MyQ garage door opener won't pair with eero
I am trying to connect my Chamberlin MyQ garage door opener to eero.
I was not able to get it to work via bluetooth, so I tried connecting the the webserver on the Hub ( setup.myqdevice.com ).
There it offers me three different connections for each of my primary and guest network. I have tried all 6 of them with WPA2-AES as the encryption.
The device will not pair with the eero not matter what I try. This is an older model MyQ, is this device known not to work with eero? It worked great with the most recent Airport Extreme tower that Apple made, so I am surprised it won't connect with eero.
I have the original MyQ and it works fine with eero.
I had to fiddle with the app of my new opener to get it to connect. Had to choose another type opener from the list of 3 or 4.
I know in the past I've seen posts similar to this. It's usually because the device is 2.4Ghz only and they can sometimes struggle with connecting. Best bet is to contact eero support. I know they'll be happy to assist.
I tried all the directions in the Chamberlain directions and none worked either to reconnect Eero wifi to the opener. Finally had to hold the wifi blue blinking light for 5 to 10 seconds until hear a beep which erased previous wifi. Then went through the set up and it worked finally. In all of Chamberlains descriptions, they dont state to do this. They talk about hitting the yellow button 3 times to turn on wifi or go through the contol on wall to start wifi mode. When doing this, it didnt connect until cleared the unit by holding down blinking wifi button. Hope this helps.
Glad it worked! Good information that the factory restore didn't even work and that Chamberlain wasn't any help. That's what these forums are for! Thanks for the update!
Tvlas's blue-button trick worked for me. Happy camper. :)
Same here, tried 15 times, not connecting, blue light kept blinking. Then read this thread. Tvlas was right, holding down the blue button for 6 seconds did reset something and then blue light stopped blinking, then started over again, and it connected.
I cant believe that I am like the rest of you and didn’t hold down the blue flashing button to reset it. Hahahahaha thanks to all of you! Drove me NUTS....
You need to have your phone connected to 2.4ghz Wifi. I unplugged nearest Eero unit which forced my phone to connect to Eero unit farther away from garage, and allowed me to finish setting up MyQ.
