Going from garage remote to iOS HomeKit

This repository serves as an example and will probably not be updated or maintained. Clone and customize!

What this is:

A way to convert a standard home garage door opener to an IoT device that works with Apple products from anywhere in the world.

Folders:

Gist:

  1. A standard garage door remote is programmed to work with the garage door
    • The battery is replaced with power from the Feather
    • The button functionality is replaced with a transistor, triggered by an output from the Feather
  2. The output is triggered by an HTTP call to the Feather over the wireless network
    • For convenience, the Feather's blue LED is lit when it's connected
    • Red LED is lit when something goes wrong
  3. Homebridge is running on a dedicated computer that's running Docker
    • Via the Http plugin for Homebridge, we can communicate through HomeKit to the Feather
