use and old garage door opener and transmitter. The actual motor circuits in rush would destroy the electronics if you don't also have a control circuit. I.E, a low voltage circuit that brings in a coil that closes a set of contacts that will run your motor. The old garage door will already have all of that built into it's board. (the contact relay will be a black square on the board, usually made by potter brumfield or cutler hammer. The question is are you powering the controls with 110AC? Or are you using DC? Most boards just transform and rectify the 110 anyway, but you'll need to figure out where to tap into the board. If your using 110AC it should be fairly simple.

Otherwise, to be honest, I'd like to make something, not buy something. You know what I mean? Otherwise you lose the fun of putting it all together

yeh, thats a good idea. Thanks, but since I live in India and in the middle of a jungle on the Himalayas, its impossible to find an old garage door opener thing. I'll see if I can find something on ebay!

Yeah thank you Lemonie. I think I like the remote control one more, maybe because it is well written and I can understand it! But I wonder if it would be costlier, and could those ICs be found in dead telephones. I can live with the infra-red one but only if I could understand what I hav to do. Could someone please explain it to me.. thanks a lot ;)
