I've previously written about my love for the Chamberlin My Q Garage Door opener and how I'm using it in my home. One of my few criticisms about the device is that it lacked support for HomeKit. Looks like that's changing. At CES, Chamberlin announced a new version of the product, the Chamberlin Smart Garage Hub that is Apple HomeKit compatible.
Perhaps even better, Chamberlin is introducing the MyQ Home Bridge that will bring HomeKit support to existing MyQ customers. This includes anyone who has the MyQ Garage (1st Generation), any Chamberlain Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener, or any MyQ Enabled Garage Door Openers that use an Internet Gateway. The hub will be available in April for an introductory price of $49.99 (regularly $69.99).
Adding HomeKit compatibility to existing product lines is impossible due to Apple's requirements. But device makers like Chamberlin and Hue have gained brownie points with existing customers by allowing them to upgrade their existing products by buying less expensive bridges. Good on you, Chamberlin. Now I wish other Smart home device makers would take note.
Now, about Echo support...
