I'm posting this up here as there is a little interest. Having just purchased a house with a automatic garage door and getting frustrated with fishing around for the remote with gloves on, I went looking for a better way. I didn't want the remote or extra buttons on the handlebars, I wanted something neater, more integrated. Some internet research came up with a few options. There is one completely off the shelf jobbie that hooks up to the high beam circuit and has a reciever on the garage door (over $100). There is another that has some smarts and only triggers for a second with a high beam, but still needs you to replace the battery in the remote every once in a while (about $60 + remote) then there is the cheap and cheerful option that I used. You need to know how to use a soldering iron and a multimeter to get this happening. The basic steps were: 1. Buy cheap arse generic remote compatible with my garage door opener ($15 from ebay) 2. Program it to the garage door so it works in the usual way (1 minute) 3. Work out what voltage battery it uses (mine was 3v) 4. Buy a voltage regulator from Jaycar to step the 12v down to your voltage - not required if remote is 12v ($3) 5. Solder regulator onto remote where battery was, and run leads out for splicing into high beam circuit 6. Test by hooking leads up directly to 12v battery and press the button on the remote. Garage door should do its thing 7. Solder a small wire to either side of the button for operating the door so it's always 'pressed' 8. Test by briefly hooking up leads to 12v. Door should do its thing without button press 9. Wire into high beam circuit. Brief high beam should act the same way as pressing the button on the remote. 10. Tuck the remote up somewhere out of the way 11. Have a beer and survey your handy work. You will probably want to put the remote in a waterproof bag or something. Total cost is about $20. Time, maybe an hour. A caveat. High beam on is the same as keeping the button pressed down on the remote. 3v @20ma doesn't worry me. But it seems to be concerning to some. I don't have any photos, but I plan to replicate the same thing for the cage, so I'll take some pics if there is interest.
