garage door opener

hey i dunno if this the right section but here you go...

a while back i read on someone's post (that i cant find anymore, unless i would be PMing them)... that they had their garage door hooked into their high beam and when ever they would flick it, it would trigger their garage door opener... does anyone know how to do this? or know who it was that posted that... cause I wanna be cool like them

I did this too, except I use my horn button to activate it. Just take your remote apart, find out what terminals the switch closes when it is pressed and close that circuit with a piece of wire. Then you need to determine the voltage the remote runs on and wire up a regulator to drop down from 12v to whatever the remote runs on. Then just wire up the positive and negative wires going to the regulator into your bike however you want.

Well it depends on what type of door opener you have.
I was lucky and mine ran on a little 12v battery. So all I did was open the back and solder a small wire across the switch to short it permanently on. Then I removed the battery and soldered wires to the pos/neg terminals and spliced them into the high beam pos/neg wires.
So when I switch on the high beams it supplies power to the opener and since the switch is always on it activates the opener. Hid the unit in the nose and job done.

If yours is not run with a 12v battery you'll need resistors or something and I think that's the way it's done in the "How To"

You need more than just resistors to lower to voltage on these garage door remote. Resistors would work if the load (garage door remote) was constant, but it is not. You need to make a regulator. The how to gives a diagram for building a regulator circuit with two resistors and am LM317 regulator.

I have the garage door opener operated by my horn and high beem.

Here is how it works.

1) Approach the house and press the horn and high beam buttons.
2) Wife gets of couch and opens garage door.

sometimes..

3) Greeted with a cold beer and a sandwich.

Best part about my system.....electrical work needed.

Seen those, good option but mine saved me $71.90 (I think I used 9 cents worth of wire and solder )

I have velcro on my tree for my lap timer, during the times im not on the track, the velcro holds my garage door opener which is pretty small. Works for me.

Guess I shoulda searched before I did mine! That would have helped alot haha.
But I did much the same as the guy at the bottom of the first page on that thread. I just soldered some wires from the opener board to a button and put it under the plastics next to my left thigh. This way works pretty well, yes you have to take your left hand off briefly but I found my opener works from quite a distance away. I just stashed the board and little battery in a ziploc sort of under the rear seat. Has worked well for a year, and many many washes.

I kept the remote running off its own battery and added a switch near the back of my right headlight. The remote itself is mounted behind my instrument cluster out of sight under the screen. This way I can use it before I turn the ignition on.

The garage door opener support guide takes the guess work and uncertainty out of finding the right replacement remote.

garage door opener

A garage door opener is a motorized device that opens and closes garage doors.
Door opener systems are required to have at least two safety devices that will assist in preventing the door from shutting on an obstruction (a car, a person etc.).
