How to Replace the Battery in Your Chamberlain Smart Garage Hub Door Sensor

The Chamberlain myQ® add-on sensor, which mounts to the top panel on the inside of your garage door, allows you to monitor garage activity, create alerts and be more in the know about your home and garage. It allows you to have peace of mind when you’re away from home that your home is protected. That’s why it can be frustrating and even worrisome when your myQ® sensor stops working.

Testing the myQ® Sensor

To get your myQ® sensor back in working order, LiftMaster® created an easy-to-follow video guide outlining the simple steps you can take to test and replace your myQ® battery.

Begin testing the sensor with the garage door closed. Once you close your garage door, follow the instructions below to test and replace your sensor’s battery:

  1. Press and release the battery test button on the door sensor. The LED on the door sensor will flash briefly, and your myQ® Garage Hub will beep.
  2. Perform this test six times.
  3. If the LED doesn’t flash or the hub doesn’t beep all six times, you’ll need to replace the battery.
