Control your garage door via WiFi interface

Posted on Thursday, January 26th, 2012 in project logs by DP

This WiFi garage door controller is based on an RN-XV WiFi module, a small WiFi capable microcontroller with 8 GPIOs, and 3 ADCs.

The inspiration for this project was simple. My daughter has a habit of forgetting her house key, and we’ve had mixed results with the wireless garage door opener keypad. Time for a new solution. Plus, it’s a great excuse to play with electronics!!! She has an iPhone and it never leaves her side, so that seemed like a reasonable interface to use. Plus, if I network attached it, I could do some other nifty things like control it from the office.
