Garage Door Opener Using A Raspberry Pi

Control garage motor from a smartphone or any device able to browse a webpage (with AJAX!). The project was started as I only had one remote for my garage. How fun was it to buy a second one? Not enough. My target was to be able to control and monitor my garage door from my smartphone with a single page. I haven’t put any fancy security around it as the RPi is not exposed outside of my LAN. Thereby I rely on VPN to access the web page. Using an Android smartphone it’s very easy to both setup a VPN and add a webpage to my homescreen. All i needed was the software for it.”
