Recently, Walmart announced that it was merging its InHome service with its Walmart+ membership. Potentially opening this service up to a much larger pool of customers. One of its many steps toward trying to compete with Amazon.
Now, the company is pushing this one step further by partnering with MyQ, a smart garage door company (and a division of Chamberlain) that has both garage door openers, as well as a smart hub. The latter of which can convert any garage door into a smart home connected device, allowing you to control or monitor the status of your garage door from anywhere just as if the opener itself was MyQ.
This new partnership will soon allow Walmart access to your garage (should you choose to allow them to, at least) so that its delivery drivers can securely place packages within your garage and close it behind them as they leave. A service that mimics that of Amazon Key. They will even stock your fridge or freezer if you have one in the garage.
It hasn’t fully rolled out just yet, so you do have to wait for both companies to properly get things sorted out and connected on both ends. Once they have done this, you will likely see an integration option pop up within the MyQ app (or something similar).
