    I was sitting around and thought of a good program idea. how about a program that would allow the Treo's radio to emulate a signal to open your garage door.

    We have an keypad mounted on the outside of the house that allows you to type in a code to open the garage door. Lastnight when I got home the damn batteries on it had died and I found myself locked out of the house. I had to walk around back and use my old-fashion key...lol.

    if I had a garage door opener on the Treo, I would have been ok. Does anyone know if this is even possible?

    not possible.. Treo radio does not transmit the frequency required and no garage door I know of is IR...

    Now I could use that!

    I've been locked out due to power outage and the garage door opener would not work.

    Huh ?

    With power out to the door opener, had would another transmitter help ?

    Don't think so because it would need power that we would not have since our backup power is only to our alarm system.

    What ? A transmitter in your car or anywhere is useless if the motor used to lift your door has no power.

    Yeah, I think the openers operate on RF and the Treo only has IR.

    This may actually be possible. I haven't really had the need so haven't researched it to much.
