Garage door opener



Hi All,


Has anyone got any recommendation for connecting a garage door to Fibaro please?


The type of opener I have is the standard Avanti brand that normally opens and closes with using a wireless hand held FOB open/close.


What I would like is for Fibaro to detect that I am 1km away or entering geo fence - whatever the trigger is most reliable and the garage door opens. 

To close will be simply a momentary switch on the wall inside the garage.


I would also like to open and close the garage door from anywhere on my mobile phone since I have web cams to detect who is at the front door and another inside the garage. This will be so delivery guys arriving at home while I am away, can make deliveries as I watch them via cam.


Any recommendation please?

Many garage door openers have an external input. If yours does then you could use one of these
