I am trying to find a gadget like a standard RF garage door opener, but one that does not require the person in the car to push a button on a remote.  Rather Im looking for an “active” system that detects the car when it gets close, identifies the car, and activates the garage door.  Sort of like a tool booth gadget the ID’s the car when it goes through the tool booth.
My searches in the usual places has not turned up anything.
THANKS,
Grayson

Use a wireless driveway sensor with a relay output closure output to your existing garage door switch/circuit.  You could check with suppliers such as Smarthome for a plug in type, something like X10 or other wireless utility system.

Grayson,

OBID has their ID ISC LRU 3000/3500 fixed UHF-based readers that are good to about 35 feet.  See http://www.feig.de/index.php?id=219&L=1 for more information.

Regards,

In Europe we have an in-car unit that sends a gate command when the car reaches a specified position the it detects by GPS.
It sends an installer programmed code on 433.92MHz so not sure whether this will work, or be licensable where you are.
The manufacturer is http://www.v2home.com and the device is called Zenit.
