    Craftsman is comming out with a retrofit kit that will allow people with older Craftsman openers to add the Internet service. It's suppose to be in stores August 2013. Sears isn't charging the annual fee any more so except for the harware the service is free.

    Craftsman's Garage Door app (thru Assurelink) has stopped sending notifications. Google Play Store is inundated with negative reviews lately on this with no answers... The help email box is no longer monitored.

    I called Assurelink, got transferred to Craftsman, who transferred me to Chamberlain. They are in fact asking all customers to move over from Assurelink to the MyQ app. You need to write down your Craftsman Hub serial number (10 digits without the leading letters), delete that device out of the Craftsman Assurelink app, sign up/sign into the MyQ app, then follow the steps to add the Craftsman Hub and link the garage door opener to that app instead.

    Would have been nice, with Craftsman having all our email addresses, if they would have shot us a notice to move over before just shutting down features; but what are you gonna do...

    That's actually a bummer. Didn't realize that it was that much of a hassle.
