Idea for Automatic Door/Gate Opener
So I have this idea, and I'm wondering if a) it sounds easy to do and b) if anyone has done it. But I know it's possible.
I'd like to have GPS monitor my position, and when I get within a certain distance of the gte to my apartment complex, FB sends a signal to a relay that will trigger my gate opener. This could work for garages too.
Yes, I realize it's a simple push of a button, but my theory is if it's something that is repeated based on a certain set of rules then a computer should be doing it.
So what's your thought on this outside-the-box idea?
