With Parse Push, Chamberlain Informs Consumers that Their "Garage Door Just Opened"

Garage Door Opener Notifications Bring Peace of Mind and Awareness Over What's Happening at Home with More than 20 Million Alerts to Smartphones Every Month

ELMHURST, Ill., March 25, 2015 -- Chamberlain Group, Inc. (www.chamberlain.com) announces its integration with push technology from Facebook®'s Parse to notify consumers of daily garage door activity. Knowing the status of the garage door is highly valuable as the garage is the primary home access point for more than 70 percent of homeowners. Using Parse's mobile app technology, the Chamberlain and LiftMaster MyQ apps alert users when the garage door opens, closes, or has been left open for a preset period of time.

Chamberlain MyQ, the world's most widely used technology for connected garage door control, gives people valuable insights into their family's home and away activity, such as when kids arrive home safely from school, or if the garage door has unintentionally been left open. More than 20 million notifications are sent to consumer smartphones each month using Parse Push, which demonstrates both the power of the technology and the advantages such notifications have in bringing home awareness and peace of mind to consumers.

"Our work with the Parse Push service gives MyQ users peace of mind by connecting them to family activities as they come and go from home," said Cory Sorice, Vice President of Marketing for Chamberlain Connected Products and Ecommerce. "MyQ is built securely and intuitively to support garage and gate access systems that benefit from a link to those coming and going moments-such as turning on lights or changing thermostats when you arrive home, or putting your house into 'away mode' when you leave. MyQ puts home control and peace of mind in consumers hands."

MyQ is at the Center of the Connected Home

Chamberlain has announced partnerships with some of the leading consumer electronics manufacturers and home-improvement retailers, including Apple HomeKit, Nest, SmartThings, Wink and others to be announced.
