OAK BROOK, Ill. and FRANKLIN, Tenn., Jan. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Chamberlain Group and Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) today announced myQ® Connected Garage is now part of the My Mitsubishi Connect platform of innovative services. myQ, a dynamic technology platform developed by Chamberlain Group that enables seamless smart access control, provides automakers like Mitsubishi Motors with the ability to integrate Smart Vehicle Access within their own connected service platform so drivers can safely open and close their garage door through convenient in-dash touchscreen control.
The technology will debut on the 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, the brand's sporty design and technology-forward compact SUV. A new 8-inch smartphone-link display audio (SDA) system comes standard on the Eclipse Cross, giving the driver better access to and control of features available through the My Mitsubishi Connect app, including myQ Connected Garage. The technology will also be available to 2018-2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross owners, through the My Mitsubishi Connect app.
"Today, drivers are limited by the ability to only open and close the garage door when they are within line of sight of the door," said James Trainor, Vice President General Manager of Automotive for Chamberlain Group, a global leader in access control solutions with its Chamberlain and LiftMaster garage door opener brands and myQ connected technology. "We are thrilled to partner with Mitsubishi Motors to help enhance the driver experience when it comes to garage control. myQ Smart Vehicle Access allows Mitsubishi to integrate smart garage control capabilities within the car's in-dash touchscreen, allowing drivers to safely control, secure and monitor their garage door from wherever they are on their journey. With myQ Connected Garage, they can stay connected to home and know that their garage is secure."
