With the app you can get alerts when your GDO opens and/or closes and set a daily schedule that will close the GDO at designated times in case you accidentally left your GDO open.

In addition, if you have Amazon Prime, this device will allow you to use the Amazon Key for Garage service, where Amazon will deliver your packages inside your garage safe and secure from thieves and bad weather. Amazon currently has the MyQ Smart Garage Hub as a limited time deal for only $30, 40% off their regular price: Amazon link

If you already have a Chamberlain or LiftMaster GDO you may be able to add this functionality by replacing your existing wall control panel with the LiftMaster MyQ Retrofit Package that contains the 888LM Control Panel and the Internet Gateway: Amazon link

I don't have either of these devices, but last year I replaced both my GDOs with the LiftMaster wall mount GDO, which includes the 888LM Control Panel, and offers the same functionality. Highly recommended!
This options cost around 70$. A wifi switch cost me 7$, I only added 3 feet of electrical wire to connect the switch to the garage door opener. The app is free and compatible with Alexa or Google Home
