    Raspberry Pi Garage Door Opener

    Completed the project but just one little issue that I found.I have a LCD garage door remote that has time/temperature and light option and when I leave it connected to the garage door and when pressing the button through the web interface the relay clicks all the time but sometimes the garage door won’t open. When I remove the stock garage door remote wire from the garage door system everything works perfectly.I am assuming there is an issue with the flow of current and if I assume if I use a regular push button then it wont be an issue but in this case it is a LCD remote that has features on it and all running on one wire to the garage door. Anybody seen this issue and if so what did they do to fix it, I have a craftsman die hard garage door opener. Would I need an resitor somew...see more »Completed the project but just one little issue that I found.I have a LCD garage door remote that has time/temperature and light option and when I leave it connected to the garage door and when pressing the button through the web interface the relay clicks all the time but sometimes the garage door won’t open.
