This guide assumes that you have already purchased the MyQ plugin from within the automationbridge interface, and that you have setup the MyQ device on your network and have it working with your garage door.
Step 1 - Add the plugin via the Network Devices/Plugins page
Step 2 - Select the correct brand of your MyQ device, enter the username and password for your MyQ account, then click Next.
Please note that you must select the correct brand to match your device, otherwise the plugin will not work correctly.
Step 3 - The bridge will now connect to the MyQ cloud servers and retrieve details for your MyQ gateway and any connected garage doors.
Step 4 - When the connection has completed, you will be shown a confirmation page as below, this will outline the devices found and any associated global variables that have been created.
Clicking the OK button will now return you to the main Settings page of the Plugin.
From here it will show you the connected status of the MyQ platform, and the status of each device. If you add/remove or rename any garage doors, just click the Sync Devices button, this will then add/update as required the Fibaro Virtual Devices.
You will now find that you have new devices in your Fibaro controller, the Garage Door will have the OPEN & CLOSE buttons, along with some other info fields to show if the device is online and when it was last updated/checked for its status.
The Garage Door device is available to be enabled for voice control with Google Assistant, Alexa & Siri. With Google & Alexa this will appear as a switch, for now you need to use the ON & OFF actions (where ON = CLOSE, OFF = OPEN). With Siri, this will appear as a Garage Door device with the normal Open & Close actions.
You can include the Garage Door control into scenes as required, for example make sure that the Garage Door is closed each night at 11pm, just use either the butCLOSE or butOPEN objects.
The plugin also creates some global variables that can be used in scenes, eg when the garage door is opened or closed, or when the gateway goes offline. To see what the names of the variables are, just click the blue i icon beside the Fibaro ID.
In the example below, there has been a variable created for each device, for the Gateway you have available the variable STATUS_XXX where XXX is the ID of the Fibaro Device
For a Garage Door, you will have a variable STATE_XXX, where XXX is the ID of the Fibaro Device
These variables can then be used in scenes to trigger other actions, for example this scene sends a notification when the garage door is opened (only runs when the variable is changed from 1 to 0)
Likewise you can use the STATUS_XXX for sending a notification when the MyQ Gateway/Hub devices goes offline for any reason.
