LiftMaster® Internet Gateway: Your Simple Solution to Home Control

How the LiftMaster Internet Gateway Works 

Our new garage door openers have brains AND brawn
The LiftMaster® Internet Gateway elevates our Garage Door Openers to a whole new level.

The MyQ®-enabled LiftMaster® Internet Gateway is your simple solution for home control. It utilizes two-way communication technology which allows you to connect to and control your garage door opener, gate operator, or home lights by using an Internet-enabled smartphone, tablet or computer from anywhere, any time.

Just imagine if you forgot to close your garage door, need to let the service or repairman in when you're not at home, or you are on vacation or at the office. LiftMaster MyQ® technology gives you control from anywhere!

And our four new garage door openers – the LiftMaster® Elite Series® 8550 and Premium Series 8360 with Battery Backup, the Elite Series® Model 8500 Wall Mount opener, and the Premium Series 8355 – are the only ones in the marketplace with MyQ® technology built right in. This offers you a new level of home activation as opposed to an expensive, hardwired home automation system. Watch our video and read below to learn more.

MyQ What is MyQ® Technology and Why Is It Special?


Just imagine being on vacation and having the ability to open your garage door for your neighbor so they can water the plants and feed the cat. Or being able to check and make sure you closed it after leaving for your business trip overseas. Or even having the ability to turn some house lights on when you're on your way home, just so you don't come home to a dark house. You can if you have the LiftMaster® Internet Gateway accessory and one of our four new MyQ®-enabled garage door openers – model 8550 and 8360 with Battery Backup, model 8500 Wall Mount Garage Door Opener, or model 8355 Belt Drive.

Built-in revolutionary MyQ® technology has the ability to communicate, manage and activate other MyQ®-enabled devices in the home. This gives you greater control and security – you can open or close the garage door or turn on or off lights using your smartphone, tablet or computer – from anywhere, any time. 

How It Works
The LiftMaster® Internet Gateway (model 828LM) works with garage door opener model 8550, 8360, 8500 and 8355 (these models have a yellow learn button), and gate operator models CSW24V, CSL24V and LA500. Models 8550 and CSW24V shown below.

Use your Internet-enabled smartphone, tablet or computer to connect remotely to the LiftMaster® Internet Gateway. The Gateway then communicates with the garage door opener or gate operator to open or close, or communicates to home lights to turn them on or off.
