Raspberry Pi Garage door opener using jQuery Mobile and Flask. This was created because most samples I found were note able to both monitor door state and send commands to it. It also uses two switches to monitor open/close states.
This work is based on : Raspberry Pi control from mobile device or desktop web browser http://electronicsbyexamples.blogspot.be/2014/02/raspberry-pi-control-from-mobile-device.html
It was quite heavily hacked to offer :
- Ability to read states of 2 garage door switches (look after "zinc alloy garage reed switch")
- Ability to send commands to garage motor using a 3V Relay (look after "3v relay optocoupler")
I have a Creative Labs webcam around, I might try to add live streaming to monitor door remotely. For safety, I don't allow access to the RPi outside of home LAN (use VPN for remote control).
