Chamberlain Garage Door + MyQ + Shortcuts Support… solved

I recently had to have new garage door openers installed. Purchased Chamberlain lifters with MyQ smart garage support. The lifters we bought do not support Home Kit, though there is an add-on hub that can be purchased for $70 to enable Home Kit connections.

I found the following Reddit thread with example shortcuts that almost* worked perfectly. They provide the access for opening/closing/status I was seeking via Shortcuts. Problem solved and saved $70.

I realize this use case may be on the edge, but sharing here for others who may have similar needs now or in the future. Cheers – jay
