Garage Light Relay System

Dan Jansen, Evan Westra

Sponsor: Dordt College engineering department

The Garage Door Light Relay enables a residential garage door opener to turn on the conventional lights in the garage to better illuminate the space and increase safety. The system uses wireless transmission to send signals from the garage door opener(s) to a receiver that operates a relay to control the lights while maintaining the functionality of the existing wall switches. It is designed to be installed without special tools or knowledge.
