My old observatory in Arizona used a Genie 1/2hp 3060L Directlift Plus screw-drive garage door opener. One thing I liked about it was that it had a simple "doorbell" wall switch that was easy to hook up to my Fosters System Controller for automatic door opening.
From what I am reading about the new garage door openers, I may not need to hassle with limit switches at each end of the garage door opener's run. The start and end of the run can be programmed within the opener's own internal computer (e.g. Genie MachForce opener). How nice! However, it includes a more complex wall-mounted unit and it doesn't look like I will be able to wire up my Foster Systems Controller as easily to this. Is anyone else successfully using one of these more "modern" garage door openers? If yes:
1. how were you able to hook it up to a Fosters System Controller or the like to open the door remotely via your computer?
2. what exact model number of garage door opener are you using to successfully open your ROR remotely?
3. What systems controller (e.g. Foster's, etc.)?
Thank you very much for any input you can provide.
