Although possible with IFTTT, I would rather use homekit + siri to accomplish this.(This is way faster than an IFTTT trigger) You could also have it setup to open the garage as you drive up to your door without even using siri.
Eric, are you good with computers? If so, I would suggest spending some time(4-8hrs) and money($35) trying out homebridge. If not, let me know how I can help.
- Raspberry pi 3 - $35
- Power - $15
- Case - $10
I’ve created a homebridge(homekit) plugin for garadget. I also have a tutorial in the wiki section on how to install it on a Raspberry pi 3.
