myQ – AKA Santa’s Helper
Why is it that I call this little gem “Santa’s helper?”
Here’s the deal. Santa? He’s a busy, busy man. And the reality is that just as the rest of us seem to get busier and busier as the years go by, Santa is the same.
So Santa has been pleased as punch with the advent of online shopping and home delivery services. In the recent past, Santa has been sending presents here AHEAD of the holidays.
Spoiler Alert: Santa’s An Amazon Prime Member, Too
Yep. Santa uses Amazon. He’s a Prime member. And me? I’m just one of Santa’s humble little elves doing what I can to keep the spirit of Christmas alive and well.
And that’s where myQ comes into play.
In years past, I’d sometimes have to hurry home ahead of the school bus and shuttle packages to all my little hiding spots quicker than a six-year-old sneaking down the stairs at midnight on Christmas Eve.
I’d be sweating like a swine by the time the kids walked through the door. And when they’d say, “Mommy, what did you do today?” I’d borrow one of their tricks and reply with a simple, “Nothing much.”
No more sweating holiday surprises getting ruined, Mama…
With an easy-breezy mouse click on the delivery options screen on good ‘ol Amazon, I can now select “in-garage delivery” for all the things that Santa sends our way.
And THEN, I add delivery instructions…
for the trusty Amazon driver to tell him exactly where to leave my packages.
In the lead up to the holidays, I’m finding this new service VERY useful for keeping my elfy secrets very safe.
Amazon Drivers Are Santa’s Elves, too!
I can tell the driver to stash my goods in a spot the kids won’t guess. I know! Amazing. Or as Run-DMC would say, “tricky, tricky, tricky.”
Once I’ve told the folks at Amazon where to deliver the goods, I just have to sit back, relax and let Amazon and our myQ-connected garage door opener do the rest.
When a delivery is made, this is what shows up on my iPhone…
What’s awesome is that if I’m not home right when things are delivered, I don’t have to worry anymore about them disappearing before I get home.
Or getting snowy or wet.
Once the coast is clear, I grab the goods from the secret spot in the garage and turn on elf mode.
After Your Amazon Key In-Garage Delivery? It’s Elf Mode Time…
You know how that goes. As Santa’s helper that could mean assembling, making sure the appropriate batteries are on hand, wrapping, and of course, hiding the stash till the big night.
Although, sometimes North Pole deliveries are just TOO exciting to be kept secret until December 25. ESPECIALLY when the special delivery is none other than ⤵️
The man, the myth, the legend himself! Jolly old St. Nick.
So if Santa tends to send lots and lots of things to your house before the holidays, too, then you may want to get your garage myQ-connected for Key by Amazon in-garage delivery so you can start getting your own Prime orders delivered right inside your garage.

Happy holiday shopping fellow elves!!
