The phone and watch apps enable control and ubiquitous access to your digital life/IOT from a variety of “Listeners” such as your Apple Watch, phone,SMS and Slack. SimpleCommands makes it simple to send commands to your connected “Items” like connected smartbulbs from LIFX and TP-Link, WIFI thermostats like Nest Labs and via Wink smarthubs, garage door openers like Chamberlain/Liftmaster myQ, and many other online products and services . It’s as simple as a couple taps in the SimpleCommands watch app, or a message via SMS/voice.
Step 1: Add your Connections
After you’ve created an account, it’s quick and easy to get going. Use the phone app to securely link your digital products and services (your “Connections”) to SimpleCommands. Once you have added a Connection, the Items from that Connection are immediately accessible via your Listeners and conveniently grouped by type/category.
Step 2: Enable your Apple Watch, SMS and other Listeners
Enable the Listeners you already use and SimpleCommands will help make them smarter. SimpleCommands makes ubiquitous access available from the app on your Apple Watch, via SMS, and through a number of platforms like Google Home, Slack, and others.
Step 3: Use SimpleCommands
Start sending commands! SimpleCommands allows you to communicate on your terms with your Items from anywhere, anytime.

Ratings and Reviews
I am an early adaptor so expect bugs up front. With that said login from watch was a tiresome fiasco. Once in and going found that while setting up my favorites and syncing it adds a new instance of everything in that favorite even if i didn't mess it. I now have 4 copies of each garage door (myQ) 4 fireplaces and 3 HVAC’s. No way to delete copies unless you start over and rename the favorite. BUT you have to on ALL favorites or they just increment instances each time. Good idea and can see this being worthwhile but buggy in its current release.
I’ll be happy to change my review after the above items are addressed. Until then, I recommend to stay away from this app.
Glitches are being worked out of Apple Watch
I have to commend the customer service and developer on working out the bugs in the Apple Watch for both MyQ and Wink locks. This is THE app and the ONLY app for Apple Watch access to your Wink-controlled Schlage Connect Locks as well as now MyQ garage doors.
John with the developer communicated promptly and worked out the bugs. Highly recommend this App.
