Connected Garage Door Opener using Photon and Android

GarageBot: A Connected Garage Door Opener

Wanted to share my first Photon project, I created a connected garage door opener using a Photon and an Android app. The project uses a simple relay to open and close the door from the Android app, and a proximity sensor to detect whether the door is open or closed.

You can find the hardware specs, firmware, and Android code on hackster.


Looks good. Though you should probably have a flyback diode across the relay coil.

Thanks, and good call I will add a flyback diode.

Cool case. Haven’t seen those before.

Thanks for posting, simple yet elegant project.
