Does myQ work with Alexa?

In many homes, Alexa adds a lot of convenience to doing everyday chores. Amazon’s voice assistant can adjust the temperature on a smart thermostat, turn on/off smart lights, play music on a smart speaker, or even lock/unlock doors.  Despite wide-ranging capabilities, Alexa lacks native support for certain types of home automation, notably garage door control.  This is where Chamberlain Group’s innovation steps in.
