Controlling your garage is not going to be hard as long as you get a decent garage door opener. They are many fancy garage door systems around. The RinkuHaus G-Link happens to be one that lets you open your garage with your headlights. You no longer have to worry about losing your garage door opener as long as you have your car. It works for motorcycles too. Just flash your headlights, and the RinkuHaus G-Link does the rest.
The RinkuHaus G-Link works on any car or motorcycle with a standard 12-volt electrical system. It is expandable too. This cool product is on Kickstarter at this time.
