Both parties will need the myQ app, as the feature is not available through the myQ website. Send an invite, and the user will need to accept it within three days. Once everything is set up, they’ll be able to switch between their own account and yours, no password sharing required.  Family Share is free, unlike Chamberlain’s $1 per month Google Assistant and IFTTT subscriptions. The feature won’t work with commercial door openers. For more information on myQ Family Share, visit Chamberlain’s website.  CNET Smart Homelast_img
