Or you could go here and build an app for that (for about the same price)

(presumably would work on Android and iphone and BB as the trigger is a webpage)

So he's a sleeper spammer then, planted himself here a year ago just waiting for a garage door question to come up. Tongue out

no ive been awake the whole time.
just get heaps of customers saying they got bad service or ripped off somewhere else.
e.g someone charging $1250 to install secondhand circuitboard for motor.
a brand new motor is around half that.
$750 to replace springs,that is more than triple what we i charge.
and the list goes on.

Those examples are pretty extreme but I've had a similar experience getting an old appliance repaired, I was told "it will be at least $200 if we can even get the parts", I took it somewhere else where they replaced the burnt out resistor and away it went for under $100.
