Oak Brook, Ill., January 12, 2022 — myQ® is looking to change the way people see their garage with the Garage Master docuseries that reveals unique ways everyday people are transforming their garage into a space where they can pursue their passions. Through an ethereal, fly-on-the-wall style of filming, the six-episode series transports viewers into a new reality that opens the door, literally and figuratively, to fresh and exciting possibilities via the garage. The first three episodes are now available to watch at myq.com/garagemaster, with the second three episodes coming soon in February.
“For most people, the garage is an underutilized space. Yet, we’ve seen a growing movement among homeowners wanting to make their garage more functional. A shift that has really taken hold during the pandemic,” said Steve Swanson, Director of Brand & Creative for Chamberlain Group, a global leader in access control solutions with its myQ® smart technology and LiftMaster® and Chamberlain® garage door opener brands. “Sure, you can store your car or your junk in the garage. But our Garage Masters have shown us that this is untapped bonus space just waiting to be transformed. We want to inspire homeowners to change how they see the garage and turn it into a place to explore a passion, gather with community, or bootstrap a business. We could all use a little inspiration these days. Why not start with the garage?”
