MyQ is First Garage App to be Integrated into EVE for Tesla Dashboard
Oak Brook, Ill. (January 9, 2018)- Tesla drivers will soon have convenient, dashboard access to the Chamberlain Group's MyQ® smart home features. Chamberlain Group, a global leader in access solutions and manufacturer of Chamberlain® and LiftMaster® garage door opener brands, announces a new partnership with EVE (Evolved Vehicle Environments), makers of the EVE for Tesla dashboard, to deliver in-vehicle smart-home capabilities in the new EVEConnect release scheduled for availability later this month.
Including MyQ technology in EVEConnect, an upgraded platform available by subscription, will enable Tesla Model S and Model X owners with internet-connected Chamberlain and LiftMaster MyQ-enabled garage door openers to be prompted to open their garage door with a single dashboard touch when their vehicle enters a predetermined geofenced area in proximity to home. MyQ is the first garage door control app to seamlessly integrate into the EVE for Tesla dashboard, providing new levels of convenience to Tesla owners. In addition, for added security, owners can check the status and open/close of their garage door from the comfort of their vehicle, as well as control smart home lighting.
"Tesla drivers are some of the most tech-forward people on the planet, so the addition of MyQ smart-home technology into EVE for Tesla is a very natural combination," said Jim Trainor, Vice President & General Manager, Automotive, Chamberlain Group. "The benefits of MyQ-enabled access control and geofencing features are going to be essential must-haves for the Tesla community."
"Everyone, at some time or other, has wondered whether the garage door was shut correctly," explains Warren Butland co-founder of EVE. "With MyQ soon to be integrated into EVEConnect, you'll always know the status of your garage door and be reassured that is closed. We're pleased to partner with Chamberlain Group to bring these additional benefits to Tesla drivers."
The new EVEConnect release integrates a variety of connected home devices and brands into one environment, allowing users to control locks, garage doors, lights, thermostats and more, all from the vehicle dashboard. Functions can also be automated to correspond with events like leaving or coming home, giving drivers peace of mind and added convenience.
The MyQ integration with EVE for Tesla's Premium Membership, will be available through monthly or yearly paid subscriptions.
