Chamberlain Group, Inc. (www.chamberlain.com)
announced today that its Chamberlain® MyQ® will be
among the earliest products to integrate with Nest (www.nest.com)
through the Nest Developer Program. As a Works with Nest product, MyQ
will allow users to easily and quickly set their Nest Learning
Thermostat™ to "Home" and "Away" modes from within the MyQ app.
Additionally, when people open the garage door upon arriving home, MyQ
can tell their Nest Thermostat they're home. When they close the garage
door on their way out, the thermostat can go into Away mode so they
don't waste energy heating or cooling an empty home.

MyQ empowers consumers to monitor and control their garage door anytime,
anywhere from their smartphones, ensuring their garage door is
closed and their home is secure. The garage door is one of the most
frequent access points to the home, requiring a level of security that
is the foundation of MyQ technology. MyQ is essential to the connected
home experience by allowing people to view, open and close their garage
door and receive alerts and notifications from anywhere.
"MyQ is designed to give people peace of mind that they've closed their
garage doors after pulling away, and to open the door to let people
in-even from thousands of miles away," said Cory Sorice, Strategic
Business Unit Leader-Connected Products at Chamberlain Group, Inc. "MyQ
isbuilt on a powerful and flexible platform that allows us to connect
garage door control with the most important home devices to deliver
greater security, comfort and energy savings. Whether do-it-yourself or
professionally installed, MyQ working with Nest will have people
thinking differently-and more confidently-about their homes. In working
with Nest, we're excited to help shape the development and direction of
the connected home."
MyQ is integrated into many Chamberlain garage door openers today, and
at retail through MyQ Garage™. Chamberlain
MyQ Garage is available at Amazon, Apple Stores, Best Buy, The Home
Depot, Verizon and other stores for $129.99. Chamberlain MyQ Garage is a
do-it-yourself product that installs in minutes without any rewiring,
and works with nearly all garage door brands made after 1993.

professionally installed garage door openers, available exclusively from
over 4,000 dealers nationwide. For more information on MyQ visit www.Chamberlain.com
