The Chamberlain Home Assistant integration is one of the quality-of-life integrations that I really appreciate in my home. From the simple things such as turning on the mudroom light when I open the door to the automatic locking of the door of my home when it shuts down. It's just great in that simplicity. It's also the way I currently integrate into my Google Home when MyQ disabled the Home Assistant integration.

I was very surprised when the integration wasn't connecting and recreating the integration couldn't get past the initializing stage. After some research, I eventually found the workaround on a GitHub post. The post is relatively long but I've summarized the steps below. This is defined from using a docker install but the steps should be similar for a regular install as well

docker exec -it homeassistant bash

cd /usr/local/lib/python3.11/site-packages/pymyq/
