Thanks, won't ask for your personal experience again.

Ask anything. I was tasking my memory.... went through my apps. I know this stuff is not static. I just didn't want to post bad info.

No problem. Spent a lot of time Googling, prefer the knowledge of people who have been there, done that (you been there, you done that, in most things I've got in mind)

I love the myQ, hardware and software. I like their app. The app alone has saved me several times... where I would have circled back to make sure I closed the door. I've also used the myQ app to open the garage door so my step-daughter could drop something off.... while we were away from the house. Of course.... my camera setup is also on a phone app... and I have a camera in the garage as well.

I used to use a voice alert when the garage door was open. More than a decade ago I used Bill's Voice Commander.... for voice control and alerts. Now I depend on the ding/chime that myQ selected for me. But if [the garage door is] left open I also get an email on my phone with a unique sound. There is also options for automatic closing... etc..

I am now controlling my setup with a Homeseer, Hometroller. Two CM15A's, the new X10 WM-100, the myQ server, the Wink (1st gen) Hub, and 3 Alexa devices, and 9 different apps on my iphone. I use two different brands of Apple/ihome compatible Wifi plug-in devices, one Cree WiFi bulb, and numerous X10 modules, switches, and other devices.

Everthing all seem to like each other.... and they all play well together.
 
Deciding to abandon a CM15A controlled by a Microsoft PC (and BVC) setup...…. and switch to a Homeseer Pi unit, and cloud/phone based setup.... wasn't exactly easy. But.... it was either keep exactly what I had with NO CHANCE of improvement or growth... or take a leap of faith. I am happy I went with AI. I am confident this is the direction that Home Automation is headed.
