Similar projects worth following
The Omega_garage simply controls your garage door and allows you to retrieve the doors state (open, or closed). Using nodejs and expressjs, a web server is hosted on the the Onion Omega. The server hosts an API that allows you to control your garage doors and request their states. This makes the Omega_garage easy to integrate with any other pre-existing smart home control hub.

omega_garage allows you to control your garage from anywhere in the world. You can view the status of your garage doors and control them with with an easy to use API. This project should be able to integrate with most smart home hubs (may need to implement authentication).

Now supports sending email notifications!

Possible Improvements:

Use nodejs to create a web gui that is naturally hosted along side the API.

    So the omega_garage has been running for a week or so now. I am yet to have an issue while interacting with the garage, either through http posts, or through the actual physical buttons to open the garage. So far so good, just waiting for a power outage to happen and see what happens!

    I figured someone had one out there, I just couldn't find you! It would be awesome to see your setup and source.

    This looks like it's a little more along than my own Onion Garage Opener, so fantastic! :) I'll look over what you have and share mine if there's any cross-improvements possible
