Works well for the most part. The only thing I don't care for is the door does not immediately close when you remotely close it. It waits a few seconds, then starts flashing the light and making an annoying beeping noise as it closes.
This does work with MyQ Liftmaster garage door openers, (I have the Liftmaster 8355 with MyQ), since Liftmaster and Chamberlain are the same but under different names. (Liftmaster for professional installers and Chamberlain for those installing themselves from Home Depot, etc.) Only thing is some Liftmasters and Chamberlains do not have a MyQ serial number on the garage door opener itself. If that's the case, you simply hold the "learn" button on the opener and it automatically syncs with the internet gateway in only a few seconds. Make certain to not select "add a wifi garage door opener in this case" during setup.
Last thing... use caution if you consider buying a gateway from Amazon Warehouse Deals. My original Gateway purchased turned out to have actually been used and the device's serial already registered with Chamberlain. I received a message saying that serial number had already been activated. I called support and was told it was now "bricked" and could not be used for obvious security reasons and I had to return it.
Overall all, nice to have because I never liked the idea of leaving my opener in my truck in case of theft so I think it's worth having.
