You will need a ladder to put the myQ hub on the ceiling for optimal operation and need adequate knowledge of how your existing garage system is set up. Expert installation is available and recommended by Elite Systems America due to the requirement of having good Wi-Fi Coverage in the garage. If Wi-Fi coverage is poor, the system will have trouble working and communicating with your phone and network. You will first need to test your network if its capable of supporting additional devices and secondly, make sure there is optimal coverage in your garage (enough to stream a video with little no buffering) before installation.
