s compare them as we look closer at the Chamberlain MyQ MYQ-G0201 versus Linear GD00Z-4 units.
