Android Garage Door Opener

Background Story

Help

You need two parts: the Android App (apk link; Android Market link) and the server app running in your house. Further, the server app needs to be connected to X10 hardware to toggle your garage door.

For the server software and docs on compatible hardware for your garage, see:

Notably:

Once you install you’re running the server, configure its URL on your phone as http://your-hostname-or-ideally-ip-address/garage. Note that the endpoint by default is /garage and the root “/” path is just a placeholder, in case you want to proxy the garage webserver behind another existing webserver on your home IP address (or dyndns hostname).

This reminds me of my old-school Uncle who is into wiring building, and installing elevators. We had some conversations with him about installing automatic garage doors. And, my reaction was like whoever needs automatic garage doors in the Philippines when there is always someone in the house to open the gate for them.

Anyhoo, we’ll never know. Maybe add that garage door opener to his automatic garage doors installation. Can I say expensive way to just open a gate?
