Over the past few months, delivery services have experienced demand higher than the lead up to Christmas, as New Zealanders are turning to online shopping for essential supplies as well as items to help pass the time at home like gym equipment, toys, puzzles and art supplies.
“Many delivery companies, including food services are offering ‘contactless delivery’, where they’ll leave the parcel at your doorstep. But New Zealanders are hungry for a safer and more secure option,” says Grant Emanuel, Marketing Director International, Chamberlain Group.
So what if you could simply open your garage from your phone or Apple watch, let the courier in to leave the packages safely in your garage, and close it when they leave?
“myQ smart technology is designed to conveniently connect you to your garage whether you’re at home or away. With the myQ App, you can monitor and control your garage door right from your phone. If you’re self-isolating, in quarantine, or simply not home, you can let the delivery driver into your garage to drop off your parcels or food delivery safely,” says Grant.
To use myQ for your parcel delivery, you can simply leave a message in the delivery notes for the delivery driver to call or text you when they arrive, then all you need to do is open the myQ App to open your garage door once the delivery driver arrives, they place your package in your garage and you can safely close the garage door again from your myQ App. You can check out a video of how myQ technology works with no contact delivery here.
“The security of our garages is so important at the moment, especially since we are all at home more often! The myQ App has 24/7 monitoring and sends real time notifications whenever the garage door is open or closed,” says Grant.
“You can also check the status of your garage door and close it if you’ve forgotten, and you can even schedule the door to close at a certain time. Having the most advanced technology gives you peace of mind that your garage, and all your possessions inside it, are secure,” says Grant.
