Tod from d’innovative wanted a way to control his garage door remotely. Have a look at his Wifi Garage Door Opener Project Build for some inspiration when you are ready to build yours. If you are looking for some other options be sure to check out some of the ones we have featured in the past.

Thanks for sending this in Tod

“A wifi garage door opener that I just crafted based on a simple wifi microcontroller (Roving Network’s WiFly, 802.11b/g).

Includes a magnetic switch to detect door status and a web page interface that fits nicely on a smartphone. A pretty straightforward build — only took me a couple of weekends to conceive, craft, and install.”
