My dad has tasked me with a mission of figuring out if there's a way he can effectively 'upgrade' an old garage door he has that doesn't have remote capabilities. The only way to currently open the door is to press a button on the wall. I've shown him some of my smart plugs that I have set up with home kit and that's what sparked his curiosity on essentially retrofitting it to be remote controlled. Does anybody know of a way to do this? He's not interested in spending the money on an entire new garage door opener system. It's a single car garage that he stores his 'baby' (Trans Am) in. So he doesn't take it out very often, but when he does he hates having to get out and go inside to shut/open the door. I was thinking someone probably made something that would help in this situation. Say something that is wired where the existing button is and it itself can be controlled by remote or phone. Heck, even something that goes over it and presses the button like a robot would work. It doesn't have to be home kit compatible, but that would be a bonus. My dad is much more hands on and technical than me, as he works in the coal mines and holds his electrical card, so even if it's a solution that requires new wiring/work like that he would be able to do it. We just don't know if a product exists that would do what he's needing it to. I don't participate in many online forums, but I thought maybe someone here would have suggestions.
