App to open garage door

I know there are a few out there, but anyone know of any good and inexpensive ways to do so? This would be great for pulling up and leaving when on the bike.

its easier to wire a remote switch into your garage door opener, and stash it under the seat or somewhere safe. I used to have a momentary switch drilled in and mounted next to my horn button.

i would imagine you would need to have some form of wifi system to do it. I don't think that a phone has the required signal generator to send the open / close by it self. I could be wrong though.

lol....I just blip the throttle a couple of times and get either the dog or the kid's attention, then the LW opens the door

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

The dog can't open the door and I live alone. I'm trying to avoid getting a new opener and have less crap to carry around and be taking up space.

The alternative then is to get a keypad to mount outside the garage door. They are universal and cost about 35 bucks at Menards. But then you have to get off the bike to enter the code.

As stated above, your best and easiest option is a key chain remote or a kepad opener outside of your garage. Or you can get all hitech and do this http://mydooropener.com/index.html

How lazy can you be? LOL.. I have to jump a 6' privacy fence because the gate is locked. If I leave the gate unlocked the little mexican kids in the hood come in my yard and risk falling in the pool so their parents will sue me or getting eaten by my dog so their parents will sue me.

Like others said. Keychain remote. They are as small and light as your cars remote unlock. I should have done a group buy when I worked for the garage door company. I may be able to do it still but would have to talk to the boss. At the time they wanted $30 for them with my discount (sold to public for $48) but you can get them for around $20 on ebay.
What kind of opener do you have and what color is the "learn" button on the back? If it's liftmaster, chamberlain or craftsman it will be green for the older models, red for newere or purple for the even newer models.
If its chamberlain it looks like this

I have the key fob one for ours. Although it can be a bit fun trying to hit the middle button with gloves on while moving. Damn thing has some serious range though.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

Do you only have one door? If so, you can program all three buttons. I used to do that for customers so that when they have the remote on the visor and they can't see it they don't have to fiddle to find the one button. You can just press your thumb down across the buttons and you are bound to hit one of them.
