Want to use a pet door as garage vent.

I am a renter and have a 2 car garage with a pet door in between. The garage stays pretty hot even with a fan running. I needed to vent some of this hot air. I thought I could take a box fan and design some sort of ducting to allow the hot air to be sucked out and cooler air in and also prevent the pets from escaping. I figured I could remove the plastic grill and attaching the duct to the screw holes left from the grill removal. Not so great with geometry but needed to slope the duct box doen to the rectangular shape of the pet door. Any thoughts?

Where can I get a schematic for a Chamberlain 5200 UBC garage door opener ?

I know the remote control is working as when I push the open/close button I can go on the main cct. board and see the signal on pin 14 of the LM2902. I can also trace the signal to pin 12 of the micro. The micro should do several things,  check whether the door is open or closed, apply power to the relay motor, apply power to the relay motor to open or close the door. The controller works in the manual mode ok, i.e. I can open or close the door, turn on or off the light. It is very difficult to trace the circuit board as it has a ground plane on the top of the board and SM components on the bottom side of the board. I am unsure of two things, first the signal going to the micio is about 1 Vpk-pk and not the normal logic level or 0 and 5v, but if this input to the micro is set as an analog signal then level may not be an issue. Secondly I cannot determine what output pins on the micro control the power relays as it is almost impossible to trace the cct.    Anyway any help would be greatly appreciated ... thanks in advance and take care ...Vic

Automated Garage Door Timer

I have the bad habit of leaving my garage door open sometimes. To come home with your garage wide open is pretty scary. So I was thinking of this idea...  The garage automatically closes after 5 minutes. But that's pretty annoying so I figured you could install a switch underneath the garage door opener that will leave the garage door open. Any ideas on how this could be done or more suggestions? Thanks!

What could go wrong in a standard garage door opener?

Hello there, I have been asked to try to repair a malfunctioning garage door opener. The man who handed them to me said all of the modules work for a few weeks, then suddenly stop working. I opened them, looking for any burnt component, dry solder joints, tested relays in search of a stuck one, but could find nothing. I tested them at home, and they all reliably clicked their relay on and off, as expected. So the question is, what would cause ordinary garage door openers to fail? I thought about a bad powerline (circuits are 50's era in his building, and have never been redone), but have no means to check it. In the same direction, I was looking for a different model garage door opener, and only found two alternatives: one is the run-of-the-mill SkyLink stuff, expensive, reasonably secure, the other is the dirt cheap Chinese-made remotes with no hint about security. Since this is Instructables, I looked for garage door opener projects, but most are so-called "smart" and need a reliable Internet access, both on the smartphone and on the receiver module. Since this is a multi-tenant building and my country is known to be among the most expensive for internet access 1. there's no easily accessible Internet in the garage 2. drivers can't be assumed to have a smartphone and even if they do, 3. Internet access on a cell phone is extremely expensive. The other question would then be: have any of the community members here saw a garage door opener that would: 1- only need easy-to-make RF remotes? 2- be at least as secure as the original SkyLink? 3- require no Internet access?

Garage door safety sensor wiring?

What I want to happen is for the motor to remain off until the beam is crossed. Once crossed I want it to spin and to keep spinning until I disconnect it.

How to prevent gasoline fumes from seeping into my house/garage from a neightbours garage?

Hi all, Back again with another issue regarding the money pit. I live in a townhouse and my neighbours have two motorcycles in their garage. They leak gas and I am guessing pretty badly because I cam smell it in my home. When their garage hasn't been opened in awhile it's fine, but when it opens, I am supposing the pressure builds up and BLAMO It comes through the vents in the house or around the vents in the house. My garage even smells strong of gasoline and I have nothing in it that uses gas. Is there anything I can do? Besides to obvious and talk to the neighbours, and the condo corp, two things I have already done. It wasn't bad in the summer because they were in and out and the windows were open so there was less pressure, however, when I arrived home last night it smelled like a flippin gas station in there! I am waiting to hear from the condo corp, trying to be proactive because clearly this issue isn't one they are tending to with immediacy

Genie model 209 Garage Door Opener schematic

I took our Genie garage door opener apart [the light wasn't working and I read where that was probably caused by the 555 timer] and thought I'd carefully drawn a schematic before doing so, but I failed to label where the 3 wires from the receiver connect to the terminal block on the main unit, and also where the 3 wires from the main unit connect to the terminal block. Regardless, I have the unit back together and when the remote is pressed the receiver relay clicks, but that's the only thing that happens. I'm fairly certain the problem lies with a component on the internal motor controller board. And NO ONE gives out this kind of information. I can't even find it for sale !! But I'll be derned if I'm going to pay $50 for a new controller board when I'm almost 100% certain the problem is a $.59 diode or the like. Plus, I like a challenge and hate getting beat. Any and all help would be very much appreciated. Possibly I could find someone who has the same model unit and they could diagram theirs for me, possibly someone knows where to obtain the real thing.

Safety of your garage door or car remote...

No time and no pics for a proper Instructable, so I just put out some word of warning ;) Around here bad people take advantage of the fact that a lot of new houses have the garage right next to the house. With these you usually also get a door so when you park your car you don't have to get out of the garage again. All controlled by the press of a button on the remote... Some fancy guys got a device working similar to the IM-ME Open Sesame hack a few years back. But unlike the original author the new guys found ways to make money by providing working "universal garage door openers" on dubious websites. Problem with the new model is that it not only fakes a remote with dip switches but also the newer models with so called "rolling code", "intellicode", "changing code" and so on. The old remotes with dip switches should actually by phased out years ago by any owner who values his stuff... But the new models are still deemed secure and next to impossible to hack - well if you trust the advertisement... How does the code hacking work? The old dip switch models allow for a maximum of just over 4000 different codes and come in just 3 or 4 frequency bands. No real problem for anyone with basic electronic and coding skills to hack these - as shown with Open Sesame. The new models all use a so called rolling code, here the remote and opener are paired through 32 bit of ID code and an encrypted part that changes every time. Both remote and opener calculate the next code once a button was pressed or a code received. To overcome reception problems the base usually calculates the next 256 codes in advance - and that is the entry point for bad boys. The illegal device scrambles the frequency detected while storing the code received by the orignal remote. As the door did not open the owner will try to press the button again. Still scrambled to opener does nothing - until the device sends out the first recorded code! Now the owner can drive in and is happy. Of course he still needs to close the garage - again all is scrambled and the code stored as before. You see where this is going.... It is even possible to set the amount of required tries to capture, so in theory a bad guy could get the next 10 or codes in advance for use once the owner is gone out... Worst thing however is that these illegal devices not only open garage doors but also cars as a lot of them use similar systems for their remotes - up to the point of starting the car with it. Took me only 2 hours with Google translate to find a website outside the usual search results that offers these "gadgets", along with WiFi and cell phone jammers, credit card copy devices and more things I don't want know about... What can you do to protect yourself? First check what type of remote your system uses - if there are DIP Switches than replace the remote system or the entire device in favour for something more secure. If you already have a rolling code model that you are far better off but sadly no longer totally safe here. A lost remote should not only be replaced but the old one removed from the system as well - you never know if you just lost it or someone took your remote ;) Alternatives exist, especially if you are not afraid of doing some open heart surgery on the electronics of a garage door opener. You can add a WiFi module and use your mobile phone to open the garage - search Google if you like the idea ;) Another very neat way is using a second transmitter that keeps the relay for activating the opener from working. This can be anything from a BT module paired with your phone or cars BT system over a keycard to numberplate recognition cams. A good system also allows for a "holiday mode" or similar. Here you can set this mode with one remote until you deactivate it with the same remote the system will not react to anything. Great if you leave the house for more than a day or two... As a last resort you can always get a big and angry dog to sleep in your garage.... What if you are renting or a bit limited with the electronics and soldering skills? Not all is lost if you can accept a second remote for added safety. These days you can get plug in converters for your mains voltage outlets that work with a remote control. Unless they use Infra Red for this they are great to disable your opener. Simply plug it in where the power cord for the opener is and then plug the cord into it as well ;) Now you can fully shut off the opener with the press of a button and only if the power outlet is switched on the opener will work. If in doubt you can use a double outlet adapter an extension cord and a night light to indicate wether or not the opener has power. Ok, and what about the door lading from the garage into the house? Well, of course keep it locked and if you are home also keep it locked. At least this way you have some extra time in case someone tries to enter through your garage while you are sleeping ;)

How build a cost-effective device that automatically clears exhaust fumes out my garage?

Soon I'm going to move into a building which shares living quarters with a garage. I'd like to rig up some sort of relay-triggering device that opens a nicely sealed set of vents (one intake, one output) and activates a fan exhausting garage air  - one that activates the minute I open the garage door, and then continues exhausting fumes for a few minutes after I drive the car away (and close the garage door). After those couple of minutes, the fan would stop, and the vents seal shut Due to the "lay of the land" (garage right off a busy road, with very short hidden driveway) I will be backing the car in, so exhaust gases will be concentrated at the back of the garage (close to living areas) - rather than near the open garage door. And as my car has a turbocharger, I often need to let it idle for a minute or two ( to let the turbo cool down) before turning it off to park. So it would be most useful to be expelling those exhaust fumes out of the garage! The question is - what's really the most simple and cost-effective platform for this kind of a system? Could a 555 timer, a few discrete components and some relays do the job elegantly? Or am I better off just diving into Arduino-Land?? Any related ideas (solenoid-closed vents, efficient fans, ducting through walls, etc ) that are especially thrifty - would also be greatly appreciated!!!

Storage Space for Parts

I'm sure me and Skunkbait aren't the only ones who have kept car or motorcycle parts in odd places.I hear my dad kept a motocycle in his living room for years, because the place didn't have a secure garage. For a little while, if you wanted to sit while watching TV, you had to sit on the bike or the floor, because there was no other furniture. Plus, it's just priceless to be able to ride out your front door.I know some folks who keep spare electical bits like turn signals and partial wiring harnesses laying around the house. Hanging on doorknobs. Apparently, bachelors, those aren't just for hanging underwear anymore.There have been a few times that the chainsaw and lawnmower had to live in the house so a visiting motorcycle could live in our shed.Generally, whenever I get a new part or tool home, it has to spend some time just sitting around while I try to figure out what the best way is to use it. Or just figure out why it looked like a good idea to buy another timing light.I've been known to hang particularly sexy motorcycle parts on the wall. I spent a lot of time trying to get a 10-120 speedometer from a Volvo to work as a clock one time. That didn't work, but it did make a good paperweight.Where have you kept parts, and why?
