Garage door opener?

I'm trying to put a button a garage door opener button somewhere on the bike for the wife. On the CBR600 that I'm taking it off of, I built a momentary relay and hooked it up to the high beam switch. But that's a PITA to do, and didn't really work out for a couple of reasons.

So, what have you guys done?

Mini key-ring opener -- hangs on the bike key ring. $22 on Amazon. No wiring, portable, takes up no room... works.

Ba-da-boom.



But, r100's solution has its advantages... (shorter skirt might work, too).

On my cruiser I put the unit under my seat with a button under the lip of the tank. Unknown to me, the seat was pushing the button on the actual remote going down the road and killed the batter inside a couple months.

I move allot, but always have a garage door opener. In the last 6 years we have lived in 5 different homes in 2 states and we are finally building a home to settle down in e

With all of these, I have used a mini-opener on the keychain. I think each house had 3 different brand operiers but they all had a mini option.

I'm actually wondering the same thing, as I am in a condo which has 2 'requirements' -- a gate at street level, and the actual garage door. Considering I only have their 'iPhone-sized' opener, I'm looking for other options that can be programmed like HomeLink (have that in the car, and it works beautifully)

I am the Stig's father's brother's cousin's nephew's former roommate.

Will that work with a Chamberlain garage door opener? I have one of those keypads outside but it would just suck to have to get off my bike everytime I come home...
