RASPI Garage Door opener

This is a mashup of two projects, let me give the project creators credit.

RASPI gtalk Robot

Connecting a garage door remote to the Pi

What I did is use the hardware interface & the code to turn the pin high for one sec & the gtalk robot modified to work on a client.

This can be modified to work with any jabber client. It did not work for me with gtalk. :(

My other code tweak was to change from a single user to a list of users that are able to control the Pi & garage door opener.

Add the Pi User, Pass & list of admin accounts

Set the chat server address

Here is the modified code on github.

And here is the video on how it was done
